GIAC Stage II and the BMW PE are my favorite so far. Soon to come are; P3cars boost gauge. Im converting this from my 135 with a custom housing for the ashtray I may also install the Umnitza orion V2 angel eyes

My most favorite has to be Cobb tune. I love the power and practicality. The second best would be the 19" staggered M6 reps with larger front and rear foot print. The third would be a tie between my RennArt catback exhaust and BMW M performance racing alacantra with red/blue stitiching flat bottom steering wheel with M3 retrofit paddles with + for upshifts and - for down shifts. The steering wheel feels thick and soft perfect for spirited driving.....and sound of RennArt exhaust is nice and aggressive without become fart can nasty.

Next up on my list might be down pipes and M3 front and back complete control arms.
nick named "BAD 3"
Cobb tune, RennArt catback non resonated exhaust, M-sport steering (racing alcantara & retrofit M3 paddle shifters.), Alpina B3 transmission flash, AFE powered sealed CAI, LED angels, E93 M3 Front Swaybar, 235/35/19x9 front & 275/30/19x9.5 rear. When in doubt...flat out

Short shift kit with weighted sport shifted and a CDV delete. Totally changed the shifting character of the car. Now is smooth, no more odd 1-2 shifts.

everyone bashes muffler deletes, but i gotta say it's def one of my favorites

obviously there's drone, but i rarely even notice it... it's like you get used to it

it sounds absolutely amazing, it's cheap, and you can just wake up one day and decide you want to do it or change it back in like an hour

plus the snap, crackle, pop is awesome

JB4 because it makes the cars lack of power a little better. Second best mod is having AAA number in the glove box.

Do all of you people (except two) have automatics or something? CDV delete.

I did it on my 2006, and when I traded that in for a 2009, I hated driving the 2009 until I got it in the garage to pull that sucker. I did that before redoing the AA tune, and haven't done the 3stage yet, but man, that CDV blows.

Hard but I'd have to say muffler delete with VMR 710s in gunmetal a close second. The MFD I get to hear every time I drive and always puts a smile on my face. I also put 3.5" dimisa tips which look narsty. The wheels are merely a cosmetic so while it does totally change the look of the car, I only get to appreciate this when I'm not driving.

Muffler delete ftw. I thought it would be way too loud and was pleasantly surprised. Literally the perfect amount of loudness.
