Believe it or not, when I bought this car in November, I said I wasn't gonna touch it. I had never modded a car before and never really thought I would. Well... I was wrong, haha.

Brakes:
- DBA 4000 T3 Slotted Rotors, Front and Rear
- Hawk HPS Brake Pads, Front and Rear
- Goodridge Stainless Steel Brake Lines

Suspension:
- Mann Engineering Stage 1 Suspension Package (all Whiteline):
--- Front and Rear Swaybars
--- Rear Subframe Inserts

Just ordered some stuff!

Brakes: DBA 4000 T3 slotted rotors (front and rear), Hawk HPS pads, and stainless steel lines plus high performance fluid. Install set for Monday at Mann Engineering. I would've gone with a full brake kit but I wasn't prepared to spend over $6k! I might paint my stock calipers soon.

Also, a set of Tom's taillights are being delivered Tuesday. I'm going to attempt the install by myself, looks simple enough.

Last and not as exciting, I also ordered a set of WeatherTech floor liners.

Getting some small suspension upgrades today at Mann Engineering! It's their Stage 1 suspension pack, which is basically front and rear swaybars and new bushings for the rear subframe and steering rack.
