388 days

That's how long i've had my m3 for.

I promised my wife that I wouldn't mod the car. That was part of the bargain I made with her when she let me trade in a 1-yr old car for the m3 (as a side note, when I initially bought that original car, I told my wife that it was my dream car and that I was going to drive it into the ground.. but I digress).

The first 365 days were fine. I was just so thrilled to own an M that I didn't think about wheels, suspension, carbon fibre goodies or exhausts.

The last 23 days. Well they have been pure hell. All I can think about is modding the M... it's a sickness. I feel like if I don't mod it, I won't be able to move on...

Anyway, just wantd to share. Sort of like opening up at an AA meeting.

I wish I could tell you the answer on how to deal with the modding disease, but I am well beyond being cured from it. I can tell you about an AA meeting though...they are located in Miami but have a local dealer in Mississauga...Bimmersport Automotive. They have seen a lot of my money!

But I am grinning ear to ear every time I get in my car or go to the track.

Good luck!

I had that need. Then I took it to a track day. I realized I have a LONG way to go before I need to mod this car (for performance at least). Short shift kit maybe.

Don't mod it. It's perfectly acceptable in stock form.

Theres a cure for modding fever as I have been thru my whole life up untill this point.
Buy a brand new car for 37k break it in then put about 17k into it, have serious problems and ecu wont accept tunes properly then winter comes and car sits in garage for 7 months as a huge nightmare you just want gone then spring comes so you can finally ship it to a tuner 2500 miles away.

Moral of story $ is only $. If you want the whole package you have to spend at least 75k


Once I get my M its only getting a tune and exhaust and bbk. Done with engine internals, dual fuel systems, huge turbos, 8000ft of piping and 10mpg on a good day.

Easy. Either delete you forum account and block M3post.com on your browser.
Or just start modding like the rest of us!

Hahahaha. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, a small inexpensive Akra slip, and down the slippery slope you go!!! Just do it!

OP, I hv the tendancy to trade in cars early as well. Made the same promise to my wife on the last car we had. Told her it was my dream car and I'll be driving it for at least 10yrs. 1.5 yrs later I traded it in for the M. I keep my cars on average for about 2yrs. I hv wondering eyes I tell ya. Have a feeling I'll be keeping the M for much longer then that.

you and i are identical! hahahahahahahah. my wife doesn't even listen to me anymore when i give her the "i've dreamt of this car since i was in kindergarten and i'm going to keep it forever" speech...." she just rolls her eyes.

I think this time is different though. i too believe that i will be keeping the M much longer!!!... at least i hope... (i can't help it.. i just love cars so much.. it is hard to be monogamous.)

But you are more likely to miss the car.
