My modding started with painted reflectors.

Soon after came challenge xpipe, Swaybars, kw s/o kit, SS lines, ssk, evolve tune, diff and subframe bushings and finally pulleys. Looking at CIC retrofit now...it never ends!!!!!!

All I've done so far is M Performance Grilles. Which I feel the car should've come with. I wrestle with the exhaust every single day of my life.

Probably the most fun thread I've ever read!

That's exactly how it goes. Your M3 is now officially perfect in every sense

Honestly, from a car show winner, someone who has had their cars in magazines and at the track I have to say that the M3 in OEM trim looks really bad, regardless. It needs at a minimum the following:

IND front reflectors
Front lip
wheels
suspension (kill that gap)
LCI taillights
Tint

Thats it and it really transforms the car. In stock trim its just plain jane for my taste.

I've had my car completely bone stock since I got it last June. I don't even have tint or anything. I've always modded all my cars in the past, but I was so impressed with the M, I decided it was stupid to bust out a bunch of mods on a car that was designed by brilliant engineers at BMW Mortorsport.

1 year later... I am constantly checking forums and pricing out the same first mods you did! I have almost pulled the trigger on gills, grilles, and angel eyes about ten times. I've also been considering front lip and perf spoiler.

I am slowly catching the bug again. I am trying to hold out, but this forum isn't helping!

Don't be surprised if you see me removing the "bone stock" from my sig...

Great post. Appreciate the sentiment exactly - although I am still resisting.

(Other than Remus back boxes, edition grills and gills!)
