Beautiful car. Wish I had one...wait, I do I drive mine pretty hard and have been surprised that in 4 years no law enforcement has intercepted me (knock on all the wood in my home). They must be too busy busting kids in dropped and modded Civics. I hope your luck holds also.

Welcome aboard!!!

hahaha this board is making me a psycho with all the ideas!
i think first thing will be a set of matte black wheels, along with matte black badging and kidney grill..

the nav mod is a bit beyond my ability but would love the new nav look.

i have been reading about the wear on the bolsters people are seeing so i may get some covers or something to protect from the wear. would hate to cover the seats but I guess ugly wear is worse

I have to use the tow-hook bracket mount so that I don't have to drill holes in the bumper! That cop should have pulled over those Hondas with 22 inch wheels instead of me

I have gotten 3 speeding tickets since I got my 645. I was stopped on the I-10 by a state cop
He said I was rocking out.

Well, I have legal tint and no requirement for front plate. But I DO have a heavy foot! I feel bad for all of you who have reported issues with Johnny-Law.

In addition to seat covers you can get plastic mats to put on top of the BMW mats, and then another mat to protect the plastic mat. And then get yourself the bubble-boy protector for your car:



Just having some fun enjoy that new ride, it will put a smile on your face every day!!!
