sounds like hids are your first mod.

get hids, do the basic intake and exhaust.

throw rims on it, do tint, and if you dont like factory sound upgrade speakers with a sub, hopefully you'll get the Tech package (nav)

Why not be original and find something that no one has done yet to your knowledge....and show it off when done.

Standard response: Mod what ever YOU like it is YOUR car and don't let others tell you otherwise. Do not take what people say to heart not everyone will agree to the Mods you choose.

With that being said...a cheap and easy mod is...led map lights.

Hope you enjoy your car as much as we all do.

@Forte333: when telling some to HID, please tell them as well we have a HID thread that is very useful....we do not want noodile blowing a gasket. LOL

Thanks for the reply guys.

my first mod is for HID's.. now for that will i need to get a conversion kit(if thats what it is).. or should i just go to partsource/canadian tire and get the bright lights from there?

also. the dome lights, will i need to do some wiring? i'm totally new to all this so a link would be nice to get me started


Thanks!

Your first performance mod should be new rubbers!!! It's the best handling/safety upgrade! Anyhow you will change it at 15K:rolleyes:

What Matemorh is saying is that the stock rubbers (tires) on the koup are garbage, they will work ok during summer and on dry surfaces, they get slippery in rain and in the winter with snow they will get you killed. Tires will help you in most aspecs of performance.
