Haha, thanks for the warm welcome guys. As far as mods go (for now) im gonna keep it pretty strait forward and simple. Starting out im probably going to run with:

- of course, tint
- de-badging
- possibly switch out 07's with 05 tails
- turbo gauges
- HKS intake, BOV and exhaust
- Helix DNA coilovers
- V-ltd. front lip
- front and rear struts
- rear diffuser

That is about it... pretty basic. Trust me though, it will start to build off that more and more very soon. I am open to any suggestions you guys have toward what might be better/top manufacturers etc. Thanks again for the welcome.

Great looking car!

Try and stay away from the HKS BOV, it will actually hurt your car. Searching is your friend. The cat-backs arent bad but invest in a better downpipe, the HKS downpipe is essentially a stock downpipe with no cat. As far as the intake try and go with APS, and not HKS.
