Officially a new bmw e92 owner in this neck of the woods!!

Well, Just bought an e92 Montego Blue 328i. So far I am loving it (the 20miles Ive driven). Probably end up getting some BBS LMs or something similar here in the near future. I dont have many options in this car other than heated seats haha. Is there any cheaper mods you guys/gals would recommend? Hope to take some pics here in a few days, maybe head up to the Giant Graffiti Wall in Seattle for some photos...anyone down?

Congrats on ur ride!

Some cheap mods would be gp thunders ($20) for ur fogs/halo lights, black kidney grills ($60?), painted reflectors($60?) and m3 replica spoiler ($150)? Look around in the Vendor forum, they may have some deals on some of these.

Black out grill, and maybe black out the chrome window trim. Unless you like the chrome, it does look good with montego though. Good luck, I just leased a 2008 crimson red 328i E90.

Welcome as well.. It's good to see more members in the PNW.

For low $$ cost exterior mods- I would recommend

The M3 or OEM spoiler (<$200)
Black out grills ($60)
Smoked Side Markers ($60)
Aluminum Pedals ($60)
Blackout 328 emblems ($20)
CF Roundels ($40)
Painted Rood Spoiler (<$200)
GP Thunder Bulbs ($20)

But its up to you what floats your boat what you want to put on the car. Word of warning tho - Once you go MOD you'll always go BROKE - Haha

Ya, my friend (Dan) works at the federal way car toys and you can go through him if you would like. All you need to say is "I was referred to car toys from Ed at BMW NorthWest (or any name at any car dealership) for (Product) and was told I can get a Wholesale Discount. And you will get a discount on anything, other than labor. Or you can just goto car toys ask for my roomate Dan and say Brian Referred you.
