I hate that area as well. Our Lexus died on us in the same area a few years back. Had to get it towed all the way back to SLC.

I'd also like to mention that Chad nearly jinxed me when a Caddy CTS showed up on bags but his front bags couldnt lay frame so I took lowest/stance with ease.

Mein Auto: 99 M3 Vert
I posted my car earlier but since then I have changed some things. 1999 M3 Convertible

I added strip led DRLs, and Predator Chromiums with 5k HID.
Things you can't see that I added are the Dual 10" kicker subs and the kicker amp.. and I tinted all the windows (including the rear plastic vert window) to the legal VA limits.

I'm gonna be adding "60 SMD Xenon White/Amber Yellow Dual Color Switchback 1157 (aka 7528 2357) LED Turn Signal Light Bulbs" when they come in 3-5 days. They make it to where my Turn Signals will be Xenon white however when I use them as turn signals they will be Amberl in case you didn't already know. (So they are still legal here in Virginia)

Love the lights. Haven't decided if I should keep ours stock or upgrade a few items.

I got the fogs because mine didn't have any. I also got the head lights because my headlights lenses fell off inside the housing. O.o

The fogs were only like 90$ and the headlights about $260. Free installation on both since a lot of my friends are mechanics (:

They look absolutely amazing to me. You can make them blink with your turn signals (I don't; I think it's gay). The only thing I didn't take time to figure out which I should have is making the fog lights turn off when the high beams are on. I assume if I find an inspector to pass my dj autos then he prolly won't give a **** about some fogs.

Not a fan of the fog lights. They don't fill the gap.

The 2nd gen MR2s are pretty cool in my book. Put a turbo on it and go to town.

That's why I'm having trouble deciding if I should mod her or keep her pure and untouched.
