studntloan mr e90 zcp build

a few months ago, shortly after supercharging my 08 e92 i decided it was time to buy a new car, i had originally always wanted an e90 but couldnt pass down the deal i got on my e92 at the time,
i talked to ryan over at paul miller bmw in nj who has been there for every call and everything question ive had, it took about a month to come to a final decision on options and colors but i got it down and sent out the order
the conclusion was a e90 melbourne red m3 zcp with black/ fox red interior, fully optioned except for a sunroof and no dct.
ill keep this updated with all my mods, so its all in one place

mods so far-

Cosmetics-
ind painted reflectors
Ind gloss black grills
Ind gloss black gills
Challenge gt gloss black lip (clear bra)
challenge race diffuser

Suspension-
Rd springs
Rd sway
Dinan bump stops

Engine-
Akrapovic slip on with carbon tips (31lbs weight loss)
ae xpipe with hjs hfc
Afe stage 2 intake
Rpi red scoops

Wheels (around 30 lbs weight loss)
volk te37
18x9.5f
18x10.5r

weight loss- estimated numbers
61lbs

i have 6MT right now and all i can think about is how fast DCT shifts. Don't get me wrong... i'm happy with my car but i think i may be missing out on DCT.

while dct is faster, i like 6mt, if i was going to get a auto car id get a gtr over the m3, dct is fun to drive and is surely faster but i feel i would get bored of it.. atleast in the m3,
