Hello everyone

Hey guys, Iíve been reading these forums for some time now, the more i read the more I been getting hooked. I finally picked up my lude last week, got a 2001 SH in electron blue I got it from a lady owner and it is in amazing condition itís all original atm. (I will get some pics up soon as i get a chance)

I want to spend about $1500 in upgrades i want to get some new fog lamps as well as maybe drop some xenonís for the front lights. Are there any upgrades that you guys recommend that I get done first? (Performance or aesthetics)

Thanks

What preludeboy said is the best place to start and that should eat up at least $500-$700. After that it all depends on what you want. If there is anything thats not in the shape you would like it to be, then replace it but upgrade it at the same time. There's really alot of personal preference when it comes to cars. So do what you want. Search the forum and take a look at all the members rides to get some cool ideas.

What's you're overall plans for the car? Just a fun DD, big N/A build, turbo? Decide that then pick mods that support your decision. Don't just blindly buy parts.

Well im not looking to do any heave work on the engine atm. Intake, exhaust is far as I want to go in terms of performance right now. Headlights, fog lights and rims. These are the upgrades I will be looking to get done in the coming months. Just wanted to get some feedback on what I should be looking at for b4 I start purchasing. What brands & sites should I be looking to do business with.


As far as the pics I will try to get some up sometime this week b4 I start adding upgrades.
