Exclamation Why doesn't anyone modify the E83's?

Ive been a LONG time bmw enthusiast with 3 previous builds and now a new to me 07 Msport acquired for the wife.

Ive been researching and bummed there isn't much to do on these cars as Im used to tearing things apart. I hope this changes.

What's to modify?
It's a tall e46 wagon.
If you wanted something different you could have gotten that.
( above sounded snarky, was meant to be only sarcastic)

But seriously, coding stuff, changing wheels, mild suspension changes are about all that are technically feasible.

Yea thats all I'm finding. Wish there was some type of front add on lip for the sports. Ill have to get to thinking and thy something out. So far I've blacked the kidneys and upgraded the AE's.

I went with H&R sport springs and sway bars. Dropped me about 1.5". Drives more like a 3 series touring now. Still not as low as some with coilovers, but I'm happy with the stance. New wheels are next after winter with a matte black grille. Currently running stock 18" wheels with PSS. I also installed a K&N air filter.

Only other performance mod I'm planning is to add a Supersprint rear exhaust. Remus stopped making their kit for the E83 non-diesel models.

On the interior, I found a cheap LED kit on ebay and replaced all of my interior lights. I'm very happy with the soft white hues the LED throw.
