Wanna buy something for my car...

but I have no idea what. im not lookig to rip out any major stock components until the warranty is up, so no intakes and the like. Maybe an Optima battery? Ceramic break pads? New muffler to change the sound? Oh, I know... a huge APC sticker for my windshield! I dunno.

Any ideas?

How's about some tinted windows?
Don't see that in your current list of mods.

I just got a quote for tinting the two rear windows and the hatch for $95.

yeah, Im tinted. %35 in rear and %45 up front. But thanks for the suggestion. Ah well. Ill just hold out for some FI, or possibly save for a downpayment on a roadster. That Audi TT and Saturn Sky look mighty sweet.

I KNOW! Get a shifter..er wait, you already have that. Ok, how about a tune? No, you have that too. Crap. Well, you could always save that cash for FI later on.

Or, you could do some interior upgrades. There's an upgrade kit for the piece of plastic that surrounds the stereo and climate control stuff. It also replaces the plasticy door inserts and some other things as well. It's pretty neat. You can see wonderful things like this at this site. You can get some matching climate control knobs and a spiffy new billet lighter.

Some of the stuff is pretty cool - but the dash kit ain't cheap.

<edit>
That Saturn Sky is a sharp little car, isn't it? I have had my eye on that and the Solstice since GM announced they were making them.

RS BODY KIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWO options here if you want your foci to look like the RS

OPTION 1: Buy the oem RS quater panels, side skirts, front and rear bumpers, fog lights, turn indicators, and head lights(optional), and side markers(need with the OEM quarters) for about $6500 with the RS rims and some sweet rubber to go with em.

or

Option 2: GO to F2 and get their RS body kit that include the same front and rear bumper and side skirts, but has fender flares instead of complete quarters. the RS fogs and turn indicaters would still be needed as well as the IMHO sweet RS rims and nice rubber for about the price of option 1.

I goin with option 2 at the end of the summer, yes I know I have an SVT and the body kit is cool but i am starting to see to many now, I wanna be different so if anyone is look for a SVT later this summer, HIT ME UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An RS body kit would be cool, but to me thats like people slapping SVT logos onto a standard car with nothing to really back it up. I like the idea of a carbon fiber dash kit. Sounds like a winner! Thanks!

A good intake and a FC throttle body. Neither one alone does that much, but together the car breathes better.
