What mods should I do? New owner!

Hey guys, I'm almost positive I'll be the proud owner of a 92 318i tomorrow. It's forest green, and in pristine condition with only 118,000 miles. I am so excited to check it out and put a down payment on the car to secure it.

He's only asking 2,100 and is the second owner! I was wondering if you guys could tell me some inexpensive mods I could do. I want to get nice bmw rims and headlights. Any suggestions for quality headlights that support HIDs?

What mods do you guys suggest?

My brother has a 96 318i w/ over 205,000 miles, such a great car! I am pumped. You'll be seeing alot of me, thanks in advance.

You can get halo type head lights like the new bimmers that will support HID

Welcome to the board

My previous BMW was a 93 318i (Green on tan leather). I still miss her. The easiest mod you can do is change the air filter to a high flow filter. It involves removing the stock air box and replacing with a intake system with a filter. To compliment the that, an exhaust upgrade would do the trick. But if you want real Horse Power that you can feel, I strongly suggest that you change your ECU. When I changed mines, I felt the difference in HP right away.

For headlights from best to worst.
