I'm fairly certain I'm done with that. After over $100k spent in mods alone on assorted cars, big ticket mods aren't in my future any more. The reason is simple. You get absolutely no money back on them. In fact, it can make your car that much harder to sell even compared to stock. I think I have decided that if I feel the need to mod a car to that degree, then I should just switch to a different car. This could be different if I find a "forever" car, but as nice as the M3 is, it is not quite that car for me.
