What should I do?! Lol
I have $$$ burning my pockets right now.
Here's what you need to consider:

1. Exhaust and tune will give a little more power if you go full catless and get the proper tune to go with it. However, your car will fail emissions readiness testing if this is an issue. You will gain some power, a nice sound, but nothing earth shattering

2. A nice set of light custom wheels like from HRE with wider tires will give you much needed grip. The M3 is definitely undertired from the factory.

So contrary to many here, I would go with a nice set of light, forged custom built wheels and wider rubber. I think it will make more of a difference in the drive of the car.
And this is why I posted this thread.. To hear all diff opinions.

You made a good point. Thanks for your reply.
