$1000
 
If $1000 was all you had to mod your MK6 what would you do

Im thinking coilovers and stage 1.. anyone else know something better than me? lol

good luck stopping there....pretty good choices though if you can actually get both for that much

Stage 1 is about $600 on sale (+tax). That leaves $300 for coilovers and $100 for the needed alignment. I don't think I would feel safe on $300 coilovers. I would do springs or save another $1000 for quality parts.

^ ditto. Do one thing well, not 2 things poorly. Decent coilovers + alignment will cost you right around $1000 if not a little more. You could also do tune + downpipe.

Also consider that most places charge labor for the tune.

Are you going for performance, or are you going for visual mods? If you want the look of a lowered car go ahead and do a suspension mod. If you actually want to add performance I'd suggest...

1) A Stage 1 Tune
2) A new set of high performance tires

I know you can't afford both as a good set of high performance tires is about 1K anyway.

Nothing.....save up and then get tune, wheels/tires and coilovers, etc.

:word: this is not enough money for high end mods. do it right the first time.

You can get some nice light wheels for $1,500 bucks, then sell your boat anchors for $500 bucks. Lose 15-20lbs of unsprung weight just like that!

LED interior light kit and stage 1.

or stage 1 and a used modshack intake.

2PointSLO 01-06-2013 08:34 PM

coilovers

save the rest for future upgrades...

JammingJay 01-06-2013 08:38 PM

Stage I + S3 IC (assuming you install this yourself)

Should be right @ $1000 on sale
