The latest mod, a cosmetic one!

Found a great deal on an OEM E90 M3 rear decklid spoiler, factory painted A22 Sparkling Graphite. I just couldn't pass it up. The guy is local too (Lake Stevens area), but it was still cheaper to ship it.

Anyway, it arrived today and, like a kid at Christmas, I couldn't wait. I like it, I like it a lot!

Thanks James. I think blacklines are the next cosmetic mod. I'm really starting to jones for a new exhaust with quads (leaning towards AE.) Bastuck would be nice, but it costs the same for a muffler as the complete AE DP-back system.

Stay away from Bastuck, Eisenmann, Dinan, ect exhausts. Theyre utterly pointless. I never knew why anyone would spend 2k+ on a mod that only increases noise and nothing else. That sounds awfully like ricers putting cherry bomb mufflers on their ford festivas to me

Yeah, I'm not terribly interested in LOUDER, but in better performance and of course, the look of quad tips. I might check into SuperSprint too, but I think they are off-the-charts expensive. I haven't done all my research yet, so I'm still quite a way from making a decision.

Pointless unless you;

1) Love the look.
2) Love the sound.
3) Don't want to spend a Saturday morning removing parts before a dealer visit because of warranty concerns.

To each his own, enjoy your ride . . .

Actually, he said he was interested in performance, not sound. So a Dinan exhaust is pointless because it just makes noise
