I just wanted to thank you guys for being responsive and helpfull when I posted the questions about the tint. I just went to tint shop today, for 150 dollars I got 35% all the way around w/Lifetime warranty nationwide. Thanxs again!

Here is a link to my car

Great tint choice, very very nice..... 35% is perfect..... I wish I had gone with 35% on my focus when I had it, the 5% looks too dark IMO and hides the car's interior to much. Looks amazing, nice work!!

Ya, I agree. While I was at shop I saw the 5% and that was to dark. I think 25% would have been a better choice. The closer you get to my car the lighter it gets. So it looks alot better from a distance.

Looks good. I've got 35% on mine right now but I'm going to go with 5% a little later like I had on my ZX3. The sun here cooks my charcoal interior.

Pick up some springs before you get rims. A 1.5 inch drop will look good with the stock wheels until you can spring for the wheels you really want. If you go up in wheel size before lowering the ride height a bit it'll sit really high and your wheel gap will be more noticeable.

F2 has the Evotion(rebadged Vogtland) springs on sale for $115. That will give you about a 1.6" drop or the Eibach Pro-Kit runs about $200 for a 1.4"/1.5" drop.

Pro-Kit: http://f2cars.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=171

If you really want it low, the Eibach Sportlines will drop it over 2 inches if you like the slammed look.

Here's mine with the Evotion's on it. http://img234.imageshack.us/img234/5914/zx4st217do.jpg

Whatever you do, don't pick up any suspension stuff off ebay.
