Cosmetic mods for 2010 E93

Hey everyone, I'm pretty new here so forgive me if I'm doing anything wrong, but I figured this would be the place to post if I want some ideas for my car. I just got a 2010 335i convertible and I love it, but I was wondering if anyone has some suggestions as far as aesthetic modifications go. I don't want to give it that extreme sporty look like an M3; I'd rather keep its classy look and just kind of personalize it, but I have few ideas on where to start. I've looked at angel eyes and I'm interested in getting white ones instead of the stock yellowish color they have and I also am thinking about getting the wheels a chrome finish. Any opinions or suggestions are appreciated, and please post a link if you're suggesting something specific.

In my opinion:

White angel eyes

Chrome wheels

LUX V3 LED angel eye replacement bulbs are the best for the money - cheaper ones look terrible, next best option is a lot more money, but full LED ring replacements looks sick but is upwards of $500.

Front bumper needs help on those, aero front lip is a nice add on for not a lot of money and just attaches over the lower part of the bumper - it is a BMW OEM part, but there are a lot of replicas out there for less money. Above that would be a full M-sport front bumper - more agressive and make the front look great - M3 rep bumper is the other option. M-sport rear bumper is a nice add on also as it give you a diffuser and there are a lot of diffuser options that improve the rear end look. I have an m3 replica lip on my trunk that looks nice and isn't too much, tried the performance spoiler, but it was too big and too much top down - looked good top up though!

Wheels make a huge difference, don't mind the 189 style on your car, but some m-sport or bmw performance wheels are a little nicer, or some traditional split spoke designs that everyone makes!

Good luck with it!

Rob

Do a search on here for a comparison of various halo rings-angel eyes whatever compared to the LCI. Kat and two other members performed that comparison.
Chrome wheels- negatory on that
Different wheels- certainly but some of the best looking are BBS but to each its own
Front end replacement meaning the facia to an M3 facia is not that expensive if you wish a more aggressive look...

Although upgrading the steering wheel probably isn't what you meant as far as aesthetic modifications, but I think it is often overlooked. I upgraded to the M-sport perf steering wheel, I absolutely love the feel...The steering wheel is your main interface with your car (with the gas and brake pedal in the mix as well), so I think it is money very well spent...Tischer has them for around 5 bills, and can be found cheaper on the 'fest in the classified section
