yeah i was definately thinking of a CAI and considering exhaust. Believe it or not i actually got the car for a great price on ebay from an elderly guy haha. With that kind of mileage and tinted windows with sport package and 6 cd changer etc... it was a great deal!! Also will someone tell me a little bit more about these angel eyes ..thanks :wink

they wont work without ellipsoid projectors. You'll need to buy them first.(around $300).

Thats no too bad of a price on rings, which you can then install.

However, for about 5-600 you can buy ellipsoids with AEs already installed.

engine upgrades? go with the usual, CAI , exhaust, and performance chip, all under $1000 each, and will give you slight gains.
