Chip would be good for about 250, then add pullies... maybe a good exhaust. For about 800 bucks you could chip it and exhaust it.. for looks look into lights all around if you need them.

eh, I'm not big on underdrive pulley's. Especially on cars such as these, that have such fussy electrical systems.

If your looking for more power, I'd further help the breathing by adding a free flow exhaust, e39 MAF, and a software upgrade.

If you just want more fun, upgrade your suspension, and add front and rear strut tower braces, x-brace, and a camber kit.

Either option could be done for the aforementioned budget.

I vote for the exhaust and software. I love my conforti software($250) and would like an exhaust but have other priorities(lights and lip spoiler, plus paying for what I already have on it).

i think your best investment at a time like this would be TMS chip, exhaust and possibly CAI. That is exactly what i would do.

with installation, yes a good suspension set will be over 800. Springs 200-250. Shocks 500-600. These prices plus install.

Be more specific as to what you want to do.. visual, suspension, performance...

JC chip from Turner Motorsports for sure. There are underdrive pulleys that don't change the alternator pulley, UUC for one. The rest on an exhaust system. You're sucking in more air with the CAI, need to get rid of it somewhere. I would get the chip last. Tell them what you have and they will flash the chip for your combination.
