A few of the standard upgrade recommendations are:

1. Euro Towhook covers - $50 - Maximillian Importing Co. 800.950.2002
2. Evo Airbox $70 with K&N filter ($50)Maximillian....
3. JC Chip - $250

4. oil pan baffle* - $39 -
5. driver school / car control clinic $50 - your local BMWCCA chapter

*This is basically an essential upgrade if you ever plan on actually "driving" this car. It goes hand-in-hand with the schools. The other upgrades will greatly improve looks and minimally improve performance. The $40 baffle could potentially save you $7k on a rebuild.

Keep up with your maintenance schedule or else your car will nickle and dime you to death when stuff starts to break! With proper care and feeding of your new ///M, it will be around and reliable for a good long time.

Also check out BMP Deisgn, Bavarian Autosport Korman and BimmerWorld for more quality parts and acessories.

You might also want to think about joining the E30 M3 SPecial Interest Group (SIG). Check out for more info on that.

Finally, let's see some pics! ;^)

Take care.
