Wheels > rims!!!!!

You're doing a decent job for only being 15. But you need to get rid of the ebay intake piping, change those wheels, get new turn signals. Other than that, not bad. Whenever you do lower it, make sure you do it right. Dont cheap out and only buy springs. Get struts, boots/stoppers, bushings, ect....

Big set? What are you talking about? Coilovers i assume. Well that's good if you do. But just remember, since yours is a DD car, it will be quite a bit rough of a ride. And they could wear out faster since they are meant for the track.

And the intake, i suggest you get a better one right away. The shit quality ebay turns out will rust from the inside out. Next thing you know, you'll have holes throughout that thing.

One last tip - Start using punctuation. It makes reading easier on us all...

IMO your doing what I did with my corolla. Your going the ricer path. I then got a Mustang and realized how dumb it really is. You should change the tails or night shade them. You have great initiative for a 15 year old. Just don't go and buy obnoxious body kits and stuff. Keep it clean and simple. My $0.02.

i know what you meann i think im just gona lower it and then maybe a gt sideskirt to give the side a little more design.......plus all that extra wieght from the body is gona slow you down....

also if you dont install them right they look lke crap

i like the engine mods though cant go wrong with them

Oh yeah if my car was say.....gray or black the rims would be black/grey and the tails would also be tinted soo the stteel blue color is more towards chrome

How fast are you planning on going in this beast?:facepalm:
Tell you the truth I'm not really feeling your car at all, the wheels and lights don't help:dunno:
But as long you're happy and considering your age I guess its alright.
