2013 E92 project

I'm so excited to have even the smallest mod on my baby!

The splitters and performance exhaust came ordered from the factory. So that IMO does not count...

I installed the color matching front reflectors and the ///M colored grille.

After work today I hope to have the side gills in a matte finished installed.


I would like to ask what you think should be next... keeping in mind I like the clean OEM look.


Cheers!

I don't really care for the M-colored grill. But it's not what I think, it's how you feel about it. I can't tell in the pics you posted, but is that grill matte like the side gills you're going to install? That would be nice. Looking forward to more pics after the gill install.

Anyhoo, looks great. I love the splitters on that color of M3.

Next up, IMHO, a rear diffuser. Or get some performance mods: e.g. a BBK, or say, a Dinan suspension package. Or you could just leave it alone. It'll still be great. In fact, if your mods are only going to be cosmetic from this point then keep it just like it is. GL.


Cheers,

Ersin

Side gills installed.

Honestly I thought it would have had more of an "effect."

Looks good none the less.


What to do now???

It's amazing how much character the CF splitters add to this car.

Spacers... Get those rears out flush to the fenders. Or new rims with an offset that achieves it too, I like the look of the stock rims with spacers, makes a wonderful look from rear and rear side.
