What are improvements you can make to improve your 0-60 times on your bmw? Is a lightweight flywheel a good start?

if your car is a manual 323:

3.46 differential ($250-$500)
shark injector ($350)

this will def cut your accel time atleast by 0.5 seconds (if you have the manual)

yeah stock manual 323 rear differential is 3.07..going to a 3.46 gives you 12+% power/torque gains transfered to the wheels.

that should help, by changing to a 3.46 you can gear your car for better acceleration... but for the best improvemnt you might want to jion your local BMWCCA and participate in their autocross and driving school events
