i just got a 2001 silver 325 ci. my first bimmer. and i love it. before i had a 94 300zx, all fixed up. but recently totaled it. now i was a memeber of a z forum, and new alot abou the car. but i donr know anything about this car. so i had a few q's

what type of problems should i look out for, or regular things i should do?
scheduled mnt. that is very impt?
what are the best places to get aftermarket parts for this car? antthing, from cleared lights, performance parts, interior.(real carbon fiber trim) body kits. etc. ?
theres alot id like to do to it(like my z) but want to know the best stuff. is ebay an ok, place to get parts?
what are these angel eyes i keep seeing?
any cleared corners that are as clear as the headlights themselves?
any other things i should know or you would like to tell/teach would be great. like i said new to the bimmer thing. but i like it.

for the clear sides check out ebay. it's cheap and my new ones were higher quality than oem! as for front corners and tails, i'd stay away from ebay.
