I'm getting ready to start modding again once the holidays are over and wanted to see what everyone thinks of my car.

The exterior is very clean! And I really like those cleared tails! Also, nice job on the paint, both in and out! Too bad it's not a stick, but that can't be helped. I like the direction you're taking the car.

Some more stuff would be clear turn signals to match the tails, and some more engine goodies to make your car scoot as fast as it looks. Blue-anodized water pump and P/S pullies would look good in the engine bay, as would the matching underdrive crank pulley. Also, have you considered lowering the car, getting an upgraded rear sway bar or a front strut bar?

I would lower the car, but the 17's are hell. Every little bump I go over my tires rub the wheel wells. I want to get a front strut bar. I hope to be buying saturns header as well as a CAI. I'd like to clear my turn signals this spring.

The paint looks decent from far away. But its already gone to crap. Its chipping all over the place on me. I'm pretty pissed about it.

the car looks great as is. . . nice and clean, but it would look absolutely sick, if you got clear corner lenses for the front turn signals and tinted the windows. Those two would get my first vote drooling.gif

I have the windows tinted. I just haven't had the time to get the back window done.

I don't know how I feel about the blue interior, but I like it in the engine bay. Other then that, very nice ride man. Nice and clean.

About the CAI's, make sure the Ebay post says it's completely aluminum, and not merely aluminum-coated. I have one that's aluminized steel. It's still going onto the car, only after a coat of paint or three. And a major cleaning, as it's dirty as heck.

The exterior is nice, especially if the windows are tinted. The chrome wheels and bright-blue interior trim definitely not my style, but that's a matter of taste. You may be reaching that plateau where you've done all the little/medium stuff to tailor your car to your tastes. Looks like you have exterior, interior, intake & exhaust. You could go for some suspension/brakes mods if the wheels allow it. After that I'd say sit back and enjoy it. If modding is the hobby then you'll always find things to change but the prices goes up fast.
