E90 White Front End - Need advice - Pic request

I cant stand how ugly my E90 front end is. M3 and coupes have it made!
Post up some Alpine White examples with the budget $$.

Maybe I should go back to stock front grill?
Black/white roundels?

Ambergones - White, Smoke, etched glass(cant find a pic)? $35
E90 Andy LCI conversion ~$1800 - ouch

Options considered so far
-Jlevi M3 bumper - White pic, side angles?
-M3 splitters wont fit this right, bc its not the same width?
-Mtech + 3D lip combo - $$? $1,000+
-Painted Splitters $$?
-Hartge lip $$?

Need to put together a total package, and budget.

Here is the ugly front end stock...blah

Clean car so far, I think the M3 bumper is the way to go for a more aggressive look. I also like the M-Sport bumper but prefer the M3 between the two.

dont go black and white roundels, car is not aggressive enough.

I'd say get a hartge front lip and etched glass ambergones or whatever resembles Euro style the most.

yea Ive seen all these pics before. Wanted to see some AW cars with these mods.
etched glass (no pics) or silver etched glass.
Not a fan of the M3 bumper on a silver car, maybe white would look better.

Splitters or the Hartge lip were considered but almost as expensive as the M3 bumper
