2 questions

ok, i have 2 questions:
1) i wanna lower my car, but i also wanna be able to raise it up (summer/winter) relatively easy (w/o having to take them off)...what would be good for this?

2)i'm looking at getting a tanabe exhaust/CAI, but don't know if this will be a waste with my auto, think i should just stick to looks with the auto or do a little of both perf/looks?? i am gonna be trading in my auto for a manual hopefully in 1.5 years and wanna be able to move my perf parts over if possible

thanks

coilovers are adjustable, so you can raise and lower them to your tast.. but their also expensive.

definately get exhaust... cause it looks and sounds cool.
and if you plan to show your engine get a ram Intake.

What he said ^ Coilovers is the way to go, but you'll need to get an alignment everytime you change the height. And no, exhaust & CAI is not a waste on an auto grin

If you dot like RAM and would like to go with CAI... Do not buy Injen (High rpm)...go with AEM(Low rpm)...
Injen for the auto...it's like a saddle for the cow.Looks nice but useless.

U can get coilovers but they are gonna be a waste of money...Everyone says they are gonna raise it for the winter and about 99% of people don't

I have the coilovers and to be honest i never raise mine in the winter. It can me a pain in the ass. But if you want the option of raising them the you got to get coilovers or go with an airbag suspension.

i thought i heard the Ground control Coilovers are not as hard to lower.

and do you have to get adjustable coilovers or are all of them adjustable.
