What should I do.

Looking to modify my 328i, any ideas anyone? It's a 99 I've been surfing the web but for some reason it's hard to find parts to modify my car.

Donked out ricecar.

OP: I don't know how you can't find anything to modify your E46. This is a crazy easy platform to modify!

Umnitza, ExtremeDimensions, Depo, ECSTuning, KOPerformance, Pelican Parts, Stealth Auto, just to name a few.

just buy a 400psi K&N supercharger so powerful that your intercooler does not need to be hooked up.

Yeah I know the thing is that my car is at 150,000 miles is it really worth to modify? Or would I just be wasting my time and money.

Rims: Modbargains.com

Fenders: Depends on what you want, google it
Front/rear bumper: Umnitza, ExtremeDimensions
Headlights: Depo
K&N Cold Air Intake: Google for best price, BMW Performance Intake is more suitable

Note: Items mentioned above may or may not be of good quality

I sure as hell wouldn't put Depo headlights on my car...

This is a question you have to answer for yourself, we can't answer it for you.

I would get Rimz, Tints, Muffler Delete, Clears, a madd drop, Piaa Fog Light bulbs, 8,000K hid kit from DDM, some super aggressive all season tires, depends on ur budget dude. Oh plastidip. tons of plastidip. U'll need em for ur valve covers esp at ur mileage. Is ur engine deaaaaked out yet or just stock/minimalist?

After having read fanatics for many years, I'm of the opinion that the best mod is the toughest one...the mind mod.

I've done it to mine, and I see a beautiful looking car, almost always made worse looking by people trying to make it look better.

Just paint your tires and sit back and watch all the attention you get. You know, I did this a year back or so and I still get 2-3 PMs every day from guys (one gal) asking how I did that? What I was thinking? Did I really? Sort of stuff.

YMMV

I'd recommend a 9,000k hid kit so his lights will match the color of his coolant when his ET blows!
