New BMW, New Member!

Hello, just recently bought a 2008 BMW 328I sport with 65,000 miles, obviously, I love it! I have had BMWs in the past but never a 3 series. As of now I have simply added the black grilles and debadge the rear end of the model numbers. Future plans are to tint the windows, and add the xenon blue angel eyes of the newer models. However, I am posting to ask suggestions mainly, so please feel free to comment. Thanks for your time!

I was also planning on adding yellow tinted bulbs to the fog lights.

Looks very clean. And got oem xenon(a must). If you want it to sound better get an exhaust like BMW PE or AA Signature(love it). Black out tail lights and headlights if you into that... Maybe wheels and a rear spoiler, a tune like AA. Enjoy it. 👍

Extended warranty is a must. Get mod ever!

Congrats on your ride, here's a list of some basic (cheaper) mods you can start with:
  • Blacklines
  • Smoked Side Markers
  • a DROP
  • Bigger Rims / Spacers

Enjoy the Ride

Thanks for all the feedback! I was thinking about doing the oem BMW blackline taillights? As far as an extended warranty, what do you suggest?

Hey bud, those tail laps are cool especially on a jet black car. For extended warranty you can check out any local shop that offers them
or research it online.

Congrats and welcome!

As for mods, I would start with the big stuff like M Sport bumpers, wheels, coil overs and blacklines before getting into little things IMO.

The car is a 6 speed manual and is fairly quick as is with its 230 hp. What would you guys recommend to increase the power up to around 250 hp with spending a ton of cash?

Not at all. Save your money for cosmetic mods.

off to a great start with the grilles

as far as more mods, I'd go with blacklines, new wheels, a drop, spacers, and a spoiler. M-sport (front and rear) is also a huge upgrade, but will cost a lot.

Looks good, though. Congrats and welcome to the forum!

congrats on the ride and the fact that you said blacklines makes me have faith in your modding, straight up blacked out stock tails are a no no

LOL, I do my research before swapping out oem parts for anything aftermarket on vehicles such as BMWs. I found a BMW dealership eBay site that was selling the oem blacklines for under $400.
