Do you mean an accessory for the car? How about black kidney grills, or the BMW performance spoiler? or Carbon fiber mirror caps? Valentine 1 radar detector? A new exhaust? Wheels? An X6M for the winter?

You don't say whether his new toy is a sedan, coupe or convertible. Makes a difference.

A REALLY nice present would be an M Driving School. Spendy, but worth every penny. A less expensive option would be membership in BMW CCA and a couple of High Performance Driving events at Lime Rock.

Hope you realize that one accessory that often comes with an M3 is a 25 year old blonde. Good luck on that front.

Pretty cool wife. I'd let you drive my M3. Skip his birthday and buy yourself a new car for Valentines.

Really? I keep getting a new one every few weeks even without placing an order each time. I daresay it's nearly becoming tiresome keeping track.

i'd say some OEM carbon fiber mirror covers. if you get them from BMW and he doesn't want them, he'd have credit for bmw parts that he could definitely use. i'm guessing since he got an m3 for his birthday that these would be within your budget. you can order them from your local dealership or choose from one of the fine site sponsor dealers here.

Yeah, get him to get you something for Valentine's.

I second the M school gift. Lots of fun.

My wife got me a BMW M shirt for Christmas after she found I ordered my first M3. It was really simple, but I liked the material. Plus, I'm sure you already know that nothing will be able to compete with his new M3.
