I'm just about done paying for my 9000 and I'm ready to start saving for a modification. I'm thinking wheeles and tires. What do you guys suggest getting. I'm open to any good suggestions.

If you're interested in how the steering feels then changing the front wishbone bushes as well as the rear anti-roll bar bushes for poly will benefit the feel. A strut brace will improve matters nicely as well.
Going up the price range, 17" wheels and tyres sharpen up the steering whilst looking the part .

Cheap as chips:
1) Rear ARB poly bushes
2) Performance air filter
3) Remove heaplate if you have one

Getting more expensive:
4) Strut brace
5) Brembo discs and pagid fast road pads
6) More poly (be NVH aware)
7) Complete set of lowered springs and shocks

I've also been looking for exhaust pieces. Engström has a full JT 3" exhaust for $595 (£331.96) and the stage 3 ECM upgrade is the same price. The stage 3 wants me to have the 3" downpipe(optional race cat),2.5 or 3" freeflow cat-back, and an open-air air filter. but with the LPT ECM I have now will it limit the ammount of power I can get from my engine and turbo? or should I just stick with rims?
