what to do with $400

so i got a $400 bonus check from my new job and since the only thing i have in my civic is audio related id figured its time to get serious with it and start moding, and since im a pizza driver id figured the first thing to buy is something that would make my drives more smoother, i was thinking either Revo's Short Shift adapter or Neuspeed's Upper Strut bar...what are your guys's opinions?

smoother as in what way? I would think you meant, springs, shocks, strut bars, or sway bars.

^He's not a Vendor... Its just positive/negative feedback we all exchange with each other so you know who you can kind of trust if you buy or sell from someone here.

I would personally get the car professionally tinted and then buy a Neuspeed front upper strut bar. You might be able to get a short shifter kit in there, too, depending on how expensive the tint job it.

That's my two cents.

you know somethings wrong when you ask a bunch of people (who probably don't share the same needs as you) on what to buy next for your car.

Basically suspension drop and wheels first, but since you dont have enough for wheels, Im sure you can get them in a couple of weeks and a Neuspeed struct bar.
