    You need to narrow down what part of the car you want to change, and what your budget is before anyone can really give you any advice.

    Having been down the body modification road before, I say put your $1500 into performance mods.

    If you mean shitty by the ride's awful well do some suspension. Or if you mean looks awful then keep it stock while freshening up the body. If the paints shit then take it to mako and get repainted the same color. And it wont cost a bagillion dollars. Either way loose the rims get some 15 or 16 inch rims. Eighteens are way too big for an EG and quite frankly look ghetto as hell

    I agree. The giant wheels are probably negating whatever performance mods you've done...

    You can't add pics until you have passed greenhorn status. Keep posting and you will be out of it in no time...

    I couldnt tell you with that little pic you put up. But either way im decided on the 18's so yes change them sum beaches. But first you need to address your maintenance issues

    15" or 16" would be my only suggestion on the wheels. those 18s ARE really bad. sorry, i dont like them.

    but, to each his own. :thumbsup:

    you dont listen very well do you. We are telling you to go smaller because its better for your car. Plus if you want people to look at your car and think it clean then 17's aren't going to do it. It seems your going for more an all looks no go style
