If it makes you feel any better, my old street had 12 houses. I bought a brilliant black Mazda rx8 in 2003 (2004 MY, which was the first year). I custom ordered matte black Enkei RPF1s with perfectly measured offsets & widths to fit 275s all the way around with no rubbing, tinted windows, changed out the b-pillar appliqué, added chrome fender strakes & fuel filler door, blacked out the turn signals leaving a small sliver exposed (looked mean), installed double-din touchscreen head unit, etc, etc. A few months later my neighbor buys a BB RX8, I'm thinking "that's cool; our street looks like a before and after shot", then he started to attempt to duplicate every mod I had performed.

Stuff like that happens. At least you know your ride is good enough that people want to copy it!
