I guess my questions boil down to:

1) Will 18s look good without the sport package?

2) Do slightly wider tires add to the appearance?

3) What is the most economical way to get the bumper that the 335i is using from the OP?

4) What is the typical cost to upgrade to LED Halo lights?
I'll give this a shot as a former "modder" (E39, E46 M3):
1. Of course a "plus" tire fitment (18") will add to the awesome look of your car.
2. An 18" tire option will be lower profile and wider "look."
3. Best to search other web sites for this info. There are many. This is slippery slope area unless you do your homework well and find a reliable company. Caution for poor fitting...don't go with anything made in China!
4. Best to start searching for BMW aftermarket lighting...many sites. Umnitza may be a good place to start. Automotive lighting offerings are rife with cheap Chinese careful.

You didn't mention wheels, but stay away from cheap cast wheels. Forged construction process is the best and most expensive...YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. The wheels should be able to accommodate your TPMS sensors. I recommend The Tire Rack.

Others may chime in.
