    Mechanically my GD1 Honda Jazz 1.3S (a.k.a. the Fit) is still stock. I've been taking it to trackdays for three years now, developing my skill and trying to figure out what the car's strengths and weaknesses are, and I've conclulded the car can definitely handle more power and stiffer front suspension.

    Unfortunately the L13A3 engine just doesn't lend itself well to power adders.

    Current mods
    - SSR Type-M semi-solid-forged wheels, 15x6.5
    - Kumho Ecsta SPT tires, 195/55R15 85V
    - Kyo-Ei 17mm steel lugnuts
    - Recaro SRD seats, BRIDE RO-type seat rails
    - Momo Fighter 350mm steering wheel
    - Pioneer DEH-P7950UB USB-/iPod-capable head unit
    - rear LED taillights
    - GD3 Fit/Jazz 1.5 VTEC rear bumper and wing
    - Bosch Windtone fanfare-type horn

    Old mods
    - Rota Circuit 10 cast wheels, 16x7.0
    - Bridgestone Potenza S-02 Pole Position tires, 205/45R16
    - Toyo Proxes4 all-season tires, 205/45R16 88W
    - DIY white CCFL front footwell lighting
    - Kyo-Ei 21mm steel lugnuts
    - Work RS 21mm aluminum lugnuts

    This is how my car Aibo looks now:

    No reason to upgrade to the 9" until around 800 to the wheels. The one I have built now will be fine to 700.

    Yeah I figured the 8.8 would be fine as its a strong axle, just curious as to what level the 9in starts looking like a good option.

    Besides a replacement headunit my Highlander is stock. Its a fwd suv, there is nothing worthwhile to do to it, at least in my opinion.

    Next car (335i conv) will have some. Namely, JB4 chip (because it makes the gauges do cool things), a chip that messed with the roof (because its a convertible), and a 318d badge (because I can).

    Already have the JB4 chip since there was a sale, even though the purchase of the 335i is still a while off. Thats how I roll.
