Cool Alright...It's mod time.Help me decide.

Here is the scoop.

I'm gonna mod my car, But don't know exactly what yet. But I want to do it asap.

A friend of my that will go unnamed MIGHT build a custom CAI and sell me one. But that's quite unlikly.

So vote for the best mod for the price and keep in mind I am getting rid of my car in about 2.5 years, so therefore I am dropping serious cash for nothing in the end.

for the money, clears make a huge difference in the look of your ride. but it depends on how much you want to spend. if you can afford it get it all.

Depends on what your next car is gonna be. You might be able to transfer mods to your next ride. If you cant transfer mods, then just go for cosmetic mods.

Get the ECIS & clears! You get one performance mod, one cosmetic. Sounds good to me!

If I knew I were going to keep a car for only 2.5 years I would spend minimal money on mods. I voted for the clears b/c that's something you can take off and sell easily, and chances are the next owner will like it too if you keep it on.
