Hey so I just got a brand new flint tC and I am just looking for ideas to make it cooler. To be honest, This is my first new car, I am 19.. have about 2k to play with for enhancements/upgrades and I don't know too much about that stuff for it's all pretty new to me, hah. Was wondering what you guys suggest? and maybe the best places to get/do the upgrades?

it really depends on what you're trying to get out of your mods. Do you want to improve performance or add flashy gadgets? Check out the other threads in this forum, b/c you're definitely not the first to ask for guidance and I'm sure you won't be the last. Take the time to look into the different mods that are out there, our opinions about them as well as the people we've bought stuff from.

The very first thing I would do is get better tires even if you plan to keep the stock wheels;) There are some far better tires that are not real expensive, depends on your needs as to which is best.

Next I would get a rear sway bar at least if not a Hotchkis pair.

STB does help alot if you are into fast cornering.

At least slightly lower springs, I prefer linear rate over progressive. Progressive springs generally ride a bit soother and stiffen up as they compress but if you are into performance driving, especially autocross, etc, the changing rates can upset the balance of the car (this is at the extremes of the travel more so but I have experienced it and changed springs to linear)

Anyway, which areas are you really into modding, performance, audio or appearance? $2k can go along way if spent carefully in one of these areas but not very far if you try to do them all.
