Run out of ideas

So I have a problem now. I have had this car for about 3 years. Its the best car I have ever had and I plan on keeping this car forever. That is not the problem.

The problem. What do I do now. I don't want more power but I am running out of ideas to make this car special. It has an awron vent gauge. A bmw led steering wheel. Updated i drive and Apple TV. It has bavgruppe updated headlights. Full carbon aero. The list can go on forever for what's been done so far. But wat else can be done besides wheels now.

I have three different sets of wheels for my car. When I get bored of the look, I just change them, and it changes the whole look.

Drive it & enjoy it!

Other than that, maybe de-chrome (side vents & trunk badge), carbon fiber side mirror replacements, change caliper color. Car looks good...I wouldn't overthink it and end up doing something that has an adverse effect.

If it were me and I ever got to the point where I had nothing left to do - I'd make sure servicing was complete (even maybe ahead of schedule) then drive and enjoy, and save the money for a complimentary car which would provide a very different experience to the M.

Beautiful car I think SMB is the best color for these cars especially on the convertible. I would have bought a c7 or f-type but i couldn’t resist once I seen a SMB M6 in person. I think you need black wheels and tint, just my opinion makes the color pop more.

I have SMB myself but Black wheels are no go, need bright colors to make it pop but color choice is very subjective

Rocco! Looks so good brother. I know you have done a lot here with your own hands also, which is gratifying. I don't know what else to suggest but perhaps an interior color change? Superman style?

Not going to change performance but certainly could punch up the individual aspect!!!

You have one of fewer than 2700 cars built for the US market across their entire 6 years of production. How much more 'special' did you have in mind?

As others have said, colour will be subjective, but its your car. For me silver!

Not gonna lie, this made me laugh more than it should have.

Car looks great, changing up the wheels to something different is likely your best bet.

Obviously, you just don't have enough money for good ideas.
