IMHO, the car is already good looking (my aunt has a 760 w/ a V12, but same body style/year), already has a good sound stystem, decent wheels--I mean its' a BMW 7 series for cryin out loud!! I know you have to get the bug out of your system, so get the windows tinted and grab a new intake and an exhaust system (not the loudest, riciest one either, please)--then spend the rest on all the ladies the car will get you!

2 grand isn't nearly enough to make it a performance ride.
I guess an intake and exhaust system would help, but I wouldn't go around bragging abt how fast you are with those mods. They'd just be nice when the occasional civic pulls up next to you at a light.
I'd slap some nice looking, maybe gunmetal or smoke gray wheels, low profile, grippy tires on it, and maybe some interior accent blue lights, under the dash board near the feet.
Hmmmm..... Maybe an after market, chrome or just different looking grill?
I don't know how large the aftermarket is for that model beemer, but I'm sure there are parts out there.
Good luck, have fun!

I recall a riced out BMW in 2Fast2Furious and it looked pretty good. Not near as riced as they do with Civics, Supras, and Skylines, but still. If you want to put neon on it, go ahead. Just make sure its a dark color with heavily tinted windows. NO WING SPOILER. And none of those loud as muffler tips.

lol! I traded my '86 Fleetwood Brougham for a Jaguar a couple years back. I paid $500 for it, and thought it might be fun to do a lowrider in street rod style... (please excuse the 5 minute photoshop job...)



Mine got 10 mpg with the 5 liter, but I still only used $40 worth of gas per month to commute to work in it.
