Exclamation Ideas???

Im new on the forum.
I just bought my White GA GT. she is a 99 with a 3.4L V6. not a dent scratch ding etc. on her. she has 105, 713 on her.
Im looking at givin it a more......"BA" look.
I was thinkin bout lowering a little, maybe a inch.
Thinkin bout debadging it except where it sat "GT"
I was also thinkin some black rims, maybe a body kit thats simple but sweet.
I am dong blue LEDs by the intake area. and possibly the wheel wells. maybe under neath. not for sure.
Help me out with other ideas? and let me know if you think these ideas will work and look good?
Thanks....RockstarCoupe99

Drop - Eibach Springs w/ KYB Struts
New Headlights (Preferably Black clear corners)
Cold Air Intake
Black Rims.. (go for it)
Body Kit - no go try to avoid, none of them look good on the GA, Try the SC/T Kit, looks awesome with a drop and rims

partsforyourcar.com - (Struts & Springs, SC/T Body Kit)
ebay.com - (Many Headlights to choose from) (Also check on struts and springs)
mpracing.org - (Cold Air Intakes)

Go for the debadging it'll give it a cleaner ride, Many ways to do this is with a small pieces of string and any kind of adhesive remover. i like goo gone but anything works good. just rub the string back and forth behind the emblem and when they're off just go to town with the adhesive remover and you'll have a cleaned up ride.

As far as LEDs do whatever makes you happy it's your ride, Personally i think LEDs under the car are outdated but to each their own. Its your car do what makes you happy. Have fun and enjoy it, thats the whole point to modding, just dont overkill it with decals and stick on scoops and you should be fine.

Changing out the front lights to halo projectors and change out your rear tails or just tint rears with VHT. As for LEDs underneath i have them on mine they are ok to each their own. But i like my interior LEDs much better!! In my opinion only one body kit looks right on these cars and that's the RKSport kit. The SC/T kit is a very nice kit also.

I would stay away from any LED's on the outside, especially blue. You can't drive around with them on anyway because blue is for police vehicles only and you'll get pulled over and given a ticket.


If you wanna drop it, eibach springs are the best. I would start out with springs, some rims, and exhaust. Those three mods will make the biggest difference in the look/sound/feel of the car with the least amount of time and money involved.

WTF. You have a motor with 8K less miles on it than your current 100K+ engine?

What did the five fingers say to the face?

you bought xtreme's motor?

OP, if you have two engines id say do a build before you do anything else. itll take your mind of the fact the stock this car is like molases(sp?) in the winter, while you save up for appearance. got me to keep my car as long as i have

you have options for tails other than stock so go for it, don't tint them. Best headlights is a black housing with clear corner & a projector retrofit.
