ummm. That whole thread is full of BS.

I'd make sure of what you're getting before pulling the trigger.

Why not just get some Kooks headers?

Because I can get the whole Bassani system for $X,XXX, then I can sell what I have of my JBA set up $XXX and in the end in only down a small ish amount of money. Let's say I'm in the red less so than if I were to buy some Kooks LTH. So to me (right now at least) it is a numbers game.

You have basically what i want in my car...

Love it.. I'm only 2 week into owning mine, and already have the list of things I am doing to it.

Tinted tail lights, and side markers, Windows.

But I'm stuck on either getting my Stock RS rims Black Chromed or buying a set of 20" Black Chrome Havoc rims and using my stock rims for winter.. Living in MN I wouldn't dare use summer rims in the winter

Glad to see your enjoying the camaro. Also, welcome to C5 The tinted windows were the first thing I did. Then I got headlightarmor's show/stealth tints for the taillights and side markers.

With me at least, most of my mods come down to plain numbers (hp and monetarily). I will buy used parts if I can, I mean they function the same but may be scuffed up. And then I also bargain hunt. For example, the Havoc black chrome wheels go for around $1,100 last time I checked. When I got my wheels powder coated gloss black the guy wanted $700 to do black chrome. So I mean if you are in need of a second set of rims then I'd say go for the Havocs. Also, another heads up. I got the Pirrelli Scorpions Ice and Snow tires for my winter wheels. They ran me just under a grand. But if you want what will turn more heads I'd say the Havocs.

In my waiting for the Bassani set up, I found this on the internets. It is a completely stock SS. So what you hear is just the Bassani exhaust vs OEM exhaust. Obviously having their whole system will be louder, but this gave me a pretty good idea of what the sound will be like.

So I've been bad. Having not even spent 5 minutes in the Vendors Wheels/Tires section I got the itch. An itch that I cannot afford to have. Wheels. I must have spent 40 minutes looking at wheels. Something I never do. I was/am perfectly happy with my plasti-dipped OEM wheels. But, no I had to go window shopping. Stupid vendors section Oh well. These are my top two.

VR3S - Matte Black Center with Gloss Black Rim Shells


OR

F14's - Piano Black


And no, just because the F14's got two pictures doesn't mean I like them better. Forgestar just offered two different angles and Forgeline only had one. Will say though, I am partial to the matte black center and gloss black rims on the VR3S's.

Forgeline is a higher quality wheel than Forgestar. I am looking for performance wheels now and have considered both of those too. I am probably going to get the Forgelines.

Yea, I'm slightly leaning towards them. The spoke pattern is similar, but I really just like the color scheme on the Forgelines. That being said, they are out of my price range at the moment. :( But maybe eventually.

So the Firebreather spoiler just became available again (no idea how long they will produce it), and I love this spoiler. So my question is, do I bite the bullet and order it OR wait until it doesn't make such a big dent in my wallet. But the only problem with the latter is that they discontinue it before I would have the funds to buy it. So opinions? Here are a few shots of the spoiler.


EDIT: I cannot actually find the post that had the link to the company whom was selling this (deleted I'm pretty sure). So this is being put back into the filing cabinet. I have other and more awesome mods to do.

No I know, just wanted other people's thoughts. Like when this first came out last year and there was a limited number produced I fell in love with the spoiler, and now that it's being produced again I want to jump all over it. I just am trying to figure out if how much I like this spoiler is due to me building it up in my head for the past 8 or 9 months or so. But don't worry Ofer, I don't need any bodies "permission" to mod and I mod hard

If you really want opinions, I don't like it. But, it's your car. If you like it, that's all that matters.
