Tires are one of the most significant handling upgrades you can make

I think my high dollar mod will be ....

2 Day Driving Course at the BMW Performance Centre @ $3,500- next year, once I've done that who knows what else I might do

Read all about it (unless you seen it) by opening the link below my signature picture then go to post no. 55 on the last page ... Great write up by mdyaman

Tint and reflectors are all for me, I'm not a modder. That said, unless you change sizes, tires are even less of a "mod" than these two minor items.

Nope wrong. Tires have huge impact on performance. How much quicker are you on the track with tint and reflectors?

Good one, though the chatter has been about going from PS2s to Contis or the other way around so in those instances I'd say the only "mod" that matters is the driver. I'll continue to use a separate set of sticky tires in 18 for track work of which I've logged one helluva lot over the last 9 or 10 years. Anyone using the same setup for road and track, well let's just say that's not for me. Bet your colored roundel is a real seconds shaver though

AD08s are a pretty decent tire for dual duty. Fairly sticky. Unfortunatley I'm headed to the track today and its raining. The roundel is good for about 5whp, so not noticeable!

Seams to me that the higher percentage of you fellows love to mod your cars if nothing else you do love to talk about it ...

I'm happy with what the ///M Division did with this car as it is ... other then the tint and floor mats I've done nothing so far and there are no plans for the future either.

Nice, be safe out there and have fun. I've never tried that rubber but have heard good things. That said, each year I seem to get a tick slower no matter the setup. next mod- rediscover the braveness I had in my 20s

Does a tank of 100 octane count as a mod?

had a mostly wet day. was fun and always a learning experience that way. got one semi dry session at the end of the day which was sweet. i actually feel like i have more balls now. i am getting so comfortable with the dynamics of the car that i dont get that fear sensation like i initially did. 10th day this year not too bad.
