It isn't. If I wanted a car with higher performance, I'd buy a car that had higher performance. About the only thing I'd do to a new BMW performancewise would be to get the software upgraded, which is easily reversed. However, when someone does make major mechanical mods, they know their taking their cars performance and reliablity into their own hands. To a certain degree, you do this with a stereo upgrade. However, with stereos, I don't think that the owners grasp this. If the installer makes a mess of the electrical system, the (BMW) dealer isn't going to straighten it out, at least not for free. The electrical system in a modern car is very complex, and BMW goes to great lengths to make sure that it works correctly. I just can't see some guy in a little car stereo shop being able to do nearly as good a job.


How is any of this any different than all the guys on this board doing performance mods? (Which I'm not opposed to either, but that's a different subject)
