What would you do to a N52 first...

Koni FSDs or a performance exhaust for a 328i? Probably will get both done eventually but having trouble deciding which one first

Or buy a performance driving school weekend. Unless you've done one, you're not as good a driver as you think you are. BMWCCA, or you've got numerous options in the Bay ares.

Just did the BMWCCA car control clinic in SF Candlestick park this past weekend, it was great fun! Got to do tons of things never thought of trying before on the street in a safe environment. We also had a 86 911 without ABS in our group for entertainment as well as two hulking Teslas that are surprisingly nimble around the cones

Nah, had this car since it was a 0 mile baby, in the exact rare color and configuration I wanted, really wouldn't want to trade it for a sloppy second hand 335 thrashed around by Joe Schmoe and making up for the maintenance he missed. Going to hang on to it for another year or so for a non-first year build of the 4 series and go for the upper scale 435i instead at that time . Just need to do little things to it like the FSDs to tide me over until then
