i concur, I am drawing up similar plans for myself as well. here's the order so far:
1) better race quality brake pads w/ stock calipers and stock rotors (same as oem blank?)
2) cold air intake
3) underdrive pulleys
what's the purpose of this and what is it
5) suspension, sway bars, rims, lower car, 2 sets of tires (performance and snow)
somewhere along there, go to driving school
my bro said he will give this as a b'day gift
this might be plenty for the 530i automatic, if I don't end up buying a manual m3 at this point, I will proceed on to putting a supercharger and bbk on this but not sure if its advantageous to do so on the automatic model. what are your thoughts and opinions?
