It isn't worth it. Check out our showroom section. You are about to get attacked by half the community. Don't turn your BMW into a Honda. These cars can look amazing with the right mods, but just as cheap with crappy ones. Take care of your maintenance first. This car will last you a very long time, with the proper care. Then worry about aesthetics later.

Just go to the Showroom section of this website and take a look at others who have modded their cars and see what you like/don't like.

Anything other then that will lead to arguments.

You've got a post facelift car, so the ZHP bumpers look better on it. Angel eyes, look at Umnitza.com, they are pretty nice. Just a bit on the expensive side. Throw some tints on it, if you haven't already. And finally, look into some nice wheels.

thanks for the great tips here appreciate it very much and yes it's a facelift with xenon lights so i guess i'll go with blue AEs and already got a heavy tint installed i got papers for them.

Unless it's legal where you live, I would avoid blue AE's. The 6000k temperature angel eyes already have a slight blueish tint to them, they look nice. No reason to get true blue.

undercar isn't that popular here in the states (it was 10-15 years ago) so you might not get too many opinions here (except ones hating it)

angel eyes... sky is the limit.

Let me guess you drive a Honda or Toyota for a few years with some shi**y mods on it and then someone handed this car down to you? Haha!

Personally not a big fan of under lights, but you can never really go wrong with the right set of angel eyes!

I notice your maintenance log in sig says you changed your oil with Mobil1 "fully synthetic" oil. Which oil exactly? 5W-30?

BTW, it's not truly "fully synthetic." Only Castrol 0W-30 is (as far as approved oil)
