Ok need help deciding...
I want to get ONE major mod for my car soon, by major I mean 200+ dollars (yeah i'm cheap).
SO, should I get :
Injen CAI Red with splash guard
Tinted windows
APR front strut bar

I've been going around in circles with this for a week now. They all have their attractive qualities. Is the CAI really worth it? The APR strut bar? Any opinions are welcome.

Get either the

CAI : If your looking for power

Tint : If your looking for looks and a cooler car in the summer months

APR : don't get this.

I say go for some quality tint ... it better in the long run. You can get a CAI anytime but the tint will have more benefits in the summer. grin
