Then next wave of mods was wheels, blackout kidney grills, black-painted side reflectors.

Wave of mods after that was backup camera, black lower mesh grill and aero lip.

Christmas will be Eisenmann Race exhaust

After that I have thought about light windshield tint (50 or 70) or tune (cobb or jb4... still can't decide after hours upon hours of researching on here).

After that i'll be content for awhile... atleast my wallet hopes so

Did you really have to compare a windshield tint to tune? Do you the tune. Best money you ever spent

First mod was black kidney grills. This led to GP Thunder angeleyes. This led to LED turn signals. This eventually left me with an FBO car, new wheels/tires, aero lip, M3 skirts, tint, vinyl wrapped roof and trim, OSS type headlights, CF bootlid, and so on and so forth.

and to think, it all started with some kidney grills lol

Would adding an aftermaket subwoofer count?
Next up is a complete sound system overhaul, tint, black grill and lowered suspension.

I'm not trying to compare tint to a tune. The tune would be far more satisfying, but since I came from a slow car I figured i'd wait to get bored of the power of my 335i before i jump up even more. Eventually you become sensitized to changes. My brother has a cobb on his car and is looking for more so why expedite the process for myself? I also figure in the meantime advancements will be made to current tunes. I'm waiting for a tune that doesn't make me compromise some features for others.

Actually, I posted wrong. Totally forgot about my first mod...

Nice door ding from some fat a$$ rear passenger in a landau top Lincoln Town Car.

Not sure if dent repair will be able to work it out - right on the accent line of the door panel.

My first mods were body painted reflectors, black kidney grilles, and vinyling the trim matte black.

My Dinan Stage 3 kit/ intercooler/oil cooler/exhaust/pedals/mats were my last mods on this car. No wait, the M3 spoiler was

This is probably it for the car. It has everything else I could possibly need. Maybe I'll paint my 18" winter/ stock wheels gloss black.

I think the half wrap is interesting. The full wrap would definitely be a little more subtle, but I doubt that is what you are looking for. Do you have pics from any other angles?

I also think the back of the N52 is sexier than the N54's n N55's
