Have some extra money for my car. Suggestions?
 
And before everyone goes crazy, all maintenance is up to date. All of it! So now that thats out of the way, i'm looking to spend some money on my car. I have what you can see in the picture including mtech2 rear, OEM LED Tails, and lip spoiler. Any suggestions on what I should get? Give any suggestion regardless of the price! haha. Curious to see what else I should do to this baby.

CSL trunk? M3 Mirror?

farmdog 09-13-2011 12:53 AM

M3 mirrors and a drop.

AA Supercharger, buy it used off a member.

I'm happy with the power my E46 has. If I really wanted more power, I wouldn't waste my money on a supercharger, I'd sell my car and buy an M3 haha.

Not really a waste of money when it would bring you to near M3 performance levels for a fraction of the cost.
That, and you claim to be on top of maintenance, meaning the imaginary "budget" M3 you'd purchase would have to go through an entire overhaul.

Is it a manual or strep ? If latter then this is what you need, best bank for buck IMO

M3 SMG wheel with paddle shifts hooked up to the steptronic M mode. Easy DIY too.

Very valid points. The option is still available. But happy with the power so far. haha.

I've heard about this being done! Definitely want to do it. I'll look around for a M3 steering wheel.

I agree. Maybe a subtle drop but otherwise just enjoy the car - it's looks great as is. Some of these suggestions are just silly...

eneka 09-13-2011 01:58 AM

hmmm how about interior mods? maybe a dynanav?

zhp M54 09-13-2011 03:24 AM

Get some interior mods.

dmax 09-13-2011 04:37 AM

First a paint correction done by a pro. Your car looks great to me, though a good detailer can make the car look amazing. Most here can't do that on their own...maybe you can.

Gold bullion in the trunk for when you want to go to the mountains and need traction in the snow. Also good if you want to plan for your retirement, graduate education, a home, marriage? :lmao: Among the less ugly mods, I like the trunk lip. Don't know if your headlights can be updated, but seeing well is nice.

Leatherique, gummi pfledge, xl50, and ambers!

benzedid 09-13-2011 04:49 AM

M3 side grills. a little drop. is that ur roof mat falling??

JT_3K 09-13-2011 05:49 AM

Go for the CSL stack. CF the hood, trunk, roof, airbox and bumper inserts...

younGun392 09-13-2011 07:00 AM

Black out the roof. Go for a drop also. Spacers for the front and back also maybe? M3 folding mirrors also. Apart from that your just about set. Btw, got any rear shots? An M TECH II rear would probably flow quite nice as well:thumbsup:
