    It probably is an M50, so most likely it will need a chip swap as it's unlikely to be reprogrammed in the car.
    It will possibly have EWS too so a simple swap will bring the immobiliser in.

    The M52 exhaust manifolds are a bit better, but not much that you would feel.
    Recommended if you are taking the manifolds off, or come across a set cheap and do the work yourself, but that's about it.

    You'd loose a bit of acceleration if you fitted an M3 diff, as the 320 one is a 3.45 and the M3 one is 3.15

    I haven't but they are OK, as long as it doesn't replace the crank pulley / crank damper.
