I have a 11.5 e92 and if I could have changed anything prob would have put zcp but I am not even hundred percent sure I would have cause I love the 220 wheels and I am sure if I had gotten zcp I would have said the total opposite. Like they say the grass is always greener on the other side

now that I've owned this thing for half a year, I would get rid of comfort access and the PDC, and add contrast stitching to the interior, and do ED.

but considering that I had something nearly perfect to what i was loking for, and I only had to wait a couple of hours, instead of months, to get my greedy hands on an M3, I have no regrets.

My point was that you could do something like this through individual but it is big $$$$. Bigger than what it costs on the Porsche, but damn it looks good. Wish I had done contrast stitching

Totally understand - what color is your interior?

My wife's Audi A4 S-line comes with contrast stitching and Alcantara/Leather seats and it looks so nice.
At the time I couldn't afford it really, but now I would go with BMW individual - maybe a custom color and interior with extended leather. I would also see if they would do a leather top dash.

Someone also had a custom SSK made by BMW individual - this would be a great thing to investigate as well.

Nothing. Thats why I ordered this one after owning another e92 M3.
Could consider LSB though...

The only thing I go back and forth on is changing from E90 to E92. I like the 4 doors but I like the look of the E92 more. And if I did get an E92 then I definitely get the carbon roof.

I'm very happy with mine...except, I really like the Amarone interior and I got Fox Red on my Jerez Black. If I could have gone back, I would have done the Amarone.
