Puddle lights - every car should have them
LED lights... be careful on the front turn lights..they are a goofy bulb wiring.
Upgraded alternator - for the stereo of course
Aluminum subframe - the cool kid mod
Aluminum oil pan - if you ever do an oil pan gasket..you'll understand
Drag links/tow links/lateral arms - what a difference
Lowering - piece of cake on a W body
Adding seat heaters if you don't have them - oh yeah
Upgraded brakes - holy windshield kissin
Sooo much more to think of
Ok, lets start from the top.
HUD: MUST have. We had it on the Bonneville and my wife misses it dearly.
Projector headlights: if funds allow. I want them badly, but my hands are tied till the Bonneville is sold.
Better fogs: waiting on your PM and a picture
Double Din Radio: already planned since the factory tape deck isn't working, the CD skips like mad, and we had planned a touchscreen 7" Pioneer anyway. However, Nav and backup camera supported units are out of the budget. I'm looking at closer to $250-$300 for something that will support USB and Aux inputs.
Puddle lights: saw them, love them.
LED side mirror lights: YES! Saw your writeup, will very likely get this done as well
Alternator: the one I have on there right now is brand spanking new and my 95 Regal'* 105 alt is holding up brilliantly. I should be fin for now
Aluminum subframe: Backburner. Not that important for me, but will be done when the time comes
Aluminum oil pan: currently not leaking any fluids or losing any oil whatsoever. When I say this thing was maintained, I mean it was maintained. Not a single trace of sludge on the radiator cap or reservior, trans fluid is red and clear, aluminum LIM gasket already installed, valve cover gaskets replaced, likely won't need to do this for a while. I'll know more when I get underneath it.
Drag links/tow links/lateral arms - as funds permit once the Bonneville is sold.
Lowering: I'm concerned with how long the newly replaced shocks will last with lowered springs. I've heard horror stories about 2nd gens with lowered kits and the need for KYB AGX'*.
Car already has dual heated seats. GSE package.
Upgraded brakes: one of the first mods to be done. Tell me more.
Poly bushings; which ones, how much, where to get them? Sway bar bushings are a given and will be replaced without a doubt.
How do the factory GSE sway bars compare to the gmpp sway bars? Are there stiffer sway bar options out there? More importantly, is it worth it?
