PIMP my M3

Just got an Interlagos M3 Coupe via ED. Arrives next week I hope. Wanted some suggestions on mods that I can do that won't affect lease or fairly easy to return to normal upon return. Any suggestions welcome and pics. Not too familiar with the M3 mods available since I'm new. So far on my list are Lux bulbs, black grills (which one), painted reflectors, aftermarket gunmetal competition wheels?

Car looks great.
Besides, colored reflector I'd vote for a track day!!! And if you like sound, a cat back exhaust. Besides that, just enjoy it.

What can I get away with with the lease? I have to return it to stock right in 3 years.

Pretty much any mod. You can switch back to stock exhaust, stock wheels, stock whatever.

My #1 mod for sure is a catback exhaust. The stock exhaust does not do the marvelous V8 justice at all, it sounds wimpy. My AA exhaust is by far my favorite mod.

EDIT: Oh, also you can sell the used aftermarket parts after the lease is up to people on this board and recover a lot of the cash expended. If you need extra justification to buy parts

I'm gonna wait on performance mods. Most exterior for now. Looks like from reading board I should get Black chrome edition grills and maybe side grills? I have also seen body color side gills. Should i get this vs black chrome.

MAN! What an ugly place to take a picture....jk, sweet picture!!!! Where is that by the way.

I think the mods you mentioned would all hit the spot, and the exhaust when your wallet permits.

French Riviera

This was a few weeks ago during European Delivery along the French Riviera just south of Monaco before Nice. Along the Basse Corniche Road which they say is one of most beautiful in world. The views were amazing and water so blue.

Very Nice pictures....

To answer your question, here is a list of stuff that I got while waiting from my car to get redelivered

-OEM M Edition (Black Chrome) Grills and Gills
-New Reflectors (I would get smoked ones if I were you, I hate the painted ones)
-CF Hood Vents
-LUX Angel Eyes V3

Once the car got here, it went through an extensive wheels off 2 day full detail (by me)
-Clear Bra
-Rear Fog Light Activation
-Seat Belt Arm Disabled

Later on I got:

-Euro Spec Tails (Amber Turn Signals)
-Performance Steering Wheel.....

That is it for now..... I only do cosmetic mods and not into engine, wheel, suspension related mods at all....

Love the pic by the yachts and scooters. Order the lux angels from lux! Why not painted reflectors from IND? They are perfect, and get to you with amazing speed.

Very nice pictures. I would consider, color matched painted reflectors, gloss black grille and side gills by IND and a set of GTS 19's (black) or ZCP wheels painted black. Gunmetal if that is your preference but I REALLY like IB with black accenting..... congrats!
