06 E90 mods?

Hi guys! first off I'm new to e90post and can say I already have learned a lot in such a short time. I was wondering what you guys would recommend for mods on my 06 e90 jet black 325i? i know there is not much you can achieve performance wise but id still like to give it a shot. What do you think? shoot me what you think and pictures

Current Mods:
matte black grills,35% tints all round, CF roundels, blacklines, and air scoops and As of now I currently like my 161 wheel set up but will change after awhile

Are you on sport springs? If not, I'd say a drop and if you plan on keeping OEM wheels, get spacers for sure. It'll look sooooo much better.

Sport package suspension and wheels are good bang for the buck. It is easy to find cheap take offs.

In regards to performance you can do the following:

- (3) Stage Intake Manifold Swap alongside with a Eurocharged or AA Tune. Will at the minimum give you e90 330 power (255hp) up to 270hp (advertised hp). Cost for both shouldn't be no more than 900-1K.

- Supposedly Gavin @ MMW is currently in the tuning stage for his supercharger project. If all goes well with the tuning, that will be a nice mod (Estimated 340hp+ for Stage 1).

I think a flame Vinyl will be the best bang for your buck.

Edit: I feel your pain OP, my first car was a SAAB 900S. If you know anything about SAABs, it was just about the last of the non-turbo cars they put out. While all the 900SEs and newer 9-3s were able to add HP easily by virtue of their turbos, I was stuck adding an air take or new pipes for very minimal HP gains. Bottom line, if you have the 325 E90, mod the exterior.
