E30 upgrades

My 86 325 is just at the garage getting a safety inspection done, and once the mechanic has the verdict, and tells me what she needs to pass safety here in Ontario, I'm going to buy parts and do the work myself. I know all new brakes, ie, pads, rotors, lines, and a new exhaust, but when I've got the car up on jacks I'm going to do a suspension change-out too. Was thinking of getting the H&R Cup kit and lowering a couple inches.

Question is... what exhaust system should I be looking to get? And how about brakes, anyone have any favourites?

The cup kit works but a simple spring change out works too. As far as upgrades go what are you looking at doing? Performance or just better stock items?

i was looking to go with performance items. but this car had been sitting for a while, so while i replace the stock stuff with performance equivalents, i've got to replace things like vacuum lines, rad hoses, and maybe even fuel lines with stock stuff. i've checked out bavauto.com and turnermotorsport.com, but any other places i should be looking online for e30 parts?
