Just got 07 335 e92- open to suggestions

Just got my first BMW a month ago and have been extremely stoked on it. It's a CPO 2007 335 e92 in Black Sapphire with MT. Coming from a 99 Tacoma, it's a world of difference in all the best ways. Been signed up on the forums since purchasing, and just got familiar with the site and e92s in general... but now that I have some money saved up and slightly more knowledgeable, hopefully you'll be seeing and hearing from me a lot more.






So far all I've done is:

20% tint all around
matte black kidney grills
debadged
painted the silver mesh on the front bumper. (not shown)

I'd love to hear some recommendations on what you think my next moves should be. My next purchase is for sure to get angel eyes. I had ordered the Angel iBright V3 from EAS but were out of stock so I cancelled my order.. probably going to re-order them pending some sort of recommendation against them.

I want to give the car an agressive look bordering on "murdered" out, but at the same time I realize the importance of contrast. Thought about maybe doing the OSS Blackout on the headlights (I think it looks really bad ass, but don't want to be without my car for the week and a half+ turn around time), and maybe powder coating the rims black. I dunno, i'm open to all ideas and would be stoked to hear em. D

Thanks in advance for an suggestions and for all the invaluable info on these forums. Oh, and sorry if I make some write something completely illogical... i'm still acclimating to all the BMW technical goodness.

Cosmetic
1. Black Painted Reflectors ($70)
2. 19" Wheels to your liking
3. Sport Springs/Shocks or Coilovers

Performance (In this order)
1. Jb3
2. Dual Cone Intake
3. Front Mount Intercooler
4. Downpipes
5. Exhaust

That's how I would do it! Good luck! I wouldn't bother with angel eyes yet.

Sorry, should have clarified a little better.

For now I'm looking mostly aesthetic changes, along with some relatively modest priced performance upgrades. As much as I would love coilovers and downpipes/exhaust, thats going to take a little bit more saving. (The JB3 and dual cone intake are definitely on my radar though.)

Definitely tint your tail lamps 20% too. That and painted reflectors will make a huge difference for a small price tag

Eww tinted tails. This isn't an Japanese Import.

Go with OEM Blacklines and shadow line your trim.

I always thought dark cars look better with no-shadowline trim - especially with tint. No delineation of the windows without it.

definitely going to order the painted reflectors, those orange ones look like garbage.

I've also thought about blacking out the window trim.. but like 335e92tx said I think it makes for a nice divider between the window and car.. but also torn cuz it also looks a lot more simple and subdued.

and NOS is a a given haha
