Question '06 e90 325xi noob help with upgrades

Hi all...I'm a noob and I'm ready to start upgrading. I'm looking for advice on what are the best options (with regard to price and quality) for my list of upgrades:

1. Air intake
2. Sway bars
3. Cosmetics...I already have carbon fiber door pillars and mirror covers. I need something to cover the roof rack strips that are starting to chip. Any ideas?
4. Already plan on blacking out the kidney grilles
5. Already purchased new headlight housings
6. Plan on purchasing matte black 19' Avante Garde 310s next spring...should I bother lowering? And if so, springs or coilovers?

I plan to keep the interior pretty much stock, but I'm trying to find an alternative to the the aux cable for my ipod.

I appreciate any ideas and all of your help. Thanks!

You can get an OEM ipod upgrade kit that integrates with the steering wheels controls, etc. Go here to find part numbers.

PS. when at realoem, be sure to look at the accessories section in each category. There are a lot of retrofits available for all kinds of things.
