:facepalm: Prepare your flamesuit.

Honestly, I'd work on getting all the other stuff. Keep the $400 for car payments (if you have them).

Then save up and start buying bolt-ons.

green HID's? Why? Just why? I would save your money for all the tickets you're going to get.

Ark seems overpriced- There are more exhaust options out there. Test pipe means no catalytic converters. If you live in a place with strict emissions this would be a bad idea. It creates the most power for an exhaust though on a turbo car. It also results in a check engine light. Personally I think ark isn't the greatest sounding exhaust, and not sure about the highest performance.

Superluxes are amazing though, and they're becoming VERY hard to find.

at least the OP's HIDs aren't purple/violet..
get the SuperLux tails, tint, springs, emblems and non green HIDs that actually allow you to see the road further ahead :)

Honestly, it's all in how you prioritize things. Believe it or not, $1200 for an ARK exhaust system that includes a downpipe and a test pipe is not a bad deal. It's actually pretty good.

Also, as long as you retain your primary O2, then you should not have much to worry about in regard to passing any smog/pollution tests.

Yes, the 3.8 Carnet systems will be available in March. We are currently working on stocking quite a few 2.0 systems though.

Oh and $160 for Sportlines? They must be used or imitations. Buyer beware.
