Thought I would throw this out and see what kind of feedback I get. I'm not big on customizing, but....
If I were going to spend an addtional $2000 in aftermarket options, what do you guys recommend.

I am getting Pure, Sand leather, Polished wheels, $195 stereo option, ABS, Limited slip, AC, convenience pack, power pack, mats... I think that's it.

I'm thinking (round numbers)
Splash guards - $100
Dual center line rally stripes - black - Installed $400 (wag)
Cold Air Intake and Exhaust - $1200? I think that's right
Tonneau Cover (for colder weather driving, the cover will keep the heat in better!! $300.

Comments?

Hi Deluke - Do you like the Tonneau cover? Do you have a pic of your car with the splashguards? Thanks for the post!

Really haven't used it yet, it's more for spring. My husband say's it's to cold to put the top down, and I can't drive it till spring. I don't have a picture of the car either, but the splash guards are great and I like the cat back.

??? Don't understand.
Did you notice much difference in performance with the catback or just a little better exhaust tone?

She recently had surgery, I believe!
:blush: Sorry - Hope everything is going OK :blush:
I suppose I'll go see someone about having my foot taken out of my mouth. :(

I believe she's recovering nicely, and I don't think you have your foot in your mouth. There's no reason why you should necessarily know that, and the only reason that I do is because I can't detach myself from this forum until I get my Sol! Now that's probably something to :blush: about!

Yeah, you and me both. The difference is, I have a GREAT reason to detach myself. And with gasoline prices down to as low as $2.09 for regular at a Citgo, I have no excuse.

So, I think I will start cutting back and try to raise the level of my posts to a "quality" level. It's a long stretch for me, so wish me luck. :)

Don't worry about it. Gizmo sometimes teases me and tells me I sound like I'm a fifteen year old waiting to turn 16 to drive the car. :lol: My husband said he can tell the performance is better. And make sure you don't use 87 octain gas, my husband said it was really sluggish with 87 octain.( that's what my dealer put in.)

So you aren't 16? (Thanks deluke ;) I love reading your posts... Usually more informative than the rest of us Yahoos who are just waiting) Giz is still a yahoo, but he's got his car :) :willy:
