I'd do powerplant but I doubt I'll spend more than 1,000 in the next year if I did, going to be too busy doing exterior and yard improvements on my house. I'll probably look at an intake for sure though.
Next fall I guess I'll be getting steel wheels and winters so I could see a mix of stuff up to maybe at most $1300cdn.
I don't think I'll ever change the wheels (the stock ones actually look good), but someday I'll replace the tires. I would like to change the strut/shocks/springs and add a strut bar though... the car does lean when taking an off ramp at a fast rate. It definitely has great handling, but I would like to stay upwards and not sideways
Powerplant would probably be the place I would spend the money. I will be putting a good amount of audio equipment in the car (in between the lines that means lots of added weight), so I'll need a little more umff.
I would consider the antenna replacement, but I would never change the rest of the exterior. I don't need to rice it up . I'm also not a huge fan of leather, so I'll stay with the cloth. Either option is going to be hot as heck in the summer...
Car-puter is a cool idea. There was a company at CES this year that had a pretty decent looking computer/LCD touch screen combo. I'm sure a touch screen large enough would nicely replace the factory CD player.
my order is and will stay: tint(already done), infinity speakers and basslink, and then performance(probably lightweight wheels, lower, sway bars, intake, exhaust, and if it ever comes out, a chip), with the possibility of a s/c
