Hi everyone..
Firstly.. This is the first forum I ever joined and first post.. "caution newbie alert"

So last year September I decided to take ownership of my first M car a 2015 F80 M3 low millage and still on plan.
Lemme just say coming from a worked 7r this thing is scary and my style of driving had to adjust quite abit from awd to rwd.

Car is still stock besides from some cosmetic work
Stereo speakers is a bummer so decided to amplify the orignal ones and added a small alpine sub.
Rear tyres took a beating from all the hard pulls decided to go broader with the 295 in the back and 275 in front, michlen pss.

Future plans, car feels abit high so got HnR springs needs to be installed but contemplating should I really? Opinions?

Really want to do the downpipe and mid pipes just waiting for one of those black friday specials.

Thoughts on JB never really went the plug and play route always software not sure with bmw.

Looking foward to meeting some of yourll and feel free to share your thoughts

Congrats and welcome.

I came from a 300kw AWD car and it certainly is an adjustment at first Rofl interested to hear some of your other impressions.

PnP is your best bet if on plan... even then be careful when taking the car in for work. Also IMHO start with the drop and then get used to the car first before the power mods.

I love the f80 look - so aggressive! Wish you many happy miles

What a car. Black grills up front and a drop, then enjoy for a bit...then power mods if you still think you need them. Personal opinion, just a DP is enough.
Chat to Nishen at TMSS, amazing workmanship there and they know what they doing.

Congrats and welcome to the M club. Bravo YMB stands out since it was the launch color for the F80. Btw your 2nd last picture really makes the color pop. The color holds up well maintenance wise as you don’t see the swirl marks etc.
