    confused Need advice- Coilovers or exhaust???

    Right guys need your advice/ opinions.

    Had my Vec GSI just over a year now and although i love it, I'm starting to get bored...

    Getting very tempted to sell and buy an RX-8 (which I contemplated when i bought the Vec) but I'm going to resist and spend a few hundred on the Vec instead.

    Bit of a boy racer so would love the sound/ performance of a new exhaust, however I'm also sick of the handling so am also considering coilovers instead. Unfortunately can't really afford both plus don't want to spend that much incase I end up selling it shortly.

    All opinions welcome guys.

    Thanks.

    personally. thinking coilys going to set you back £400+ to get a set worth having. Why not just go lowering springs £100, then find a zorst for £300 or less? best of both worlds.....

    had the exhaust yes liked the sound but i had a full sport one and it was too loud under 3k revs so got bored pefer the sound of the engine
    last week fitted a cheap set of coilovers and had my windows tinted now i love my car and going round corners roundabout etc gets better and better its soo good having a car that feels connected to the road
    i would defo choose coilovers or lowering springs and sport shocks
