i had a 328i for a bit, it was a great car i had no issues and the power was sufficient for a daily driver. However I have had two 335i's and their beast. Either way you go its a BMW and their a great car with great styling.

ecu and 3.63 diff from an auto (if your running manual trans)
This will provide a significant performance increase at the cost of slightly lower gas mileage (do not underestimate the power of a poor mans supercharger....aka shorter gear ratio)

the N52 ecu tune from CS Tuning is $449 ($349 for a limited time) and you'll get about 14-15hp out of it so there ya go... easy fix.
