Well... assuming all is taken care of this week with my fuel situation, I will be looking at at next step for my car. I have paint scheduled in my spring budget.. but I need something to do over the winter..
I've come up with flares with fatty tires, or maybe the water injection, or maybe a DIY intercooler sprayer (yes I would build a VFAQ on it). You vote.. I'm open to any suggestions though.

Since I didn't see "turbo the IS" or "refinish my cam cover" I went with fat rubber and flares. You've got the goods to back up those looks now. White, stripes + flares, big rubber = badass.

i vote water injection, then fender flares. i don't see much point in an intercooler sprayer if you're already considering water injection

Intercooler sprayer the only reason worth mentioning is because I have researched the hell out of it for my DSM. It can be done for around 80 bucks considering I have a beast Co2 tank laying around.

Just a FYI I have a new cover and its mighty fine! Now I cannot be harrassed about my chipping, peeling, orange/metal valve cover. I will however, entertain offers for it, keeping in mind its very antiqued ! hah.

I voted for the flares, since you are planning on painting in the spring.
