I recently aquired a 1994 325is auto and was wondering what the best upgrades per cost were. It has about 150,000 miles on it, so anything that will indanger the engine (like NOS) is out of the question. I'm just interested in engine upgrades, handling, braking, and looks will be later.

Also, I wouldn't have bought an auto, except it was almost given to me. Is it possible to convert it to a manual.

Thanks

hope you enjoy I know I LOVE MINE!! even though your bimmer is auto(mine is auto too) using Manual switch. Its awesome for going from 0-110... of course if you know how to shift properly. You gotta go from gear 1 till it reaches 4,000 rpm let go of gas than press on it again.. once you reach 6,000 rpm switch 2nd gear once you reach high rpm than switch 3rd. Im not sure if this is a bad practice but I just started practicing this lastnight and I think its alot better than sportshift because I can feel the big kick when I press down on the peddle. Its fucking awesome.

m3 cams, Jim C chip, rear brake set off a 325ic (cause there vented and need a thicker cailper), drilled rotors, shocks and H and R springs, this was my plan, all best bang for the buck if you ask me welcome to the 94 352is club

well, if the car is on it's original suspension components, renewing at least the front bushings and ball joints can do a lot to refresh the handling of the car.
