Talking 1st time Benz owner

Hi. I just put down a deposit on a 1994 MB e320 w124 coupe. I had my german MB trained mechanic go through the entire car and everything checked out. In fact the head has never been off the block and the gasket is still good. There are no leaks etc.
This is my 1st MB and I am excited about its possibilities, . I have been driving for the last 11 years an Audi A6 4.2L quattro. That was a great car but was starting to cost to much to repair. So I am getting this e320.

How can I increase the horsepower economically as well as improve the handling and stance? The car appears to be a basic model( non sportline) and it has a factory installed phone with what looks like a hands free factory system behind the rear view mirror. Additionally it has a mechanical rear window scrreen. Is there a style name for these options?

The car has 91,000+ miles on it and is a 100% dealer maintained southern S car.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks Bruce
