    yea, I got quotes from other places down to about 125 but I checked out a few cars that had been done by this place several years ago and they look brand new so I paid a premium for it. It was worth it to me :nice:

    About 21 bucks for burned out lights. Add in an oil change... So far not that much.

    But, I would like (performance first, beeyotch)...

    C&L Plenum...$120

    75MM T/B...$150-230

    UPR O/R X-pipe...160 ...or an O/R H-pipe, which is around the same also.

    Catback exhaust, or dumps... So either $299 and way up, or the price of mufflers and dumps.

    Short throw shifter... $130-185

    Gears...$180 or so plus install.

    For cosmetics...

    Mach-1 Chin Spoiler... $100

    Smoked headlights...$130-225 or so.

    FR-500 wheels... TO DAMN EXPENSIVE!!!

    That adds up. I doubt ill actually get all of it soon, but who knows.
