PostSubject: My next mod?   July 28th 2010, 5:31 pm

Ok I know I said that I was done for awhile but I have some extra cash and want to do something to my ride. Problem is I can't decide which I want to do performance/looks. So I figured I could list some of the things I am looking at doing to get CAMM's opinion. Maybe that will help me decide. So here in no particular order they are lowering springs, strut brace, 3gcustomz abs cover/fusebox/power steering cover, and MTCM. So many choices and can only do one of them currently. What do you think?

I want peformance and looks that is why it is hard to decide. As far as lowering has me not wanting to is I will be driving my magnum for one winter here before I transfer. I want it to handle the curvy roads I love to drive on but want it to wow people when I'm at shows

OK, so hold off on the lowering. On the rest, just prioritize...if you could only have one, price aside, which would it be? Then put price to each, and re-prioritize. Like, "I could have 2,3 and 4 for the price of #1." That might change the priority.

Then look for deals on all the stuff. Getting a more expensive thing on your list a lot cheaper (like I did with my shaker) will change the priority.

As far as what would look better/not? Don't ask that question. Opinions here or anywhere else will be as varied as you can imagine. Just because I or someone else likes or doesn't like something doesn't matter: it's what YOU like that matters. Give that some thought.

That is my dilema I can be somewhat impulsive and just want to get the best bang for my buck. This will be my last big mod till the new year.

I don't know where you were stationed before this, but the winters here are not like OK. More snow and the roads tend to disintegrate during the course of the season. Salt will get further up into your undercarriage as well.

If you haven't driven in it, I don't think your first exposure should be in a lowered car.

I agree. The only reason I lowered my car was because I have a beater to drive around all winter. Before that, my Charger was my daily driver.

I think you should get the ABS cover only because if you are doing all of the other stuff in the engine bay, like the cover, then you should "finish it" (even though I know it might not be finished, at least not with you LOL).

Well I made a choice had a unexpected expense to take care of. So my big mod is on hold for now. Sad However I am going to order just the abs cover and get it painted then when January rolls around I will be ordering my sway bars and lowering spring in anticipation of moving to Texas. Yes Jackie I may never finish always a new idea in my head. Very Happy
