You just drove home that new CR-Z, your watching the threads and thinking about what you want to do first.

Vote and comment on what would be your preferred first aftermarket install.

Note: With a max poll limit of 10, cannot capture everything. But based on previous threads, these are what we see most.

I got the flip-key fob and JDM badges already if those count.

After that I think a set of wheels after the tax refund comes back.

My first mod was doing interior LED lighting since it was the cheapest :pP:
Along with that I did the DIY LED blue floor lights filter drilling to make them brighter.

I was torn between whether I wanted to do springs, or wheels/tires first. Both of these are a must for me, and with just these couple of mods the CRZ looks amazing!

Ended up ordering the springs, because I only have my garage for about 3 more weeks and I want to install them myself before I move. :grin:

^ yep, kind of my thinking. Lets lower it and get the rear flush and go from there.

On the Rear and Front Aero kits. I understand there are a lot of options. If your are going for a front spoiler, just pick Front Aero kit and make a post here to tell us what specific piece you are getting. Same for the rear aero kit.

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

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.

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.

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

:thumbsup:

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