The need to go fast makes me want to get nitrous and seeing the look of cars with nice wheels has me wanting some too..... You can see my predicament

Oh definitely. Just need to decide if to buy high flow cats or go straight pipe. Although I may just find a way to buy a random set of high flows and fabricate them since the pacesetters are so expensive. I'll also be doing the pfadt stuff.... Hopefully it'll all be in within the next 2-3 weeks.

Man you are in a pickle Haha. Rims drastically change the look, along with the bumper.
But then there is the need. The need for speed haha.

I want to get some coilovers to. Might get the Meghan COs. no bad reviews from what I've seen

I know rims drastically change the look but I can't decide on just one set
And my dream wheels are some forgelines and I can't afford those

Those are the ones I've been looking at as well. If I go coilovers I'll definitely be going with those. Unless I get a deal on something else. But it'd have to be a smoking deal

So..... since it's summer and I'm finally done with school, I've had some free time. So what did I do? Kept myself occupied by making my own body painted sidemarkers. Really liked how they turned out! What do you guys think?

Here's a pic of me spraying them down:

That's what's at the top of the list right now. I just have a few things I want to be able to do with it so I have to talk to my installer to see if what I want is even possible

You'll get there eventually I'm sure. I think I just found a good deal on some corvette replicas. May go pick them up to finally have a nice strip setup

Definitely! But I already have lightweight 18s on mine. Trust me, they make a big difference. If I get a whole new set of wheels, it'll definitely be some 20s for the "show" factor.
