LOL, my memory is fading these days but probably wasn't me. I played a round of golf early morning, dropped off my buddy at tje airport and then lost memory after that... sigh...

Couple easy/low hanging fruit mods I see are:

1) OEM BMW LCI taillights (Chris can code them)
2) Black out or Carbon side M3 grilles
3) Blacked out M3 trunk badge (I sell them, can pick up at my place if you like).
4) Amber reflector delete (you can get the custom painted ones or paint the stock ones).
5) You can run H&R sport springs or sport+. Sport + has a slightly higher spring rate but the drop is the same. I have the regular sport version and the ride is very much stock-like with the added drop. The drop is minimal (one inch), but in my humble opinion makes the stance absolutely perfect.
6) If you want performance a tune is your guaranteed best bet. You'll notice immediate improvement. I went with Evolve, I think Chris uses Mike Benvo. You can't go wrong either way just stay clear of Alpine. Lol.

I also did a full LED interior lighting kit + license place lights and it's made the car look a lot younger.

The intake I'm running now is an AFE. It's drop in. I'll sell it for the cheap if you want it since I won't need it soon. It's one of those lifetime ones.

Pat
Thanks for the list! Is AFE cold air version or CF dry filter? I was thinking about the CF. If CF, I'm interested.

Dry filter (blue). It's just the filter element. You retain all the OEM covers pipes and ducts.

Got it. If you don't need it, I will take it when we meet to install the exhaust. Thank you.

What wheel specs are you running? I'm looking for a new set of 18" wheels and want something flush with beefy tires. Also, I'll take the black M3 emblem when I go by your place. Want to see glossy and flat black in person and decide.

Thanks.

What exhaust system do you have on your e93? I've looking at RKP Street x-pipe (keeping primary cat) which will be connected to Eisenmann Race in the back. However, I've been hearing about drone issue with x-pipe added. I heard people saying the OEM set up sounds a bit drony already, but I don't hear it with the top up. With top down, I heard some but I actually like the deep low sound. Also, I think the heavy back-end with the top tucked in the trunk, I don't think it will be that bad. Just curious whether you have any issues with drony exhaust with your setup. BTW, I could use extra HP but could do without if more free-flowing pipe will produce too much drone.

Rears are 19x11 ET30 (+5mm spacer), so effective offset is ET25 wrapped with 295/30
Fronts are 19x10 ET25 wrapped with 275/30

My car has the fabspeed x-pipe and rear section along with a dinan air intake - all installed by the prior owner. Definitely throatier than stock, but not too crazy. I think it sounds great with the top down, but don't usually drive the car long distances where drone could be a problem. Happy to let you drive it to help you make a decision.

Thank you sir for the offer! I guess we'll need to figure out a time to meet up and check it out.

Sounds good! My Wednesday and Thursday PMs are open after 11 am. Maybe we can do a lunch if you're available. If not, we can do something later in the afternoon. Of course, Pat's welcome to join. Just in case, my # is 3123751151.

I may try to work from home next Thursday which would make lunch a good option. Otherwise, it might need to be on the weekend since my work isn't convenient and it gets dark too damn early to meet in the evening.

That sounds like a plan! BTW, I'm trying to find a time when Pat can help install the axleback setup as I decided to put a hold on the x-pipe option. Instead, I am looking for a new wheels.

BTW, have you guys ever experienced the tow hole cover on the front bumper fall off for no reason? Mine fell off somewhere parking structure at work and my house... I don't anyone tempered with it as I did not find any sign of someone messing with my vehicle. So strange... Maybe it's a sign for me to purchase a tow hook, LOL.
