    Which car do you have, some cars have predrilled holes, with plastic caps over, which are removable, so you can retro fit them.

    6 series. I'm gonna take a look. However, this reminds me that I could use the door compartment as well.

    I just toss my sunglasses in the door's side compartment. No issues so far.

    I also refuse to spend money on shades more expensive than ray bans, so I don't have any hang ups on them getting damaged.

    Oliver Goldsmiths are damn nice, just a shame my head is too big.

    Never heard of Oliver Goldsmith up until this thread and just looked them up. They look very nice, especially in terms of quality. Seems like they're hand-made?

    I just have a pair of aviators and wayfarers from ray ban and call it a day.

    The stock exhaust note of the f30 / f82 m3 / m4 sounds so tame. So disappointed.

    When has the M3 ever had a nice stock exhaust note? Everyone hated the rasp of the E46 (I personally loved it) and the E9x was nothing to write home about.

    Either way, it's nothing an aftermarket unit can't fix. No biggie.

    The e9x does have a nice induction note that saves it somewhat, though.

    I can't imagine buying an aftermarket exhaust for the E92 M3. The prices for mods are ridiculous these days, Akrapovic is nice.... but shit, you get that, some BBS du jour plus bigger PSS, some suspension, some Chinese-made carbon fiber lip, and you've already spent an additional 20% of the car's value, which is a lot these days. That Gruppe-M intake is like state school tuition money. I miss the 90's, when you could get everything done for under 5 stacks.

    You could find a cheaper exhaust than akropavic, those are north of 5k alone, hms makes great sounding exhausts.

    My car has a built-in suede-lined eyeglass case overhead in between the sun visors.
