E93 mods & body

Hey you guys so I am a kid in highschool and I've had a 2011 BMW e93 for about 5 months now and I wanted to do some modding or adding stuff to the body. It's a 328i unfortunately, and I was wondering if you guys what mods I can do to bump up the performance. Also if you guys can help me look for an m sport bumper w/ fog lights. The color is Jet Black thanks

For a 328i, theres not much performance mods you can do. I've heard of a AA tune for the 328i, but you'll only squeeze out 10-15whp?


Btw, You got balls coming into this forum starting out your statement that you're in hs lol. you're lucky. Be grateful for what you have I didn't get a car until i was in second year in college, and even then it was a beater Lexus es300 with over 150k miles on it.

I'll look into that AA tune! & yes I am so grateful and fortunate and blessed to have what I have. I kind of came out sounding spoiled, i actually work a lot of times after school and I paid for almost half of this car while my parents paid the other half as a gift for my 16th birthday! I love this car haha ! I understand haha

You can find some bumpers on ebay used, or order a new from **********s.

Welcome to the forum, don't let these old farts hate on you :P

Words of someone that sounds like a brat... Just saying.. C'mon man, you're a kid in high school, driving a newer BMW. Don't talk like it's one of the worse cars you can own. Anyway, welcome to the forum! You can find the things you are asking for fairly easy. Do a quick google search, ebay has a ton, and craigslist also has a bunch of bumpers that i've seen for sale.

**********s.com , ECStuning, turnermotorsports, bmwparts.com , and your local bmw dealer, just to name a few off the top of my head.

XSthethicmotorsports.com, JGmods. There's plenty man just do a search for more than 2 minutes and you'll come up with plenty of companies to buy from.

I recommend pulling the engine, tearing it down and rebuilding it. Pull out the dashboard and re-upholster it. Swap out the transmission. Take off all the trim and bumpers, then paint the car.

lol, that's the kind of stuff I was doing at 16. I'm sure you can imagine these were not *nice* cars. But I LOVED them!

Stay in school. Eat your vegetables.

mod bargains is a great place to shop. They are in the oc.

The 328 is awesome. I had one. Engine is smooth. Has plenty of power. Not a ton but its not a slouch.

I dont hate on you for having loaded parents. Just take care of the car.

Rich people problems.

OP, sorry but you're just an easy target. I somewhat commend you for paying half of the car (must be getting a fat allowance from mowing the lawn) but do a little research with the search function in this forum because there are a lot of posts pertaining to your question. Start off with the AA tune and a set of Michelin PSS tires (if you still have RFT's) for a performance boost. Good luck.

Don't pay attention to the hate. Jealousy is a stinky cologne. Enjoy it and get some girls.

I wish I got paid for mowing lawns. I've been saving up since I was like 12/13 years old Believe it or not. My dad got me a job at unloading trucks etc. I've been working for 3 years now saving every dime. I also got side jobs sometimes changing my neighbors oil. But I am looking into the AA tune ! Thank you haha
