What do you guys think? First set of mods...

Just as the title suggests, I'm gearing up to make my first round of what I call modifications. I'm not a big autox guy, nor am I a guy who goes for speed; I'm just trying to cruise and enjoy my M. So basically I own an 08 6MT interlagos blue E93, which is bone stock (19" wheels if that influences any opions or suggestions).

Also, I'm not trying to go all out on this first round, as I did just start a new job. I'm planning on waiting to buy the bigger, more expensive items so I can better budget my way through (since I hear, once your start modding, you get addicted).

Round 1:

black painted rear badge
front license plate mount (since i just recently moved to TX)
front painted reflectors
CF/ matte/ glossy black/ tinted side markers (can't decide)
M3 edition/ glossy/ matte grille set (again, can't decide)
LCI LED Tails
Lux V4's

Of course, I intend to order all from IND + LUX and install from either ABR in Houston or Eurosport in OKC. Aside from that, I missing anything else that's pretty basic and a must have, or are there any mods on here that you think that can wait on and add on later? Also, any suggestions for round 2 mods?

Btw, I just moved down here to Houston and I've been driving my daily beater (2008 altima coupe 3.5). While it is super comfortable and I don't mind just driving it without a care, I really miss driving my M (it's sitting at home in OKC in my parent's garage). I don't have the means of having two cars down here, so I had to leave it there until I sold my current DD
Now, I've decided it's been too long and I need to get going with this process and sell my DD and move down my M

Tl;DR -> Before moving my M down to where I currently live, is the list of mods above complete or incomplete + why?

I'd get grill and gills that will ultimately match the color of whatever wheel I chose. Personally I customized my exterior then next "round" moved on to the interior then went to performance mods after spending so time with the car.Have Fun!

Pics? I mean the car is literally bone stock E93 with the 19's. There's nothing done to it yet.
