Well, since you're in SoCal, you should make an appointment to see Long Tran ASAP.

It depends on what you plan doing with your new BMW.

Are you trying to move towards performance? aesthetics? both?

Which one did you want to get first? If you want performance, I would start with the JuiceBox 3 ECU tune. Definitely will provide you with more power.

If you want something for the exterior, wheels are definitely your best bet. We've been selling a very good amount of VMR V710 wheels that we have available for you.

How much you looking to spend??

Do you want performace...or cosmetic changes??

Send a PM to longtran...he can help you get parts/paint/install. Best deal in SoCal.



BTW...I know you are new. But if you want to be 1 of a kind. Consider taking off the sedan front, and putting on the coupe front.

Well right now i'm looking to do either, especially cause my 16th bday is coming so i'm gonna have money to do stuff to it. I'm buying the jb3 pnp kit first i think, then everything else is up for yall's thoughts, from the jb3 pnp what do you think i should do next, performance or aesthetic? i was thinking of tinting the windows but i don't know which %, then lowering it with H&r springs, but i don't know between sport and race springs, and then some sort of 19" wheels, but i don't know which color... i just don't know what looks good... i've never had a car before so this is all very very very new to me

If you are looking to get the V710's you do not need spacers since our wheels are made in fitments specifically for your car. Take a look at our site for a selection of wheels that fit your car. You can also PM me or email me and we can help you with any questions that you may have.

Dude, just fyi. The flame war is almost here.


PS...don't make several posts on different areas of the board saying you have different mods. You have already posted that you have a SSTT and that you know what brand of intake you want.

A simple search can reveal a lot.

This is my second thread, and my parents never bought me a car, that would be obnoxious.. Listen, im just trying to learn about the subculture modding you could say. And my budget is >5000... So aesthetically what should I go for with that money, most bang for my buck, for ex: I don't want one thing for 5k like rims, etc

You bought a car and are unable to drive it. Then you come here bragging about it asking for advice on mods while refusing to search for yourself to get an idea at least.


Guys, I bought a new plane. I don't have the ability to fly it but I'd like some ideas on where to take it.
