What next?

Well with me always wanting to be doing something to my car, I turn to you fellow members to give me some ideas of what I should do next. Here are some pics:

First of all, spring is hardly "coming up" ... ITS GOING TO BE 10 DEGREES AS A HIGH HERE ON SUNDAY!


Second, I agree with SC/T and a drop, but depending on where you are in MI that might not be practical. What's your interior lookin like?

Werd. Maybe you can line the interior with Parisian? Swede is overplayed lately.

I'd say get the kit but that would mean a new front bumper as well with your crack. But being that low already, the kit sounds riisky. So swap me springs.

yeh if you want to kit it then you'll probably want to go air ride so you can go above regular ride height if you do drive it in the winter.

i would say another option is upgrade the seats. maybe some katzkin covers and heated pads? **** would be nice on our wonderful midwest winters..

Your car looks fine how it is. Like you said already, the sct kit and a drop will have your bumper dragging on the ground. Maybe a custom projector retrofit with HIDs or some more performance stuff. Going fast is always fun!

im not really into the performace because its really expensie and im sure addicting and to be honest its a grand am. i don't think it can go that fast without dropping thousands of dollars into the engine

it is addicting but rewarding too. For what you would spend on a kit you could put some nice motor mods together. If that is the way you are leaning. I think your car looks fantastic as is. A two tone SC/t would be sweet. Or black racing seats would look very nice.

Actually, if you can find a dark green suede, you should maybe do the headliner and those inserts on the doors.... cover the arm rest too.

Ah, couldnt tell from the pic the boots were aftermarket. I still say go for leather seats. Also looks like you have the cloth door inserts. Maybe replace them with leather?

Yea I really would like an sc/t kit, but that would get towards the expensive side I think because I would also have to get a new front bumper cover cause the one i have right now has no support for the front lip, and then pay to get that and the kit painted, fitted, and installed.
I would LOVE to get black leather katskin seatcovers for the front and back, that would be a dream.

i want to keep the green in the interior to a minimum. i would rather do black and grey in the interior.
