The BMS tuner would be great for improving throttle response and a nice set of Xenon lights would be a plus. A nice exhaust system would be a great improvement as well.
I don't plan on getting winter tires here in Raleigh. Except for the past few days, it rarely gets THAT cold, and I can't see spending money on tires when I don't think I really need to.
Is my thinking wrong here?
