Welcome aboard! Check out some build threads for ideas. An upgraded rear sway bar is a good place to start. It'll reduce body roll and improve cornering.

Please SEARCH before posting a question. It's probably already been asked.

Oooof, sorry to hear about the minor damage to bumper and windscreen. Thx for the pic! That Meteor Gray looks very nice.

First real mod I'm making to my car is swapping out factory wheels for some +1 rims (see post #2335) and putting wider tires on, too. It's one of the more expensive mods, but I've got the really heavy 16-inch steelies (which were fine for winter), not the alloys on the iTouring.

EDIT: Actually, from the pic you posted, it looks like you have 18-in alloys. What size is your engine? 2.0L or 2.5L?

Thanks

And those wheels you are looking at look awesome, I've got the 2.0L so those are just the 17" alloy,

And the meteor Gray is not the best color for California its not much better than black when it comes to absorbing heat

Thx for clarifying. Are you in NoCal or SoCal? I lived in San Jose (Campbell) as well as San Diego (La Jolla) in the 1990s.

Oh, yeah. Know it well. While driving on the 5, we used to smell the infamous cattle pens well before they were visible. Are those still there?

It's funny you actually know of us most don't even realize we are on the 5 and the 99 they just drive through and don't look back
