3k-ish

Including the sale of stock parts. When I can sell my dinan e90 muffler, I'll be under 2k all in. Not bad considering lol. I spent a lot more on my e46

One reason I havent modded this car more is bc I'm looking for a more torquey and balanced engine in my next car. And also a car with a better clutch feel.

Cool...here's a tip...

The one thing I look at is a pattern of FS threads in the classified. Most of the times, people won't openly bash vendors but instead quietly sell. Me included.

Yeah, you can get it cheap used but you'll end up with the same issues as the original owner. Then you'll end up going back to OEM (if you can) or buying something better and spending even more money to do whatever twice.

Based on the data so far this car commands one to dig deep for mods. The thread has about a 10% vote participation. I need more votes.....C'mon gearheads. If you are going to look at the thread cast your vote. Everyone falls into one of the categories........Phil

Lack of respondents is probably because more than 29.87% total M3 owners spend in the (current) response section of "don't ask".
