What should I do next?

Got a little extra money from the tax return. 1500 (760 pounds) approximately. Any ideas?

I can get a TBE for about $1000. APS too. Cobb accessport is about $550. The suspension I want is about $1500. Its the JIC Magic coilovers. Cuscos are a little too rich for my blood.

you can get none coilovers which arn't height adjustable but can change the stifness fo the dampers by turning a control nob. norm about 1/2 the price of coilovers

ahh righto, althought bh unless your planning to use it (aka drive to track, lower suspension, do track day, raise suspension, drive hom) not realy worth the extra cost. also you need to have the alignment check ewach time you adjust them

Getting tein coilovers for mine i think though have been looking at others stick with the coilovers gaza-height adjustable rules nothing worse than buying suspension and it not being low enough.
