Raul Z brought in his alpine white F30 BMW 335i the other day to give the car a few cosmetic mods and the drop it needed to match the set of wheels it already had. The F30 is a handsome sedan, to be sure, but as Raul found, the wheelgap of the factory F30 suspension is sufficient for a frigging 4×4. Raul gave the Mod Experts a call – ModBargains Co-Founder Ron helped Raul out with coordinating the install.
To give the car the drop it needed, Co-founder Ron suggested Raul go with a set of H&R Sport Springs for BMW F30 335i. The H&R springs drop the ride height of the car 1.75 up front and 1.6 in at the rear of the car to completely eliminate that unsightly excessive wheelgap. From back here, we can also appreciate the look of the Performance Style Carbon Fiber Trunk Spoiler for BMW F30 we installed to give the back end a bit more flair.
The stance of the car with the H&Rs seems to be “just right” – level both at the front and rear, without the ‘raked’ look that can sometimes occur with just a lowering spring.
Giving the front end a more aggressive aesthetic is a V2 Carbon Fiber Front Lip for BMW F30 M-Sport. The Carbon Fiber splitter features two ducts to channel air to the brakes and creates a motorsport-derived kind of look.
Here’s the side profile on the V2 Carbon Fiber front lip – it doesn’t extend much further past the front end of the bumper meaning you don’t need to be as scared of parking curbs.
The front splitter looks amazing in conjunction with the Beyern Spartan 19×8.5 / 19×9.5 wheels.
Here’s a closeup of the Performance Style Carbon Fiber Trunk Spoiler for BMW F30. The carbon fiber weave looks especially nice. Don’t mind the painter’s tape – the 3M Automotive Trim Adhesive securing the spoiler needs a few hours to properly set and cure, so painters’ tape is used to help keep things in position after install until the adhesive sets. The ducktail turn-up to the end of the spoiler really “rounds out” the back end of the F30.
From this low oblique angle, you can get a good idea of exactly how the car sits on a 19×8.5 / 19×9.5 with H&R Springs.
Though the Beyern wheels aren’t common, with a bit of input from Co-Founder Ron, Raul’s put together one clean looking F30 335i.
