Can't even see any swirl marks!
Damn you lol

<<< nbp, but my car blings when its clean :)


Anyways, nice purchase man, your first mods should be race header, intake, motor mount inserts... you'll be amazed at the difference. Or you could lower it first, looks so much better !

A CAI is great. Any parts that you purchase now can easily be sold in the fore sale thread, so don't let future plans discourage you. A drop is nice, but don't skimp out and just get lowering springs, unless you want to blow your shocks and worsen your handling! The 05/06 exhaust is well flowing for a mild NA build up. If you're going to CAM and or add a turbo, a new exhaust will be necessary. I'd personally buy all your prospective bolt-ons from the for sale thread. An intake/header doesn't necessarily go bad after use. (As long as the header was installed in conjunction with ESMM, Torque Damper, etc.) If you haven't already noticed, the stock tires are garbage. I'd recommend doing that ASAP. I finally switched out my stock tires, and I fell in love with my car all over again. Good luck!

forgot about the for sale thread on here, but even so, I still plan on getting full coilovers to drop, then the CAI, and 3" exhaust. The tires seem fine to me..then again, im also not used to low profile tires either..since i had 33" mud tires lol I'll probably get new tires after the things listed above, along with new rims. :D
