    Been putting in some overtime and have some spare cash. I call it spare cause if the wife knew what I intend spending it on that's what she would go.

    I was wondering what is the next performance upgrade for the car. Already have a re-map and 18" rims, so I'm looking for the most gain for the least pain.

    Any suggestions?

    Suspension, rollbars and simple wheel adjustments (camber/toe). Followed by brakes I reckon.
