Question What to do with a $1000?

Ok now that I have my new 08 Sedan, 6spd, Sparkling Graphite w/Black Extended Leather, Technology Package, Premium Package, Cold Weather Package, Moonroof, Sunsahdes, PDC, Premium Sound, Satellite and Ipod.

What are the best modifications to do with a $1000 max budget?

Any input and help would be appreciated.

Don

Some upgrade to the lighting angel eyes, cornering lights.
Exterior: Matte Black grills & Side grills,M3 Badge Emblem, Bumper Reflectors, Lumma CF Mirror covers.
Performance: aFe Filter, RPI intake Scoops, Pulleys, AA Short Shifter, AA chip software.

Or why not save a little more and go for an exhaust!

Those are some good starting areas

my number one rule is to always do suspension FIRST! too many ricers buying wheels + lips and still driving around like a 4x4. at least a dumped m3 will look even better

$1000 worth of gas, just drive the damn thing, its such a blast stock.

But I would save a bit more and get an exhaust.
