BMW 2002 Modifications – What Are Your Best Tips?

I added a poll to the site a while ago posing the question how BMW 2002 enthusiast prefer their ride – From full EOM stock to Fully modified. Here are the results.

BMW 2002: Stock or Modified?
Stock (the way BMW designers intended)
30%
233
Slightly Modified (I prefer some custom upgrades)
53%
409
Heavily Modified (Can't race no other way)
5%

Please comment your thoughts on what you feel are the best modifications a BMW owner can make to their BMW 2002.

It can be anything based on cost (best bang for the buck), improving performance or exterior, or a better daily driver experience.

If there’s an article of the site that matches a recommendation, feel free to link to it – or link to any other sources you think will help others.

I greatly appreciate everyone who took part in the poll – it’s still running.

Happy driving!
