regarding the odom: wouldn't the larger rims make up for the lower profile tires? the whole wheel (rim+tire) could have 16" rims with tall tires and have the same diameter as 18" rims with low profile tires. or am i missing something?

Same goes for engine mods (gonna piss off a couple people here but oh well). If you're gonna mod the engine, do it right. Intake, exhaust is not a mod. its a ricey thing to do to just do exhaust intake. the least you should do is exhaust, intake, manifold, pulleys. if you just go exhaust intake, you're no different with your dinan exhaust and intake than the ricers with their pep boys fart can and the pep boys brand neon green intake. you both did the same thing, changed your sound without altering the performance. (exhaust/intake mods are supposed to free up air flow, but if you don't touch the manifold and add high flow cats, you're jsut wasting money. remember, a system is only as good as its weakest link. --- Go big or go home.)
i agree...and i don't. i think there is a limit to what kind of modding looks good. i personally don't think angel eyes would look good on my E30. yet i plan on rims +lower + suspension + corners + tint. just because i don't put on angel eyes doesn't mean it looks bad modded.
as far as the engine - i agree with you more on that. yet its okay to do it a little at a time. intake/exhaust should be done together, but you can add to the rest over time. just my 2 cents.
