Pulleys and headers have shown good results in E60 M5. The evosport pulley in M5 is a heck of a bargain. So, hopefully there is potential for some major gains in the M3 as well.

Sounds really expensive, but so far so good. Good Luck with that.

Personally, I don't know if they will be coming out with a e92 M3 exhaust any time soon but I'll be waiting for the Titanium exhaust kit from GruppeM.

Their titanium exhaust for the e46 M3 was simply amazing imo. Although, it was mighty pricey. Which means its perfect for the new e92 M3.

What about a limited slip differential? An upgrade to 4.1 would be nice increase in torque. As they say this might be the most bang for the buck. I really felt the difference in the E60 M5 changing from 3.62 to 3.91

Are you selling this stuff? IMO modding is for regular cars to make them come closer to an M. Modding an M car is just plain stupid.

Flames?

I'd say at least $20k in mods, and a used 997 turbo could probably be found for about $90k+, so such a comment does hold water.

No! My BMW rep's roommate works at a So.Cal Porsche dealership, and recently sold a used 997 turbo for under $100k. Maybe such a sale price wasn't the norm, or maybe the Porsche didn't have alot of options. Who knows? ....but it happened.

Edit: A quick scan of AutoTrader.com netted me about 5 examples of 2007 Porsche Turbos in the $110-113k range (..with the one selling for $113k being optioned out w/ NAV, upgraded wheels, etc.), so maybe the guy who purchased the used Turbo was good at negotiating. One can only speculate.

Case in point, I'm drug free buddy! You're willing to smoke whatever you desire though.

You mean like the Turbos? I'm sorry I could not resist. I find it impossible to believe 997 Turbo went for 90K in So Cal. It makes no sense. I'm not calling you a liar - I just think you've been given bad info. The C4S is still knocking on 90 in the 07 resale market.

It was between $90-100k (..before taxes, etc.) for sure. This came directly from the guy who sold the car. Again, I'm not privy to the particulars, but the car sold for under 100k. It's not hard to believe considering there are many examples selling in the low 100's w/ upgraded options. I'm sure the $90-100k realm is more the exception rather than the norm.
