CHALLENGE – F30 335 / 328 Product Development Begins!
Over the weekend we started to tear into our F30 335i sport to see what improvements we can make to the cars power train and other mechanical systems. Naturally, we got her up on a lift so we can give the car a good look over to see what stands out as needing improvement over the stock equipment. We plan on offering a full line of performance and cosmetic enhancements for both the F30 335 and 328i models, with some parts crossing over between the 2 models. F30 M sport and M3 parts will of course follow once the car is released. We took a handful of photos so you guys can see what your new car looks like and have a reference to what we’ll be developing moving forward.Exhaust and Down Pipe ( Cat )The factory exhaust is actually already a full 3inch unit minus a few small areas where its pinched down a bit here and there. The main restriction point is the rear canister it would seem. The valve system on the canister also help keep it on the quiet side and restricts flow for most of the low to mid RPM range. New on the F30 is the valve system, is now electronic. The previous was a vacuum based system. A bottle style resonator is also used in the mid pipe for keeping sound in check
