Well, modest brake setups would fall victim to this but not the case in Rotora’s creation, this 335i. Owned by Lee Takagi, the General Manager of Rotora USA who described the twin turbo E92 as enticing, this 335 would be the donor for new product development. Takagi was new to the Euro scene and wanted Rotora to develop something for the car that would really raise some pulses.

The braking setup is a glimpse into the future of where Rotora is headed. They have been developing a ceramic composite rotor that will have all of the qualities of the elite manufacturers except for the price tag. The rotors are sized in 355x32mm all the way around and feature a T6061-T6 aluminum hat with high-grade fasteners

The Extreme Dimensions Couture Executive line was shot with some BMW Alpine White and fitted up to the car. The durable FRP kit consists of front bumper, rear bumper and sideskirts. The carbon fiber trunk is an OEM style, the vented hood, rear roof spoiler and rear wing are also ED products from their Carbon Creations line. The end result is an E92 that stands out from the crowd and the kit is reportedly selling well for ED as of late.

A mild bump in horsepower is serving the car well. Currently with an Agency Power Titanium-tipped exhaust and piggyback ECU along with an Active Autowerke blow-off valve, Takagi has some serious plans for the 335
