wheels or headers/exhaust are next
unsure due to funds and such

a good month or 2 at work could benefit the modding greatly
kinda have the urge for a csl trunk as well

Great job with the muffler delete. Really clean looking finished product and a nice exhaust note

Nice upgrades. Really like the stance of your shifter. I had a lever like that in my E30.. Loved it!
