New 05 Cobalt Coupe

it's actually not new but has new tires, brakes, paint, and battery that i bought for 5600 ( 77,000 miles) .....I'm wondering what u think i should get for my first mod, today i'm buying window tint 25%, headlight covers, and probually some black spray paint and lucas stuff that keeps it running good.

I wana get something for christmas around $300 or lower...
should it be..
*complete sound system (speakers, amp, ect)
*lowering kit
*whatever, or should i just save up for some rims or something more expensive

what ever you think would be best


I'm mainly intersted in looks and sound but not too big about racing but i would like a little quicker acceleration, torque, horse power ......

thanks

Yeah...you won't get much for 300 bucks system-wise unless you're shopping at Wal-Mart,lol. Go for lowering springs or a cold air intake.

Mods: debaged, carbon fiber hood, painted interior trim, lowered

First off; welcome! And I'd go with lowering springs before wheels. And like they said, you're not gonna get much of a system for 3 bills. Plus springs aren't really too expensive, so you'll Polly have a little cash left over.

2006 LS coupe, tint, 18'' DR9 wheels, Eibach Sportlines, 12'' rockford sub w/600w rockford comp amp, alarm and so much more to come.
