Got my windows tinted 15% all around. Now I am trying to figure out what to do next. I know for a fact once tax return hits.... it will be new wheels, tires, shocks/struts, and lowering springs.




Here are the wheels I am looking at getting:

Decided to try something out since I don't ever see it. Here are the results. Still haven't had it on but through the nights, so as the days go on, I will see if its something I want to make permanent. If I don't like it, I will be going back to black, but have a paint shop do it. opinions?

So over veterans day, since I had the day off, I decided to remove all plasti dip. It took a couple hours but worth it IMO. No more plasti dip in my future. Time for real mods. If I don't have money for it, then Im going to save up. starting the road of doing things the right way and not just temporary fixes to look good.

Cool beans!

I think I like your car better with the black grill. Those wheels you're looking at would be really nice though. You should go with those and lower it to get started! Think about getting them in 17" or 18" instead of stock size. I think bigger wheels look pretty nice on our cars. There's a relevant thread going on right now.

The only two size options available are 17 and 18. So might as well pay the extra 10 bucks per wheel and get the 18s. But that was my plan. Get new wheels/tires and then buy some coilovers.

Bought a shorty antenna. Had tons of problems trying to take it off. It broke off the clip in the trunk but I ended up making it work. Looks better IMO. Currently waiting on a quote
For powder coating my wheels black. Then I just need to buy lowering springs and fe5 struts.
