I need to list out and prioritize my problems...

HEres my list of what i want to fix up right now and im trying to figure out a way to do it all for cheap but nciely.


1) I need to refinish my front 2 rims, one has terrible curb rash the other is jsut peeling hardcore from i guess brake dust (**cheap chrome***mumble* )

2) I need to get my tranny flushed and i dunno what fluid to get. Going on 184 000 KM now

3) Need a new hood, my hood is rusted/ bubbled from anywhere, dunno what to get I kinda want a custom one but cf is so expensive/ problem matic, look at my pos spoiler*mumble*

4) Need a new front bumper/ rear spoiler

5) Need to pound out my front grille assembly becuase its sdented in from when some faggot ****ed it up, some homo hit me a while ago

6) Need new bulbs, all new bulbs, front headlights, brights, fogs, turn signals, interior halogeons, ash tray bulbs, etc. Does anyone have a bulb chart or somethin.... I also dunno what bulbs to buy to get that pimpin bmw blue effect



Some other stuff but im gonna ignore those... they are more $$/ mechanical... lol



So some help Plz.....

i would get the bulbs first cause there cheap bro and it will make a big difference in my opinion and it wont sadden you as much becuase then you can say all of your loghts are perfect once again then i would get a hood which will be nice as well
and i believe getting your tranny flushed wont be too expensive so those are 3 things off your list with oviously not cheap but not as expensive as lets say a front bumper and then you already have 3 things done to your car
well thats my 2 cents hope it helps

shamis..wat are the other problems? u mean "problematic" not "problem matic" right?

first of all..you dont pound out the front grill..im sure there are clips...this isnt like the seat u were punching back in at the yorkdale meet..

i'd say work on those mechanical problems rather than wasting money on getting a new bumper/re finsihing rims when u dont need to right now...

and which lights do u want the blueness for? i can supply xenon lights for you to get the OEM look but...u got the $$?

If you need to get your rims fixed try Carcone's in Aurora. (I thinkthey have a web site Carcone.com. They're very reasonably priced and do good work.

Maintenance first!!
Get those light bulbs replaced, and fix your brakes!
Then you can worry about all the ''cosmetic'' stuff which doesn't do anything for the car except look good. I think making your car drivable, has more priority.

I second that, make your car run PERFECT first, you'll apprecaite much more. I would get the tranny fluid replaced if I were you. Its not expensive. If you don't care about keeping reciepts than theres many places that will take cash

..and might be unsafe...and will cost you MORE down the road if you don't fix some of the problems now.

For example...

If your brakes are squeaking because they're wearing out, you CAN continue using them instead of paying $80 to replace them, and when they finally give in, you can damage your rotors costing you $200 to replace, PLUS $80 for the pads.
That is of course, if you don't kill somebody, yourself, or destroy your car when your brakes fail.

it's just a scenario, but the mechanics of the car are much more important than the looks of the car. Mechanical first, appearance mods as a treat once it works.
