You won’t see as many European cars on the SEMA show floor as their American counterparts, but that doesn’t mean that the cupboard is dry as far as Euro representation is concerned. One German model that’s making the trip to Vegas is the BMW 335i and it’s doing so by way of H&R Springs.

H&R Springs have really perfected the craft of building programs that may not look fancy from the outside, but completely overwhelm the rider once he straps on and goes for a ride in one of them.

That’s what they managed to accomplish with their set-up of this BMW 335i. There’s nothing on the outside that makes you think somebody did work on it, but once you get inside and feel the improved handling dynamics of the car, you’ll be convinced that this car was provided with an upgrade.

That’s the beauty of H&R Springs. They’re not about the style; they’re about the substance.

Exterior and Interior

The first order of business was the installation of a BMW M Performance Aerodynamics Package, which includes a special M front spoiler with splitter, side skirts, and a rear diffuser.

From there, a new set of 20" special white O.Z. Ultraleggera HLT wheels were fitted and wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The wheel-and-tire set-up also gets the benefit of new Brembo high-performance 4-piston aluminum calipers for the front and 2-piston aluminum calipers for the rear. These brakes are also from the M Performance parts program, which explains the bright orange color and the BMW M logo.

As the top-of-the-line BMW, the 335i is powered by a 3.0-liter six-inline engine that produces a total of 306 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 295 lb/ft of torque between 1,200 and 5,000 rpm. This impressive output allows the car sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds, although top speed has been limited to 155 mph.

Chassis and Suspension

From there, H&R Springs added their very own Street Performance Coil Over suspension, which effectively lowers the ride height by 1.4" on the front and 1.6" on the rear, thus creating a more enhanced look to the BMW while also improving chassis dynamics.
