What will be your first M3 Mod?

Time for a poll.....

What will be your first mod (just assume that all mods are available at the same time).

I just want to see what people want to do to their wagen.

You left off exhaust. Won't know until I hear it, but BMW's stock exhaust is usually pretty conservative, and it SURE is ugly. At least I will paint the can flat black.

I heard your one of the first guys getting the new Vorsteiner mods. Congrats on that!!

Look forward to seeing it in person at Bimmerfest.

Are you getting some 19's for the car?

Have done DINAN mods with my E36 and E46 so I may wait to see what they will have. Cold Air Intake on the 46 was nice. Also did Borla Exhaust, SS Br Lines and Euro cross drilled rotors along with lightweight SSR wheels and Yokohama AVS Sport Tires 245-35 19F and 275-30 19 R. Man I hated to part with that car, but this one coming was so much better. Definitely changing wheels, have already worked out the deal with my dealer for a swap on arrival. Also SS Lines and Super Blue fluid.

Tough call, perhaps an "Other" option is needed. Tops on the list is protection. Radar/Laser detector/jammer. Already lining up clear bra/tint.
Now that I am getting the 19's, I can sit back and carefully study the influx of new mods available and plan accordingly. Exhaust/wheels might be the first "true" mod.

Just my opinion, but high color temp bulbs are super ricey. They make no sense from a performance standpoint, as the human eye is more sensitive to the red end of the spectrum. Isn't the essence of the M3 function over flash?

I'm going to fill and repaint the front valance, or just get the Euro one.

I agree with this statement. Weird, huh?

Only glare increases with higher kelvin output. Visible light output for driving decreases, thus you have a poorer field of vision at night.
