I believe he meant smoked reflectors.. to still have the reflecting properties of a stock one, but without the ugly amber color


OP, welcome! Sounds like you're already off to a good start. For body parts, I'd suggest getting the complete E92 M-tech kit. It looks amazing (I have the front bumper on my own car), especially on AW. Here's a link to that:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=199180

Seeing as how you're interested in 5-spoke wheels with a lip, I'd suggest looking into the DPE SL-5's. The iForged Classics have the same look too, so it's really up to you. If you're planning on running 19" wheels, you'll most likely want to go with these tire sizes:

235/35/19 front
265/30/19 rear

It really depends on your budget as we have anything ranging from $900 replicas to $4500+ custom forged wheels.

Here are a few 5 spokes that I like:
