Good reason get some supertones and a H6 rear upgrade.

nice start man, looks pretty clean. good set of early mods. I would recommend the supertones too...even though I don't have them yet myself on my RS, I want them too. but thats more like a want thing for me, so that can wait, but you need a horn and I would just got straight to the supertones(not only is it a loud horn, its looks sick too, haha). good luck!

in your case you might want to get the calipers as well.

its super easy to do, i did it. the BEST way to do it would be to order new rotors, like powerslots/brembo blanks,ect. order new pads, i hear hawk pads are pretty good, and some stainless steel lines, like goodridge or so. get it all put together and bleed the brakes with some better fluid, like some motul 600 or so.

hope this helps.
