*READ THIS, ITS THE BEST SPEECH TO GIVE TO A SIXTEEN YEAR OLD"
I hate to rag on you because I know you are young, but look at it from an older person's perspective for two seconds. Your going to look like a tool with this crap. Let me go down the list and explain most of this to you.
"Replace the wing 1st"
Its really a bad idea to toy with a cars aerodynamics unless you are actually a track driver, you don't need a wing truthfully unless you are going above 75. Notice thats when porsche's automatic wings rise up, because before that point you are barely adding downforce, which is the whole point of the car's wing. The same thing with body kits, the whole point is to add downforce in corners and highspeed straits, but your not going to need that for street driving. Chances are you are either going to ruin your handling or worse install it wrong and jack up the car. Also chances are you are thinking bolt on spoilers, A REALLY BAD IDEA.
"Wheels(black, 18inch, 5-spoke)"
This is an agreeable option. Much better then the pointless wing. They can dynamically change the look of the car. Also it gives more room for bigger brakes. Which brakes and suspension are the first two things you worry about on your car. Before you get to the engine hopping up power, YOU MUST HAVE IMPROVED BRAKING ABILITY AND IMPROVED SUSPENSION BEFORE ONE BIT OF EXTRA HORSEPOWER IS PUT IN.
Absolutely pointless, they make cars look like white trash. Stay away at all costs seriously. No girl is going to think its cute. I have a friend with a mustang with him and he gets trashed on constantly.
Ok if your going with an exhaust remember to follow from engine to exhaust the whole way out. Many people believe if they put a coffee can at the end of their pipe it improves performance. NO NO NO it doesn't. You are not increasing airflow. You must follow 3 inches from the engine to the cat all the way out the back. If you have 3 inches all the way out but one piece that is 1inch, you have not made any difference. Three basic lessons.
1) The sound of the car comes from the engine, NOT THE EXHAUST
2) The HP is not increased by adding an apc coffee can to the end, and you sound like a dick doing 15 sounding like you are doing 90. Anyone who truly knows anything about cars will look at you like you are a poseur to the automotive world.
3) If you want to install a proper exhaust its going to cost you $500 plus, look closer to $1,000 in your estimates.
"body kit(razzi maybe)"
Refer back to the wing
I cannot disagree with a good stereo, but remember dynomat it. There is no point in going around with your car vibrating. Once again girls will laugh at you.
NO, JUST NO, YOU WILL LOOK LIKE A WHITE TRASH TEENAGER WHO WATCHED TOO MUCH FAST AND THE FURIOUS AND IS NOW THE BIGGEST POSEUR ON THE STREETS. JUST NO.
Go with a legit brand like bilstein, koni, or eibach that were made for your car. DO NOT CUT THE SPRINGS, it will blow your camber futher blowing your suspension. The first thing, as i have said before, is to improve brakes and suspension. This is a good start. Also look into strut braces, and any other types of strengthening bars you can put onto your car.
It's a good improvement to the car, just make sure you are doing it correctly and actually getting more air to the motor. Thats the whole point.
"MAYBE racing seats(sparco)"
Don't get racing seats. They are uncomfortable and useless. Rather take your seats into a stitch artist and they can do two things you will really love.
1) Put more cushion into the sides so your seat wraps around you more and holds you in the corners comfortably.
2) For a small chunk of change you can get a two-tone interior.
If you want pussy, make it a nice place to sit, and some how she will find her way into the back seat with her panties still in the front.
"Replace the shifter nob"
Stupid and novelty I understand, I even ponder the idea. If you want to change it, remember fine materials. Go with carbon fiber or a nice beach wood like they have in the porsche carrera gt. You will thank yourself for it later.
Unless you are sponsored by a racing team, graphics are pointless, very rarely does anyone get the color scheme right so don't even worry about it.
someone mentioned a turbo
unless you have four grand for the turbo, money for the hoses, money to upgrade the transmission, clutch, master and slave cylinder (just to name a few) do not add serious ammounts of hp. To upgrade one item of your motor, YOU MUST UPGRADE THE WHOLE MOTOR, or else you will blow everything out. People disagree with me on this all the time, and then wonder why they have to buy a new honda every six months.
Insurance + Legal
if you are paying for your insurance keep the receipts for all of your items. you will have to pay them on average an extra 10% to insure whatever you add to your car. So if you put $1,000 in extras on your car, you will have to pay them $100 to insure it per year. So you are thinking what if I don't tell them. Well it doesn't make them very happy when the police find your car is illegaly lowered and reports this. They kind of want to know about these little details. Even if your company doesn't care, what happens if your car is stolen. That $1,000 is gone and they will not refund those parts of the car. Also if you are involved in an accident, a cop can easily assume that the reason for the crash, unless blatently the other person's fault, is you had a failure on a part you installed. Another thing to think about is what if you are pulled over with a car you have visually improved. Good luck talking him out of a ticket. Its more important to have a sleeper car that is quick yet looks silent and sounds it too.
Do not spend money you could spend on education on your car. DUMBEST MOVE. You buy a car, spend your college money on it, work at taco bell, the car is nice for a couple of years, you have no education, no stability, you're working at taco bell with no equity on your worthless car and you have basically checkmated yourself. Sounds over exaggerated, HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.
MY FINAL POINT
Honda drivers meet at the local walmart, Porsche drivers meet at the track. Catch my drift. If you really care about cars read books on how to improve your driving skills, better yet attend some driving schools. They have camps where people go for a week and drive around tracks improving their skills, kind of like high north but with properly suped up cars going around a track at 130mph. Ignore the highschool image of what a good driver is, its bullshit.
