I've recently had to make the same decissions recently. I got both the new exhaust and paid off some bills. I can tell you that the bills made the biggest difference. Do them first.

Ditto. Your car will be happier if you lose some other debts.

I spent my refund and sold some of my stock to put a downpayment on my bonnie. I voted on paying bills which I did on the car here.

Like 89BonneiSE89 said. It is much better in the long run because you won't be paying intertest. You'll have more spendable cash for mods.
