    I thought they all had strut braces as standard, mine got a BMW M strut brace.

    You could stick some CSL carbon flipper splitters on it they look cool

    What about a remap for a few more BHP and Nm?? Would get approx 17-20bhp and 25-30Nm torque.

    I've read loads of tuning guides and they recon it needs a lot of money spent on a M3 to get that sort of power increase, more than a remap anyway.

    You sure you are getting that much
