That's exactly how it goes. Your M3 is now officially perfect in every sense

1 year later... I am constantly checking forums and pricing out the same first mods you did! I have almost pulled the trigger on gills, grilles, and angel eyes about ten times. I've also been considering front lip and perf spoiler.

I am slowly catching the bug again. I am trying to hold out, but this forum isn't helping!

Don't be surprised if you see me removing the "bone stock" from my sig...
Haha yea, this forum is 100% the culprit.

Little random but def an interesting place. Pics were actually taken during a mini-meet for some local M drivers.

Regarding mods though. I knew more about the Akra evolution exhaust than is strictly healthy, through endless research online, before I'd even got my M3. Now that I've got one, my warranty doesn't run out till June 2016. That exhaust might not even be in production by then! Maybe I should get the BMW performance exhaust?

That's right, the wallet will be more than $8,000 lighter at some point. Hopefully before 2016.

Thanks!

Someone needs to come up with a 12-step plan to cure the bug.

Don't feel too bad, I had my black grills and gills a month before my M3 got here and only drove it twice with the chrome parts... Anyone need some lightly used chrome grills and gills? =)

I'm very glad to hear you are happy with how the car came together! At some point you can let me know and I will "cut you off". I think we may need to develop a 12 step modding recovery program.
