Upgrades!!

Zzperformance billet upper motor mounts. When arrived the chrome wasnt as polished as i wanted them to be so i did a little sanding and polishing to smooth and bring out that chrome finish, that way and can match all the other chrome under the hood.

Also switched out my reverse LED lights. These babies shine about 20 ft away!

Yes sir, my price is nothing near yours tho lol, mine was 15.99 for the pair. Also 6k 50 watt CREE. I was surprised how bright they are for the cost.

Yeah I'm curious about them as well. I was considering intense racing coils but I'm wondering how ZZP's will be.

Sounds good to me. I have lowering springs (not installed) but I'd really like to have coilovers. It's my daily driver and we get a decent amount of snow up here in Michigan. So haven't the ability to lower my car in the summer and raise it in the winter would be nice.

Use lowering springs amd be your neighborhood snow plow

Just the abililty to lower or heighten the look of your car in certain situations is what the buyer needs. My guess on cost is close to $1200
