What small mods made the biggest improvement?

1...Bluetooth stereo. Your entire library right there, wireless.

2...Velcro stick down pads under floor mats. Pads welded in place. Great fix.

3...Rattle patrol. Not a sound. Silent.

Yous?

1. New headunit with bluetooth streaming, now I can enjoy modern connectivity in my old Boxster that some very new cars don't even have.

2. HID Retrofit, dramatically improved the look and night time driving performance, this mod is not very small, but still small compared to many others.

I'm sure my couplings are leaking. Great mod, great sound.

The UD pulley actually gave me HP I could feel.

I had it done by www.carsdream.com in Poland. Here is a thread I started on Rennlist when I had it done with photos comparing the old one and the new one. It cost me about $225 back in April 2011.
