How do these mods sound.....?

Hey everyone, so I currently own a 2013 328xi m-sport and i love it. Its alpine white with coral red interior. So I wanted to share my plans on this car with you guys and feedbacks/suggestions are appreciated.

Right now its the stock car but I plan on modding it very soon.
- Tinting the windows (20%)
- IND front reflectors
- M performance kidney grills
- Lowering it with xDrive springs when its released
- New rims (still deciding)


So it will look pretty clean and sharp. Any other suggestions & feedbacks are highly appreciated. THANKS

Agree. Nothing listed above is appealing to me either.

You might consider the M Performance mats if you're interested in gilding the lily a bit, but I'm not certain they'd look good in a white car.

Not understanding some of the responses here. I think your mods sound subtle but will make the car unique. Go for it!

I think they sound great. I always found at least for me, I like to do cosmetic stuff first then move on to performance after really getting a grasp for how the car is stock. Just my 2 cents.

Or it could just be that he's happy with the car's performance already and isn't planning on racing on a pro circuit with it. I could be wrong though.

Yeah guys, I'm not going to go to a track and race with this car or anything. Im happy with the way my engine is and maybe later when I have a little extra cash I will change the exhaust, but right now I'm going for cosmetic first.

I'd at least pick up the BMS Stage 1 Tune. You might be happy now, but you'll be happier later. It's such a minor price to pay for such a large gain.

I have it on my car right now. The pickup at the low end is about the same, but once you put the pedal to the metal (in sport mode), holy shitballs is the torque insane. My HUD couldn't even keep up with how fast the car was gaining speed.

Dont do what you think you should do, just do what you want to do. if you don't want performance upgrades, don't get them! But perhaps go for the IND front splitter/spoiler something else cosmetic to show for your spending
