Welcome to the permagrin wearin' family. I love what you have done so far. I wish I had gotten the black CAI inc, looks great. Love the red catch can too! That mod bug is dangerous. You are addicted now! But it is great therapy.

So-getting my Alpine headunit installed tomorrow.

I have about $500 to spend left.

Do I get suspension goodies (Springs, sways, etc), or do i keep working on the audio?

Thoughts all?

Hello and congrats on the new Camaro.

Mod bug is running rapid. We have all been there done that too.

What to spend next, is stricktly up to you.

I tried to keep mine very well ballanced between 3 catagories for spending over the 5 years to date.

Cosmetic, Handling, and Performance.

So far it is real close.

36%, 33%, 31% respectively.

If you should have any questions just keep asking, people here are willing to help.

Be sure to check out my journal in my signature for further money spending ideas and mods.....LOL

Springs and sways. Power is nothing without control.

Well it depends on what you are going to do with the car.
If the car is going to the track and drag strip then yes suspension. But if you are not going to just drive it then get the upgraded sound system.

SO, I want to do something aobut the bottom "grill" on the front bumper cover. I hate how half of it is flat plastic, then the other half is "grill". Is there a replacement for it, or do I need a whole new bumper cover to have options?

Might want to check out this site, and see if they offer anything for that lower grill yet.

Yeah, that is where i was looking earlier.

Hoping i dont have to do a whole front wrap swap...would if i had to...but jeez.

That being said, going with Hertz High Energy series to finish out the speakers and sub in the car.

Then i think im going to get the BMR lowering springs, front crossbrace, and then do exhaust. I would like to get the Brembo conversion, but holy jebuz...thats expensive.

Installed my clutch reservoir kit today-very easy. Did NOT flush the system, as my car is about 3 weeks old...so figured i could let that go for a while
