Modification List

I've had my car for a year now and I love it. I have big plans as to what I want to do, but money will be the deciding factor for everything. I already have CAI and exhaust. As for appearance, tires and rims will be next. I'm thinking after the t/r's, I should do a body kit followed by the suspension so I don't drop it too much. After that, I'll worry about all the little mod's that don't really affect anything other than the wow factor. Would that be a good order to go with, or does anyone have any suggestions that would work better, and eliminate any prolems that could occur?

Sounds like a plan. Get all the big and expensive things out of the way. Then finish off with acc.

I would get the Rims/Tires and Suspension at the same time. Then decide if you want to go with a body kit right away or purchase little things here and there before finishing it off with the kit.

sounds good, definitely a drop is needed next

doesn't hurt to do the "little mods" in between the wait for the "big mods" - many people start painting the brake calipers or drums, dash, engine plastics... add seatbelt pads, floor mats, bulbs, tint, gauges, etc... cool

Thanks for the ideas. My thoughts were this: I know 18's will fit on our car, so that's no big deal. I figured if I put the body kit on next, it will be easier to judge how far I can safely lower the car without bottoming out. As for the little things, I'll just throw them in whenever in no particular order.
