Cheap Mods

I want to work on fixing up my car a little bit and I'm doing brakes and tires soon. But I also wanted to explore cheaper mods that I could possibly do. Right now I'm going to tint my car (don't know how much yet) and buy either the AEM or Injen intake. Any other mods that don't involve too much $$ that you guys think are worth it or have done yourself. I heard that filters are cheap to replace, etc. (i.e. i put interior neons and did that myself and I had a great time wiring it etc and I want to do more stuff along those lines)

^^ I believe V2 is more expensive. You can also get a K&N typhoon, very nice intake for a decent price

You could also blackhouse your headlights, if you havent already, and/or tint your tail lights, really inexpensive mods that give the car a sleeker look. Also, fog lights make the car look better, IMO, and is pretty inexpensive too.

Okay right now I'm getting new pads/rotors and leaning towards a drop. V2 is a must as well as the sway bar. However, on ebay the V2 seemed just as expensive as the injen. I was a little surprised that after a year the price is the same if not a little more. Does anyone know of a site besides ebay because on ebay its about 250 for the cheapest? I enjoyed putting neons in the interior so might put one in the trunk and will definetly do something to the front lights don't know what yet.

oh man great vid thats pretty much the direction i want to go towards as well. I have the neons in the same place hidden. So was the gauges a hard mod to do? Also, are the dome lights etc easy to change the bulbs and if so where did you buy them? And what kind of mats are those they look good with the lights.
