    A decat can help, but you might find yourself more annoyed with the noise than please with the power.
    A chip would be a good option, 15-20bhp quick and easy, which is probably the biggest single gain apart from mechanical stuff like cams or chargers.

    Cams are very expensive still, so value for money drops.

    M52 (323/328) Exhaust manifolds might get you a little more, and they can be pretty cheap from breakers / ebay.

    Fit a chip from the guy above...totally transformed my car and cheap price too Well worth it ...check his website for details.
    You could also fit a BBTB from Alpina527 for some more gain and a decent induction kit with a quality heatshield will help too
    Then fitting US M3 cams is another option as is getting some headwork done too ie porting and polishing

    His chip was £60 and BBTB is a big bore throttle body

    For £60 you can't go wrong It's a proper map too-not one of those cheap Ebay things which may or may not work...check his website by clicking on the link in his signature
