Only advice here is to go for the full Akra Evo, not just the slip on. The guys over at EAS have told me story after story of people who regret buying the slip on, and soon-after upgrade to the full EVO. It's clearly more expensive, but if you shop around in the For Sale section of the forums, you might be able to find a good deal.

Otherwise, congrats on the car, and good luck with the mods !

Looks good, but don't bother getting the OEM Black/Chrome exhaust tips if you're going to change the exhaust after a month or so.

agreed to others.... buying a slip on you will regret... i end up buying an xpipe cause the slip on was just not enough... and if your thinking of tuning your car you better off getting a full no cat exhaust mod otherwise, you wont see much of a gain on your mods you listed.

agreed on the tips ........I just think they would look SO cool. I'll eventually spring for the EVO system, I just like to have HP mods come on little by little - this way I can properly gauge my satisfaction

Drove into work today and its raining like crazy. Back where I'm from it rains torrentially for about 4 months of the year (Philippines). I miss it and was just thinking to myself....this would feel SO MUCH better in an M3 HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Keep all the OEM parts for when you sell the car -- your car will probably be worth LESS with the mods when it comes time to sell
