Items marked with a * are an addition, as opposed to an upgrade on a factory install item.
The above list may sound like it contradicts the following; - I've always been one who is resistant to making permanent modification to something that can't be easily undone, I try to do improvements on two ways. First, if it's of a permanent nature, make it look factory installed. For other, more personal modifications or additions, make it removable and install it in a manner that it will leave little or no evidence that it was there. As an example: The His and Hers bulletin boards are installed over the top of the factory installed mirrors on either side of the headboard. I chose places to install small mounting screws that won't be seen when removed, or can be filled with a dab of wood putty.
