Before you start modding, you should really look at maintance.
Your car looks really clean. The only thing I suggest is lowing springs

Looks like a nice find for 650! I would go over it with a fine tooth comb and see what needs to be done

Leaking fuel line or charcoal canister perhaps? Check the rubber lines under the manifold and from there to the firewall, especially around the hose clamps. I don't know where the e36 charcoal canister is but e30 is around the bottom of the firewall on the drivers side and if that's missing or not functioning it can smell like gas for sure
