No suspension plans as of now. I love love love low cars this one however is going to have the stock suspension for a while if not forever. If I get a higher paying job though ya never know.

Well that's $1000 worth of miles. At $3.95 a gallon, and 33mpg combined (rating for 1.4T/M6 sonic).

1000/3.95 = 253.16 gallons of gas

253.16 x 33mpg = 8354.43 miles.

So in closing, $1k worth of miles is 8,354.43 miles.

Jordan, I found some orange LEDs rated higher than others in terms of voltage.

I was also looking at switches and I *think* I might be able to do something to make red work also, but it would be hit or miss haha. I can do them, then I'd need to slap the buttons on your car and see if it works. Deal?

Or white? White would look good with the comp orange!

Green would be easy as it operates at same voltage as the Blue, UV, and white!
