I'm telling you, man... the 5-series just need a better differential for a big improvement in the 0-60 department.

Exhaust isn't essential with the upgraded differential.
And a chip is a no-brainer.

I'm just saying a differential would be the biggest, noticable gain in terms of 0-60 acceleration.
Dinan suggests a 3.15 from a 2.89, but I think a 3.64 would be more appropriate. But if you want to go crazy, go ahead and throw in a 4.10.
