I would start with a set of OEM wheels, possibly the 135i wheels and then a gloss black lip..

RE: 125I E82 advice/show
Welcome!

Very neat looking ride you got there bru, well done.

Is this a diesel or a 125i? First thing I would do is rid myself of the peasant look by changing to the Msport bumpers and wheels, there are enough 18"s floating around to make it cheap, but wait until your next tyre change to get the most bang for your buck.

First cheap mod, I would spray the full grills gloss black, and add the rear spoiler, play around with plastidip as well to get some ideas, maybe black out the white foglight areas of the bumper for one big opening.

Interior mods like Bluetooth/usb and a sub/speaker or radio upgrade, and then start fiddling with the exhaust and cats

Post some interior pics as well, manual or automatic?

I like it the way it is. There are too many e82's with msport bumpers imo.

Maybe get the wheels sprayed or find a "rare" OEM rim. In other words not a msport wheel.

Black line taillights and xenons upfront.

RE: 125I E82 advice/show
look its a nice base...personally i love sporty sh!t so i would def do 1M bumper or M Sport...just because ..in my opinion..it looks so much nicer than the normal sh!t..it all depends on your taste. if you're inclined on leaving it as is with a rim change...to me..i dont think it'll look great with those bumpers...so ja..i would change it...just know you have a car with so much potential Thumbs

Slightly darker silver to make them more aggressive. But don't plastidip your wheels. I have been there just don't do it. And don't go gloss black.

We have a 125i coupe as well msport. So yeah I like the look as well. But still feel there are to many of them.

You need to check the forum for sale parts section bro, or check the advertisement section of the forum. Someone here will be able to help you out.
