Finally found my baby

So I 'ordered' my 2010 135i and it should be here mid-next week!

The only sacrifice from my dream setup was black leather interior instead of coral red. Black was my second choice as it does look great with the anthracite headliner. No iDrive, no power seats, M-Sport package, 6MT, AW.
Only has 20k miles, just over a year left on the factory warranty. I will speak to my local dealer about an extended warranty, what are your opinions on this? Good, bad experiences?

I already have the black-line LCI tail lights ordered and paid for a new set of Michelin PSS's! The dealer had put on brand new rear RFT so I will be selling those along with the almost new front tires.

I would like some opinions on the first performance mods that I should get done. My preference, as I feel the 135 has plenty of power stock, is handling.
Upgraded Tires: Done.
Suspension mods: What is the order I should have done? I will use
this as a starting template
BBK: Still researching Brembo vs StopTech, leaning Brembo.
LSD: Looking at VAC Motorsports for the build, trying to decide between Quaife vs OS Giken.
Once these are complete I will look to add power, probably the BMW PPK to start. Really the last thing on my agenda at the moment.

Thanks for your help guys, many of you have been extremely helpful already!
