In the distant land of Bergen, Norway lies a truly unique offshore well operator who’s spends so much time on the sea that keeping his 2008 BMW 335i grounded at all times was his number one objective.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-003Having been a hardcore coilover user for years, Frode needed to step up his game rather quickly to make sure his E92 would stand apart from the rest. He needed to make a big impression when driving up to Scandinavian car meets.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-014Hearing tales from America that a new bolt-on solution was being produced from Bag Riders, Frode sent out emails to Taylor to get a set on his side of the Atlantic Ocean.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-002Using a modified Air Lift front strut housing with adjustable end links and Slayer rear bags with Koni adjustable shocks, the Bag Riders solution proved to be a winning one in no time at all.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-001Looking to keep his setup as carefree as possible, Frode installed an AccuAir E-Level management setup with a custom fabricated set of rocker switches on the center console. bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-005Out back lies a single 5-gallon fully polished AccuAir air tank suspended in mid-air via an eXo Mount bracket setup. A single Air Zenith OB2 compressor fills the tank via 1/4″ lines so quickly that Frode barely has enough time to play with his AccuAir I-Level iPhone application.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-012With a new suspension setup came a new feeling of confidence for Frode. He was finally able to build the set of wheels that he had always dreamed of without worrying about destroying his fenders.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-013Tearing apart a set of OZ Futura wheels is no quick task, however upon finding a set that was in his correct bolt pattern, he knew he had to act quickly and scoop them up.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-009Rebuilt to 18×9.5″ up front and 18×11″ in the rear, these Futuras added a modern, yet classic approach to grabbing attention.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-008Moving forward is never an easy task, thankfully for Frode, his alliance with Bag Riders, Air Lift, and AccuAir proved to be the speediest way to completing his build.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-004Big thanks go out to Taylor at Bag Riders for answering all the questions Frode had, as well as to his friends at OijOij-Society for the positive support.bmw-e92-335i-air-lift-airlift-accuair-suspension-bagged-oz-futura-stance-airsociety-011
