Starter set

Hey all --

Just a quick question: In moving from a stock car (with hopeful soon upgrades of wheels and muffler) to starting to mod the car, what "performance" mods would you all suggest as the best thing on the car to upgrade first? If money was no object (which it clearly is in my case), but what changes would you make within reason as the first upgrade?

Secondly, if money was an issue, what performance mods would you suggest as a starter in the <$300 range? I'm looking for the mod that would make the most noticeable difference in daily driving and performance (I'm not taking this car to the track or anything). Oh, its a 94 E320. Thanks!

Wheels & tires are a good starting point, then shocks, springs & so on.

Even a set of 215/55/15 tires on the OE rims would help.

what kind of investment are we talking about to upgrade shocks and springs? It would be awfully nice to lower the car.....but I don't have any idea about how much it might cost to replace those two items.
