I refuse to place junk on any of my rides so trying to knock out the research first.
K&N 57-Series and 63-Series Intake BMW E46 3 Series and M3
Carbon Fiber SMG Paddles for BMW E46 M3
Smoked BMW E46 M3 Side Markers
Kidney Grills : Matte Black
E46 M3 Side Grills
and VMR 710 Matte Black wheels ( Dont know what size would be best though)
I have heard that the cold air intakes don't do much for our cars. If you search around some folks have had problems with the K&N. Though it does appear to change the note of the car's roar.

I know the desire to mod ones car...but ultimately what is your end goal? For example, one day I plan to put a turbo on my car. With that said, its kind of pointless to buy headers or a CAI because those would all have to go. I don't want to buy things twice or buy something and then a year later sell it because it won't be needed on the "end" product.

Since you are also a SMG owner, I would say go get the CSL SMG tune. Much smoother IMO.
