Oh wait...... I read wrong, thought I read 335i. Four hour sleep fail. ops:
A cold air intake would be a nice mod though.

An intake and tune would help. Maybe try and lighten it some. Some swaybars.

Why would you not consider a tune?.... 500 bucks for 20 Hp gain on a 28 is the best for your buck. I suggest going to the NA engine threads and do some reading. I personally have a 51 and before I knew that I believed I had a n52 and I was going to do a 3 stage swap which you should consider. But assuming you're looking for performance mods I recommend headers, PI and PE, and a tune.

Only problem is if I did get a diffuser I'd want quad exhaust. Though my e90 is only a 328, I wouldn't want quad exhaust with peoples knowledge that its not an M3 or even a 335.

Id still look killer nice though. I mights just say F it and do it anyways with a performance exhaust.

I would definitely go for the M3 rep and lip. Maybe eventually add a M3 hood like so.
