Thanks lol.
Bumper: $280 shipped
Diffuser: $300 shipped
Tips: $80.00 shipped
Paint: $350
Exhaust: $250

These are rough estimates because I did all these mods a couple years ago.

My god, 2002GreenBMW.. BMW's aren't supposed to look like monster trucks lol. Lower dat bish!

Anyways, I'm thinking after I throw on wheels, a new bumper (still deciding between the M3 bumper I have or selling it and buying a CSL) and suspension, I'll pick up gloss black grills, smoked corners, chrome coated signal bulbs, smoked side markers, and I'll smoke the red portion of tails only.

I'll keep the chrome trim because I think it'd go with the hypersilver wheels.

Thoughts?

everything sounds good except for the smoked tailights. also I would vinyl the window trim with gloss black to compliment the grills and smoked look. chrome isn't bad with the look you currently have, but when everything is dark, it will look out of place. imo.

I'll look into it! I heard there's gloss black plasti-dip?

You think if I keep the tails the way they are, it'll look good even when everything else is dark?

I like the offset of silver/chrome around the windows. Unless you're looking to completely "Black Out" your car I think you could leave the Silver/Chrome since you're going with the Hyper Silver wheels. I'm leaving mine chrome and going with the GTR hood even though I can't get the grills in chrome once I change it. I do have the smoked tails, but they are lightly smoked.

Agreed I've mostly blacked out but looks nice with chrome kidneys and rims!

Gawd this color is achingly attractive. Why couldn't this be a color on the M3s?
