eibach spings are my personal fav.

Also can you please change the name of the tread to state year and model

i.e. 1997 Mirage RS etc....

If you can pm me a link for the wheels i can photoshop them onto the car for you... would take 5 min

spax i know do adjustable dampner kits that come with springs. they are basically a coilover without the height adjustment. i think it's the psx range or something like that.

when i do the wheels is there any changes that you want done to the car, i.e. tints, new grill, etc... so you can see what it might look like before you do it?

i've rebuilding the pc at home this week so i can start working on them soon. if you want bodywork mods no matter how suttle let me know, oh can i grab the high res versions of your car pics? they are nice and clear will make good photoshop project cars.

I'd see if you can find some black mesh to cover up that piping on the bumper... make it look a bit more stockl

How big is your bank account...

i'd save and get the head ported planned and polished, then get some nice fast road cams, extractors, exhaust, cold air box (you have the intake),

then you have done the more basic stuff...

The air-intake is good just a point about the pod-filter, maybe just sheld the pod-fiilter so thy hot air drives pass instead of sucking hot plus cold air in together..
