If you want to race you need to trade the 328i in for a 335i or M3. There are no mods for any large gains under $500. Now with a 335i you can easily add more power for little dinero.

Take off the four doors, the hood, the back seats, and the trunk lid to lower the weight a few hundred pounds. Kick out the rear window to decrease the drag you're going to get with the doors off. Might as well take out the a/c compressor too, as the interior is going to be naturally aspirated. Cost of mods: $0
