LOL, I know right!! And I don't know when, everything I want to do is like $100 or more unless it is something simple like spacers... But, I'm on a limited budget for out-of-state college and I has no job atm... so not for awhile till summer possibly :( unless I gets a job spring semester. Education before car right now.

Oh yeah I'll need tires come summer time so there is my mod but we will see..

Very nice so far! I too am on a no job college student budget but I keep selling off other toys to improve this one haha.
Good news is I got job today! Bad news it is the holidays and I need new tires ASAP... getting Conti DWS's... but that's over $500 gone so... yeah I'm sad :(...

But, thanks my next mod will be either RSB or header and tires...

so no one has ever answered me when ive asked this is it worth doing those shifter mods to a brand new car?
Not necessary. Shifts are pretty good in this car as it is just sometimes a bit notchy. I shall see if the short shift is really nice in our cars or too short for the tranny.
