The BMW 3 Series has set the benchmark for performance and luxury. But even at this benchmark, these cars can be dramatically improved. Each major component group of the car can be modified or upgraded for more performance. Although the stock BMW is a more-than-capable sports sedan, veteran author Jeffrey Zurschmeide delves into all the different methods for extracting more performance, so you can make your E36 even more potent. He explains how to upgrade handling and control through installation of aftermarket coil-over springs, bushings, sway bars, and larger brakes. Producing more power is also a priority, so he shows you how to install and set up a cold-air intake, ignition tuners, and exhaust system components. You also learn to work on cylinder heads, cams, and pistons. In addition, your're shown the right way to install superchargers and turbo kits. If your 3 Series is making more power, then you need to get that power to the ground; so you will find out about upgrading the transmission and limited-slip differentials. Includes 386 black and white photos. Whether you want to build an all-out racer, or just add a little zip to your street car, buy now to find out how to get the performance you want out of your BMW.
