Sorry, not trying to be mean, just honest.
I completely agree that a 325xi auto is not a great base for modding. A few NA mods probably wouldn't be an issue as they're not likely to produce enough additional power to really stress things. A SC would be much more of a gamble. Either way, it's a gamble that someone who might not have a spare $5k laying around to replace a transmission should seriously consider before starting to mod.
