Opinions on what to start saving up for...

Ok here are the most recent pics of my car (camera phone but not too bad)










first things first, i will never lower this car because there are alot of roads here where my bumper already hits, and the parking garages at school are pretty steep (sometimes rub the front on the ground)


Now, in my mind i have 3 options... Save up and buy (piece by piece) side skirts (undecided on type), a rear bumper (svt probably), and a front bumper (F2 RS). Or instead of wasting about $1500 on body accessories, save that $1500 and keep saving for the next 3 years and when my warranty is up, buy the turbo kit...

or just save the money and buy a new car in 2009-2010.... (probably a used camaro, or bmw)

I would imagine the F2 bumper to be lower to the ground than what you already have. Rule that one out.

the f2 sits pretty low, but id say itd be within a inch of a stock bumper with lip, also i dont see why you couldnt drop your car, i live in a very hilly area and did the ford racing drop like 1.6 inch drop and i dont hit any hills, just a few very steep hills, greater then 50 degrees\
i say get a cai if yo have none exhaust sts, paint headlights, debadge

I'd just do some simple mods, intake exhaust etc, keep the car runnin good and when you get out of college sell it for something else. Unless you are dead set on having a turbo'ed focus.
