Also, +1 on the Toyobaru. I miss my wrx and my Evo. But I'm probably gonna buy a fit for my second car.

The forums made me want to mod, the meets and shows drove me away from it. Now I want to get a new car, spec'd to my liking, and just leave it that way. Photoshop does wonders to a horribly-modded car.

that was the idea... but i met my wife 2 weeks after i bought the car, so it never got used.

my previous GF said "if you get a BMW i'm outta here" i said "is it that easy, i should have bought it sooner" (she was BAT SH!T crazy)

Well, when I buy my next BMW, it will be done exactly to my liking, and of course through European Delivery.

Basically, I want a bespoke car, "factory modded" if you will i.e., Individual.
