328xi upgrades

Hey, first time posting...
I got an 07' 328xi back in may, im the second owner, and the car is bone stock right now. I am thinking of putting some money into it...

My thoughts are headlight upgrade..i have oem lights all the way around..

or performance... dont know too much about performance upgrades on bmws, but do know exhausts work pretty well for hp boosts...

what are your thoughts/ suggestions about cosmetic or performance upgrades?

sorry for being a bimmer new-b but i love the car already

Here is what I would recommend based on what I have experienced.

1st: Get some 18" wheels with non Run-flats. XI's are not practical to lower and will look bad with 19's.
2nd: Black Line tail lights. your car will instantly look better.
3rd: Exhaust preferably BMW PE, but the new AA Axel-back would be good to for a more affordable option. An Exhaust will make you appreciate the fact you own a BMW every time you start it up 100%.
4th: BMS PBX. Best Mod for the $. On setting #3 it feels like a sports car! Throttle response is much better, and paired with an exhaust it is a noticeable difference in acceleration.
If you have a 6MT, the very 1st thing I would do is get a ported CDV, or bypass the CDV altogether, shifts will be WAY smother!
Aside from that just make it look how you want and keep it tasteful.
