definitely intake, m3's look pretty damn good stock, why potentially cheapen that with clears.
it's got great looks, concentrate on more power, plus clears usually look funny on a white car anyway.

thanks
i think i'm going to follow that advice.
i might end up saving it and selling my double spoke rims for some M contours...the double spokes look like crap

no prob, that would be a worthwhile exterior upgrade, but probably everything else would make it look gaudy.

personally i would never get clear taillights...thats just too much of a "riceboy" id get clear corners and intake if i were you...the clear corner smooth out the car's looks since the amber corner lights stick out so damn bad. thats my two cents.

Get the BMW oem clears, look much cleaner than the amber corners. Esp. when matching with alpine white.

That's an attractive price you've got. Where're you getting them from? I'm looking for a set of clears for E46 coupe too.

I'd definitely go for the M Contour wheel upgrade over the other options. Those just look great on the 3 Series cars IMO, much better than the dbl spoke. And you still retain the factory OEM look too.

yeah the clears are real cheap because i was thinking about buying them from thsi guy who ordered them for his M3 coupe but ended up selling the car. the two rears were brand new and cost 206 oem it hink and the fronts are around 100 for the side and corners. i still think i'm going to do the intake first though.
