i'd say drop it(the lower the better IMO), get rims, then get an exhaust. That covers the looks of the car, then from there if you want performance CAI, header, etc. do your research. Dont go ricing it with altezzas, huge spoiler, fart cans, or cheesy stickers

this is just my opinion no means to offend anyone with altezzas, huge spoiler, fart cans, or cheesy stickers

i was think that, but need to get rim first to decide how much to drop it, any recomendations on the best drop suspension? i wont go more than 2'' and as for performance im researching wich intake to get, some poeple say the svt box with K@n panel filter is better than a cai, but where i live is always hotter than 85 degrees out.

well go with Eibach Sportline Springs.. nice 2" drop.....

go with a full long tube CAI can't get coler air without an intercooler... (watch out for deep puddles tho, or get a bypass valve)

CATIA is a dirty tramp, until you figure out its sweet spots, and how to make it moan. Then its easy as apple pie on a fall afternoon.
