What accessories 35d?

Now that I have my oil question answered. What would be some of the first things you guys/gals would buy? I matched the tint on the front windows and got the BMW vent visors. I don't want it to look tacky but enjoy cool additions to make it unique.

vent visors?! For me that's past the 'tacky' point..but hey, to each their own.

I like rubber floor mats in the rainy season.

Something to hold the phone....

If you are so inclined, film for paint protection up front...

Short list for me.

Lol. It rained the other day and I cracked the window for air and the rain poured in. So that one was a little less aesthetic. But, I hear you. I picked the rubber instead of carpet form the dealership. What I did get for parking in the city are the euro bumper guards. I highly recommend those they are like pillows for the car. Phone def needs a spot. Thank u

Just get what you need. You're the only one who really knows that.

Eurobumper guards

I will take some pics. You can see them at eurobumberguard.com . I picked mine up at Lexus parts dept. Just b/c I couldn't wait. They are $70 each and wrap pretty much the entire bumper. The hooks are rubber and you can bend with your hand. I strap them from the tire to tire around the bumber. I live in NYC and feel good about parkinking almost anywhere with them. Figured they were better than trying to get those huge front a rear brush guards (the tubes)

I have a cargo liner for the boot (it may be called a tray). When I first got one for my e53, I thought it was weird because it was so thin and light (I was expecting it to be like my rubber mats), but I came to like it that way. I got one for my 35d, then my x6. Carry mulch, rocks, beach stuff, or whatever and not worry about having to vacuum out your cargo area later.

I'm a little anal about wet and/or dusty dirty things getting on my carpet. That cargo liner once saved me from a chemical spill. I can't remember what it was because it was probably 5 years ago, but it was nasty.
