So not a huge update, but a couple new things to the car!

First off just a couple pics at last sundays meet with my buddy and his frozen black!









Then it was time for me to make the long drive down to southern California. Decided to have a little fun taping up the car



So right away I head to EAS to get my exhaust done. Needed to be louder! Decided to go with the OEM Exhaust mod bypass method for the time being. Was suprised at how amazing it sounded. I might put off the eisenmann even longer now



Saw this awesome M235i while I was there. And many other cars as well.



Doing work!



And here is a video of the OEM Exhaust mod. Sounds amazing and even better in person (phone can't capture all the sound. haha)

Yeah always wanted to stop by. And since i'm gonna be in so-cal for a while, I couldn't resist staying away. Plus its always nice getting work done by such professionals. Just drive down and we'll hang out haha

Thank you for the kind words Charlie! You're car is amazing as usual. Can't wait for that carbon roof!

Thanks Jon! I'm very happy with it. Much happier than I thought I would be, so will definitely be running this setup for a while. Eventually when I do the midpipes with a tune i'll go with the eisenmann. This muffler with midpipes would be insanely loud. haha. You're car is looking great! Love the facelift headlights

This would look more amazing with pure white angel eyes! What kind of interior trim does it have?

I wish the E9X were as modifiable as the E46s

Eventually I want to do a angel eye full LED upgrade from OSS or another company. But for now the amber has really grown on me It has the dry carbon fiber interior trim.

E9X's are very modifiable, but just somewhat more expensive than E46's currently. All depends how deep your wallet is But as the new models become more mainstream it should become less expensive.

Well visually there isn't much you can do. Sure you can go crazy with bodykits and stuff but the stock bumpers/hood is pretty much as good as it gets lol
If I had a E9X M3, I'd just slap on a CSL decklid and a CF Lip and call it a day since it looks amazing straight out of the box. My E46 M3 is a different story. Pretty much every piece of my exterior has been or yet to be modified.

I do wonder how the e9x m3s would look with a single exit race exhaust

Yeah my plan is BMW performance spoiler, diffuser and Mode carbon GTS lip to completely the look visually. Then i'll tap into the more expensive mods that I need

I plan on grabbing a diffuser sometime in the future. Not exactly sure what style I want to go with yet, but possibly vorsteiner.
