    First one I can remember ever doing was boring out the throttle body on my first car. Second was an exhaust I think....

    well the most i ever had was a deck and then moved up to adding some speakers but in the last two days I have ordered coilovers and a cold air intake and bought a deck, amp and two subs .. of course these are for my new car that is still at the shop getting some body work and paint job. I am pretty excited now and its getting kinda addictive ebay is my new best friend lol
    I still know little to nothing about cars but I am learning :)

    On the GTi, my first mod was a rebuilt head w/ Schrick variable intake manifold.

    On the Integra, it was a lowering kit of shocks AND springs.

    I didn't really go 'round being a douche about things lol research

    Yeah, but the poor truck probably didn't think the same!!!! You guys still have that thing? And how many times did your old man have to replace the thing? I was waitng for the whole rear end/leafs to just peel out from underneath of it everytime you took the corner by the smoking section. See the rear keep going and the truck turn! lol

    By the way, first "mod" was stereo., . . . second was alarm, then a volt meter.

    My first mod was an alarm, then intake, exhaust, body kit, wheels, nitrous, ignition, interior. Then I went a little nuts and did an engine swap with the biggest engine that would fit :)

    Exhaust I bought from Gregg peet was the first mod I made and then I bought wheels from Stan. Both items which have now been upgraded and resold. I sold the exhaust to smokey and the wheels to some guy who used them on his vw golf. That was along time ago now, the dx wheels actually looked pretty decent.
