This is my First BMW Need Ideas for cosmetic mods

Just bought my first bmw . e36 318is . . .. ( I know ) had quite a few speeding tickets in my other car so I wanted to keep it low profile . I love the looks of the 318 but Its just begging for some cosmetic modifications. Its basically stock right now , I feel like its lowered slightly from the previous owner when i compare it to my brother in laws 330 but im not sure !

What type of modifications would you suggest to my 1994 mauritsblau blue coupe?

shocks springs ? tints ? You guys get pretty creative with your cars , but I dont know where to start with the bmw. Its not a Honda or Acura !

I love the look of the e36 m3 but not necessarily wanting the front bumper I see everyone put on their cars.

I guess I just want to know some good brands and places to get parts on a
budget. my car has potential , just dont know where to start!!

Getting all the maintenance issues straightened out first, tune-up, brakes, cooling system, etc.

Lol, seriously, JBG! Personally, I also like the look of stock. The only thing different about mine is the tinted windows. Everyone has their personal taste, though. You know? I don't like the stuff that tries to make it look like something it's not. I guess that's the most basic way to say it. If you have a luxury junk yard, do some checking out there. Shoot, you can even check some online and have them ship it. Could you post some pics?

Yeah.......BB, I guess I over did it, but you could always bookmark them (links).........& have them for reference later........
as for the stock look, I will agree, I do like the stock look also......but like to enhance it a little, with subtle mods & upgrades.......not over doing it! I think when it's over done & if not done right, it will look Ricey!

Wow! Bro thanks for all of the help ! I got the vibration thing figured out it was indeed my motor mount that was messed up. Shouldn't have to go far with all those links you posted lol. is there any specific things I should check out under the hood before I really start driving it? My brother just got his e46 and wants to do some filming so I need to get this car rollin.

And I came out of an accord I'm not going ricey ... Trust that!
