Why don't you bank the money, drive the car for a few months, and then ask yourself if it NEEDS an upgrade. Do you really want to spend your $$$ on things some stranger on a car forum tells you to buy?

But really I don't know what it looks like but some very basic cosmetics I would suggest to anyone would be painted reflectors, black shadowline window trim, and black grilles to start. Then again, maybe you have them already.

hmmm. I would be in the jb4 boat, but before you do take the time to "get used" to your car. Wait til you "get used" to the power of the 335i and then see what a difference the tune makes.

Or just tint. Get the 3M crystalline tint, its twice as much as regular tint but considerably more durable and blocks virtually all UV/IR radiation even without being limo dark. This means a much cooler car and your interior will look much better for much longer. Spend the change on the sun visor.
