Plan my mods

2008 Sedan Auto
Buying a new car is out of the question
Planning 17x8-9 wheels
Nothing that can't be removed for warranty claims :)

Budget is $3-4k


Go lol



PS what color wheels? Silver car and I want Team Dynamics 1s or 1.2s. White Gold and Black are on my mind but anyone have another idea?


Thanks all!

I saw white wheels similar to those on a tC today and it looked great. As for other cheap mods, you could always tint windows/lights/possibly a lowering of sorts.

I should say, performance wise stock lol I have tint and projector lights. Though I am considering a retrofit. And lowering is definitely in the cards, I want this to be a little canyon carving rocket

OK to narrow this down, I want the most performance I can that's non-turbo. I want intake, header, exhaust, and a tune. And I would like coilovers or a koni yellow/h&r race set up. What would you guys do to make this as fast in a canyon as possible?
