New to the Forum!!!But long term member!

I recently traded in the 2006 750i I had for a 2009 550i and it is loaded with the "M-sport" option, lowered stance, staggered wheel option, logic 7, cold weather pkg, love the 172 wheels. She is carbon black with Cream Beige Dakota leather, Navigation, Comfort Access, Comfort seats and this aerodynamic package. Don't worry photos are forth coming she is getting window tint at the moment.

Question, what after market modifications should I look at to enhance the look and the performance of this little beast. Any suggestions for the:

Angel Eyes/Halos (I want the brightest currently available)

Exhaust (I have heard of RPI, Dinan and there was one the began with an "M")

Ipod connector (I see an AUX tab on the Navi screen and see a plug in in the center console. Do I need to purchase cable or entire assembly to access my files on my ipod?)

Clear Bra (with the stance of the beast sitting lower would it be smart investment to protect the paint?)

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. I was a member of the 7 forum for a couple of years and looking forward to the wealth of information in this forum as well.
