Starting to Mod...

So I've decided that there are a few things that need to change on my LMB M3.

I've already purchased LUX H8 eyes but was looking at reflector delete, oem black glossy grill, and perchance new floor mats (m3 embroidered).

Does anyone have a recommendation on store/site to purchase these from? Any other mods I could consider?

It's a slippery slope... Some, like you and me start with the easy stuff, but it only leads to the hard core stuff. Highyo jumped straight to the heroin!!

As for the cosmetic stuff, European Auto Source (EAS) and IND are two well know retailers. Also check some of the forum sponsors...

I hope you ordered the new Lux V4's as they look very good. As for mods, good luck and let us know how it works out for you. It's not only a slippery slope, it's a black hole that seriously never ends...........Phil

Tell me about it... What started out with stage 1 dinan on the 335i 4 weeks later turned into CoBB stage 1 aggressive +Dinan FMIC, and Stage 3 suspension, and was only getting worse as I was looking at Brembo BBK and Vargas Turbos...

I'm on the phone with ESS (not sure I want VT2-650 if VT3 is coming) and Gintani about throwing some serious bank into a supercharger then hit the car with the Stage 3 suspension, LSD and Stoptechs. I just have problems getting over how cheap the Alpha 12 is for the GT-R and figuring I could go ham with that thing
