I just picked up a E92 Xdrive 6MT.

Mods that I ordered day 1:

1) ZHP weighted shift knob
2) Painted reflector
3) Black Kidney Grill
4) Clutch Stop

Then I will get Cobb AP, then springs/coilovers, then wheels.


I've seen some nice looking front lips/fascias. What are some cheap bolt on (tape on) fascias that look nice? I have a hard time finding aftermarket parts for the E92. I am coming from a 2008 Mustang GT. With mustangs there are a ton of distributors with huge inventories. With the E92 it seems everything is piecemeal and spread out amongst a large number of vendors.

First Mod: KW V3's

I got coilovers first for my previous car as well. I think coilovers are one of the most significant mods you can do in terms of handling performance and looks.

I was thinking today how I got into modding and such and I think it all started when I got the car I totally hated the tail lights so I did some searching and found a pair of LED Blacklines which will soon be LCI converted. And I guess from there I saw some pictures of other cars similar to mine and found myself getting lips, grills, tints, wheels, etc. I now have a list of exactly what I want to do as long as I have this car.

So my question is what was your first mod and what got you into modding? Post up pics of your cars before and present.

I'll start..I found a couple of pics from before.

Before:



How it sits as of a few weeks ago except now it has an M3 Trunk Lip:




This month I'll be installing KW V1s.
All that I've done to it in the past year are in order:
Blackline LED Taillights, AE + fog bulbs (to be replaced soon), Grills, Shadowline Trim, Wheels + Tires, Remus Powersound, Resonator delete, Window + Trunk Lip, Tint, K&N Drop-In.

SO go ahead and post before and after, first mod, last mods, future mods if you like...

EDIT! :

NOW After KW V1's

Love the look of the new rims

OK, these mods are really radical so far.

First Mod: OEM Black Performance Grilles (these were in the box in the trunk at delivery - installed them first thing when I arrived home)
Second Mod: OEM Slimline Steel Black License Plate Frame
Next Mod: Contemplating several... BMW 313 wheels (18), Dinan Stage 1 or Stage 2 Suspension, others
