Welcome~

Angel Eyes are the circle lights around the main headlight/halogens.
They are also known as DDE's.. just search on those and you'l find heaps of results.
**Roll your mouse over those terms and you'l find a breif definition.**

It is normal when theres 4 Angel Eyes on the car, some people have 3....

Just kidding, id say start off by getting some clear turn signals and lower the car and if u still have some money left go ahead and throw some 19s on there. Also Angel eyes are a nice mod that every1 likes. Also depends on what you are trying to do, r u going for more of a race theme? or more of a classy type theme?
how fresh hmm.. never thought that far as far as theme goes.. I don't think i'm fast and furious.. maybe more sweet and sassy!! any sweet and sassy mods out there!?

Cool

I would recommend a clear lens package and color match your black body trim. This should cost you easily less than $700. I also would get wheels b4 you lower it. Being in California, I see both sides of the female car enthusiast. Nothing is hotter than a girl who has built a clean car. Simple can be respected just as much as a car that has every mod in the book. Racer chicks just seem like posers. If youre a racer then no offense.

NO NOOB, u ALWAYS get drop before rims, look at chase he regrets not droppin the car first, a car on stock springs with nice rims looks awful

Noob nothing guy. How dumb would you feel if you bought a setup that prohibited you from running a wheel that may be to large for your drop. I actually do suspension and rims within days of each other. Not everyone can afford to change parts 2-3 times. I'm on my third suspension set up in 1 year. Just sayin if you get the rims you want 1st then you know what kind of drop will fit without rubbing issues. I agree that a nice set of rims and no drop looks kind of silly. The ideal scenario would be rims and a drop 1st if you have the funds. If funds are too low then clears and color match. Angel eyes are on almost every car on this forum and while they look nice, I have strayed away from them. Unfortunately I have the cookie cutter 325i with the M3 front with CSL lid in silver and H&R coilovers. The only thing that seems to be unique about the car is the Breyton rims. Im not hatin' on anyone. Its just hard to differintiate from the crowd unless you spend some serious money or know some serious people. Either way everyone looks great.

IMO, a dumped car on 16" snowflakes is even more hideous. Save for both and transform your car. If you must do one at a time (like most mere mortals), I personally think rims first. Suspension is not for everyone...
