If you had a few thousand $ and an E92...

What would you do?

Wheels?
Exhaust?
Brakes?
Exterior?
Interior?

First and most affordable mods would be clear bra ($1600), tint($350), and clear bumper reflectors ($80).

Then I'd do the interior LED xenon light kit ($100).

As for the remaining $2700 or so, I'd probably do the air filter and exhaust.

Cheers!

I would def say a set of rims, a nice drop, and a affordable exhaust system.

Since I already have clear bra, painted reflectors and matte black grills. But if your M3 is completely stock and brand new, I would suggest these 1st.

A few thousand is rather vague. What are we talking? Three grand? With a few thousand dollars, I'd probably opt for a nice suspension set-up (..2k or less....probably 2k+ for a setup that works with EDC) and bank the rest. With a few grand, it would be quite difficult to buy a really nice set of wheels & tires, and I am not concerned with changing my exhaust system nor modding my interior. The OEM brakes are fine for the type of driving that I do (..daily driver/light track duty), so upgrading them for a performance BBK would be overkill. The only exterior mods that I would consider are a front lip/rear decklid.

I personally would go with some new shoes and suspension work first... Go with some KW Variant 3's would really set your car off

I'd say some wheels & exhaust or just some exterior parts like spoiler & lips. You could also do suspension but I would get some wheels first. Let us know if you guys need a quote for anything.

Exhaust kit (for sound) and I'd lower it slightly. Otherwise, I like the car just the way it is.

He wouldn't be able to purchase all of those items with a few thousand dollars. The LTW wheels alone would probably run him 4k. Subtract the wheels, and he's good to go. Good suggestion though!

It depends on how much a "few" really is. But the first mod I did after clear bra and tint, was my exhaust.

Slippery slope. Once you start it is very hard to stop. I'm staying stock on this one as long as I can, except for some cheap light 18" wheels and tires for track use only.
