Another Mod Suggestion Thread...
Alright guys my body kit is going to be ordered next week, as soon as I decide between a full Kaminari kit, or a RMM Front, RMM Sides and VS-1 Rear.

I had saved up all the money for the kit and the install, and just yesterday I banked $285 from a March Madness Pool (Yup I won the whole league), and now I need another mod. Should I...
-Save up for a Carbon Fiber Hood
-Wait until the dyno for the DC Sports Headers are released and buy that if the dynos prove worthy
-Save for Rims
-Buy a drop
-Or anything you guys can suggest...

imo, rims should always come before drop--unless you know exactly what rims/size you are getting.

I think drop should come before rims because even if you're sitting on your factory wheels, a drop will make your car look better. And since most people get 17s or 18s, a drop can pretty much compensate for either of those wheel sizes.

perhaps. its really a matter of opinion.

personally, wheels are more noticeable than a drop. also, if you know what wheels you want you can get the correct drop (half an inch makes a difference). also, if you plan on getting a body kit i recommened doing that beforehand as well.

1) body kit 2) drop(to see how close you can go so it doesn't scrape the ground) 3) Rims & tires 4) Carbon Fiber Hood *(could aslo be bought w/ body kit to make one complete body job)

I think I'm gonna do this combo... One more question.
Will my TSRM fit nicely under the Kaminari Rear?
I want no rubbing against the bumper and it needs too look like it flows well.

Also, where can I get a deal on this kit combo? I really don't wanna pay 2 shipping charges...

^^^
TSRM should fit well under the Kam rear, don't see why it wouldn't

- also, trust me, you can't get a deal on this combo anywhere. I've been looking forever it seems... Just buy the Kam kit, sell the sides, and get new RMM skirts (that's my plan)
