Well, if you like the wheels on there, that's outta the question. It's got a sunroof. Awesome. Auto...eh...not to much. lol. just playin.

anyways, does the car have a drop? Let's see some pics! If not, I'd start with the Tanabe DF210's, or the Tein S-Tech's. From there, it's dependent on where you wanna go. I'll tell you RIGHT NOW, performance mods mean crap, so save your money until you need the extra 4 horses to move the box around.

welcome to the club.

the first thing i did was my rims, and thats only because i was ready for a mod, and was offered them at a very reasonable price. but the first mod i did by choice was my halo projector hearlights... quick, simple, inexpensive, and changes the look drastically... of course this is all if you like that sort of thing. i absolutely love them. you have rims... is it dropped? it makes a very big difference in appearance and also inexpensive and VERY easy to do. you must be a lucky one. Boobmox didnt harrass you right off the batt for some pics... thanks for picking up the tail Ketchup! my turn, SO GET SOME PICS UP ALREADY!!!! :p

Welcome to the club! 1st mod/must - Viper alarm
I bought the 791xv for around 175 and installed it in a few long hours, but before I put anything of value on I must have an alarm. That and I love starting it up in the morning from my room and letting it warm up before I leave. I love remote start!

Welcome to ClubxB

Yet again another request for ‘pics. :)

If the first owner had a sunroof put in they probably did other things. Don’t forget to post a shot of under the hood and of the back showing tails, spoiler (if its there) and the exhaust.

Welcome to the family! These little boxes are very habit forming - lotsa fun.

Those wheels look great on that color box. :)

Hello and welcome -- Looks like the 1st mod should be to lower that bad boy :)

‘Gotta agree with the masses,

dropping it a few inches would look good.

That said, I would be careful about doing any stance changes with the sunroof.

I read somewhere about a guy having drainage issues where water pooled back in the headliner. My personal guess is that as long as the back end is a touch lower than the front it shouldn’t be an issue. But that’s just a guess; anyone with more experience feel free to chime in. Plus that other guy may have just had a crappy installer.

Welcome again!

Now lets see what you’ve got under the hood. . . :p
