    Ok, I decided to find a car with exceptional gas mileage, innovative electronics, and modern day body style. All without breaking the bank! You all know what I am talking about so I decided to post a picture and let you know the total cost. You be the judge!

    First you must use all your connections (legally of course)! Then, do your homework (use this website and many others out there). Then above all, be creative!

    Caliper paint was $9 plus two hours of careful work.
    Wheels and tires were $1447 at Discount Tire
    Konig Wheels 8.5 19 with a 45mm offset
    Motivo Tires 235/35/R19
    Window Tint was $140
    Stereo was $650 to include JL 12" sub with Fosgate Amp

    I sold my factory wheels and tires for $800 out the door on Craig's list to a guy who had an 2014 LX. He was very happy with his new look as well.

    The total for the mods was $2213. After I sold the factory wheels and tires, I have the perfect car for $1413.

    I loose about 20% in ride comfort and road noise with the wider/low profile tires and it took about 1 hour for me to figure out how to re-calibrate the tire sensors (TPMS) but all is well! The speedometer is off by 1 mph when compared to my speedo app.

    i would like to get more info about the stereo. Does adding a sub and amp voids your warranty?

    Generally when you remove OEM stuff and replace it, it will void the warranty

    Agreed, however I am simply adding an amp to increase the power for the speakers. The infotainment console will not be replaced.

    Might be ok if you had the dealership do it.

    Adding amp shouldn't void your screen's warranty.

    Car looks great!

    Is the shark fin antenna on the car the original?

    How much did you tint the windows? I need to do that soon but I can't decide what percentage on each window just yet. Looks like your driver and passenger are probably a bit lighter?

    Love the caliper paint and rims. So 19 seem to be pushing it with ride quality. I guess 18s are the way to go for best oF both worlds

    I'm sure, but cheaper than voiding a warranty?

    Yeah. That is correct as well. Any idea how much they will charge for the installation?

    No clue, labor rates vary depending where you live, you'd have to call the local dealer and ask, get several quotes from different dealerships.
    I'm waiting for a quote from my dealership on changing the horn, I hate the little car meep meep horn, I want one people actually hear!
