Congrats! She's a beauty. It's a solid car. You'll get a lot of good miles out of here. Staggered sports come summer will look great.

Very nice.Congrats

Well its up to you how you want to mod it, but i would

Lower it
Change gloss black kidney grills.
Change that orange reflector on fender to body color.
De-badge it
Find some nice summer wheels.
Add some splitters to front bumper. http://www.e92-lighting.com/images/lcispiltter8.jpg
And maybe some kind off spoiler to trunk.

i would do tints, grills, and side reflectors first since its cheap to do. IMOP i'd buy wheels after february, no more snow by then. Also I would get those Angel Eyes customized.

ps.
Very nice car!!

congrats, MB is a veryyy cool color and as far as mods go i think that you should first start with matte black grills, then a set of wheels, a drop and color-matched reflectors, good luck on the modding and keep us posted!

Congrats and welcome!

First mod in the spring should be wheels and tires. Go for some nice light weight 18x8.5" square and get some nice meaty tires - like 255/35 all the way around. With the 328, light wheels will make a performance difference.

That's my favorite exterior color. Enjoy the drive!

The best peformance mod for the money is an Active Autowerke tune. It's a mail order tune that you can either install yourself by shipping them your engine control computer or by visiting a local installer. If you go the installer route, the process usually takes 3 hours or so.
