Ms are expensive and I would recommend buying a different car till you learn how to drive properly (high performance driving). right now I have a '01 530i which is an improvement over the 735il, however, I still have not learned how to manage the 240 something horses that pull it ... so untill then I am not getting a M or upgrading any performance parts < cold air intakes, superchargers, turbos, etc.
Its always a good idea to upgrade suspension and brakes once you find out what true brake fade is, and how lousy stock suspensions can be. Then you upgrade and realize how big of a difference those new upgrades really make...
.. just my $0.02
haha, wow. i wouldnt get an m as my first high performance car cause i would never be able to handle that so im working on maybe doing something to get some more money so i can get an older one but its probably gonna take a while to actually afford it
