And the most tasteful mods you can do to your car, OP, is a slight drop, a good set of wheels (I personally won't go over 18" on the E46 platform), and a yummy exhaust note. I'm also a fan of yellow fog lights, so that's a cheap and easy one ($15 on eBay).
Both more so the lady!

Hahahaha I'm loving the reactions on here. Any other car forum, DSM, Honda, Mazda, etc. guys would be losing their freaking minds due to a female being there in any form. The majority of guys here are married and/or have women with whom they're exceptionally pleased, so I enjoy the lack of testosterone overflow going on. In conclusion, welcome.

Not really different here. Totally predictable. If this was a new guy he would have gotten three "welcome to the 'fest" posts, not four pages and 83 posts.
