I always try to advise others to "Mod Smart." A properly maintained and well modified e36 will last well into the 200k range.

Anyway, below is my current mod list. I went through all the stages of naturally aspirated mods then realized I needed FI to make real power. I sold most of the N/A mods and started over w/ the S/C kit. She is slowly evolving into a auto-x/track rat. I still have quite a ways to go but right now she's just a really fun daily driver. I should have all the suspension work done by next spring which should make for a really interesting auto-x season.
