Question What next?

ok so there are so many things left to do for my car, god i want $$$$$$$$$ stat. Ive got a sound system i build for 600, a k&n intake and a TL sway bar. and ive got Richies J-pipe on order ... if the shop ever pulls it together.

I want to get a stock spoiler, i think they add to the car. I also want a new brake and rotor set up. i dont need the wheels cuz i will gravel blast them like my stock ones (i have too much fun in gravel parking lots and roads). I also think the car need a serious suspension redo and needs a drop. I ALSO want a new exaust to complement the jpipe but i cannot stand the ricer sound most aftermarket exhausts have ... and i wanna do something for the headlights either a retro (too much money) a simple DIY blackhouse, or i may but one of those crappy ebay projector sets and do a retro on that, not sure ... WTF I NEED TO GET RICH NOW can i have all your christmasses this year?

I don't know if that was a rant or a question

We are all in the same boat man, trying to spend all our money (some of us money we don't have yet)!

i looked at the group buy ... i don't know if i trust the company that has been going on for 4 years? What are the thoughts on the Megan Racing ones from that suspension list? they are the only ones i can find that have height and damper adjustments for like 745 ish.

Here is link to manufacturer:

I've heard the Megan's can be harsh, but with 32 position adjustability... ?

Also, Megan hasn't been around too long either, and until there recent re-branding, they weren't exactly a high-end company.

So since neither is a Tein or Koni... I'd call it a wash.
