Looks really good! I like the wheels. Stock suspension?

Solaris Invisibulbs. Will make your front corners actually look clear

Clear, Smoked or Painted reflectors. Will also really freshen the look of the front of the car

BMW Shadowline Vinyl for the Chrome around your windows

Pre-Painted M3 lip spoiler

You probably already know that your windows are getting a bit purple.

PS: If you feeling ambitious... get eBay headers. :thumbsup:

EDIT: If you want performance mods I can tell you from experience that headers and a diff swap to a higher ratio diff will make the biggest impact on acceleration. Pullies, intake, and a tune always help.

For suspension, just save up for coilovers.

Thanks man i appreciate the respect

reflectors on the immediate list, m3 lip still debating between ebay or quality but is a must. yes stock suspension coils are on the list for after college (another year). headers and exhaust are a huge priority for this summer.

Sounds good man. You and me are doing pretty similar stuff with our cars.

The Jlevisw spoiler is really nice because it comes pre painted in your color and all you have to do is stick it on with the supplied tape

I'm hopefully doing coils soon. Im going for AST4100's :drool:

I bought eBay headers just because for $51 you just cant really go too wrong. So far so good with them. If you need some help with headers later on feel free to pm me. Ill just tell you now that spark plug non-foulers wont work with ebay headers. Its actually really difficult to even get the headers in with the O2 sensors, So I just relocated them to the "drugbin" and wired the simulator up there. Heres a vid to help you out :thumbsup:

Lots of good info in the description of the video about my car's setup. I know I sound like I'm a gay 11 year old, but "dont worry about it" :rofl:

I want the Jlevisw spoiler, the back end of the car i have to say is my least favorite part, and i know that will improve the look. Have you had any experience with the ebay knock offs?

Honestly, JLeviSW's spoiler is most true to the real M3. The ebay knockoffs, when comapaired to a real m3 spoiler, look completely different.

I really like the back end of the car, the rear quater pannel really
