Too soon to mod??

hello,

my name is rommel and i am the proud owner of a new m3. since joining this forum, i have been inundated with ideas to mod my car's engine as well as aesthetics. right now my mileage is around 570some and i was wondering if it was too soon to change the intake filter and add some scoops?? your thoughts/opinions are welcome and appreciated.

Never too soon to mod, in my opinion:

I'd ask, how long do you plan on owning the car? If you plan on keeping it for a bit, I'd be more patient with the mods. Get to know the car stock alittle then slowly build it up.

You'll definately appreciate it more in the end I think, instead of just getting bored or sick of it in 2 years.

(If your planning on dumping it in a few years though, by all means go ahead.)

Second that, drive the car for a few more miles and decide what you do and don't like about the car.
