Exterior mods! Help!

Hey guys I am rather new on here, I come from the audi/vw tuning i had a stage 2 a3 and used to be on vwvortex all the time. I want to introduce myself because I will be on here quite a lot! Here some pics of my car and any input on exterior mods will be nice! I will deff be looking to buy parts and sell parts on here.

I bought this late last year, but didn't drive it much because I put it away for the winter!

Im in the Nortwest suburbs

2007 e92
sports package
Nav
Florida car (never seen salt)
Black interior
60k miles

Current mods:

Powder coated black sport wheels
Black kidneys

Mods Waiting to be put on that I have:
jb4
Dci
Lightweight crank pulley(maybe)

ANY INPUT would be nice and im looking to change the wheels up as im not really a big fan of black and want to change up the exterior.

Thank!

Crappy pics in attachments!

Garage List
Black out the exterior window trim, get some LED angel eyes, painted front bumper reflectors, and a small M3 lip spoiler will put you at a great start cosmetically

You don't need HID angel eyes. I would say even just something as simple as LUX can make it look 5x better.

Other things to consider: Get a charge pipe and downpipe. Cosmetically, what was just listed before this post would do. People like to also get the LCI taillights, and M-sport front/rear bumper and side skirt. Get some coilovers or springs when you can.

That's about it for a start.

Looks great!

Great pick on the car and on avant garde m359s, lower the car immediately, I love eibach pro kits if you don't want to go with the coil over route

Lower the car on coilovers, colored reflectors, and wrap the trim black. I have an aero front lip in blue if you want to buy that and get it painted?

Nothing for the interior? How about doing carbon fiber rap on the aluminum trim or even gloss black. Just an idea, congrats on the new coupe!
