Re: Need help?

Well, what do you want from the car? Performance? Audio? Comfort? Cosmetic mods?

Re: Need help?

Lip Kit, Tint, Fog Lights, Leather RSX Seats, Side Markers, Upgraded Suspension (helps handling of course, but also looks mean), Rims, HID Headlights... just to name a few.

Do some research and look up as many sites as you can that sell aftermarket parts (starting with the great deals on this site, of course). Good job not going for increased HP or building up the engine, though. It's possible but, in my opinion, not worth the time, trouble, money, or anything for how little the gains are.

Good luck and for the love of god, don't rice it out : )

Re: Need help?

Thanks alot man
ok got a few questions about these....if lowering the car how much is enough to make it look good but not stupid, and does my insurer need to know about any of these?
Also do you have any good website to search for parts....lights, springs, etc...
Thanks again

Re: Need help?

All modifications do not need insurance approval, however, they also will not be covered

Lowering: Coil Overs (can sub out springs), Struts, Camber Kit (I think that's it? $800) They're adjustable so when it's nice weather you can ride low, bad weather ride higher... Do some research on this before you do it. For the research go to google, type in jfgi and hit the "I'm feeling lucky" button... you can find parts there too...

Do your research on the forum. Pretty much any questions you have (including the opening one in this thread) can be found with the search button.
