I finally got some new wheels on my 06 325i. I ended up getting 19" Avant Garde M310's with a staggered fitment, 9.5 in the back and 8.5 in the front.

The only other mod i've done is halo's and I want some opinions on what mod i should do next? i've been considering getting an m3 replica front bumper or maybe a new exhaust system. Please help me out and let me know what you think!

If you haven't yet, we would all probably agree a nice drop would compliment the wheels.

Look into some springs and shocks or a nice set of coilovers. Probably the best thing to do.

How much does that normally cost? Where is the best place to get this done and what do I need to buy?

I just got me a set of ST v1 from Tiago@VRSF, check him out, very low priced compared to others.

I just looked at the VRSF website and I couldn't find any under my model, do you think they would still work even though they aren't specific to my model?

Also, are coil overs better than just getting lower springs? What are the disadvantages to using springs as I can see that they are much cheaper than coil overs.
