To begin with, I have a BMW 325i. Black outside black inside. The car looks exactly like this (Except black): http://www.gtauto.com/files/bmw/125.jpg
As you can see, I installed no body kits (I regret it) or anything extra.
About 6 months ago I installed an Alpine motorized in-dash LCD screen. i love it, but now I'm off to exterior modifications.
If anyone has any experience with these sort of changes please offer your advice =) I welcome any criticism! Most of the parts/ideas came to this MIT guy that pretty much rebuilt his 323i. Here's the site: http://e46.mit.edu/
The end result of my car that I'm looking for is VERY similar to his. I'm going to get my windows tinted (Already should've done that). Plus, the FRONT LEFT part of my car (hood + bumper) is a tad tended due to a small collision. The dent can't be seen from far away and is barely noticeable. The only problem is if you look at the car from the left side it seems like i purposely popped the hood. Ima get that fix...does anyone know how much (give or take) it would cost me?
Now to the changes.
1)Front bumper. I'd like to install an M3-replica bumper. It doesn't have to be exactly the same, but I'm looking for something along the lines of: http://e46.mit.edu/BMW_Replica_M3_Front_Bumper.htm
Do any of you recommend any other bumper? I'm open to all opinions.
2)Rims...Really, I haven't decided on any. I'd like an 18/19 inch rim tho. What's your preference?
3)Wings. Possible top wing: http://e46.mit.edu/Hamann_Replica_Roof_Spoiler.htm
and maybe trunk spoilers: http://e46.mit.edu/BMW_OEM_Aero_Kit_Trunk_Wing.htm
4)Lights: Some sort of angel/demon eyes. Haven't yet decided. I can install those myself, so it's not an issue.
5)Rear bumper...same deal as front bumper. Looking for alternatives, around the style of: http://e46.mit.edu/Rieger_Rear_Bumper.htm
To sum things up, the overall style that im lookin for looks like these 2 pictures: http://e46.mit.edu/Originals/Hamann_Replic...ts/IMG_0214.JPG http://e46.mit.edu/Originals/Hamann_Replic...ts/IMG_0656.JPG
I'll greatly appreciate any advice. What parts are good for this sort of modification? How much do you think it would cost? Good idea?
Thanks for everyone's time,
