Everyone will probably say the same thing. If you want performance then you need to go with swap, turbo, or new car.

search around.

please search around.

don’t ask people what to buy with your money.

to quote "Telly" (another 7th gen member) "asking some one else what I should buy for my car next is like asking a complete stranger what clothes should I where the next day."

Good luck! ( I hope that didnt come off d*ckish)

I for 500$ you can ver well buy a pro-kit spring, the brand name is something like eibach. (I spell it wrong)

It should be the best mod for 500$.
