money burns a hole in my pocket, and i just like to throw it away anyways cause thats me, thats what i do. so0o0o0o0 what should i buy next for my car. ill make a list of what i already have, besides turbo which is coming in april....what else is there??

this is the list of parts i have, any suggestions for anything else?
rims
tires
eibachs
body kit
spoiler
shark fin ant
short shifter
hid
stage 3 lights
yellow fogs
strut bar
under car lights
led scuff plates
tint

i think thats it... please dont say exhuast or CAI, cause the exhaust is with the turbo, and i dont need CAI if i have a turbo (some people are dumb and dont even know what CAI is and still tell me to get it) lol

what else is there????? im thinking a full audio upgrade, headunit, speakers, custom box in the trunk. i mean, i think thats it! they dont make anything else for this car ::sigh:: :(

You already basically mentioned it but I would say a double din nav and an audio upgrade if ur into that stuff but other then that I think a must have is one of those 10$ chips on eBay that gets u 50hp. Obv that's a must :/

CF hood if you wanna go that route, how about accent pieces in the car. Interior lighting, new horn, maybe two tone horn, or a Dixie horn haha( sorry that's my VA coming out)

The first mod that I opted for was audio. The car didn't have 1000km before i dropped my thumper in the boot. Depending on what kind of setup you like, you don't necessarily need to swap everything out. Now a double din would be pretty sweet, but if all you want is to spice up the sound quality and get a few looks then the head unit and a sub is all you need. I run my Orion off the stock head and speakers and the speakers keep up quite well... And I like my music loud...

im not to fond of the CF hood, kind looks like i got into an acident and found a hood at the junk yard and i dnt have enough money to have it painted! lol

my goal is to mod the sh*t out of my car, but make it look like it came like that from the dealer! thats a true mod, so nothing outragious, well except for the million color led kit underneath the car! lmao
