okay so its that time of year. i know im going to put the money im getting back into the foz.. but what to buy? i need some help deciding.

option #1: new 05+ sti lateral links, whiteline swaybars front and back, and kartboy endlinks.

option #2: save up a little bit extra and get some brembos (or legacy gt brakes)

option #3: source out a vf43 and put it on with my sti stop mount. and get a protune.


these are all things i want in the future.. i just cant decide what i want to do first. vote! :Banane35:

If you gonna do option 1 with your tax money, you should call them

IRS lateral links, IRS swaybars front and back, and IRS endlinks



Anyway, good luck with your tax

I will stick with option 1.

I'm picking up a Borla replica header (slightly used) for $100 today, and will be looking for a cheap (but solid) cat-back. I may also order the center console extension thingy, and wire that up with a better CB and extra power outlets inside of it. Oh, and I'll spend a few hundred getting a 60k service done at AZP; my Foz just hit 110k, but I got a new timing belt at 82k while other work was being done under the extended warranty, so I just had to pay for the belt. That should cover half of my refund, the rest is going into catching up with bills and the credit card.

What? You guys get money back? I guess I shouldn't be maximizing my take home pay..

Also, don't we pay taxes this year on the credits we got last year?

#1 or #3 are the best bet. #2, i think youd be happy w/ better rotors/pads/fluid. unless you want bling bling. :bling:

as far as #1 is concerned - id skip the lateral links and just find some lateral link support tabs like the whitelines.

Not on federal. On the state side, it varies from one state to the next. Err, assuming we're both thinking of the same credits. :icon_biggrin:

I was looking at my quarterly payments for 2009 and noted that they were higher than 2008, and also noted that my income was down 40% from 2008 so it seemed like a big refund was coming our way, good for new tires and maybe suspension, along with some stuff for the home. Then I got the W-2 from my wife's first job last year and it seems she claimed 46,000 dependents, paying in hardly anything for 2009. :chair: Ah well, better than giving out that interest-free loan...
