    Yeah, I agree! I really want coilovers, but don't want to spend coilover money. Maybe for the time being just get some springs to lower it a bit.

    If you get the springs, you have to get shocks to match.

    I highly recommend the H&R Cup Kit. It's what I have (though I replaced the shocks with something else). It's what I have and love it.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    At that price point, might as well save up for some coilovers!

    So I ordered a few parts for the car to do some maintenance work on it! The first order of business was the cabin filter. It was not doing its job, so it was time to replace it!

    Next up was an oil change! It was time to change it and I was sick of the car yelling at me every time I turned it on "Oil Life: -500 miles!!!!" haha
    I reset the oil life and this is WAY more miles than I am comfortable going before the next oil change!

    I then lowered the car and cleaned up that bay a little. It is still dirty, but then again I'm super anal about this car!

    Yeah, they where not pretty bad! That was the only part of this car that was not insanely well taken car of, but glad they cleaned up so well!

    yeah, they work really well on the car.


    im in the same boat as you, ill be shopping for suspension over winter. if you go coilovers (and suspension in general) you can't go cheap and great coilovers are PRICEY these days.

    Yeah, I am in no rush to modify this car! It is great looking as it sits (although it could look better!) So my current plan is to just enjoy the car and sit back and wait for deals on used parts to pop up for sale. I am just going to take it slow!
