What to get show wise

Well, I have about 300 dollars and I want yalls opinions on three different mods that I'm looking into. Post which you prefer and why...

1) Coilovers- I have stock 16" alloy rims with performance tires and have about a 3 inch gap in between the tires and fender.

2) 7" Flip Out LCD screen with DVD player that will go in the center console.

3) Save for 2 12" JL subs and a 1000 watt amp and mold that into fiberglass for a custom set-up trunk audio layout.

P.S. I will be showing in Hot Import Nights in April, so which of those do yall recommend and why?!

I would go for the custom audio system (number 3). Your car's hight isnt really as noticible since its black and plus custom audio enclosers look way nicer than a 1-2 inch drop.

Do coilovers, the drop looks nice, even though the car is black. Plus it'll help your handling with the performance tires.

Alright, I like the 2nd and 3rd more then I like the first. The only reason I considered getting the first was that they are adjustable. At the show I could drop it all the way, and it would look badass, but driving I can raise it back up to how it is now...
If i get the audio set up in the back, i can either go with fiberglass with a shiny paint job ($300) without speakers or even more...or I can do vinyl material for about $100. What do yall think?

Fiberglass isnt cheap. Dont forget that. I bought a fiberglass box off of someone on this site. I got a price on what it would cost me to make it brand new, almost 4 grand just for the glassing and paint. Look at my profile for pics.

My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

agree with most people here custom stereo in trunk is most dramatic and cool looking. I'm going to be building my own soon as soon as I can scrape up some more cash.

EBAY!!! LOL just kidding, I am a terrible influence. I would say definately keep saving and stick with audio. and go with lowering springs in my opinion they ride a lot nicer for the drop then some coilovers. unless you get all new suspension, then your talking in the $1400 range. Go buy some boom boom for your zoom zoom thumbsup
