A cold air intake is a good place to start imo. Welcome to our corner of the galaxy.

Tinted windows for sure!! That's just a given!! I would say start with the windows then decide if you want to do any cosmetic mods. Then you can figure out which is more important right after you get your baby. Getting her looking AWESOME or picking up the HP!! I'm going cosmetic first because my dealership isn't cool enough to work with any mods I do to the engine, exhaust, blah blah blah!! So, I'm taking baby steps. If you don't have the RS package you might want to consider a spoiler. I ordered mine from a sponsor here and she rocks!!! I get it installed next week. Then you want to figure out if you want to do a color scheme with yours. I am doing red accents throughout. I do plan on getting a CAI, Catch Can, Exhaust and what not later on, but as stated before sticking with cosmetic mods. I have the red spears on my hood, LOVE THEM!! I would also like to get the dual halos, red and white!! I'm going to replace my interior trim kit too!! There is a TON of stuff you can do, just figure out which end you want to start with first and roll from there!! This forum is sooooo helpful and very addicting. New stuff ALL THE TIME!!! AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!

You might want to ask around town. Everyone is different. Here it's 20%, and that's what I have. Looks darker than that because I have black interior so it looks like it's 5%

Nope!! Nothing is voided because I haven't touched the mechanical aspects of it. Yes I love the red and black combo. People tell me my car looks like a black widow and it's mean looking. When you get used to posts on here there is one guy named PQ that has his car in his sig and he has the red hood spears and the red grill on the front of his car. I would lilke to do that too!! I have pics of my tint and my spears, bad shots, but they are there. I will post my spoiler when that gets put on. The spoiler is getting installed by my dealership and since I got it from another dealership it will be covered by my warranty so that's a plus!! Yes, I have my windows tinted. It cost me $140, got everything 20% all the way around and even got the brow put on. Let me know if you have any more questions or wanna know who I went through for my spoiler. I just got the stock spoiler that the RS and SS come with. I didn't want anything big and obvious, my girl just needed more to her backside!!

Headers, exhaust, CAM, supercharge or turbo, stroke to a 418 or 427, forge all the internals, replace the head accessories, then clutch, sway bars, end-links, control arms, syncros in the tranny, shifter, oh and separate clutch reservoir (if manual), rims / tires, ooopsss almost forgot tint.
Wheewww..... I know it's a lot of stuff, but it will be a lot more fun to drive when you're done and you won't get smoked by a Mustang or a BMW. LOL

depends on your state here is 32% or 30% is the darkest you can go legaly

and if i was to tint my windows i would keep all the paper work in my car so if i got pulled over i could go "here cop im legal heres the proof and work order"

*edit* do some reserech go to police stations reserech online find out whats legal for your aera/state before window tinting smart way and to avoid alot of tickets/headaches

Yes, 20% is the darkest I could go without getting pulled over. We have a lifetime warranty on the tint so if it bubbles or starts to peel back or turn purple at any point in it's life I can take it back and get it done for free. Hence the higher price. You will want to look into that before you say "Ok, tint my car"

I get beef from work all the time that my tint is illegal when it's not. I told the guy 20% and that's what he did. My co-workers say it's limo tint, and I tell them I have the paperwork in my car and then they proceed to ask how much I paid the guy to put that down on my paperwork. Pisses me the f&%$ off that they say and do that crap to me!! I have a State Police Officer in the family and I asked him, he told me if I ever got pulled over and the cop insists that it's illegal, I can ask him to pull out his tint template and show me that it's illegal. If he won't then I can tell him I'm going to court and not paying because he won't be able to prove that my tint was too dark in court if he can't at the time of the pull over. I'm ready, but none of them have even looked at my baby twice!!

So, if you cross state lines you get a ticket? OMG; Every state is different. Your lawmakers over there must be working overtime, no wonder why there so much debt over there. Holy smokes.

That I do not know!! I would think that if you have a plate from a certain state they would be easier on you since your tint falls within that states laws. I wouldn't know, but that would be nice!! Wishful thinking!! I'll have to ask that question. Interesting. Were you talking to me about the debt?? If so, you have no freakin' clue. It's freakin' ridiculous. We are bailing outta here in a few years and heading over to La. This place makes me !!!

My bad didn't know you were from the Great North!! :rofl: Yes, a lot of $$$$ is thrown around every inch of this place. Just ridiculous!!
