Here are a few things you can do for relatively reasonable money:
Looks:
- SHadownline window trim (replace the chrome)
- Blacked out grille
- LED (or clear/red) tails, clear sidemarkers, corners
- Trunk lip spoiler
- 18" or 19" wheels

Performance:
- ssk (if manual)
- sport springs/shocks
- CAI
- exhaust
- performance software

That is teh basic stuff people bolt on to their cars. What is your budget approximately? We may have a few more suggestions.

That is because there were. E36 coupes and verts were built up to 1999. E46 sedans were introduced in 1998 in Europe, 1999 in the US. E46 coupes and verts arrived in 2000. The E46 m3 hit the market for the 2001 MY.
