My Bipolar BMW Personality

Iíve loved modíing since my first car. Squeezing more horsepower and handling from a vehicle has been in my familyís DNA for three generations. I am blessed that I have a Wife that fully understands. Each Christmas she kindly asks for my wish list and it usually means calling Ilia at iND. I dream about the next mods and how much faster it will make me on the track. Horsepower and handling are everything. I have no idea what my average gas mileage is in my M3 and I donít care.

I also drive a completely stock 528xi. No mods, not even an air filter. After a long trip I actually get excited about achieving an average 29 MPG! I enjoy the comfortable seats and drive slowly in hopes to break the elusive average 30+ MPG on a tank full of gas.

My Wife just politely laughs and says she is pleased I am happy.

I know, I am nuts but are there any others here afflicted?

I can tell you that I am no different from you. I have two completely different bimmers and I appreciate them for what they are. The most serious mod on my X5 is all weather rubber mats. My M3 is a totally different story, I have the mod fever as lots of others on this board. Yesterday I received my Arai GP5w helmet and setup brake upgrade appointment.
I am glad your wife is so understanding, mine doesnt mind for the most part, my only dilema is how to get the exhaust "approved"... LOL. I think I am just gonna do the OEM exhaust mod for now
