Intercooler + tune, $800-2000, should put you over crank power of the V8 and lots more torque, still emissions legit in 49 states
LSD $3500 (for a manual)
M3 front control arms, rear subframe bushings, $1200 (ish? I'm not looking this up)
Wheel and tire upgrade $2000-2500
Labor $0-500

With those upgrades, yeah, a 335i or better yet 135i is really in line with a V8 M3 and easily surpassing an E46 on objective terms. But that stuff all adds up quick! #bmwtax
