if your exhaust has the butterfly valve you can do the golf tee mod for a little more aggressive note. you can plastidip you grills for the black grill look. I'm about to plasti dip my grills and window trim to give it a little more aggressive look. It really depends on what you want to change. Angel eyes look pretty nice too.

If you have a manual the best mods you can do are a shorter shifter, weighted shift knob, and clutch stop.

my friend has the 325 with the butterfly valve and we took his hose off and it gave it a great sound. my car unfortunately doesn't have that. I've just been looking around cause my car needs no mechanical work whatsoever so I've just been looking for some stuff to mess around with

Like taylor193 said a short shifter is a great mod. When I'm at that point I tend to get under the car and detail everything, take the wheels off and clean the wells and stuff like that. Detail the engine bay. I'm kinda OCD when it comes to my car. ( the wifes car is super dirty but I can't bring myself to do the same to hers) Whats your definition of cheap? There is a lot of cool stuff out there.

If you go onto the m3 forums there is a huge thread with cheap mods. Obviously some only apply to m3's but a lot are for both cars and when i say there is a lot i mean there are a lot.
