Default Spring Plans for my car...

I'm sitting here, with eight inches of new snow, dreaming of spring. As I've said before, I have big plans for my car this spring, but I'm beginning to reconsider some of them. I think for now I'm going to skip neons, since not many people will ever see them and they won't change the general, everyday appearance of my car. So, as soon as the snow stops falling I'm going to get dual exhaust, that'* for sure. And then get chrome exhaust tips for it. I think I want to tint my windows, or what tinting I can legally do here. I'll paint my grill chrome and maybe clear my headlights and tint my taillights...maybe. Or maybe I'll get headlight shades/covers, whatever they are called . Then maybe some AngelEye fogs. So any opinions so far?? Does anyone have any ideas of any chrome accents I can add...I've thought about buying chrome colored wiper blades, maybe. And another question...any simple performance mods that I should be thinking about??

Thanks for any opinions/ideas...and sorry about the long rambling book of a post .

I like the angel eyes idea. That will look great.

As for the exhaust. Our cars really can't do a true dual exhaust. You could go with a dual outlet muffler though.

For performance, go with a cold-air intake. That with the exhaust should make a nice increase.

Man it'* like she'* copying my car.....

Don't do the wipers, those allways look cheesy.

when you do the exhaust, get a hi flow catalytic converter too, it'll give you better sound and performance with the muffler.

Hey, I've always admired you're car...so I may be borrowing a few ideas . Hmm...the wipers were a thought, I just want to put chrome somewhere other then just my rims and my grill. But I will rethink the wiper thought.

Now what is the about not being able to dual exhaust?? I want dual exhaust, badly!!! (*goes off to throw a fit* )

The way our headers and underbody is set up, it would be really hard to get a dual exhaust system. It would be totally custom and very very very expensive.

So it can be done!! But, I understand what you are saying, I'm just after the look really although having an actual working system would be nice.

Yea, it would be nice. That'* why we have the dual outlet mufflers. It'* the best we can get.

Although adding a dual exhaust would really hurt our power on the low end, unless we had a lot of engine mods.
