Get a couple of track days under your belt and don't waste money on useless mods like Tint.

Not many know this, but you must mod your car in the following order:

1. clear bra and tint (protection FIRST!!)
2. painted or clear reflectors (orange ones are just way too ugly)
3. springs (improves handling and more aggressive stance)
4. exhaust/air filter (make your car sound how it was intented, also add a couple of HP)
5. wheels (bling last. also, aftermarket wheels just don't look right on an unlowered car)

I'd spend the money on driving schools. With 414 hp, we all definitely need some driving instruction on the cars. Any money left over will go to brake pads and new tires that will be shot from the driving schools. That way you can really learn the dynamics of the car. I would hate to see someone get hurt or killed by showing off 414 hp with DSC turned off on the street.

Well,since the M is almost perfect...
No wheels, I think the 19's look perfect
Exhaust.. Maybe, but the stock sounds perfect,not to much
Interior? nothing much to do there
Exterior? Reflectors
I suggest you go for a Brembo Brake kit. The couple of thousand bucks will be invested

If you have money left, buy a really nice gift for the wife/gf and enjoy the thankyousex ?

I cannot agree more with you!

What I will also seriously consider (but only when warranty expires or at least after the 2nd year of ownership and all going well till then) is chipping. And if I do the chip I will most likely also do the Brembo BBK upgrade (good break performance upgrade & nice looks too!)
