Welcome and enjoy all the resources the forum has to offer! Makes it that much harder to leave your car in stock form unfortunately!

I'd say go cosmetic with $1k.

My personal suggestions (and what I did as well) was:

-Matte black grills ~$90
-Matte black side marker housings ~$70
-Wheel spacers ~$150
-Clear/painted/smoked front bumper cover reflectors ~$70 (I did smoked...)

That leaves a lot of funds left over. You can't do an nice clear bra, exhaust or wheels with the remaining money. I'd splurge and get a good clear bra though, definitely worth it.

Cheers, have a great new year.

Are you happy with the smoked or do you wish you got painted?

I'd use the extra funds for H&R springs.

Welcome, new member myself. Congrads on the new toy.
I'm around the Mission Valley. Paddy got an JB E90 M3 6spd. He's from SD too. So, now we got a MR, JB, and SG E90 M3 rolling around SD. Nice.... Hope we can meet up sometime.

Hey Don Congrats!

Be on the look out for a Jerez Black M3. I haven't been able to stop driving it since I got it, so I'm all over San Diego.

I'm living off 5/Balboa.

Check out the SLO nocal-socal meet in the regional forums. March 28th.

Hey Don,
was that you coming down Carmel Mtn Road about 1PM today, and turned onto 5/805 on ramp heading South?

If so "Nice Car", I passed you by heading down the hill.

I was over in Rancho Bernado for lunch, took 56 East but came back the back roads by 4S ranch. Was able to gun it a little as the roads were empty.
