yah TL sways would be consider cheap for a xmas gift... but they are hard to find since they are out of stock at the moment...

If it was something cheap for xmas.. i probably get a something like tsx steering, or the tl engine cover... something that is a show mod and not a performance mod...

ya, tint too...

OR

how about just getting a gift certificate from somewhere, since most performance mods are expensive, and you can stash out some of your money and buy what you want..

How about $100 cash?

Or the HFP aluminum shift knob from www.HardTopGuy.com? I bought one for $41 including tax and shipping. I don't have the HFP kit but so what...I like that aluminum look.

Merry Xmas!

I got TL one day ago from acuraautoparts247.com
43 dollars shipped. DHL is hell because it takes a week.
Edit: TL sway rather, i dont think DHL ships the car.

you can get TL engine cover, that's only like $30 bucks.

or V6P stuff, grounding kit, door locks, etc.

yeah, i just got asked for my xmas list. im thinking some blue LEDs for the interior (doors and map lights) as the cheap gift, hfp suspension as the expensive one, but i need something in the 100-200 dollar range. i've got the TL sway, i've got the injen cai, and i have an auto, so no short shifter kit. any suggestions?

Forget all the cheap $hit. It'll be cool for the first 5 mins. First get an intake. Doesn't have to be an AEM. They're all the same. Then get an HID kit. And finally, get the OEM kit and you're good to go.
