I don't think I'll drop it. Roads here are horrible, which is why i still have 18's
If i do ever drop it would be the equivalent of a ZCP drop.

Here are future mods I will be doing. Let me know what you think:
- paint/powdercoat rims. satin, matt, or gloss?
- replacing matt black hood vents and side vents with gloss black
- getting euro bumper and tow hook license plate holder
- BIG DILEMMA: mode carbon variant 1 lip or keep Splitters?
I love my splitters but the fit is terrible, had them, mounted . several times but there's always a slight gap
- extended fox red leather component with cupholder delete
- extended paddle shifters
- euro sunvisors ( no sticker )
- lightmodz custom headlights
- euro tailights
- alcantara headliner?

As you can see, a lot to be done! all this needs to be done before I send it back home once i finish college in little over a year.

- BIG DILEMMA: mode carbon variant 1 lip or keep Splitters? Keep splitters, but if you can do the lip, go for it.
I love my splitters but the fit is terrible, had them, mounted several times but there's always a slight gap
- extended fox red leather component with cupholder delete Definitely
- extended paddle shifters Not my taste. Get the performance wheel instead
- euro sunvisors ( no sticker ) I don't really look up there so I think unnecessary
- lightmodz custom headlights LUX angel eyes?
- euro tailights Why not
- alcantara headliner? Oh yeah

As you can see, a lot to be done! all this needs to be done before I send it back home once i finish college in little over a year.
Look above. No engine mods?

hahahaha, thanks fro the advice. The reason for the euro tailights is that the cars back home are euro spec, so I need orange turn signal. This is also one of the reasons why I'm doing lightmodz custom headlight, I'll be removing the orange marker so its always off unless turn signal is on. And they look cleaner than stock if done properly
Not a big fan of LUX, a bit too blue for my taste.
And the alcantara headliner would be the last thing I do. Its not a must but it would be nice.

I forgot to mention I have M perfromance exhaust

no i don't think i'll be doing any engine mods. not a fan of superchargers and their constant whine haha. Also I'm a huge fan of OEM, which is why I try to keep my car with no aftermarket parts (except paddle shifter which I might no even do). headlights and headliner will be stock, just customized

i wonder if your friend is the same statie that pulled me over on the Neponset bridge one day ~2 years ago... he was asking me all kinds of questions about my exhaust (i was like oh shit). but it turns out he was looking to buy an M3 and wanted to get the same exhaust .. a real nice cop and an enthusiast.. he even told me to take off at full throttle because he wanted to hear it .. Well, I did it and I saw in my rear view he gave me a thumbs up.. I'm sure everyone in traffic was looking and going W-T-F LOLOLOLOL

The headlight mod you can do that by coding them. I got mine that way, they just turn on when I use the turn signals

I was actually asking about that to a coder. He said it could easily be done. Only problem is that I like to update my software when new version come out. I've heard that the latest software fixes a lot of things and offers ~20 hp increase

Was that you that I saw near Fenway on Saturday night around 7:30???

I had just parallel parked on one of the side streets off Brookline Ave. I saw a white M3 just like yours pull in on the same side street as I was getting out of my car. I was in the Jerez Black sedan...

YUP! I believe so. hahahaha. I live in fenway.
I'm surprised I didn't see your M, I usually spot them and try to talk to the owners.

Nice, I thought about giving you a wave or thumbs up, but I figured you'd think I'm a random crazy person...

I coded mine out myself. I'll going to start doing some coding around the area if anybody wants to get that down.

Nice! I will say that I have gotten a bunch of thumbs up from E46 M3 drivers as we drive by each other.

It's a lot nicer than the Prius drivers who just flip me off...

If it's just for an oil change, just go to Turners or Bavarian.

Last time I called Bavarian, it was $200 for an oil change. Not sure Turners.

I went to the BMW Tulley in Nashua and they quoted me 400ish for an oil change, not happening lol
