    I want to get 17" tires
    Chrome cobra style rims
    Dual EXhaust *something with a somewhat decent rumble*


    I need to know places located in NORTHERN VA that will either sell and or install this stuff. I really want to try and find a local shop or whatnot that will do this stuff for me.


    Please help.

    If you already know what you want, get rims/tires online at TireRack, GEFRacing, any of the normal websites we all go to, including eBay. Install rims/tires yourself as most places sell them already balanced. Exhaust, any Monroe or garage if you get a direct bolt-on system.

    If you have jack stands and a hacksaw, you can put the exhaust on yourself and save $50-$100.

    Go with a Bullitt kit from gefracing.com. it includes everything from springs and shocks to sway bars. thats the safe way to go if your concerned about ride quality.

    Yeah thats what I meant. Thanks for not being a smart ass about it.

    If you headlights are all blurry, some smoked headlights look very mean. I got mine on yesterday! :nice:

    I'd lower it about 1.5" and not go beyond that as I think that it looks slammed that way.
