Help with modding 525i (amateur)

However, I canít really find any aftermarket support with this car. Iím on a strict budget since I just got a job. Any suggestions on what to do?

This is my car

My advice? Enjoy it for what it is. The 525 is the base model and you're not going to get any performance boost no matter what you spend on it. Bimmers are expensive to maintain, so if you're on a budget, bank your cash for the inevitable repairs to come.
