M3 Planned Mods List - Suggestions

So I am waiting on re-delivery (ED) of my 13' E92 Melbourne Red M3 and I was just planning out my list of mods before it got here, I am going to start with cosmetic first then performance.

All of the parts I am getting is coming from Turner Motor Sports, I would appreciate any insights/suggestions/recommendations on what I have chosen:

I decided against the splitters, you'll scrape. Look into the M Performance CF Interior Kit. Start with the Kidney Grille and side indicator lights and go from there.

Here's what's on my car:

-Lux V3 LED Angel Eyes
-M Performance Black Kidney Grille
-LED Interior Lights
-M Performance Carbon Fiber Spoiler
-ESS Full Exhaust

That sounds incredible. Not a huge fan of the blow off sound at THAT degree, but it's got a unique tone to it. Nice choices on parts!

OP, your list is a good beginning. I would also include painted reflectors. This can be purchased from IND (roughly $75 USD). Here's one example of their work http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=778077.

I also purchased a M3 in MR and have started with a few exterior pieces including the kidney grilles, painted reflectors and side gilles. A carbon rear spoiler is next. Still undecided on the CRT version from IND (painted at the top) or the standard type. Otherwise my car has the M-Performance exhaust. I love the sound but not the look. I may replace it with Akra (slip-on or full).

I got my lights from BMW, but the problem with that is I don't have the footwell lights for the rear, or for the trunk, or for the glovebox. I'll be swapping them out for bimmian ones shortly, that has the full kit.

Got it, thanks.

What do you think of the LED vs Halogen so far? Is the LED light to bright / blue looking?

Honestly, after a couple months, you really enjoy the blue hue and the increase in overall brightness in the car. It really makes the interior of the car feel high quality. The brightness on the BMW kit is PERFECT, but I have to warn you, I've heard from three or four other people that there are kits that make the dome lights too bright, and they ended up swapping them out again.


Honestly, the car should of come with the LED interior lights from the factory.
