    Lightbulb Growing shopping list

    I'm due a commitment bonus in March so I'll have a bit of disposable income to throw at the car, so far on the shopping list after a (service and new tyres) I have:

    Tints
    XP2 alloys Refurbished and recoated in Gunmetal
    APEX lowering springs
    DTUK CRD-T
    VXR fog surrounds (to finish off bumper)
    Eonon D5121 (hopefully with TV/bluetooth/satnav/rear screens)
    K&N or similar panel filter

    Anymore suggestions or ideas would be appreciated for everyone.

    Thanks

    Def getting a map and a FMIC, want an edition 100 interior then its a lot of little bits like above, get some recent pics of your car up, might get some styling tips too

    Default

    Freebie ones
    Adjust headlight beam hight
    Have you got insignia washer jets yet, cool and useful mod for £5 quid

    Reasonable cheap:
    Could add Hids
    Silver/chromed indicator bulbs all around
    the forbidden product that is an anagram of copom
    auto dim mirrior
    illuminated sunvisors
    rear interior lights
    Various LED bulbs, number-plate, inside and the few others not part of bulb check so no stupid strobing issues
    should get all that lot for £200 quid if you hunt the bargains on the bay of E


    bit more expensive

    B4 shocks
    Upgraded SAAB droplinks
    A few Polybushes
    Rear electric windows
    Leather/Half leather inteior, SRI GSI or VXR if you can get them at a good price
    If your super brave could add
    TMPS
    Climate Control

    Thats everything that I have seen get done on here from various people that worth doing, majority of them rekon could get then for under £500 as well with a bit of bargain hunting etc

    Most of that is my wishlist for mine, a 1.8 is slow though so could well just upgrade to a VXR oneday instead lol

    Unfortunately the taxman still gets his grubby little mitts on it so there is a budget, but that just depends how much once I've paid off some debts etc.

    I've added HIDS.
    Like the idea of the chromed bulbs.
    Auto dim mirror - I like that idea!
    Got the sunvisors, rear light and various LED.

    Considered shocks- Good idea
    I like the idea of rear electric windows and half leather.

    After seeing what it takes to fit climate control- wow!

    I've got some more research
    Thanks
