    hi all, ive been wondering for a few days if there are any little tweaks you can make to bmw's that set them apart from standard ones.

    before my BMW i had a saxo and many people used to modify the grille or de-badge them.

    so is there any sort of mods you can do at home, for little money, to make them look just a little bit better?

    i have an e36 316 but i guess this could be spread across all of the range.

    There are thousands of mods you can do......
    Carbon badges,debadging,alloys,bodykits,lighting,coilover s,induction kits on and on...depending on how much you want to spend etc....Little vague just to ask little mods....

    As StK says you're a little vague, but if you mean "little tweaks" as in reasonably cheap, subtle mods, then I'd say clear indicators front and rear, HID/Xenon conversion, maybe CCFL Angel Eyes. With a bit of luck you'll be able to do all that for £100 like I did thanks to Ebay

    The more expensive but obvious mod is alloys, I'd say 18s would be nice

    That's because anything to try and improve Saxo's is pointless

    If you get CCFL's from a seller that's selling them in bulk then that's a good sign, then check their feedback and see what previous buyers have said, if all good, then you should be fine
