I'll be having a CSL roof and bumper installed in a few weeks. Then i'll stop modding and focus on replacing weathered items, ie: rear window trims.

What he means is... what do you want out of the car when all is said and done? Are you gonna track it? Will it be your DD? Will it be a show car? Start with that then itll be easier for you to get an idea where you should go.... sounds like you want to buy stuff just to buy it.

I personally think ****ing around with your interior unless you are going to track your car because it wont make a dam difference. Why ruin the comfort that the Factory interior provides?

Do some CSL mods, and if you want fast, supercharger or HPF kit if you have the money.

pmoney,

I'll be getting coilovers next month as well as a Scorza CSL bootlid / diffuser and a set of Beyern Mesh wheels for summer to change out my CSLs...

I just finished doing my carbon fiber trim for the interior. Maybe in the summer I'll go up to Mass to a local tuner there and have my M custom tuned.

Other than that, the rest of the year will be focused on maintenance rather than mods. I will have done enough mods for the year by the end of February...

I already have a Strass lip on my front bumper so getting the CSL rep bootlid and diffuser should finish off the outside of my car and getting coilovers and lowering my car just a bit should do it

Gonna finish the car...hopefully. That means interior is going to the upholstery shop and then to the body shop. I'll probably wait on a drop for next year.

Scorza. Here is the link on M3Forum.net. Go check it out.

I feel this product will be one of the best products you can get to the OEM CSL bootlid.

I plan on adding a CSL Trunk and Diffuser this year, and getting all the electronics installed. I am redoing the stereo system to give me the ability to enjoy music rather than just coverup road noise.

Installing a Blinder Laser Jammer, Garmin 2610 GPS and modifying the speaker/power for a more complete install. I also will work on maintenence, like adding shocks and struts to the car, and taking care of all the little bits.

Also hoping to change from CSL wheels to OEM 19" for summer.
