They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. ;)

If you want to customise it, I'd try to come up with something unique. :)

Your going to have to be pretty creative when it comes to getting parts since BMW won't let you order anything without a chassis number.. even with our magic trade account we cant just start ordering bits.. which is a real shame since I would love some GP side skirts for my car :D:D

its quite hard to get hold of GP parts, unless you know someone with a chassis number, its hard even for me with my trade account, BMW are quite protective over the GP and the stuff is not cheep ;)

I considered a set of the side skirts as they push the air around the rear wheels, but the fact that they are so ugly made me go with the aero side skirts in the end.

How about a nice carbon front splitter and some nice m7 grills? Not many of those about over here so would be quite cool and unique.

What sort of budget are you setting aside with regards to mods and what do you want to get out of it?

Pre warning - Modding is like a disease.... once you start you can't stop lol! :p:p:p

Perhaps on that budget then you should consider some handling based modification. Lowering can really change the look of your car, and make it so much more fun and add some serious grin factor. There are quit a lot of options for this out there from all sorts of suppliers starting from £100ish upwards.

£300 wont get you many GP parts.
