Post 700$$ What would you do?

If you just picked up a new subaru , either R.S. or T.S. or WRX and had 700 bucks, what mods would you go out and get right away?

Hmmmm.. Probably new tires. That is if you don't plan on buying new wheels and tires real soon. If you are, then get a rear sway bar, links,intake, and maybe a short shifter and some tinted windows.

Definitely new tires! Seriously, I wish had gotten real tires sooner than I did... they really do make a world of difference!

Definitely tires... plus a rear anti-sway bar (if you get an RS)

Why do you ask?

Get your wife/girlfriend a nice necklace. If you spend money on her now, she might overlook spending money on the car later.

If i had it all to do over again(and who says i don't) start from the ground up. Tires, suspention and so on.

But to answer your ? Go for the tires, that will leave you with enough for about 2 struts or 2 springs.

Welcome to the world of the expensive after market.

Either A) buy gifts for significant other, so as to reduce future spending issues
OR B) Save up 1300.00 more and get the DMS Gold coil-overs. In two months, when your stock tires are bald, then buy new tires...

I spent my first 400 on a V1. The WRX's speedo told me I needed one.

Cut up the credit card and buy your stuff with real money when you have it. That 700$ will cost you (roughly) 1000$ in bills over the course of 2 years when you pay it off. Buy your parts one at a time and make calculated decisions. It sucks but you'll save in the end.

-buy a helmet too!
