Mods? (Modifications, not moderators)

Since getting my 328i in early October last year, I have had a few add-ons installed.

- 5% limo tint all around
- HID headlights w' angel eyes
- corner parking lights disabled, replaced with LED turn signals
- fender mounted LED turn signals
- custom CD/USB stereo
- customized hood badge
- CompuStar alarm system w' remote door unlocks

on order

- Projector fog lights
- red smoke LED tail lights

and came with

- cold air induction with K&N conical filter
- lowered front end
- M3 Body kit (bumpers, skirts, mirrors)

Near-future plans include summer rims/tires, chip/software for performance enhancement, and maybe some engine component swaps for more ponies and I also want to remove the ski-bag, and replace it with a subwoofer for better sound quality..

What else (other than stickers and a spoiler) can be done to a BMW to customize/modify it to make it stand out?

Keep it original. Don't ask other people what to do. It's your car not theirs

I'm just wondering what my options are so I can decide what else I might like to do to it to make it "mine".

Oh is that it? Phew. I though that it's cuz they wanted an ass-whuppin'.

What's wrong with LED's?? At least it's not NOS stickers and neon glow in the cockpit.

The LED's are just easier to see. Have I commited some kind of Fast & Furious feux pas?

Install some air shocks so you can make the car jump as you drive it down the street, and a hood scoop.

In all honesty, its up to you what you put in it. Get neon lights on the bottom for all I care. As long as you like it.

To actually put in some useful ideas though, maybe start thinking about something like a front strut brace and coilovers (I dunno how your car is lowered on the front, but coilovers are just so cool).

But Pink Steelies would be cool as well. hahaha

Apparently strut bars don't really do anything for e36's as they're already tight enough up there.
