Suggest 328 upgrades

Flat out, suggest things for me to do. Its not as if i'm anywhere near running out of things to do, but what would you guys do?

I need ideas. (please do not suggest things that directly conflict with things i have on the car, ie, i have a m3 front bumper, dont tell me to get a reiger one, i'm not interested)

For now, my car:
-98 328i sedan black/black/black
-sport package (sport seats/m3 steering/ sideskirts)
-m3 front bumper
-m3 rear diffuser
-m3 mirrors
-reiger GTR carbon fibre front splitter (thanks mark)
-Clears all around
-Hid's/angel eyes/euro ellispoids, etc
-tint
-rims
-m3 door sills
-audio/video is done
-s52 cams
-m50 manifold
-pulleys
-3.38 diff
-H&R race for m3
-Billstein sports strut for m3
-SS lines
-x brace
-m3 brakes
-software/piggyback
-intake
-m3 mouldings/motorsport inserts
-motorsport flag


things i know i have to do:
-exhaust
-short shift


Other than that, i made a list a long time ago of things i wanted to do, most of them are now done, help me make a new list. My car has ~180K kms. Should i be doing
-suspension bushings (powerflex?)
-Tranny mounts? (feels ok, but is it wear and tear?)


I'm not interested in boost, or cracking the seal on the head.

Thanks guys!

To be honest, you've nailed it on pretty much all the textbook performance [and aesthetic] mods for non-M E36s. The only thing I'd do is some freshening up work on the suspension related components, such as your RTABs and bushings, unless they were recently done.

At 180k kms, those sort of minor issues can ruin the way our cars handle despite the upgraded shocks/springs. Ask me how I know

Great mods thus far bro, I can't wait to see her in the spring!

edit: I've always wondered what "black/black/black" means? What's the third black there for? LOL

Car sounds really nice, post some pics!

Way to rep the 328

I guess I have a few suggestions:
-sways for sure!!!
-lightweight flywheel
-fan delete
-asc delete
-I would defintily go with a reflash instead of a piggyback
-aftermarket steering wheel

-m3 skirts (i think the twisted m3 ones are nicer than the 328 ones, more aggressive)
-oh something expensive and rare but I think looks great are those hamann foglight/brake duct things that put the foglight on the inside and brake duct on the outside, they look sick I want them for my ride really bad.
-blacked out kidneys
-a huge ass muther@#$%en sticker across the whole side of the car that says MAXBIMMER.COM

Anuk black (paint) / black (black interior) /black (car is blacked out, black tint, black kidneys)

RTABs need to be done, you're right! i'll add that to the list.

Pedro, thanks for the tips bro! I gave mitch your number btw.

I'm gonna leave ASC, and not do the fan delete. ASC cause i let my brother drive the car, and although in terms of this site my car may not be quick, believe me, for a real novice driver, it will be very quick.

Fan delete my mechanic talked me out of. Its dyno proven at a few HP, but the complications of an aux fan just aren't worth the trouble for me.

Flywheel i should do. I thought about it a while ago, probably going to do UUC stage 2, but i really dont know what i'm doing yet. The clutch is new and holds, so i dont want to just throw a fidanza one in if i'm gonna upgrade it later, still mulling it over

I forgot to mention, i have euro clear fogs, with HID's going into them soon. The hamann brake ducts are sweet, but not my style (i think jesse on bf.c has em, if you're looking)

i also forgot to mention kidneys are already blacked out, and kamei eyebrows are going on.

i love my m3 steering, and momo's/the like are way too agressive for me.

I think i'm going to do piggyback and software reflash, probably first just piggyback, and then software to remove speed limiter.

M3 skirts would be nice, but i can't justify spending 200$ + paint for that slight change.

Keep the ideas coming!

p.s. anuk thanks for that link on the gauge rings, those are pretty nice! Sorry i didn't answer, i was on the phone

Straight pipes, Kameleon, and 2 less doors.

Have you done the subframe re-enforcement?

Bushings/seals all replaced.

go lower. go bigger (rims).

I've seen XBOX's and PS's in cars, be the first to put a WII in your car. I'm totally serious.

Boots, if he put a Wii in there he probably couldn't do shit with it but stare it it. Try using those remotes in such a small space as inside a car and you'll find yourself smacking everything around you.

^^lol i already have a TV and an xbox in my car boys

Straight pipes? lol.
Chamelon paint? lol.
I bought a 4dr on purpose, if i wanted a coupe i'd have one

lower? H&R race for 95 M3 is AFAIK the lowest suspension H&R makes. Anything lower = coils. too $$.

Ditto, i want 19 inch ACS type 3's, too pricey.

I haven't re-enforced my subframe, probably should. Supposedly its less of an issue on newer e36's, but you guys are right.

True say on the Navi.

You have GPS?

Get a Radar Detector (Beltronics STi), and a LIDAR jammer.

Jamming lazer in ontario is really stupid.

I dont speed, so there's no point in getting the STI.


I have navigayshun on a laptop i carry around with me.

underglow's on order

on a serious note, if i could get underglow in motorsport colours.
