Ok it's like this.. When I got my car it was brand new(1997).. I have been going back n forth to school, working etc.. so I have not had the time to do much to my car. Now that I am just working and all of my bills are up to date I can start playing around with my ride. I have 2,400 to spend on my ride but I don't have a clue on what I should do to my car. A lot of people in this club talks about more HP.. I am satisfied with what I have although at times my car can be rather slow but it's cool. Give me some ideas people or should I just keep it stock? My car is Black, 4 door EX, My windows are already tinted, I have a spoiler.. all factory and just str8 up basic.. One thing I will do and always wanted to do is add a banner but never knew what I should put so give me some ideas on that too.

What I would do with 2400 is rims and tires, lower it, exhaust, tint, and some audio upgrades or you could do without the audio and tint and check out how much body kits go for but I would think the installation and painting would take you over your limit.

I think it's just a matter of taste. If you're happy with the power, keep it and just do things to improve the quality of the car. Better tires? A better sounding stereo? If you want a little more power add some bolt ons like a Cold Air Intake or a free flow exhaust. Are looks your thing? you might want to add a front lip or even a body kit. some new fog lights? new suspension package or lower it? As for a banner, if you really want to do that go for it. do something that's personal to you and not to anyone else cuz hey its your car. Often people say "you should do THIS or THAT to my car." I listen to their ideas, but I do what i like to my car because it's mine and i like it that way.

if looks are what you want, get whatever looks good. if performance is what you want, there are 2 basic routes to go with- turbo or swap. either one will eat up your budget, but you will have a more enjoyable car to drive.

Thanks for the info.. please keep the ideas coming. At the moment my car is at Honda getting my factory alarm checked because it has been acting up. I made an appointment at this place called BIG BOY TOYS in Queens to bring my car in this Thursday. This week I am having the clear tail lights put on, a sound system upgrade (Better speakers, Sub, and an amp).. Someone was telling me that I should buy a new radio because my factory radio would not sound all that good with the new upgrade equipment.. how true is that? Next week I will be doing more stuff to my car.. I just don't know what but it all depends on how much money I have left over. Once again thanks and continue looking out.

if your upgrading everything else, you need a good deck for good sound. heres the best way to figure it- your system will only sound as good as its weakest link. you could have the best speakers in the world, but if your runnin a crappy stock deck they are still gonna sound like crap. ditto subs, you can run massive, nasty subs but if you run a weak amp, they will sound crappy. you are going to want to match everything up with your budget and your goals.

Whoa I overlooked that she had tint so you come back with a smart ass comment like that. While I was finishing up school you were still sucking on your mammas *******. Take your smart ass comments elsewhere. I guess I'll go back to ephatch.com where people are more forgiving and alot less anal.
