Depends on what you are looking for and your other mods. You want it all to flow, so go with what flows best. For me, I need a drop and I like the Invader Carbon Fiber Hood.

I think it is best to start with the more expensive stuff. There will always be little things to buy and you will never be able to save up your money. But if you want the suspension upgrades more than anything go with that.
By buying the more expensive thing, you can buy each little thing as you get the money for them. If you buy all the little things, you have to save and hold on to your money, which is very difficult to do.
