Any ideas on mods?

I have only read about Bimmers breaking down on the E36 forum, this is starting to scare me...
I owned a 1993 325i with the factory sports package. I purchased it new and sold it to my nephew in 2003 and he still has it with 99,000 on the odometer. From 1993-1994, I did the following upgrades: 16" wheels, CAI, SSK, Dinan chip, Dinan exhaust, cross drilled then slotted rotors, SS brake lines, front strut brace, VDO oil pressure & temp gauges and voltmeter. Repalced the diff and trans fluids with Redline and went to Mobil 1. The car is a rocket and has never broken down. BTW, I never serviced the car at the dealer unless it was covered under warranty. The car still has the original clutch! I did the upgrades because I was going to track the car, but decided to purchase a purpose built race car instead.

Regards....JL
