Mein Auto: 1996 318i convertable

Hello everyone new to this forum and new to owning a BMW. just purchased a 1996 318i. Convertable. 120k. So did some maintaince:
Oil change
New Plugs
Air filter
Fuel filter
Engine light with code for upstream o2 sensor and insufficient cat(replaced o2 sensor, engine light resolved)
Tire wobble at highway speed(replaced control arms and bushings,tie rods,sway bar bushings). All ball joints were shot.
From time to time the egret spinns in the egnition
Speakers are shot(put in used 5.25 kicker panel speakers can hear music now)
Replaced factory clutch stop... Much better without all the dead clutch peddle movement
Noticed driver fog light was loose (bracket has broken pins so I need to replace that so the light doesn't fall out when I hit a bump)
All new tires
Front end allignment

Any other suggestions as to maintaince needed?

Also I'm wondering if you would recommend 101 performance project (book), if yes does anyone have a copy they would like to pass forward!

Nice to find this forum,I look forward to meeting everyone
