Hey guys, Im new to this forum, used to drive a 2003 c230 brabus kompressor, and made the switch over to a bimmer and ive been loving it. Im sure all of you know a hella lot more about bimmers than I do, so im going to post a super noob question here.

What mods can I do other than the obvious "rims" or "springs" to make my 5 series look nicer? i.e. painting the grille, decklid spoiler etc and would any of you happen to have pics of nicely done up 5's?

thanks.

Well other then the rims and springs you should most DEFINITELY get the M5 bumpers (front/back). Then Tints...etc

Also wanted to change the angel eye lights to a brighter white as well, do you know where I can get this sort of work done and how much it'll run me?

As for the bumpers, look around kijiji.ca or ebay. If you have an unlimited budget BMW dealership definitely. As for the lights, im not too sure but there are guys on the forum here that actually intall HID kits. Maybe they can help you out.

I would also get a performance break kit. Slotted and drilled. Big break kit. High quality one. Make it look sexy.

I have been looking desperately on kijiji and craigslist and havnt had much luck. I was also tryn to look around the classified section on this forum but didnt have much luck finding parts for the e60 either lol hopefully someone will part out their 5 soon so i can pick it all up lol

The new 5's won't be parted out anytime soon. I haven't seem a single e60 part on here yet. You're best bet is going to bmw for oem parts. Or search ebay for after market parts. I'm sure you'll come across oem's on ebay, but m5 oem bumps i doubt.

I would love to find a replica actually, looks the same, fitment might not be the best, but it'll do for a leased car lol

just out of curiosity if its a lease how come you didn't spring for a 530i or a 550?

550 = monster I sat in one and it just consumed me

Go to bimmerforums.com and check the classfieds there. It is a bigger bmw community and guys tend to sell parts more often then here.

Porksoda what wheels are those???

Congrats on the move. It's certainly a great upgrade from the C230
