Bingo, matte black front grill really cleans up the front end. I am also partial to the Vorsteiner parts for the front bumper:

Well I think
Black kidney
Black side markers (when they get out)
Probably a new exhaust , I prefer Remus
And the BMW performance pedals
Greeting ( IMO : no need for new light bulbs )
ANd if you dont mod, the m3 is near perfection by itself

Nate....always a salesman! lol

J/K Them parts are NICE...Iam sort of waiting for the E90 fitments...

First things I did were:

Matte Black Kidneys
GP Thunders
Painted Reflectors
Hardwire my V1 (not really cosmetic)
Ashtray delete/storage compartment install (interior cosmetic I guess )

Soon:
Vort. CF front and rear
Exhaust
Wheels? Dunno if I can get away with that one yet!
Maybe CF roundels, not sure yet.
BMW Perf. steering wheel
Speaker/amp upgrade
Clear bra
Tint?

Tim I here if you ever need anything

I'm excited to see what Vorsteiner has coming out for the E90 M3. I also really like dronell3's E90 M3 with the 3D lip.

My first cosmetic mods were the most important: clear bra and tint. The rest like the Vorsteiner bootlid and diffuser came later.
