Summer mods

Well guys i know a lot of you had some summer mods in mind. Just wanted to know how many mods you were able to complete since it's the end of summer already. I had plans for an oil cooler, Carbon Fiber Hood, new wheels, and springs. what i got was some Tein springs and Hotchkis sways. 1 of 4 ain't bad plus the sways were and unexpected mod but good none the less. Sucks though, that i can't really tell the difference with the sways since i have stock tires (Dunlop SP sport 4000). Well on normal turns i do notice that there's less body roll, but in crazy turns i still lose grip due to my tires. you could have the best suspension setup but without grippy tires your suspension won't be at full use. But it's been a good summer, i learned a lot about my car, mechanical knowledge and myself. now i have rearranged my mods list, and know now what i really want and need. my next mod will be new wheels, and Trust me they'll be good!! thumbsup thumbsup

I did some of my summer mods. I got some springs, shocks, and a new system, I also got a strut bar and did some interior mods. So I did pretty well. Still more to go.
