History
Purchased in January of 2010 with 44k miles. Currently at 82k miles. I have made very subtle modifications, however I prefer to keep my cars looking nearly stock.
2000 Toyota MR2 Spyder (Red)

Modifications

Exterior
Refinished OEM wheels, replaced OEM headlamp housings with new old-stock units, and upgraded halogen bulbs to a more modern filament. Replaced marker, tail lights, brake lights, and license plate lights with LED. Added undercarriage bracing to aid in stiffening the chassis.
Audio
In the search of better sound, I completely gutted the interior, and applied Quiet Car sound dampener to all sheet metal surfaces. Replaced the OEM headunit with an upgraded OEM headunit from a Scion, which not only plugged directly into the stock harness, it also looks nearly identical, but sounds much better. Replaced OEM speakers with Infinity component speakers in stock locations, and using stock grills. Added an Orion 100w x 2 amp and associated power wiring to drive those speakers, and installed a Sound Ordnance 8" powered sub unit to fill in the lower frequencies.

It was a lot of work, but the end result has been amazing - Much better than just about any OEM system I have heard to this day! Also there is really nothing to show, as the interior appears completely stock.
