Unexperienced poll giver. And I just realized that means your a virgin.

Lighting is the most common mod on our cars bar none.

I am sorry that I did not include lighting, aka Angel Eyes, and grills and other things, I know hose are major improvements.

You made a thread expecting people to just start listing off their mods for lack of initiative on your part, what do you expect responses to be like? Do you really expect a great number of people to explain how their mods are working for them? Honestly... Browse the forum, look at people's cars and observe how they mod them. You search for the information you want, don't expect people to form and make a massive list for you. It's not a very hard concept to grasp.

People have already told you, angel eyes are probably the number one mod. Any lighting enhancement for the most part and you know why? They are cheap and universal. Not everyone can get zhp shift knobs and short shift kits but everyone here can get $25 smoked corners.

I am not looking for any certain list for myself. I though it would be interesting if people could post just so people have a general idea. I know how to use the search button, and I know exactlly what I am doing to my car, no outside influence is going to affect that. Wouldn't it be kind of interesting if there were just massive numbers posted of everyone that has gotten a certain area of parts done?

Seems like the majority of people get wheels. Are there really that many different types out there that people use to be origional?

Clutch delay valve?

Or does that not count because it doesn't draw mad attention.

ok you want to know what we all did? 19" hyperblack csl's with 235/35 all around. switched out sidelights and fronts signals to clears w/ chrome amber bulbs. switched out tail-lights to led 'globe' type (facelift) ones w/ red and clear. i WOULD lower the front but i've got a wife watching the wallet and the bimmer is really just my DD when it comes down to it. how's it working out for me? i wish i knew... haven't installed all of it yet!

The first thing I did was CAI, but thats because I found the one i wanted for extreemly cheap. I want to trade out my orange turn signals for clear ones.

same here, and 1 in every 30 cars are either ferraris, lambos, astons, maseratti, porche etc. you have to extensively modify a bmw to stand out here. I didnt mod the exterior, i like to blend in so i dont draw negative attention.
