I'm not saying to leave. I'm just saying it's kind of odd that you post in this particular thread.

I know. That's why I'm not saying you should leave. I used to be in your shoes. Had an M3 before my 330. Switched, but I like the E46F community better. Especially DMAX

Not sure how I feel about 19's... I can get rid of the chrome easily enough though. $200 for the set.

No body kit on my car Johnny Ragtop though plenty of nice ones out there. Not that one though those fender flares are awful. I've got an oem aero package (sold as touring package in Eu) that I've been painting but I'm sure even that's too much flag for your bland mid-Texas tastes.

A ragtop, lol. Does your mom drive it too?
