Hey. I'm actually still debating. I got hd fogs and lux angels. Window tint for sure. Other than that I'm still looking for ideas. Someone mentioned lowering but I don't know much about it.

Hi. Very Nice combination indeed!
Question for you - you are having it shipped from Alberta I'm guessing from the "BMW Edmonton" sign - I just did something similar from Newfoundland to Ontario, but I'm going to pick it up myself to enjoy the drive. I presume you had to negotiate that as part of the deal? NL to ON is apparently $1400 if I were to have them ship it. I would be interested how you got the dealerships to cooperate on such a thing.

Thoughts on how to spend more money on her?
Mostly mentioned already - 35% tint all around, wheels, drop...normal stuff to start!

I prefer the subtle 35% tint, and all around not back/front dark/light - darker in the back provides for a "slicker" more "b.a." type look, but also makes it a huge pain in the pooper to back up at night! I have 25% (or was it 20%... I forget) over factory on my SUV and it looks super sweet in the daylight, but I practically need a spotter to back up at night!

Thanks for the compliments. Ya I asked them to cover shipping. The car was about $33000 and they knocked about $2200 off total and that included shipping. I thought of driving as well but just don't have the time. That will be fun though.

35% sounds good but might be a little light with the tan seats.

Doe anyone know anything about lowering??

Anyone know what that little device is on the trim in the middle of the dash? It looks like some sort of cell phone holder. Never seen one before.

-20% tints all around, nothing on the windshield (Light interior)
-Debadge
-M3 lip spoiler
-Wheels/Drop
-BMW PE
-Front splitters

Car looks amazing, and congrats! You have a really good base to work from. I think if you go with the above (Slow process, no rush), your car will look fantastic.

Performance exhaust is an OEM BMW exhaust they sell/install at the dealership. I believe it goes for around 1k, but it sounds really good. Youtube it

Congrats! Black cars are a PITA to keep clean, but so worth the effort!

Love the interior too. Post pics as you mod it!

I suggest you get coilovers they're about $1500, the cheaper route are sprins which are aabout $300 but they aren't good for your cars shocks and in the long run can end up ruining them. You get what you pay for so do it right the first time.
