That's better!

First, I really like the colour.

Front turn signal and side markers - go clear or smoked depending on the look you want. If you want a balck trim kind of look, get black kidney grills or Plasti-dip the ones you have (have to remove and take them apart to paint tnem). Gives the car a much up-dated and stealthy/aggressive look.

K &N filters are know to cause problems with the Mass Air Flow sensors on our cars. They gum up the resistor and cause all kinds of operational problems. I would revert back to the OE intake as it has been shown to be as good as it gets. Even the BMW Performance intake ($800) only adds 2-3 HP!!

If you have more $$$, an m-tech or M3 bumper would really dress up the front but to get it painted right, you are looking at a few hunderd bucks.

How muc do you want to spend and what kind of theme are you after?

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
