Mother of god, thats.... impressive. If the responses to this poll are genuine, there's definitely people to get some group purchases on some of the expensive pieces. Could save some money... and possibly some mariages if this thread is any indication.

Not an M3 owner here, but I'm at over 30k Euros. Would be more or the less the same if the initial car was an M3

I would say between 8-12k is average. Then 15-20k with a supercharger.

It's better not to start at all. Mods for m3 are very expensive due to the fact it's high quality for track purpose. I remember modding my Honda. It was Pennies in comparison

That's the problem.....how do you not start? One would think that changing out the reflectors wouldn't suck you in.........and I'm the one that thought that. Now granted a lot of my Dinan stuff was completed prior to delivery. I think the only cure for the mod bug is to keep your ass off this forum ..........Phil

Wonder how many times ESS has been sued for this? They should give us all "dummy" invoices to leave "hidden" for when the ladies decide to snoop around and find it. The real ESS invoice should be left in the storage area of the trunk where the spare tire should be if we had one.
