Congrats again - your M3 is gorgeous!

Red with CF roof is very sharp!

Orange Front fender side reflectors - gotta go - maybe replace them with CF to match your CF roof.

There are lots of CF mods that would work with your car - like CF rear view mirrors - but IMO your car looks sensational as is.

One thing I would definitely consider is adding the M3 sport exhaust - increased power and an enhanced nice throaty sound that is not too obtrusive.

I general I am probably more conservative regarding mods than many here...I prefer my M straight up.

Congrats on the car man! Love the color combo! The M3 has almost limitless possibilities! If you want to keep the OEM feel, the BMW Performance Exhaust is a great addition. It looks factory with a few tweaks, and it sounds amazing! I would also consider a Type 1 CF diffuser to tie in with the roof and give the rear end a little more aggressive look to go along with the exhaust!

Nice to hear that the Performance exhaust is a good thing. I ordered my 2013 M3 with the performance exhaust and it is about three weeks away. It is now on a boat and I can't wait for it to get here so I can finally sleep.

First thing I did was change the exhaust to get that deep growl and it sounds so much tougher now. Have you considered adding carbon spoiler and diffuser? Vorsteiner have a range for M3s I am considering.

Dark window tinting and black out the lights - that would look great with the red and cf!

Well, I am not the original poster here. I just added a couple of sense to something that worried me. Mine is the Space grey with Fox red/black/black convertible. Not sure where to start yet. The red is nice looking color though

On Nov 1st I got a '13 M3 jet black, black leather, carbon black trim with zcp, zpp, dct, and a few other options. The leather is excellent. The 19" forged wheels that come with the comp package are worth the whole price of zcp. The best pic I have is my avatar.
