Just Bought a 2006 SG BMW 330i

Just got my first BMW! Sparkling Graphite 330i 6-speed with sports, cold weather and premium package. Haven't had a chance to take it outside to take some nice pics due to the weather, but here are some dealer pictures.

I have been doing lots of research on the forum looking for mods that really really enhance the visual appeal of the car. Below is a list of mods in the order I am thinking of getting. Any advice people can give would be greatly appreciated.

20-25% Tint - Anyone know the best place for a balance between quality and price in the seattle area.
Grill - Matte Black, Carbon Fiber or Gunmetal?
ZHP Alacantera ZHP Knob - Does the knob itself reduce the throw significantly?
Amber Covers - Debating between Carbon Fiber or Gun smoke
Smoked Blacklines - Are LED blacklines reliable?
Emblems - Carbon Fiber or Black/White

In the future would want to change the exterior window trim to match the front grill. Anyone know where the best place to do this would be?

Any other suggestions to complete the look?

Thanks for all the help. Spent a while looking for this car, so I am very excited about the purchase and want to starting modding (in a classy way of course) as soon as possible.

Ask for Jay and tell him Derrick with the black 335i sent you

they will do it significantly cheaper than accutint... ive taken 5+ cars there and not a single issue and they back up there work with no hassles! they do not offer ceramic tint however. i have gone with the normal tint for many many years and i love it. ceramic tint from accutint will be in the 5-6 hundred region but if you want it its there.
