Can't decide what to do next, performance or cosmetic mod.

Thanks.
The snow is slowing melting away here in NYC so as I drive, salty water splashes up and dries into a white residue all over. I literally quick detail my car every time after I go out. It's sick how much attention I give to this car, I wish I could be this dedicated in other things in my life!!!!

I use Maguire's quick detail spray, its been working pretty well for minor stains and dirt marks.

Hey Akura, thanks!

Well, so far, I'm in the market for the

1. tints
2. short shifter
3. CAI
4. OEM body kit
5. springs
6. rims

This is my first real new car, and a good friend told me to be careful with the "mod bug". So he suggested I make a list and prioritize. This way, I dont get side tracked with my money and time in buying things like seat belt cushions, and hyper white interior lights.

What else do you think I should add?

Holy wax job batman! Dude...you're going to blind someone with that shine! Congrats on your purchase! I'm sure you'll LOVE it. I still check on mine every few minutes or so just to make sure that it's still there! Can you tell this is my first car? LOL

Hay nice ride! :)

If you live in the NYC, there is only so much you can do...

Just yesterday I notice there is a fair size scratch on the right front bumper. From the looks of it, its not from an other car. More like from a concrete wall or something. I bet its those parking guys at the parking garage.

Oh, not to mention the marks on the rear bumper... :soapbox:

I actually didn't wax it, I used "Quick detail" from Maguire's wax. Its some kind of polymer.

Has anyone had any experience with Zaino products on a black TSX? I"m about to order their stuff, but don't know the traits of it compared to wax. ANybody know? thanks in advance.

Zaino products are excellent from what I hear. I use Klasse products (among other things) myself. :)

Do you feel the OEM body kit is enough, or does it have to be lowered a little bit to complete the look? this is my first car, and to me, its already pretty damn low for a stock car. I can't even fit my fist in between the wheel well and the tire!!

Who did your install of the OEM body kit?
