Spoiler question

do the sc/t spoilers have the same holes in the deck lid as a stock gt spoiler? also, what are some quick mods that will make the car look better?

Just added--

what about getting the stock rims powdercoated and then put those red inserts on the spokes from customgrandam.com. My car is red so would it look good or goofy?

Anything "quick" would be more in the range of adding overlays to either the interior or exterior of the car, changing the heads/tails, or putting in grille inserts. Search through the items that either Grafexwerks, Custom Grand AM, PFYC, CCG or any of our sponsors have.

Yer a lot of times on older cars you can see dirt outlining it or whatever. either goo gone will take it off and if not a clay bar will. If the paint is any different, it wont be enough for someone to notice.

personally i wouldnt debage a car over 8 or 9 years old. cuz ur risking the paint being different shades due to weathering. but like on something like what u have, a 2000 i think i saw, u should be good to go unless the paint is already in horrible shape which i doubt it is

Yer I realize they arent a site sponsor but check out customgrandam.com. depending on the color of your car you could get headlight corner overlays, grills, debadge, lots of "quick" mods u can do.

interior lighting from oznium is very inexpensive but im very happy with what i got from there. new pcm is like 150 i think from mp racing. beyond exhaust, intake, and pcm, the $$$ amount seems to shoot up. ported headers are around 300 i think, down pipe is reasonable tho thru zzp, its like 110 or 130 i dont remember exactly. as time goes on, youll see whats out there

but as for apprearence there isnt loads, outside of body kits; may i suggest either SC/T or RK Sport. heads/tails, underglos (prbly arent legal by you either), exhaust tips (with new muffler), rims.
but all this stuff isnt cheap either so there are some ideas, u just have to decide what ur limit is on what u want to spend

I assume you're talking about stock rims?
