-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Since i got my car ive done a few thingss.


Cupholder fixed.


15% Tint.


Yellow fogs.


Also got my rear wheel bearing fixed..still need to get other side fixed.
Got a new battery too..cold weather sucks.

She still needs a good amount of work before shes real clean.

Sunroof motor is shot, side mirror glass is glazed, and i need 2 new front speakers and also speaker cover on driver side...(if your speaker goes in and out dont hit it thinking it will fix it...cars are fragile..)

Looks good so far, one small step at a time. You have any plans for visual aspects, lowering, wheels?
Yeah going to lower it before wheels. Not sure what type of coilovers yet.
I was thinking vmaxs only because theyre pretty cheap.
As far as wheels go i want a clean audi look. Was thinking maybe s4 wheels. I ca probably get a set with tires for a decent price.

I also wanna clear my headlights out..although im not sure how hard it is..buying clear side ones might be easier.

I'm pretty sure there's a DIY in the FAQ not positive but I know I've seen it somewhere. From what I read it's not entirely to hard to clear the head lights you just run the risk of leaving visible holes or something like that. So in my opinion it's worth a shot and if you mess it up you could just buy new ones already cleared. :thumbup:

I agree, I love the celebrations, so simple and clean. The rockstars really only look good on lifted diesel trucks.

Im probably going with ST coilovers..i just wish they had a warrenty. I was always planning on the coils i get to have a lifetime warrenty..or even a few years.
