Even a simple K&N air filter is not out yet. Ditto on some performance brake parts. I know it will all come in due time.
I dont know about you but I am not a big fan of large bumps in agressive corners! I am worried about damaging my car, it makes me start to worry that the sidewall is going to roll or bend a suspension component. I guess I am just a worried novice driver LOL...

Just adding the burl walnut shift knob for now. Briefly thought about going to Dinan when a chip becomes available, but frankly the car is more than quick enough as is. No more changes planned.

Modding is a good way to personalize. A nice set of wheels, suspension drop, and a couple of aero kit parts goes a looooong way and sets the car apart. There's still relatively few e90's on the road but wait till they're as popular as the e46, then I bet a lot of folks who said they're not modding anything will want a few things to stand out.
