So... I just got my Tax Return monies direct deposited :clap: and am having a hard time deciding what to do with it either buy Mods or roll it into my IRA. So I chose Mods! This is what I narrowed it down to! I might do more than one of them... don't know yet. So tell me what you think.. what would you do?

  1. GT LED tail lights
  2. Get my RPF1's powder coated Anthracite or Gunmetal and 225-45-17 rubber
  3. Prokit and Koni's
  4. Custom Magnaflow exhaust by Hanksville Hotrods
  5. Buy the materials to build a 4-2-1 Header
  6. GPS DVD headunit w/7" screen

pro-kits and konis. the only other one i liked was the header, but our ECU is too sensitive to mod with...especially with a lack of a tuning device

I bought the PF01's with mine. Used my Xmas bonus to get a pro-kit and yellows.

I say go for the suspension for sure.

I voted Pro-kit/Koni. Get to learn the springs, since they're progressive, before screwing around on public roads.

Actually, if you have the 2.0, there's quite a bit of info out there. We share the same engine as the previous models. I know protegegarage has a re-flash from DPTune/ Piasini and CP-E has a standback. Opens doors for power in the 2.0.

I say save it and wait till some bigger companies come up with some stuff, we are coming out of the recession so the performance auto parts industry should start picking back up

Yea, I got a e-mail the other day that they had a beta version and should release a flash in a few weeks.

Oh and I voted for the koni's and prokit.

js4kix.

i say GT tails, only because that's like something extra only us enthusiasts would catch. i'd purchase something extra with no power gain with extra money (i.e. tax return) aside from my regular income.. but that's just me.

^^^ they don't do alignments. Might go with leafracing 'cause they're cheaper.. checked Tirerack and they will have the pro-kit and koni's by May.. probably just in time for our Mazdafest..

seriously? i could've sworn they did.. but yeah, leafracing is legit too. i would've recommended them second if for some reason js4kix couldn't do it. lol

Already on order :clap:...... placed my order last night at about midnight through www.parts.com $211.43 each Ouch! still have enough left for most of the price of Koni/ Prokit, or get rims powder coated and new tires.... :)
