Friend's Car

My friend is thinking about purchasing a BMW E46 ///M3. He found a Black on Black 2003 E46 M3 with a 6 Speed Manual and he is thinking about getting:

Vorsteiner CSL Replica CF Front Splitter, Vorsteiner CSL Replica CF Rear Diffuser, Vorsteiner CSL Replica CF Trunk Lid, H&R Sport Springs, Agency Power, Exhaust System, Quatro Performance CF Strut Brace, BBS 19" RG-R Alloys, FormulaONE Pinnacle Series 35% Tint, and I would Debadge the car.

'Looking at spending ~$10,000 on a $30-$40,000 used E46 ///M3 and he might even drop in a Supercharger to boost the power. I would just wondering if you guys have any suggestions / comments.

Thanks

You guys can't tell me if a lowered M3 with 19" BBS's and some CSL Replica bodywork looks good?

My friend just got a Corolla, a used one with 20K miles on it...he plan to get tint and then maybe the fuzzy dice hanging from mirror...

You guys think it'll look good... Spending 189 bucks on a $9000 car?

Corolla is the oddity that looks good rolling on smaller rims. If you can find a nice set of 13's, that is sweet. I wouldn't do the dice, but changing out the factory mirrors makes the car. People laughed at Japanese cars back in the early 70's when our parents were finishing HS, but driving a mint '73 1600 with 4-spd is da bomb today.

Why don't you ask yourself if it 'looks good' ?
