Question What else would you recommend?

Hey guys,

So I have done the following to my car (2007 E93 328, didnt buy it for performance) and was wondering what else you guys recommend?

* Replaced Chrome Kidney Grills with Matte Black
* Replaced Light bulbs with Plasma GP Thunder 6500k's
* Replaced Fog Lights with GP Thunder 8500k's
* Replaced Angel eyes with Lux H8 v3 Angel Eyes
* Replaced Orange front reflectors with Smoked Reflectors
* Replaced Turn Signals with Bright White Error free LED's
* Replaced Yellow Turn signal Sidemarkers with Bright White Error free LED's*
* Replaced all interior, doors, trunk and license plate lights with Bright White Error Free LED's from HPB
* Removed front license Plate and mount
* Removed 328i Badge (for cleaner look)
* Tinted side windows and rear windshield (35%)
* Had BMW replace Beige Floor mats with brand new BMW Black Floor mats (I like the look better, overall better contrast in the car with the beige leather interior)
* Black Carbon Fiber Steering wheel roundel

Note:
* Putting spacers on today to help with the stance. (https://www.sonicms.net/index.php?ro...product_id=443
* Going with ST Coilovers in May
* Probably changing out the wheels and tires as soon as the runflats wear down.
* Ordered a dice mediabridge (I have a non iDrive 328i)
* BMW Aero kit (front bumper lip) is being painted (Getting installed next week)
* MTech Sideskirts are being painted (Getting installed next week)

Thanks so much in advance! Appreciate it!

Sounds like you've done quite a bit and have a little more planned. Why not get the car breathing better with a PE and PI. It'll help with sound, performance and milage (and underhood will look nicer with the PI).

Thanks and sorry for not adding the link sooner. I'm fairly new to all this so I appreciate everyone's patience.

Yep, as I stated above I'll definitely do that when my rft's wear down. They are brand new at the moment

But thanks.

Here's the PE

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=671158

I think it would be a nice upgrade to your E93 because you'll be able to listen to it with top down!

Here's a pic of the PI. It adds a nice touch to the engine bay IMO. Plus it gives a bit of a power bump.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ormance+intake

Only other thing I would suggest that isn't on your list is a lip spoiler. I think it would add a nice touch to the rear-end.

Thanks for the links! I'll take a look!

Yes! Completely agree! I've seen a bunch of Lip Spoilers on eBay but so many to choose from how do you know who's reputable? That makes good quality spoilers? Everyone nowadays has 98-99% rating.

Put the spacers on yesterday! Front looks amazing thought they could have gone closer to the fender at the back though, but what do I know, I'm no expert.

The reason they say is due to rub when we lower her next month so that makes sense.

Overall love the new stance and feels a little more stable on the road wasn't expecting that.

What about the BMW performance spoiler? Also check out the vendor section on here, you might stumble upon something you like.

Nice thanks I'll give that a look. I do like the look of the BMW Performance spoiler.
