I'm not sure if it can take an M50, I don't drag race or street race. I haven't done any 1/4 mile runs either. You'll find me at a race track rather than a drag strip on most weekends You can see that most of my mods are related to handling and not power. I don't race on the street, so to me I don't really care if a Honda can do 1/4 mile in 12 seconds flat. On a race track, it's always a different story. Last year I did race my buddy's auto 325 and manual 318. I smoked both of them silly.

Anyways, it took me 2 years to build up to this point. So it's never really worth it. But in the end, you have a great handling car that not too many people have.

Now lets see those mods people! I know people out there mod their bimmers!

B_w. is an unknown quantity at this point
i got my car ( 98 328is) at the beggining of july and have so far added:
- eurosport cold air intake
- uuc system u exhaust
- bilstein sport shocks
- h&r sport springs
- eibach sway bar kit
- bmw motor sport x-brace
- zkw euro ellipoids w. angel eyes
- e46 m3 rear shock mounts
- reinforced sway bar mounting tabs
- euro tail lights
- clear corners and turn signals
- had the yellow deleted on my headlights except when i am signalling

i am thinking of:
- hamman hm2's or bbs ch's
- m3 front bumper
- m rear defuser
- m side moldings painted
- HID kit
- underdrive pulleys
- conforti software
- short shifter
- lightweight flywheel
- front strut tower brace
i thinks that all. i would consider doing an obd 1 conversion with m3 cams and m50 intake manifold but any money i spend on this car is money i cannot spend on my next car. i am trying to talk my mom into getting an e46 m3 which i could by off her in a couple of years and all these mods do not really increase the resale value of my car.

turbo 2.8
cp pistons, eagle rods, gt35r, tec3

Well, I joined the forums in July after I snagged my first Bimmer.... and you fellas all turned me on into world of modding again!

To be decided:
-OBDII--->OBDI conversion w/ aftermarket chip ~1600
OR
-Dinan Stage 2 software programming w/ Schrick M50 intake manifold ~1200
- I guess Schrick Cams can be added to this list, but won't be considered until all over options are exhausted. ~1200
-Dinan Throttle body ~400

To do List: Exterior Modifications
18" M-Parrellel replicas w/ Falkens (delivered ) $1325

Maybe I new headunit some day.

Total Budget

So, why spend so much?? Well, to be honest Im sorta questioning it myself. I purchased this car so I wouldn't have to take an auto loan (paid cash ) I only drive it 3 or 4 times of month, and I've always promised myself that I would give myself a 'project' car that I could enjoy. Now, I really need to add a new digitial camera to that list so I post a pic or two for you guys to see

Good luck with all of your projects
