A little bit goes a long way.
Sometimes, you don’t need all the glitz and glamor of a carbon fiber aerodynamic kit and a hardcore engine upgrade package with forced induction and more power than your tires can handle as you sit inside your racing bucket seat, surrounded by a bare-bones interior and roll cage. Sometimes, it only takes a few minor upgrades to let you fall in love with your car even more, and the team at Best-Tuning has shown that with their latest BMW 435I xDrive.
Instead of some in-your-face body kit with flared wheel arches, massive wheels, and spoilers galore, Best-Tuning decided to keep it simple with a new set of Schmidt Revolution wheels to improve the overall look of the 435i xDrive. The German coupe was fitted with a set of Schmidt Revolution Gambit wheels in a staggered 8.5 x 20 front and 10.0 x 20 rear setup with 235/30-20 and 275/25-20 tires. The grey coupe wears the wheels in a smooth satin black finish with brushed outer rim stripe to complement the exterior.
As an added bonus, the BMW 435i xDrive can be paired up with some new KW coilovers for a better fitment setup and more dynamic handling. All three KW coilover variants from 1-3 are available for installation and provide varying levels of handling performance and adjustability from the casual spirited driver to the hardcore track rat.
Even the 3.0-liter, turbocharged inline-six cylinder engine gets a boost thanks to Best-Tuning. The standard 302 horsepower goes up to 360 ponies with a basic software tune for quicker acceleration. The German tuner can also install a range of exhaust systems for those that want their BMW 435i xDrive to be more audible. It’s still no BMW M4, but then again, it doesn’t need to be in order to be exciting.
All of the upgrades featured on the BMW 435i xDrive by Best-Tuning are currently available individually. The Schmidt Revolution wheel and tire combo can be installed for 2,600 Euros while the KW coilovers start at 1,100 Euros, depending on the variant. The engine tuning can also be purchased for 1,299 Euros.
