Repair time - Need product advice and recommendations

I haven't posted here in probably over six months... but as it becomes time to replace a lot of things on my car, I find myself needing some recommendations as to what products to buy. I am on a limited budget, so I am not looking for anything high performance, just the best specific part for the price.

So, if anyone has recommendations, I need:

4 new brake rotors + pads

New tires (soon), don't need anything low profile but something that will last long

new control arms

weatherstripping all around

tail-lights

speakers (my weather stripping dry rotted and my back speakers got wet, make weird noises now)

honestly my electrical system is pretty much screwed and i've been looking to buy a new setup from someone on here, but don't know if I could handle the wiring.

Anyway, if you know of a specific make or seller for any of those parts you would recommend over another, let me know!

new control arms Febi or Lemfoerder ZHP arms

weatherstripping all around Depends on which parts but pretty sure your only option there is to with OE BMW parts.

tail-lights Classified section

speakers (my weather stripping dry rotted and my back speakers got wet, make weird noises now) Classified section again

honestly my electrical system is pretty much screwed and i've been looking to buy a new setup from someone on here, but don't know if I could handle the wiring. What part of the wiring harness is screwed and how so? Replacing the harness would be a massive job and you'd have to gut the interior

Anyway, if you know of a specific make or seller for any of those parts you would recommend over another, let me know!
