Did you install paddles?

If so... how complicated?

LOL, I started with the reflectors from IND too...and I'm going downhill fast.

Your car looks sweet....AW with the carbon roof always hits the spot big time. Eye catching...

ANOTHER PROBLEM: I have to read M3 post at least a few times per hour at all hours of the day (yes, at work, at the store, eating out, lunch break, etc.). I can't stop help!

Funny post.

I must be one of the very few that did coilovers/brakes/wheels but left the looks untouched. Stock grills, gills and all that orange stuff

Got them from Sonic MS and install was pretty straight forward (and I'm the world's worst DIY). Hardest part was removing the airbag, rest was simple.

Haha I started off with IND reflectors as well. Then got grilles and air filter. Then MS spacers.

Now I just got a set of KW V3.

And I'm researching M3 GTS rims.

Wife is going to be pissed.

OP - just ran across this thread. Pretty funny and I'm pretty much the same way. It's all or nothing for me. Once you start, it seems too hard to stop so I'm choosing to stay bone stock... for now.

M Performance piano/gloss black grilles is how it started for me. Hopefully my Eisenmann Race is where it ends. We ALL know that's wishful thinking. I have 1 son in college and 1 going next year...this has gotta stop. Lol.
