Talking Yo! About to be a new owner...

Hey fellas, I am looking at getting an e92 M3 Coupe in the next month or so after I get back from Europe and would like to first introduce myself and ask for any advice on options etc. I am pretty set on an e92 M3 coupe 6 speed but the 2 color combos Im debating against is AW ext. Full black Int. extended OR Gray Metallic ext. with fox red int. extended. Also, I am debating on keeping the carbon roof or getting a sunroof (I really like sun roofs ). As far as packages...I just want the upgraded wheels that everyone else has cause the factory wheels are ugly and the technology package. I really am interested in the M drive and EDC. I came from a world of modifying cars and I am just done with all that. I want this car as a car that comes with the whole package that I can drive to school, work etc with no problems and of course the ADRENALINE RUSH! I'm coming from a highly modified 600hp Lancer Evolution. It was a fun car, definitely fun on the road course with the right suspension and tires. And of course gobs of fun in the straights but as a daily driver it is horrible and unreliable (even in stock form). It was just too much money and it is a never ending money pit haha. I'm excited about getting an M3 my dark side knows of a few mods I want to do but don't know if I should. What do you guys think.

Vorsteiner Trunk
Some kind of exhaust that fits perfect
Maybe some wheels down the line
Intake maybe?? haha

I don't see these mods posing a problem but I don't know please enlighten me on all the info you guys got and I will be searching the forums for more info all I know is AW + Vorsteiner trunk = HOT!! haha PEACE

James

Metallic Grey? You want either Space Grey or Sparkling Graphite.... Both are metallic greys. Space greay is a little lighter. Sparkling Graphit is dark and can show some blue and purple in certain lighting.

You cant go wrong with the mods you listed.

Oh my bad, I meant the darker gray, so the sparkling gray. SORRY :
I am not a fan of silver that's why the darker the gray the better especially with a contrasting red interior. Still thinking....

both sparkling graphite and space grey look good with fox red, but i think that space grey wins. check the picture threads.

are you shiekh yerbootie? hahha

IMHO to me personally SG and SG (both) are extremely boring, i'd opt for sparkling eggplant except for that extremely homosexual purple shine

both SG's look great with FR interior.

are you shiek yerbootie?? jk

SG (gray) is very boring IMHO. subtle but boring for a car like this.
SG (eggplant) is nice but has the most homosexualist purple shine i've seen on a car i'd opt for gray over that for sure

both look good in SG

i'd still get SSII JB or IB over those any day
congrats in advance, shiekh

AW M3 with NB Leather interior

I completely disagree! It's perfect the way it is. Changing curves of the car is basically telling BMW "ur design is not good enough." ...but hey, if you like it, then rock it! Good luck w ur mods!
