335i to m3 poser?

Would I be considered a poser if I had a 335i, made it faster than an m3 and make it look similar to an m3. I feel like doing all this is cheaper than getting an m3. We are using the base e92 or e93 (I don't remember the model name)

Actually, it's not, if you go the distance. More. Mechanical mods alone at least $7500

Save your money and just buy a M3.

Most people who know the real things will recognize fakes, if it is a Louis Vuitton or Prada bag, a Rolex watch or an M3. Usually those are the people who own a real version and will certainly consider you a poser or a pretender. My thoughts are to either enjoy the 335i with all the enhancements you can make, or go get an actual M3. Calwaterboy is right, you won't be able to duplicate the M3 with addons unless you spend more than you can get an M3 for. Good luck.

Depends on who you're trying to impress. Just drive what you want.

335i to m3 poser?

Don't make it look like an M3, that's very poser. But if you have an N54, you can make your 335i faster in a straight line with a flash tune and full bolt ons.

That's like saying you bought a Rolex Submariner but you don't like it and you want to change it to a Rolex Yacht master . You simply cannot do that , you would be taking the integrity away from the 335i

Pure poser, but hell, many do just what you're trying to do. It's your car but you're talking a LOT of money to convert other than just straight line speed.

No. You might be thought a poseur, though.
