Forgot the JE Pistons there. You'll probably end up needing them at some point.

Give yourself a headstart and replace every sensor on the car.

Why 8k hids?

4300 is the best light output. Or do you just really want blue/purple headlights?

Start by making some payments on it!

I personally am one person that doesn't think that it is right to mod a car that you dont 100% own. But I am weird like that...
I would say to pay off the loan on it, then worry about modding it.

I'm glad someone else agrees. It seems like you've been tight on money lately... I'd focus on owning the car before playing with it.

My 9000 still has a 3500 loan on it.

Can I afford to pay it off? Yes.

Why dont I? I have more fun spending the money on modifications and I only pay about $15 a month on interest. It was supposed to be paid off when we bought the 9-3 but instead I put a fuel system in it and some other stuff.

If Zach wants to play then by all means he should. IMO youth is a good time to spend money and have fun before your tied down to a spouse, a house payment, and little kiddies. Then its harder to spend money on this stuff!

On the other hand Zach chill out and take it slow man. Your list is going to change very quickly so pick a good spot and start out.

Best reason to buy a car with cash/check. It leads to immediate ownership/gratification.
Then modding it is 100% ok in my book!

That might be a good thing. You never have to worry about making the payments on them now. No excuse that the payment money went to an exhaust or something.

No car payments FTW. Though I don't remember what car payments are like, are they fun?

I have no idea if they are fun. I have never had one either.

I am also not a big fan of buying things that you dont have the money in the bank for, so thats probably why I have never had a car payment.

Good.

The car will be plenty fun to drive and enjoy. I just wouldn't want to see someone on here get into a tough spot after finding and having a difficult time buying such a nice example of a 99 viggen.
