Hi everyone!
I'm new to this forum. I live on the Sugar Land side of town. I have a stock 2009 328i in Space Gray with Coral Red interior and Sport package. I finally have some free time for some cosmetic mods so I'm looking through forums for ideas. I'm thinking about doing the front end first and replacing the reflectors with body colored ones and adding a front bumper lip. Also, replacing the chrome grill with the factory black one to match the shadowline window trim. Does that seem like a good start? Any advice or tips?
Thanks,
GQ

PS I have four more posts before I start nagging people with PMs about where and how much they got their stuff for haha

Did you end up going with this body shop? I'm also in need of getting a front bumper lip painted and looking for the best deal and quality.

if you see a bone stock looking black 335 with blacked out badges, that's me. if you see a silver steel SRT8 with 22" Torque Thurst II's and an exhaust that sounds like babies burning in hell, that's my wife HAHA !!!!

16"sub is a lot but i shouldn't be talking. i just got done putting in 2 12" cvr kickers with a memphis class d amp (1000watt). i went big with one. what are you looking for out of ur sub exactly? how much are you willing to spend?

Here's a link to what I did. I don't know how much trunk room you're willing to loose though. I measured my luggage before I designed it and it fits. (added that part for all the "you have no trunk" haters.)

Who makes a 16" sub? I have never heard of that size... JL makes some non-standard diameters, but I dont think in a 16".
