2011 BMW 328i Sedan - UPGRADE HELP?

Hello Bimmerfest members! I am new here, looking for some upgrade help.

Looking to purchase a 2011 BMW 328i Sedan with the following features:

Exterior Color: White
Drivetrain: Automatic
Sports Package

Then, I want to purchase the following aftermarket parts:

Cosmetic (listed in order of addition):

Lux H8 High-intensity discharge lamps - $245
19" BBS CH-R Wheel Set (Black) - $2760
Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Tires (Set of 4) - $1500
Black Center Grills - $72
SPEC D Smoked LED Tail Lights - $224
35% tint (all-around) - $???

Performance (listed in order of addition):

BMW Performance Exhaust System - $1160
Injen SP Series Short Ram Intake - $310
BMS Powerbox Performance Chip - $280
Stage 1 Suspension System - $1700


Liquid Resin Headlight Polish & Restoration Kit - $137

TOTAL: $3000

Suggestions for these upgrades?

HID Upgrade
M3 lip spoiler
Set of winter tires
E90 Front Lip


1) Are these the best upgrades out there? If not, which upgrades are better and why?
2) Will I need wheel spacers?
3) What is a coilover? Same as Stage 1 suspension system?


P.S.: I am still in college, and new to car upgrades, so please don't insult my lack of knowledge. I'll get there _a_

Sorry, I am confused. Is the 3K how much you have to spend on mods? The list you put up has in excess of 3K listed.

On the 328i, I would stick with more cosmetic things and maybe the exhaust if you want noise. The performance parts are not really a good "bang for your buck" to to very marginal gains, if any.
