Your list is looking good. I don't know all your mods now. I know oyu have a kit, so the spoiler would be good.

- New seats (this is what I would get)
- Maybe more suspnesion than just coilovers
- definitely wheels
- If you get Hood spoilers definitely get a raised scoop
- Sound system, go for it
- Clutch and flywheel (this is what I would get)
- Maybe some window tint
- Maye some bigger injectors
- Short shifter
- Neons (this is what I would get)

Don't do a color scheme on the exterior. Your car will look really clean if you leave it all the same.

your list looks pretty good! I don't think I can think of anything else except a really nice sound system and wheels.

JD, I guess it all depends on what you are looking for. If you want appearance, handling, performance and so forth.

putting that much into appearance is a waste of money if you don't have the performance to back it up IMHO..

IF no turbo though.. I would do a whole custom interior (like the badass white/green in the gallery, only not the same colors).. and match it with a fiberglas custom molded sub/amp/neon box in the trunk (estimate for the man hours was around $1500 to redo the subs in my trunk with a BADASS custom molded fiberglass design). remove your glove box and replace with a PS2 and add some LCDs to your custom center console.. That would be a good way to blow 5K IMO.

With 5K buy a awesome stereo system that would dominate all others! Good rims and tires are always a favorite. Also, get some sweet racing seats (like the Sparco Torinos), and sweet paint job and neons would let everyone know your comin.

By the way what did you tell the bank this loan was for?

wow, 5k on looks and not performance mods? not the way i'd go imho. but hey, whatever floats your boat. your car looks pretty sweet. i'd go with the raised hoodscoop & carbon fiber Hood (matches your kit), different wing (i wouldn't go touring style but that's me), 18" or 19" rims, tinted windows, at least coilovers (then eventually sway bars, camber kit, strut bars and bushings; 1.0g on skidpad baby! goodjob), racing seats, and of course the stereo (that in itself can eat up the 5k). good luck thumbsup

A perosnal loan? The interest rate on that is going to be like 18%. Thats a lot of extra money to just change the look of a car.

Personal loan interest rate is usually very high. We almost had to take it out on my carb ecause in order for me to get he loan I needed the title problem is the guy who owned the car hand't payed it off yet so didn't have the title. So we tried the personal loan route until my dad found out loaned me them oney till I got the title and was able to take a car loan out. BUt even for me when I got approved instantly the rate was 18%.
