Welcome to the Werkz.....

I would start off with a Cold Air Intake, AFE has a nice setup for our e36 328i....or you can make your own....then, I would go with a catback muffler, Eisenmann, Borla, & Supersprint are some name brands & then the Conforti software Shark Injector, also the M50 Intake Swap is also an option.....here are some links to help: Good luck with your car & upgrades.....

Do the maintenance first, cooling systems are the Achilles Heel of these cars. Mods won't do ant good if the plastic impeller grenades and you end up losing a head gasket. I know this link is from another forum but it is helpful.
