yeah, we just washed it, the car's got the sparco decals, the sparco seatbelt things, and the tinted window "mirror" like in the rear side, the small one. any ideas of what i can do to the car with little $$$$

Hey, you emailed me asking for suggestions, so here's my list

1. Clear sidemarkers
2. KDM fog lights
3. New Rims
4. Chrome KDM parts to match the chromed windows (if you like Chrome that is) Mirror covers, trunk piece, and door handles are all available
5. New Grille, there's several options out there, I like my KDM chrome/black grille from dreamka4u
6. Eyelids - love mine, my fav mod so far.
7. Springs (I know, I'm a hippocrit for saying so, since I don't have them)
8. OEM type high-spoiler (also not on my car yet) from Spoilerdepot.com (good price & quality, at least so I've heard.
9. Reverse-indiglo gauge faces.
10. Get in on the reverse-indiglo HVAC group buy, we need 1 more, hehe.
11. I love extra gauges, but some people don't. That's iffy, depending on the direction you take your car.

All of those mods at once can cost a lot of money, which you stated you're trying not to spend a ton of. Pick a smaller one to start with (like KDM Clear Sidemarkers) and work your way up to the big stuff (Rims, springs, & spoiler are the only things on that list over $100)


Good luck, and as always everyon on EXD will be here to help.

Just appearance mods? How about CAI & exhaust for a little more performance?

I don't get the sparco stickers I mean you just have the seat belt pads from them right... ?

yeah the pads and the stickers, sparco is known a while ago for me here and all of us (family) we mostly use sparco stuff for racing in rally.
Im interested in appearance first, i know thats kinda stupid, but i think its a better way to start before wasting turbo and stuff so, anyways i got the links and saw some neat stuff, btw, how much did u pay for the eyelids? heres my link to cardomain http://www.cardomain.com/id/jcr57 its a 02, haven't had a chance to change it, later

Nice looking car. Welcome to the site, good to see more interested Elantra owners.

My appearance suggestion... (like always) get clear sidemarkers.

It looks like Craig (from Compact Divisions) has his sight 1/2 way down while he's on vacation. I think I remember the price of the eyelids being $70ish. I don't remember for sure exactly, so don't quote me, but it's ballbark. That's for the Fiberglass ones, like I have, not the Carbon Fiber ones he also has available.

There's several options as far as CAI. But since you mentioned earlier in the Thread that money was an issue, I highly recommend that you go to eBay and buy a CAI for the 94-97 Accord 4 cylinder. Most of them can be had for about $50 shipped. Check out there thread about Accord CAI in the Performance Section for more info. Car looks great, man.

once i get my other elantraxd emblem i might take em off and put those there.

i recieved my interior chrome door handles on monday but havent had a chance to install them. it took me about 45 mins to get the first door (drivers side front) done today, the hardest part was getting the door panel back in place but tommorow hopefully ill get the other 3 done.
i also got my oem pedals yesterday and they are installed, the brake one has to come off so that you can replace it with the new one and the gas pedal you just mount it on top. i will post some pics when im done the other 3 doors

question: why the piece of wood behind your tire? have you crashed the car in the house while backing up before? :)

Before all else I would get the CAI, unless you already do I know this thread came back from the grave. Can I as why you havent removed your engine covers yet? They look like *** if you ask me, especially painted blue.

If I were you, which im not because that would make you me, and you would be driving my car...anyhow, this is what I would do.
