Grounding out the car deals with electricity. The ground I believe returns the charge to the battery. I know that brand new cars with an upgraded ground kit can experience some noticable gains but I doubt an e30 can.

i think the best thing you can "reground" is the battery itself, by cleaning off the posts to get the best possible connection.

This cured the infamous 318i idle surge on my old '85 e30
