BMW 335i

October 7th, 2007 Comments off

I expected to have most of the modifications done to my 335i by now but it’s taken a bit longer than expected. Since I posted last, I’ve gotten the suspension dialed in where I want it: raised the ride height a bit as well as stiffened up the compression/rebound on the dampers. I had a Kerscher Spirit front bumper and splitter installed as well as a rear spoiler (OEM clone). I’m still missing the tow hook cover for the front end. I actually got one painted and ready to go and then managed to push the little cover right thru the hole and it’s sitting inside the bumper now! I’ve got to get that taken care of and also getting the LUX angel eyes installed sometime soon. I’ll take some before and after pictures of the angel eye LED replacements as soon as I get the remaining work done. I used Daniel Cook over at Transparent Bra again to get a clear bra put on the front end to keep things neat and tidy!

Tein Basic Coilovers & Oettinger front griile installed

September 23rd, 2005 Comments off

Roko over at Topline installed the Tein Basic Coilovers and Oettinger front grille that I ordered. I got the Tein’s from Eurocode Tuning. Topline ordered the grille from CEC Wheels and then painted the slats to match my color. I also got the Neuspeed rear sway installed.

So far I really like the ride though the Tein’s are a little lower than I’d like. I’m going to go back in a week to get the ride height increased a bit, which will require another alignment.

At this height, the ride feels a little harsher than stock though a lot tighter in turns. The rear sway definitely makes a difference as I don’t feel like the front end is plowing through turns anymore (then again could just be the COs).

Oettinger bumper installed

September 10th, 2005 Comments off

Take a look at these some before / after pictures of my S4. So far, I’ve replaced the stock rims with 18″ Oettinger RZ wheels, replaced the front bumper with an Oettinger front and also swapped out the stock exhaust for a Milltek resonated exhaust. Lastly, I put in a Hyperflow intake and swapped the stock fog light bulbs with Hoen Xenonmatch’s instead.

I had the Oettinger front bumper installed by Topline Automobile in Burlingame, CA. The Oettinger is much more of a pain in the ass than you’d like on an S4 as the bumper is actually made for an A4. Things you’ll pay for: bumper, getting in painted, buying stock A4 fog lights, installation. Installing the bumper is relatively straightforward except for two things: 1) having to cut the plastic air dams to allow for the installation of the A4 fog lights and 2) the headlight washer caps from the S4 bumper don’t quite fit the Oettinger. On the latter you can either source A4 washer caps or modify your stock S4 caps.

The Audi part #’s for the right A4 fog lights are: 8E0-941-699-B and 8E0-941-700-B
