Start with the inexpensive items such as black kidney grills and black corner reflectors.

Aero front lip.


This is mine before I changed out the kidney grills and plasti-dipped the lower mesh.

If you don't want to black out the window trim, just replace the inner portion of the kidney grills with flat black. That gives a chrome surround to the black grill and matches nicely with the silver window trim.

Enjoy the car stock as long as you can - only change something if you think it could be improved!

I am a big fan of the BMW Performance line of parts for modding.

First address the go, then the show.

Tune
Intercooler
Suspension

Then cosmetics.

I bought the controller from Tischer BMW (Getbmwparts.com).

It's plug-n-play so no coding needed. You will need the updated console trim and the controller bracket to complete the installation. Not cheap, but awesome in convenience and looks.

Actually, they GO quite nicely out the door. Show is one of the cheapest forms of mods you can do to individualize the car to your taste...

Swap out for Glossy kidney grilles and painted front reflectors. You'll be under $200 in parts and should really enjoy the new, subtle change in her front end. That'll buy you more seat time while pondering performance mods.

I'm assuming it's tinted already. I can't see even an 80 year old granny not tinting a black on black

JB+ since its cheap and easy to remove before the dealer visits. Later you can move up to the big boy tunes.
