Jeez, you could almost do both. Got my PE for $945 and was quoted some nice 18" VMR wheels for $800. Course, no tires. For me it was the deafening silence of the OEM exhaust that sealed the deal.

I would do H&R springs...wheels. I would do a custom exhaust ( delete the resonator and put some nice tips on there ).

Wheels make the biggest visual change and axle-back exhaust will give you a louder sound. You could probably do both if you sold your current wheels. There's a bunch of little cosmetic things you can do like swap shifter knobs, change the lighting, replacing roundels and of course getting a JB4 tune.

If I were you I'd get wheels, axle back exhaust, shift knob if manual, swap out some of the inexpensive bulbs, get an air intake and BMS tuning stuff.

I would get PI & PE but that's cause I am a Function over form guy. Not going to get a very strong set of wheels with tires for 1800. Your car will change on a PE.

Get something different...non BMW. Do you want to look the same as everyone else?
