Congrats if its your dream car.
I love the M3 modded, but have yet to see an r8 that has been tastefully modded in person. The modded r8s i have seen in pics have been overkill. Its such a rare car that its not a must to mod because you dont see them everyday as with other cars, and it doesnt look like anything else. Same with the GTR, gt3, etc. i do agree however that a supercharger would add some fun

I'm trying to remember if the V8 has stock exhaust valves like the V10. If so, you could open those up yourself for some more noise. Your fiance can't possibly hit you up for the $1k on that!
Enjoy it man. Look forward to the comparison.
Dang wish I would have known!
The reason for the $1k agreement with her is less about making her happy and more about keeping myself from doing anything to it. With the M, modding was like an addiction without an AA meeting to go to. The forum and meets were like the opposite of AA for the mod bug
we'll see what happens..
