I recently bought a e46 and I want to change the style so I get all the advises that I can get. my options now are:
Paint the wheels black.
Paint the grill black.
Pain the bumpers as the same color as the car.

I accept all the advises so I attached some pictures and you can get one idea how the car looks now.

Looks fantastic as is! Love the color... silver grey? Buy a set of black front kidneys if you want... leave the wheels alone. That car is 17 years old... things are going to fail and is most likely needing items you are unaware of yet.

spend the time getting the mechanicals in tip-top shape. That car is beautiful.
The car looks fantastic! why ruin it by painting this and that. I would love to have the car I just got, look like this. I am spending $100's and many many hours to get my Base back to something not even remotely close to this. I will trade you!

I have a red ZHP, It took me days to remove a spray coat to stock rims keep them original, don t have a pic loaded but did fine four 2011 X3 stock rims at salvage yard that had been powder coated gloss black cool looking design and got 17" to boot. 47mm offset right, bore right an black is kinda the new look with red cars. !7" rims give best all around performance

I also found may black gloss, semi and flats new sets for M3 and ZHP staggered 18" for cheap, I bought set for previous ZHP and worked out great for that black look

If you absolutely must do something to make it sportier bolt one of these to the front bumper:
