What ext mod would you do with $1000.

Hey guys, just wondering what aftemarket item you would probably get with a $1000.
I am currently debating whether to go for the vorsteiner trunk, a hamman front lip, or something to that extent.

i'm not big into exterior mods like trunks, lips, or spoilers. i'd get painted reflectors, new angel eye and cornering bulbs, and then i'd order the parts for the smoker's package delete and the rear fogs switch. the exterior looks great as it is to me.

Euro front bumper cover. Will address the muffler issue with a new, better looking exhaust, but that will be more expensive. Would also do H3 & H8 light upgrades.

Vorsteiner trunk for sure, that will really set the car apart and I love the flow of the rear boot.

1k isnt much at all... doesnt even cover a freaking lip. i think my first exterior will be a CF diffuser. Vorsteiner probably if they can modify it for me.

next would be a V trunk

next a lip

That's a fair quote for paint + install on the trunk. Let me know if you need the piece, we can set you up We also have a DVWP non-CF version in stock with no wait.
