Im think of spending about $2500-$3000 on my car to make it look good and go a bit harder.
Ive got a Heritage Green EF Futura Sedan and ive got a 2.5' Redback Exhaust.
Im think of getting some EL GT rims and getting the car lowered and some extractors.
Whats the best springs to buy? I dont want the car too low as i use it everyday but i was thinking about some King Lows.
Im confident the EL GT's will look good.
Whats everyone else opinion on what i should spend my money on i.e Audio, Exterior and Engine Mods?

Audio doesnt do much for me, exterior good but i like to see money spent on the engine before dressing it up like a race car.

Rims and suspension are good choices - im running kings super lows and drive her to work every day... its not THAT bad (see user gallery). Maybe a dark tint if not already done.

Cam seems to be a fairly well-priced engine mod amoungst the 6cyl crowd, but would suggest extractors first.

On a green car I've seen - dark tinted windows and chrome wheels are the s**t. If you can score a basic sunroof and apply the same tint, from what I've seen on a few EB's looks the stuff. There are also some top looking 14-15' wheels from the old Chrysler Chargers that fit straight on.

Once you get it lowered, personally I'd leave the exterior at that. A suggestion - my suspension (Super lows and bilnstein shocks) were bought from a wreckers for $300 and the ride is as nice as could be but upgrade the sways.

My opinion - an Aussie car should look like an Aussie car, and if you have to look back to the 70's to get away from that fully-sic sht to find the last reminents of what it is to be an Australian then do it, and be unique.
