I am getting my M6 on Monday and plan on doing some basic mods. I am going to drop it with KW Variant 3's, get ASR exhaust http://youtube.com/watch?v=orWBy5AL-AQ , and switch out the rims for some 360 Forged CF5ives.

My question is how long should I have the car before it is wise to start modding it? Should I wait till the break-in is finished or beyond?

Don't mod at the dealer, they seem to frown upon that. At the very least, wait until you drive off the lot. :deal:
That would not even be a consideration...at all...

Who would mod at the dealer?

I'm not talking about warrenty, I'm talking about what is better for the car.

Start modding NOW!!!!
You can do all the above mentioned mods, although the exhaust will tempt you to WOT which you shouldn't during break-in....

Don't forget to add to your list:
RPI scoops
BMC filters
charcoal delete

I would wait until past break-in. Chances are rare, but you never know you may get a car that has problems (although, again, very rare). Best to drive it around for the 1200 miles and just make sure it is all good and no issues.

Then go nuts :)

There are mods that you can do at the dealership. BMW performance
mods as well as Dinan mods. Possibly more depending on your
relationship with your tech and/or SA.

Better for the car? In terms of power or longevity? Who knows.

I would wait until after the 1200 mile service. Technically you
aren't supposed to be running the car hard during this time. If
you follow the suggested/required break-in then why would you
need more power during this time?

Rip out the charcoal filters before you take it off the dealer's lot and dispose of them in his dumpster...

Start ordering now. By the time everything is ready, you'll probably have 1200 or more anyways. Plus the mods your looking at don't effect the break in period nor the manuf. warranty. :thumbsup:
