Question for my fellow TiAg owners

What are parts you can black out to enhance the overall look of the car? I just got my car a few days ago and am very new to the bmw scene (switching from a 2010 civic, which I also did black on silver on). I'm trying to achieve a clean black on silver theme and I'm just wondering what the best way to achieve this is. Exterior mod suggestions are also very welcome, I want my car to look fresh!

Thanks in advance for the help!

Matte or gloss black grills (kidney & lower) to start off with. I also recommend tinted side markers and/or tail lights. If you're not satisfied with your head lights like I was, you can also have OSS design mod your lights. If you want more contrast, you can opt for a gloss black roof, exhaust tips, window trim, wheels, and mirror covers. It all depends on if you want an aggressive look or classy/sport look.

I also have an e90 sedan. Mine has the sport package, so it has the black accent along the windows. I would do that if your doesnt have it. I have the windows tinted, and black kidney grill. Maybe the rims, but its played out, in my opinion. Simple is clean. Dont need to go too crazy.

I'd definitely go with black kidneys and black window trim, but i just got carbon fiber performance spoiler and it looks great if you'd consider CF.

I think the tiag e90 looks great with black accents. Here is a recent pic of mine with with my new m3 front. Not the best pic but it gives you idea. I also have a m3 spoiler on the back in gloss black. Considering wrapping the mirrors too. Last pic is before I put on my m3 front to give an idea.
