I finally picked up my first ever M3.

2011 E93 looks like it's optioned out, only mod is H&R Springs.

I'm going to have it service at SMS European.

Mods, initially, I'm going to focus on appearance details. Maybe later on, I'll work on making performance upgrades.

I'll post my updates from time to time and look forward to meeting cool members out on the road.

nice car!

Love the drop, just needs some spacers to push the wheels out! I love to see modded convertibles so what are your plans?

Update

Thank you everyone.

I dropped the car off with Brandon at SMS European in Huntington Beach for an initial service; oil change, spark plugs and the like. The first impression is very positive. There were no issues, codes or problems needing addressing.

I decided to paint the Valve covers and Upper Strut bars in Wrinkle red to give the engine bay a little personality. The parts are getting powder coated at the time of this writing.

I'm also getting the calipers powder coated black for a cleaner look and since the calipers are out, I decided to get to red SS brake lines.

I have also decided to give the car a sportier look by adding Carbon fiber exterior accents and adding AG 359 black wheels.

All CF: Autotecknic Lip, Vents, Mirror Caps, Trunk Spoiler and side markers.

I'll have pictures and video up soon.

I look forward to your feedback.

Cheers.

Yeah. It's from Tim's at Autobahn West in El Cajon. Really nice garage.

Mine is much more humble than that. I'll have pictures of mine as soon as the car is back from it's first service and upgrades.
