Just got my first bmw and I love it!! Got some Qs?

I just bought a 1993 325i sedan yesterday. It is a beautiful care and has some serious nuts for being a 6 cyl. I have been in the f- body world for a while and decided to try something new so I got a BMW. I have always wanted one. Got some questions.
What is the hp rating on my car stock?
What are the typical mods on these cars?
Good places for parts?
What does the button do that is right of the steering wheel on the dash?
Anyone on here in the DFW area (TEXAS)?

Let me know I have tons of questions but this should get me started.
Thanks and glad to be here.
Mike

If I'm not mistaken, the 325 has 189 hp stock.

Typical first mods are a cold air intake and a chip/shark for the DME.

Everyone has their favorite places for parts; I've had good luck with bavauto.com.

The button you refer to is a circuit breaker for the power windows. If you press this button, none of your windows will work.

As for me, I'm 2000 miles from Dallas, in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia.

Like Jim said 189 hp and 181 ft.lb stock.
Intake,chip,LSD,Exhaust are a good start.
BavAuto is good but can be slow, depending on how far away you live. I like BMAparts.com in So. Cal.

There are some guys in the DFW area I believe, hopefully they chime in! There are so many mods you can do to your 325, dont get me started
