Little help guys... Not sure what a good first mod is. I'm thinking of either lowering springs or exhaust? What do you guys think?

Which lowering spring would you guys recommend? I'm wanting it to be as low as possible and still remaining a smooth sporty ride.. I was thinking Pfadt, or BMR?

BMR or get some Pedders XA coil overs so you won't compromise your ride.

Nice. It looks red in the pictures, lol. I have an IOM myself and one of my customers came in today and said, "It's good to see big red out there!" he had to take off his sunglasses to realize it's orange.

Either going with Pfadt or BMR springs for my first mod. Is there a Pfadt or BMR vendor on C5 I can buy from or should I just buy the springs from or should I just buy from either of their websites?

Help me choose between the Pfadt 1.25" springs all around or the BMR 1.4" springs all around? Leaning more towards Pfadt because they are doing a lot of business with GM and have only heard good things about them. The BMRs are a little lower but I'm not sure how they ride... Or my other option is should I just save up an extra grand and buy coilovers?
