In what order?

Hi all, I'm new here and new to owning a BMW. My experience with cars is limited to doing my own repairs on crappy beaters from the 80's and 90's to keep them running, not with enhancing an already fantastic and thoroughly modern vehicle.

As such, I was wondering how to go about modding out my 2011 335i Sedan with AT tire warranty and extended warranty? I purchased it with the premium package only, and do not have the sport suspension.

What should be done first, what can wait, and when, if ever, should I do a software tune? For me, maintaining warranty or having a matched warranty for the mods is critical.

I would love to upgrade the suspension as it feels a bit floaty, and possibly the tires as well, although I do have the BMW warranty on the runflats and the rims. And, of course, I would like to get as much HP and torque as possible without sacrificing the longevity of the vehicle.

Thanks in advance to the experienced among you for your suggestions.

You could start with suspension with lowering springs, aftermarket shocks, coilovers, and sway bars.

Wheels and tires can be of your choice from cast 1 piece wheels to forged multi-piece wheels.

Power mods can be a tune(ECU flash, flash loader, or a ECU piggy back), exhaust, down pipes(most of the power will be made here but dealers won't be happy with them when you are in for service but a lot of the guys uninstall when taking the car in for service), intake, intercooler (only really necessary during the summer).
