That is BEAUTIFUL! I have always loved black cars, and those black wheels make it look all the more better

Oh man,
Those black Aero'* look sweet. I'd start with the tint, then some performance upgrades.
Definitely get the bumper fixed up first, though.

Not totally true. The exhaust on these car is pretty free-flowing. A high-flow catalytic is the most you'd really need. I'd throw some paint on it, recondition the Aerolites(Black! ), and then go the performance route.

First of all, there'* no shame in an all stock ride, IMO.

However, modding is fun and many of us end up doing so, despite our best original intentions.

Paint the front bumper

then

tint

then perf. mods.

Your car is awesome! I love the sound system, though. Man, that thing must rock! I have some Kappas, but the 5.25" in the front, and Reference speakers in the back. They are so crisp, clear, and utterly amazing together. I can't imagine what the four Kappas sound like! Good choice on the amps. I'm sorry if I'm deviating from the topic, but I just can't help it. Awesome sound.

I voted performance.

Fix the paint, tint the tails, clear the corners, keep the stock rims or get chrome T-stars, tint the windows, port the LIM, get a FWI. just a few places to start IMO

LIM=lower intake manifold

Porting is widing the passages to allow better flow

FWI=fender well intake

Think of it as a cai that extends down to the fender to get air rather than sucking in hot engine bay air like a cai does

There are several pics of a few members who have this setup and intense racing sells a setup for the bonneville
