    this is my general feeling as well, do i want to mod and gain some extra power + styling or just save the money for something better in a year or 2 time. All depends how long you won't to keep the car for, as your mods will be worth very little when you sell.

    i would mod it, keep it simple though. Lowered, few engine bits, maybe a couple of interior bits. ..........I know it starts as just lowering and you end up getting a Veccy VXR lump or something though lol, just need to know when to stop.

    i think i want lowering

    Just every other car i have owned i have poured so much in and got nowt back, so do i want ot bother this time

    Lowering i however feel is a must as the car sits too high as stock.

    Even if you dont wanna mod it... you will... thats what happens when you join AS....

    Get some pics up and im sure you'll get some suggestions.

    The only mods I have done are the de-restrict, new wheels, grill, debadge and arm-rest... In my opinion, the best mod you can do it give the car a bloody good clean.... for some reason, you'll think that you car drives and performs better when its nice and shiney....confidence thing i guess. LOL

    Will be lowering soon and possibly some sharkeyes and HID for the long dark winter!!!

    Simpley caring for your car will mean you want the best for it, this will result in a set of alloys, lowering, a nice stereo..... it is a slippery slope

    if you plan on changing your car within a year dont mod it...if you plan on settling down with her then go for it

    some nice subtle and not too expensive mods can go very far
