    Power or Style???

    Hello All,

    I'm somewhat new to this forum but it seems there are a few more level headed members on this forum than other, so I'll post my totally subjective question here. I recently bought an E92 M3 in Melbourne Red. I love this car. Smooth car all the way around. However, I want to mod it. I have already made it a FBO car but like some others I know, I could always use more power. However I do not track or race the car. So here's my question; Supercharger or wheels/Arkym bumper/diffuser? No one can use the power of these cars on the street "legally" as they come from the factory and that makes me lean towards styling first. On the other hand... I'm a man and therefore I love POWWAAA!!

    What route did most of you go first or enjoy more? Power or Style? And the cost of a supercharger for these cars is a bit on the high side :-/

    PS... I know this is a matter of opinion, I just want to hear what you guysand gals think. Thanks.

    Power. You can't see what your car looks like while driving it.

    This is a power forum.

    As much as I want to agree with that I would say style. Your already full bolt on and like you said you can't legally reach the limit of these cars and you also said you don't race. Maybe look into an aggressive tune to give it some more kick for under a grand?

    The car already has style it's a BMW.

    I mean whatever my car has both I don't need to choose.

    If I had to choose though, I've got to have that power...

    Power -- The E9x M3 already has beautiful body lines and you'll def get more enjoyment out of a ~150-200 HP gain by bolting on a blower. NOW make the smart choice & hit up @evolve
