coupe or sedan? a lot of people get aero lips for their coupe and its a great buy especially if you can find it painted. m-tech bumpers are also nice. you can maybe also find some m3 replica bumpers for also for either coupe or sedan since they had a promotion a few months back, any questions just feel free to ask anyone on here and congrats

The 330i was only a sedan in USA. Welcome, I have the same car. Hit my garage up to see pictures of what I have installed to get ideas!

Welcome to the forum and get used to emptying your wallet. I bought my first this Time last year.

Some key words to put into the search button : OSS angel eyes, lips/soilers, mtec, LCI conversion
And since your in the race scene: active autowerke, pe exhaust, and the famous "buy a 335"

Good luck and happy modding :P

Welcome to the club and congrats! You bought a wonderful machine.

Be careful with aftermarket parts!!! There are a ton of cheap parts that have fitment and functional issues. Also, many vendors just care about selling items and quality is non-existent (nothing new here). Not many parts can come even close to OEM quality. Do your research and don't rush. It can cost you much more to fix damage from installing cheap parts than to buy quality ones in the first place. You get what you pay for!

As a sanity check, check out getbmwparts.com for pricing on quality OEM parts.

Some good aftermarket companies are: Dinan, Active Autowerke, Turner Motorsports, VAC, Tirerack, BMW USA.
