I do a bit of both, but since my car is kinda slow to start with (2.5L with slushbox), I do more for cosmetics.

the question is how much go could you possibly have with a 323 when compared to the top of the line e46, the m3? thats right, little to none. thats why its all show for my 323ci.

As I have stated on numerous occasions, I am an admitted attention wh0re.

So, for me, mostly SHOW mixed with a little "Go."
(see sig)

I was actually all "SHOW" in the beginning, you b!tches made me get what little extra GO I have thus far

The way I see it, BMW's already given me enough GO by compressing and tuning the hell outta these M54's (and S54's) we got. I don't think that I could really claim to be about "GO" unless I supercharged.

Actually... BMW engines aren't that highly compressed.

Show and go. But I have pumped more money into show.

Intake, exhaust, pulleys, SW, springs and sways are the go part.
Wheels are a bit of both.
The interior (2-tone blk on blk leather and ballistic nylon) the soundsystem (full 5.1 soldy surround with DVD kicking out about 1000+watts. It'll make your bleed I you really want it to.) and the interior lighting (http://www.iceled.co.uk) Next mods are all body (mirrors, sideskirts, rear valance and shave the hood and trunk with some ghost graphics but thats next year...gotta save up some more cash.)

See sig.

I think all the guys on here who spend thousands on performance and suspension mods only to drive around town is throwing money away.
