Never really been a fan of black wheels ... sometimes looks good though.

Don't know much about commercial suspension (note the spelling). The only suspension I've done is design from scratch for an open-wheeler.... Doesn't really apply here.

As for muffler - if it's looks only, why not just get exhaust tips ... cheaper if you're not looking for performance anyway.

no offence, but if you're trying to get a non-performance enhancing muffler to improve engine sound, don't go around calling other people dr rice.
I don't mind you doing that mod, but I'm not ragging on other people's mods either.

Then why'd you go to tirerack in the first place??? And as far as searching on forums, that might take you some time.

Whats the point of painting your wheels? They're ugly right now, and they'll be ugly painted black. You'd be better off waiting till you can afford nice wheels.

Its called constructive criticism.

If I really wanted to sound harsh, I would have said:

Whats the point of modifying that ugly piece of crap? You're better off saving up for a nicer car. Dumbass.


But I didn't so its all good.

Well, honestly, I wouldn't modify it myself, but its really up to you, and if you'll like it more modified, then go for it.

Yes, he must follow the Neon tree:

Neon < Neon R/T < SRT-4

Its like a really bad video game where you can only choose between three cars.
