I would do both (or the whole kit including side skirts if you will eventually do both), the whole kit will probably run you less as a package anyhow.

If done seperately I would do the rear first!

Rear first.

If your budget is tight later, you can always put oem front lip.

rear because if somebody hits you they will buy you a new one but the front it means most likely you hit somebody so then you would just have to buy another one for yourself.

If you can currently afford either front or rear and you doubt that you will be saving money for both altogether, then go for the rears first. Then, wait for a better looking front (eg. M3 front). That's my current plan right now. I got my rears and I'm now looking for the M3 fronts. Lastly I would get the M3 sideskirts.
