performance package choices?

Ok Gents,

So my mods so far are as follows:

BBS CH_R's
Tune
pulleys
Xpipe
Filter
Exhaust

So i've pretty much exhausted "bolt on" N/A mods.

So I have the following two "packages" to choose from.

S/C ESS 575 10kish
or
Dinan rear end and BBK or similar brake package upgrade. 6kish

I don't see myself spending anymore on performance upgrades after either or.

2011 M3 E92 6-spd comp package. non NANNY tranny

Thanks for your thoughts!

Tough call. I love BBK's, but I'd have to say the supercharger if given the choice.

It's just a matter of time until you do it all....I'd start with the BBK & Rear diff. If you really think you'll only do one, you get more bang for your buck with the SC.

I'd be more inclined to go with the BBK, but then again may depend on if you need that kind of stopping power. Never really felt that the S65 needed more power but then again when is enough enough !

Thanks Gents,

I'd like to track it someday. I read a few reviews that the S/C abd rear diff don't mix well as the S/c adds so much power amking the rear diff less needed?
