    Lowering the car and thus lowering the centre of gravity will improve the handling, as will front and rear strut braces.

    For lowering, coilovers will give you the option to adjust the drop by as much as you like but are more expensive than say a 40mm shock/spring combo.

    Strut braces will reduce body roll when cornering and are a very effective chassis modification.

    But the best modification you can make is uprating the brake discs and pads for either fast road or larger versions (4 or 6 pot if your car doesn't already have them).

    Always start with stopping! There's no point in making your car faster if the anchors don't work when you need them

    With those mods the best addition you can make is a LSD, Birds UK do Quaife Differentials. This will help to put the power down more efficiently. Oh and you will be able to do powerslides/drifting when the mood takes you!

    If you go for lowering springs be mindful that you will lose suspension travel on standard length dampers so don't go for springs with a large drop. Ideally you want a shorter damper with lowering springs, something like Bilsteins B8 damper (Awesome, awesome damper). At the least i would check the condition of your existing dampers to make sure they have a good amount of life in them, otherwise they may not last long with lowering springs. Alternatively a good coilover from the likes of Bilstein, Eibach, KW. Seeing as its a 335i i wouldn't go for a budget coilover. Springs, go for Eibach, H&R or any other established brand.

    HTH and good luck, keep us updated once the mods are done.
