Ok....here is the situation. I have a 1999 E36 328is with the M-Teknic sports package. I have already installed an ECIS CA Intake and 330ci Motorsport rims Staggerd. Car handles beautifuly and sounds nice with the intake, however I need to complete my car already. I dont want to put any more money in after this! I just want it DONE!!!!

I need advice on Short Shifter kit. Which one is the best for the money. I would like a 30% shorter shift if possible and also which is the easiest to install.

Secondly, is there a chip that I can get for my car which optimizes everything and allows me to go 155 plus instead of 133mph.

Thirdly, I need advice on exhaust system. I had my heart set on the AA Gen 3 exhaust, however I heard that it is very loud. I would like to keep exhaust to a minimum until I hit it above 4000 plus RPMS! AA is the way to go from what I hear.

Also Since putting the rims on I have decided I need to lower the car. the front end seems a little high for my liking. The rear is ok but can go down a little more. Since I have the sport suspension and M-Tecknic package what are the reccomendations for lowering my car. Are there springs that I can get, or do I have to spend big money and get shocks too! I dont want the car to bounce like crazy, b/c I feel it handles perfectly right now.

ALso I have been hearing so muich about these X-Braces. Is it worth getting. Also do I need sway bars and/or Strut Tower Braces??? i heard that they are 90%show and 10%functional.

Lastly what does you guys think about these mods and any additional suggentions would be greatly appreaciated.

Thanks again for everones help and I will u/l pics as soon as I get my car detailed.

I am in SOUTH FLORIDA and there is a water shortage so you cannot wash your car or else you get a $500 fine!!!! IT sux!
