Just bought 2006 525i

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.

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.

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???
