    Extreme customization? Didn't get too extreme for me. Here's the most I've done on my own stuff:

    1992 Ford Escort:

    Summit racing stickers EVERYWHERE +20HP
    dash mounted Sunpro tach +15HP
    empty coffee can tack welded to tailpipe - INSTAFAST
    black racing stripes - MOAR HP
    Rear springs were broken when I purchased it. Took some out of an available Tracer wagon, which (unintensionally) slightly raised the ride height in the rear for that awesome dragster look.

    Extreme customizing:
    Window tinting, when I was in the Sunshine State.
    There is absolutely no customization or modification to my current car, STS. Customization is not my cup of tea!

    Two Saab Club of North America window stickers. They allow me to take off like a Viggen fighter jet.

    Re: whats the most extrem customizing you did to a vehicle you have owned

    As for me...

    Car club decals on the side windows add +10hp each.
    A wagon decal on my rear window makes +20
    A decal for my college campus, however, subtracts 15.

    But none of that matters, because my hood is a chalkboard, and I can draw as much horsepower as I want on it.

    In the realm of legitimate customization though...

    My windows are tinted quite dark (Tint Nazi's go away. There's a lot of sun in Florida, dammit.)
    Aftermarket stereo and all new speakers (speakers were bought Saturday. )
    Smoothie hubcaps are on their way.
    I have a center console waiting to go in, all I need is a passenger seat skin that matches my current color and pattern...
    I just bought a new steering wheel for it because I hate my current one (No, it's not some ricer GT wheel. I'm not lame like that)
    Previous owner had the exhaust done so I can't take credit for that, but I may re-do it in the future.

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    Chad: What's the BG product you said was good for quieting top-end ticking and clatter?

    Re: whats the most extrem customizing you did to a vehicle you have owned

    Current car holds the title with a relatively short list of cosmetic stuff:

    -M3 aluminum dead pedal
    -BMW Performance Alcantara shift knob + boot
    -Black chrome M3 edition kidneys
    -Painted black lower mesh grilles
    -CCA sticker

    Looking to buy a new exhaust system around next month, after that I have a lot more planned (front aero lip, M3 decklid spoiler, M sport wheel, oil cooler, upgraded radiator, upgraded intercooler, catless downpipes, oil catch can, LSD... ).

    I would argue that for the current generation, the 335 is a better all-around car than the M3.
