Recommendations for first mods

Purchased a 2012 white 5 speed hatchback...previous owner put in a steeda cold air intake, 18 inch sparco wheels, and HRK (unless he meant H&R) lowering springs. I like the stance and the ride as is but I know I will soon get the itch for some changes... Im just cruising so no serious performance mods yet. What else do you all think I should upgrade.

On another note can anyone chime in on HRK springs? First mods just might be a full lowering kit or some coilovers depending on the input.

id recommend an E-Focus rear motor mount, best mod you could do for the cost, redline hood strut kit, doesn't seem big but it is a huge improvement from the prop. performance wise you could do a tune, intake, exhaust. theres a million things to do shop around on here youll find it, theres a full handling package, sway bars, coilover kit if you wanna pay the money, there are aftermarket body kits for the focus to give it a sweet look, window tint, possibilities are endless

FSWerks or magnaflow cat back exhaust would go nice with your Steeda intake.

How much are you looking at spending and are you looking for a performance ish mod or an appearance mod? And definitely throw some pics up! We want to see her/him! Lol!
