Time for a new Poll about Performance Mods

Once you got your new ///M .... What's next as far as mods are concerned?

What have you done or what's on your wish list

Are Michelin PSS really considered a mod?

Might be since he changed from stock (perhaps he sold the original set when he took possession).

well considering i had PS2 to start off with, i believe a step up in tires can be considered a mod... why you dont think so?? i mean, if i just took the PS2 off of my stock wheels and mount them on my TE's then i dont think its a mod, but buying new tires for my new wheels would be considered a mod no??

All I have done is minor cosmetic mods. For me the car has enough power already and all you have to do is let the baby rev and you should never get bored of her.

But my two wishlist item would be a CSL Vorsteiner boot lid for the sedan, and a rear section Gintani race exhaust then I will be done. And maybe some HID angel eyes. Andddd......

FML, I still got work to do.

I don't think the poll categories are accurate. Things like a spoiler, or any cosmetic mod short of a full widebody conversion are minor. Medium is like wheels or exhaust. Big mods IMO, are BBK, suspension, supercharger

do a lot of medium mods and hard work add up to major mods? i have no BBK of coilovers but a laundry list of other track oriented, perfomance minded and visual mods installed, including a DIY install of apex GT4 3 inch brake ducts.

I've done a lot, almost everything but BBK and supercharger (coming soon). My favorite mods thus far have been, in this order; sparco dtm seats, suspension, wheels with 295 ad08 rear, ehaust. On my wish list are a nice set of HREs after the sc/bbk.

Once I get my M back, I think I'll put a flux capacitor in it.

Biggest mod I did was wrap my car in vinyl. So I went from a subtle AW to a hawt Fire Orange. I created a thread on the wrap a while ago. I've had the wrap for a few months and i still love it. My next big mod would be an ESS 625 supercharge pack

Stuff in my sig. Getting the reflectors holes filled/shaved Monday. Just pulled the yellowing Venture Shield, wax & polish & put on the stock 220's....it's like I rekindled a love affair.

Moxie, looking at all your mods, I bet when you add up all the Euros that you could have picked up a little Benz Smart Car for the every day run about

Then I know you are much happier in your ///M during the every day run about trips

I too like my 220 wheels best they remind me of my first M3 the e46 ... I might change the wheels if someone comes up with a nice turbine blade wheel design for the M3 otherwise my 220 wheels will be it for ever.

I'm in the same boat. Going from arc 8s to stock 220s with winter rubber for the upcoming season and looking forward to losing my black wheels. I also replaced my CF mirror caps with ind m6 caps for winter, they look classy with the 220s.
