Project Greyhound: Introduction

Hi all,

My name is John and I just wanted to introduce myself and my 2014 LCI 535i. Some of you may know me from E90post but those days are in the past as I am now parting out my 335i to make room for the 535i

Photos courtesy of EAS, enjoy!

Another former e90 owner, how do you like the bigger f10?

And already started the modding I see.

Loving it so far. The comfort and luxury is so many levels beyond my old e90.

I do miss the power and agility of a fob N54 though. Makes me wish I would've stepped up to the 550i instead.

How do you like it? Saw the nappa on a dealer lot with that great stitching and had to have it. My 550ix is due next month and I went with same space grey and mocha interior. Always had dark bmw's but decided to mix it up once I saw Alan I's car on the forum.

I like it a lot. The nappa leather is heaps better than dakota leather when it comes to the feel. The mocha color is also just right in that it's understated and not in your face.

Love the car Jz!

Hey Nubs... I just ordered my SG/Mocha 550ix yesterday. I pick it up via ED in June.

I hope you don't have plans to add black 20" Forsgestar CF10's...Vorsteiner diffuser, Hamann front lip, BMW M-Perf spoiler, CF grills, tint... And Dinan tune and exhaust.

I haven't seen any SG M-Sports in the area....... So I guess now we'll have a couple running around. Lol

The door handles are wrapped and the fender trim is painted. Search my threads I have a DIY for them.

The tint is 25% all around.

Boom! Love it . Looks stockier than standard but might just be the overhead shots. Can you give us the deets on the BBS rims (size and tyres you're running on them). Vehry noice.

I assume the BBS are 20x9 ET29 and 20x10.5 ET35, correct me if I'm wrong Jz.

looks great. the e90 was a looker and this f10 is no different! i love the LCI LED headlights. you are modding it nicely! i know what you mean about the agility of the e90 over the f10. the f10 is a nice highway car though.

John, Are you running spacers in the front? 20x9 Et29 does not sit that flush.
