Ok guys...errr...and gals... I need your help. I have an extra 400-500 bucks that I need to spend. The problem is...I don't know what to spend it on...argh...yes...it's very fustrating. This is what I have in mind... either put that down on some new rims (I am going to get Enkei Shutokos....you can see them on my site...they are badass), maybe paint my interior (you know...the whole white deal....ya...), throw on a Auto-CAI from kore, or get my vinyl work done. I'm trying to decide on which one of those to go with...unless you guys have any other suggestions... The vinyl work is a complete custom job by a company called TKW Graphix. If you check out my site you will see my whole thing with them. Anyways, they gave me two quotes...a low end quote, and a high end quote...the work would be no more than about $900 bucks at the MAX, so it will probablly end up being a little bit less. So please....gimmie some suggestions guys... I WAS leaning towards the CAI, but no I am swaying towards the rims...cause the just look sweet...and I hate my stock rims... HELP! Thanks in advance!

I'd recommend the CAI and painting the interior pieces <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>. Then you'd have a little growl to back up the rims, and you'd have the pieces white and ready for the vinyl.

I'd say RIMS! The Tibs are fast enough as it is - stock... unless you race everyday. I would rather separate my ride from the other Tibs with some BADASSS RIMS first and get the CAI later. As for the interior vinyl... I wouln't go there, I like the interior look already.

I'd go for the rims... you've already done some engine work with the detailing, and the rims would help to make the car not look so stock... That's what I'm saving for... I need rims like a bitch...

Well...you could always keep your car a total sleeper, and buy a nitrous kit. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> Then ricers everywhere in your town would have complete fear on racing you. <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

On that note, a good investment as well would be a Shark Racing short shifter.

Oh yeah, and I'll take your stock rims off yours hands since you hate them so much <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>.

My Accent would look good with a set of 15" Tibby wheels.

Air suspension is a big modification. Besides....$5-600 will only be enough to maybe get half the kit. <img src=icon_smile_shy.gif border=0 align=middle> Here's how I look at it....you have about 600 Benji's to spend. Go to www.ppsonline.net and buy a set of lowering springs for like 150 bux. Then take the rest and put it down on a good set of rims. Then when you get another 300 bux or so, make yourself a custom a CAI, get some SR clear corners, go back to PPS Online and buy a strut brace for $45, maybe a universal muffler, etc....

I would just shop around and try to throw your money out in every direction possible. <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

Bah...I don't want to get quantity...and want quality. It's not like this is a once in a lifetime chunk of money. This is just the next months amount that I can spend. I would rather put better quality on, and spread out what I get over time. PS I was kidding about the air rods...although I will probablly get them down the line...just not right now...
