Exclamation PLEASE HELP ! new m3 owner

Hi there everyone

I am new to the german motor world, I have been driving japanese and american cars all my life. i recently sold my Challenger srt (650 hp) for an M3. i honestly do miss my challenger but im really happy with the M3. i would really like to start modifying my car and i would really appreciate if you guys could tell me what to do and what not to do, what modifications have you done and any good sites where i could buy accessories for my car (performance).

Thank you in advance
Greetings from Dubai.

All depends what you now have on your car ... then I recommend you make a search here ... once you do you will find tons of recommendations on mods. I understand in Dubai you have this fantastic BMW dealership, I am sure there is a "Performance Manager" in that dealership if I was you I have a coffee with him/her and discuss your needs on the subject of performance mods. Then there are the fellows with tons of money in Dubai that meet at the track, bet they can help as well. Good Luck and enjoy your car.

Here is an example search ===>Click Here to Open

Here is another ===> Click to Open

I like to keep my cars stock ... it's a German thing we purchase a car that meets our needs.

Welcome. Search and you will find 1000s of threads about mods. I would start with the exhaust though. The OEM exhaust is too quiet.

Yes. There are tons of kits on the market and certain brands like VF and ESS have never had an engine blow with one of their kits, so they would be the safest bet.

We actually have a completely stock E93 M3 being superchargered with a 620 kit at our BMW dealer with no other mods at all.

It would of course be recommended you get a catless x pipe with the supercharger as well. Then brakes / suspension later on.
