06'E90 upgrades any cheap?

Hi there,
I drive a 06 E90, 4d sport, and looking for visual upgrades that enhance the way the car looks w/o cheapening it, does anyone know of a reputable website that sells E90 parts at a fair price, i just got a quote to have my kidney grill blacked out they want 540 USD and thats kinda crazy!
Btw tell me if you like the pic of my e90

+1 I bought matte black grilles for about $50 on this forum.

Blacklines are a good way to start, about $200-240. Almost always somebody selling in the FS section.

If you have the $$$ Mtech kit is a good idea, definitely makes the car look more aggressive

Take out the 0 and you will have a realistic price for that mod.

OP, just buy the matte black grille from JLeviSW. Pretty much most of the vendors on this site are great.

heres what i did this summer

off mforce: Splitters, m3 spoiler (all painted), led license plate lights, shipped to canada for 340$.

off e92-lighting: super white 4350 drl bulbs + foglights - bout 60$ shipped

off namotorsports: lux 5.1 angel eye rings - 220$ shipped

off the forum classifieds: blacklines for 200$

Pre cut tints to hide the amber off longtran (forum member): about 40$ shipped

im gonna have a friend paint my grills monaco blue to match the car rather then get a new black grill.

thats it, suspension (maybe) and rims for next year. Honestly all those mods still dont add up to the impact a new set of rims would have, so u might wanna go that route first. I had a 1k budget for this year, came close to it.

cheap/easy modes would be, like everyone else has already said, Grilles (not for 540!!!) and blacklines.<-- must have on an e90.

but when you wanna fork out the dough you can start looking into body kits and such. (M3 Rep, MTech etc.)
