In need of advice.

Got my second car because I got a big boy job. And I need some advice on what to do to this bad boy. I wanted a 335i but I saw this deal and couldn't pass it up. It is my first BMW and I've always wanted one since I was a kid.

I would enjoy it. Once the mod bugs hit your paychecks will go to the car and not the bank.

I am sorta screwed. Especially with summer coming, but for the most part I am really handy in the garage and have done sound systems for a while. Not that its hard to put in some subs, amp and an after-market radio but its something!

whatever you do, do not let the crisp pause. it would be a nuisance to undertake the crime.

and careful with the modbug!

very nice clean car man!! welcome i hope you enjoy the car as much as the rest of us enjoy ours!! let the mods begin!! just some mods to have a look at!

1. Blackline taillights. Reasonable price and improves the rear-end of the pre-lci E90s heaps!
2. Performance exhaust. The 325i is so quiet and the Performance Exhaust just sounds so damn good for relatively little money.
3. Lower it... do it on the cheap with springs else spring for some coils
4. Wheels
5. roof spolier & m3 lip spoiler
6. front splitter. nice and easy to install and very cheap around $80 painted!! and improves the look drastically

In that order.

With #1 on your list I'll probably do angel eyes too at the same time. And I'll get wheels probably before or during the lowering part because I want to make sure it will all fit. But boy did you just get me a excited!

Side note, what size should i get on the wheels?

if you are looking for angel eyes you will need to replace your halogen light for a xenon setup as mentioned! but be ready for your wallet to hurt! its not cheap at all

What if I got something like this? Would this be the only thing I have to get or do I have to buy something else too?
