Are you into more show or go?
 
Just wondering what kind of mods you guys prioritize: performance mods or cosmetic?

DiscoStu 05-26-2004 01:29 AM

I'm into both.

I started with cosmetic, now that thats near complete, I am going to work on performance..

Presns323i 05-26-2004 01:42 AM

well, i have an auto 323 with almost 80k miles.
my car is slow, not a manual, and too many miles for a s/c or anything.
ive given up on go, id hate to spend a ton of money to get 20 more hp, and then get burned by a stock wrx or something.

now... if i had a manual 330..... :drool:

I'm 50-50 on this one.

I do the compulsory mods for both sides :D I have CAI, pulleys, exhaust, coils and struts for performance, and I have front add-on, roof and trunk spoilers for aesthetics. And lil bits and pieces like pedals, interior trims, painted mouldings and grill covers.

If I had the money, I would also spend for engine performance. I got a wife and kids, so they are my priority. Right now, I just purchased from e-bay some ACS replica foot pedals and hand brake. I also purchase a CF lip spoiler that only cost $85.00. Next year, I will be buying some rims. So, you could say that I am more of a show. Well, got make the car look good right.

The only exterior mod I did was clears. Rest is under the hood, or inside. I like having a sleeper...

xS3x 05-26-2004 06:00 AM

i do a little bit of both :D

bobm3 05-26-2004 06:10 AM

i am into both
 
i have the usually show mod's and i guess the usually go mod's. but you can only go so far with the perf. mod's to. because they are very expensive.
geting into show mod's again but not to crazy compare to some of the heavy hiters in the forum............

I like to keep my car stock looking, I prefer the clean - sleeper look. 90% of my mods are under the hood :thumbup:

i have a 323 and dont want to throw an SC in there...soooo

I'm around 50/50, little bit of everything.

What qualifies as Go rather than Show other than serious engine work or a SC? Intake, exhaust, coilover, BBK and strut bars are basically Show aren't they? They offer little performance gains to these cars. What's everyone's opinion since most voted for both Show and Go so far?

I admit when I started I went more for the show, but that is because it gets a little bit more satisfaction quickly. Now I am focusing on the driving dynamics of my car and looking for more go. Dumped the Eibachs for ZHP setup to get a more balanced ride, changing the sways, working on intake and exhaust, and hopefully and SC. So I say its balanced just at different times.

I would say those mods you mentioned are dual purpose - both show and go. Although an intake would be more 'go' cuz no one will see it unless you pop the hood.

Show. I can't handle speeds faster than 70MPH. :D :D

A little of both sounds right for me. :woot:

Green*envy 09-16-2004 11:13 PM

Both; there can be no go without show. :shhh:

BMW330xi01 09-16-2004 11:37 PM

im into BOTH but i just started mods recently on my 330xi and i already got 68K miles on it so major engine mods liek a SC might not be in my mind set but when i get my M3 next year its ALL engine 1st then looks hell body kit is slick as it is

NICEBIMMER 09-16-2004 11:42 PM

Deff BOTH ...
