It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

In the first 5 minutes, I had my black grills on and roundel overlays. Safe to say this was my first mod and beginning of a long journey.

Later on in that day, still first day of ownership, I debadged and smoked out the headlights and taillights. (bear with me, I was still learning the do's and don'ts of the E90 world.

I ordered from there, and it took like 3 months to get fog lights! I too, will never return.
