Hello everyone, my first thread!

I'm totally new to this world and must say its exciting and amazing to finally be apart of it.

I just recently purchased a 2013 E92 M3 out of Orange County thanks to Yi-Wen and the rest of the Shelly BMW Dealership and can't wait to make my first mods.

I just wanted to say hello to everyone here and say thanks for everyone's useful opinions and knowledge. Your stories, pictures, and advice are greatly appreciated. As for my first mod, any suggestions?

Replace side reflector with painted matching color of your car. If you don't like the chrome on your kidney grill you can change that out with gloss black or matching color. You can also go with CF rear spoiler. Congrats on your new purchase and welcome to the site.

Thank you. I saw a simple roundel sticker on my neighbor's emblem and thought it'd be a nice contrast over the blue. However, I'm debating whether or not to just replace it with a new carbon fiber one so no one could peel it off. Are they hard to take off? I'd hate to brake the car the same week I just got it haha

Welcome and congrats!

As said already replace front orange reflector with paint matching delete. Other considerations include clear-bra and window tint.

Post some pics of your new ride.

Welcome. I am in your area, maybe we will run in to each other. I as well just just a 13 E92 AW. Was going to get from Derek at Shelly but didn't have my color combo.

I found a great place near us to do your early mods. EAS in Anaheim (La Palma & Van Buren)

Also there is a Cars and Coffee every Saturday morning in Irvine in the Maza corporate office parking lot. Starts at 6am. Lots of different cars show up there.

Enjoy your ride and see you around.

I ordered it an interlagos blue. I had always intended on getting a red one then modding it with black accents, but as soon as they showed me pictures of the blue, I fell in love =)

And so my newest project starts, it's already at the shop for tint and I picked up the black matte grilles. I hope the chrome ones aren't too hard to take out. I'll post pictures as soon as I get it back! Thank you guys for the warm welcome
