i can see asking for advice on one thing, but how can you feel good about your purchase if you ask a bunch of total strangers how to configure your $75k car? are you sure you even want an M3??

that being said, here are my comments about each of your questions:

1. space gray is the best color imo. shows off the lines and the CF roof really well.

2. remus is a good exhaust, but i've decided on the eisenmann race.

3. tinted @35%.

4. stock wheels (for now).

-Vert is a good choice if it's a "fun" car.
-My favorite color is Alpine White.
-Eisenmann is the way to go.
-Not a fan of tinted windows.
-20" wheels and a drop really set it off.

FYI, Remus is a lot cheaper than Eisenmann. Like by half.

I'd go with Silverstone or Alpine White, they are my two favorites.

Remus makes a great system but I prefer the sound of Eisenmann or Vorsteiner. You also get the weight savings from Vorsteiner's titanium design.

Definitely do the tinted windows, I think that's a must!

Black 20's will set any M3 off, that's a must as well.

I know that it's subjective and all but I really liked the way their Sport version sounded that's why I went with the Race.

@ Moog
I have an idea on the car, but I just wanted to hear your opinions about it. some of you just look like hater
I think I'll go for a convertible ,colour: Sylverstone II, with tinted windows.
And keep de exhaust and rims to start with ( if i change, it will be eisenmann and black 19" BBS)

Thanks for the messages, keep giving ideas

3 body styles.
8 color choices.
2 wheel types.

You only have a total of 48 unique configurations stock. I wonder what you are really expecting from this thread? A consensus of the 'best' color choice?

Remember that this is a gathering of pure enthusiasts. You'll never run into as many M3's in real life as you have seen here. So, really the ONLY factor important is what you want and what you like. There may be alot of AW, JerezB, and Space Greys on this site, but if you ask most poeple they've only ever seen another M3 live on the road a handful of times. I personally have only seen an M3 on the road once. For a brief 2 seconds as it passed me on the other side of the road.

Just pick what you like, you have the money for it so we all know you are a decisive person.

PS. Tinted windows is a must. As for exhaust, I'd live with the stock for alittle while before you upgrade. Keeps things interesting if you ever get bored with the car. Say 2-3 years down the line you find the exhaust note a bit monotonous. Well that is the time to upgrade and completely refresh your love for the car. But that's just my own plan, and I plan on keeping the car for a while.

Well, thanks for the plan.
I just looked into the brochure,did some research , it will an interlagos blue one, with grey leather seats and the 19" rims ,lol. I keep everything standard at the beginning . Even the windows ill wait a couple of months.
Thanks for the replies
And I wasnt going to make my decision on your ideas, i just wanted to hear your thoughts
