first thing was a dc sports front strut bar
i put led's on the floor the day i got it, but i did such a ****ty wiring job they only lasted for a season. they are out now but i bought a new pack so when i have a spare day i'll do it agin and make it look much nicer.
tint the first week i bought it
then cd player
First thing was clear side markers, the day before I got it.
On the day, I changed the HU to my Kenwood, and mounted luxury look license plates with HST holders on it.

The second day, I replaced the original front speaker for my MB-quartz compo set.

The 4th day, I replaced some bulbs,removed the logo's on the back, and more of this little stuff
(the 4th day is today hehe)
The first year it was the 17" wheels/tires , the next was the intake (I finally got tired of the local squirrels storing their seeds and nuts in the factory airbox) . The 3rd year I got the Tibby swaybar and did the clutch spring mod , and finally this past Wednesday I replaced the clutch with a XTD Stage-2 clutch kit . Next year I'm think of going to a stage 3 with the lighter flywheel .
Very first mod was Pioneer MP3 Head Unit and CD Changer (the CD changer technically went in first but wasn't functional until I got the head unit up and running). I bought the car on a Friday and did this on Sunday night (literally.... all NIGHT). I went to work Monday morning on 0 hours of sleep. But it was worth it.
funny how after all the years and mods you can still remeber the first mod like it was yesterday. hell i still remember my first drive in the tib, after that i was hooked

I still remember my very first mod to my first scoupe, over 7 years ago now.
Removed the towbar, logo's and tainted the rear lights hehe.
The basic stuff.

Did a few more thing to the Elantra by now.
I like especially the clutch mod and the 24h clock:D
upgraded the cassette player to a sony HU...which has been replaced ever since
New Rims and tires and 4 days after I bought the car
mine was a Short Ram Intake off of ebay... best 30 bucks ever spent.
first - window tint, all visors at 32 miles
then rear wing. chrome extras and wheels/tires
last year was body kit (lat 16,000 miles)
Mine was Full removal of the original intake system (including the parts you can't see) and adding a SRI from EBAY $38. Now it sounds GOOD
My first mod was short ram intake then exhaust
Mine was GT Rims..... I hated them hubcaps....
i painted my grille black

this was a later picture after i did clear corners but the front grilles were all the same colour as the car so i spiced it up a bit

Now it looks like this, i re fibreglassed the grille and it's much more smooth now
See less See more
18mm sway bar IIRC (Which will be replaced this year with the 19 and poly bushings)
My first mod was installing a lead foot on top of the accelerator pedal
