Sounds like you are after performance with the car. Unfortunately BMW has tuned these cars extremely well from the factory so you cannot expect large gains unless you go with the forced induction route. With that said, there are intakes, pulleys, exhausts and software that will improve the responsiveness of the car and free up some power. Here are a few places to start:

aFe High Performance E46 Intake System



Simota Ram Style CF Intake



Active Autowerke E46 Exhaust (325/330)



Feel free to drop me a PM or email if you have any questions!
