    Talking Mods! Where to begin?

    I've had my 2014 Black Rex for a week and a half now, she's a hatchback, I'm itching to mod! I only have 400 miles on her right now but in the NEAR future i'm planning to get the following items:

    Exhaust (I'm leaning twoards the Single pipe BLITZ exhaust)
    Red RallyArmor Mudflaps
    PERRIN Shift Knob (Ordered and coming)
    Grimmspeed License plate relocator (Ordered and coming)
    Short shifter (Either KartBoy or COBB)
    Coilovers ( ? ? ? ? ?)
    Lip Kit (OEM?)
    BOV (COBB??)
    License Plate delete (COBB)
    Wheels! ( I really want to save up for some TE37, But for now, powercoat the rims red)
    Fog lights (Dealer installation in a couple of weeks)

    I'm pretty sure i missed alot of the things but for now, this is the only ones i could think of. Again, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I was just itching to ask, WHERE DO I START? and how long do i have to wait before i can put a exhaust on my car (because of the "Break in" period). Am i missing something? Thanks

    Regarding dealer installed fogs, they are a waste of time/money. They don't really function well at all.

    Are you planning on just a catback/axleback, or a full turboback exhaust? If you are going full turboback, that has to be tuned for.

    If you do get a BOV, which is not necessary at all at this point, make sure if is a full recirculating one.

    This is a worthwhile thread to take a look through if you haven't already --->First Modifications - what to do and not to do

    In regards to coilovers, how much do you know about these? If this is a DD car I would NOT recommend getting coilovers as they are a very rough ride. I would recommend instead a good spring and strut combo.
