AW E92 M3 DCT - Mods Thus Far!

As most of you know i sold my manual AW E92 M3 and replaced it with a DCT AW E92 M3!! Car is a 58 plate with the new 2009 iDrive and has every option bar rear blinds and TV. Like my last AW E92 M3 it DOES have EEEEE.DDDDDD.CCCCC!!! Have a few grumbles with the DCT but dont want to bore you with those now, overall very pleased with the car. Personally i love the new 2009 iDrive, massive improvement and love the new screen etc. Also love the keyless go function - but must get out of habit of checking the door handle once ive locked it as it then re-opens the car again... doh!! Find the auto hazard light function annoying when you slam the breaks on - i see the reason behind it but hope it doesnt start flashing after every hard corner on the Nurburgring in Aug - could be embarrassing!!!
So, mods so far to date include;
Remus Race exhaust
BMC Filter
Evolve Remap (440bhp)
Eibach Pro Kit
Eibach Hubcentric Spacers (15mm rear/12mm front)
Gloss Black OEM 19" Rims
Gloss Black Kidneys
Gloss Black Mirror Covers
Gloss Black Side Grills & Tinted Lenses
Gloss Black Boot Lip Spoiler
Gloss Black Hood Vents
Gloss Black M3 Badge
CF Bonnet/Boot Badge
CF Wheel Caps
CF Steering Wheel Badge

Already ordered a Vorsteiner rep front lip spoiler and VRS II rear diffuser - which i will colour code Gloss Black when they arrive. IF i then decide to keep this one a little longer then im considering AA power pulleys and an AA X-pipe as my next mods. Steve

Looks great Steve.

are those the same wheels from your old motor - they look much better in that picture.

Mods

Nice mods.... I am thinking about using Evlove myself for some mods. How was their work???
Good purchase on the VRS front and rear diffuser, I have them myself... makes the car look so much better.
By the way... do you mind me asking where you got your mirror covers??

For the gloss black framed grilles you are best off buying the BMW performance ones - They look like this......

The Black grills came standard on mine, it's only a few days old though.

They are as far as the UK ones go from what I have seen, front Kidneys have chrome round the edges though.
