What's my next mod?

Ok, I am waiting for my TSW Nurburg 20"wheels with 315 in rear and 275 tires and can't wait until they come. But now I am torn to which mods I want to do next. Here are my three choices:

1. Pfadt Lowering Springs

2. Custom Stripes (Vinyl)

3. Hex Hood Vents

What do you think I should do next?

Ther sis a pretty big price difference between all of those. If the stripes are painted then I vote for that. Otherwise I would go for the lowering springs.

I would say lowering the car would be best. gives it a bada$$ look and gets rid of some wheel gap. Although, if your like me and have to add winter tires/rims for winter driving, may not be ideal. That's one reason I haven't done it already.

Stripes depends on the color, I have the same BRM color as you and I'm still struggling with what color stripes to go with on mine (I was looking at gunmetal metallic stripes if you want to see if you like that I think there's some pics of different stripes in the BRM official thread if you search for it). I'm curious what you go with actually.

As for hex vents, I have no input. Never thought about doing hex hood vents but sounds like it would look good.

Post pics of the TSW Nurburgring rims on your car though love to see the look on a BRM colored Camaro.

Another vote for the springs. Those new wheels deserve the new stance. I have the Pfadt springs on mine, they are top notch quality and perfect stance.

With your wheels and tires, Lowering springs next. I would look into painted stripes before Vinyl, would just be my preference.

Yea, I was thinking that as well. But if I do that it will be awhile since it will cost allot more. I was thinking doing a partial wrap for the stripes until I have enough to get it painted on. This way it will come off when the time comes.

Lowering springs or stripes. I voted stripes though, since my custom stripes are my favorite mod so far!

I sure will, still waiting. The wheels will be here Friday but don't know about the tires.
