I say go for the mags. Or you can get your zorst and shred thru ur tyres that are on the car now, and then u can get mags.

If you get your exhaust you will probably need new tyrres anyway - especially when you hear the difference in note when you load it up.

Definately the exhaust first. That's the way I did it and I would do it first again. The exhaust is only gunna set you back $250, more if you want extractors. Mags are gunna be a lot more expensive!

It'll still probably be cheaper than the wheels. I mean Pacy comp extractors, 2 1/2" mandrell bent and exhaust tip won't be more than a grand.
17" wheels with sport tires is like $1500 to 2 grand...

If your going to get big mags (like 17"), the car looks 4WDish if it's not lowered first.
99chris99 - I got quoted, Pacemaker comps and 2 1/2" hi flow cat for $650 (that's before cash discount).
Exhaust shouldn't be more than an extra $200 to 300 (maybe a bit more for a fancy tip! And if you probably can have your old cat modified (which is usually free) instead of the hi flow. So there's no way it should cost more than a grand, shop around!
