I just recently bought my first car as well... I'm a little more fortunate though, I'm 19 and I make $35,000 a year, but they still wouldn't put me in a new one... So I got a 2003 Red SE... Right now I'm just putting in your run-of-the-mill 700 watt amp and 10 inch sub... but I think Rims are gonna cost me a buttload, so i'll have to wait :/


Take some pics as your customizing your beast, we'll compare :)


Congratz and good luck!
