man this is a good thread. im the kind of person that buys exactly what i want the first time. so that puts me not getting springs or that expensive as sh*t intake first... man i dunno. when i pick up the car, window tint will be first followed by stereo equipment install *amps/sub/speaker replacement* since i already have some

i dont know why, but my first mod is always an intake or something with the suspension. I bought my intake and coilovers for my last car at the same time and for the Z i got my intake first. Not sure why.

i cant get wheels and tires until im dropped. i hate that look on my car personally

Lowering springs? really. Damn. Car is so low already.

Exhaust and intake, in that order... after that some bracing, than wheels and tires and a pair of coilovers.

Internal lights and external fog lights were my first as they were cheapest. For my first preferred aftermarket upgrade, that would have to be wheels and tires, not too keen on those stock wheels.

Actually I lied. I forgot that Mrs. GM3 bought me a center arm rest.

Happiness is a nice road, great weather, and driving the S with Sue in the seat next to me.

Would prefer a LSD, but since that is not on there I put coilovers. All I have bought so far are wheels though. That more comes down to what I could afford after buying the car and that my CL9 isn't sold yet.

Does that mean that crzperformance.com doesn't want to sell the Eibach Springs right on the main CRZ product lineup page??

I'll help ya out. They (crzperformance) have them at a pretty good price...

I am personally am extremely pleased with the 1" lowering choice.

Hindsight being 20/20 probably should made one line item named "OEM Upgrade".

Better tires all the way. The stock tires are garbage...they have no grip, and they are too narrow.
