You would think. That took the bulk of my money. My lowly e46 is probably faster on the track.

Yeah I don't planning on tracking this car a whole lot. I'm prepping my Z3M coupe as my track toy

Garage List
2011 BMW M3  [0.00]
Today is officially 1 week in with my M, and I'm just over $2k in. Still looking into wheels and exhaust... That'll push me just under the $10k mark in maybe a month :/

Noob here and new to BMW ownership. I've had my 2011 e93 M3 for a little over 6 months and really had no intention of modding it until I met the boys at ACM.. Turned out I needed new wheels cause of a vibration issue. I think my logic was well if I'm getting wheels then might as well get the suspension and if I get the suspension..... So on and so forth.. Don't think it warrants the term logic, but it's all I've got.. :/

Have ordered all the below parts this week, goes in for fitting next... I'll be over the 15K mark already, just hope the labor cost won't kill me..

Ohlins coilovers
New wheels & tires custom painted
IPE exhaust
Arkym diffuser
Oneighty headlights
Tints 50% all round
Vinyl matted roof
Bimmian keyless
Smoked grills w. led indicators

Previously:-
Revinora front splitter
Dinan pulley
Painted reflectors
Paddle shifters
Black kidney grill

This has been lost for a while. Let's see what's happening now with people returning their cars to stock and others grabbing those used parts..............Phil

I'm over $16k.

After I rebuild the bottom end of the new engine I imagine I'll be up to $20k.

Plan on aero and brake cooling and I pray to the car gods that's a wrap and keeps me under $25k

Stopped counting at $10k. And keep in mind most of my stuff I bought used!!

HRE C20 - used
Swift Spec-R springs new
Eisenmann Race - used. Had Borla S-type too at one point
ACM TP - new
BPM Tune + coding - new-ish (got tuning cable from forum member)
LCI taillights - new
OEM Perf CF spoiler - new
Arkym diffuser - used
Forcewerkz side skirt extenders - 3rd party, so they were used prices more or less
AA filter - new

Countless more on maintenance and replacement parts but I guess those don't really count. Got other mods that I bought, didn't like and had to sell for less than what I bought it for for quick sale.

$8000 set of HRE or BBS, $12000 ESS supercharger, $4000 Akra Evo. There goes half the budget right there, and double what I spent on my entire mod list.

There's different classes of modding

I spent 25 in the first 6 months on my e46 and have no bbs or akra or any other flashy mods. Bbk, coilovers, cage, subframe, headers, exhaust, seats, and such. Still easy to do.

Well he's driving an E93 ESS650 according to his info so I doubt he's turning his into a track car like yours. So I'm assuming it's one of those no budget builds.
