need opinions...

ok so i just graduated highschool and just got back from europe, I have roughly 700 dollars to spend on w/e I want right now... I know I want stuff for my car... and I want some nice oakley sunglasses... my ? and what I want opinions on is this,

right now i'm looking at getting

-smoked led side markers. - 35.00
-LED tails. - 229.00
-red chrominum angel eyes - 79.50
-55W digital HID conversion - 160.00
and
-oakley oil rigs - 160.00

do you think i should get all this lighting stuff for my car or... get some performance stuff for my car, like headers or shocks. and for refernce my car is black. and i'll be smoking the tails more than likely if i get them, they're the euro style tails. everything for my car is coming from the xenon store as of right now...

-smoked led side markers. - 35.00 ( good price )
-LED tails. - 229.00 ( Can be bought for less, around ( $140 )
-red chrominum angel eyes - 79.50 ( might be able to get for less / also only good for shows and showing off, not driving )
-55W digital HID conversion - 160.00 ( Can be bought for less, around $110 )
and
-oakley oil rigs - 160.00 ( this is your thing, I dont buy expensive sunglasses )

Spin on oil filter is a great thing to have for changing your own oil.
Performance upgrades - Again this is your call, you have to ask yourself what you really want.

Re: need opinions...

$160 for hids?!?!?! thats expensive...what brand? lifetime warranty? look through our sponsors...lots have them for much cheaper

also do what you want, its your car....

right now if i had $700 for my car id be lookin at a sway bar set, and headers.....

red angel eyes will get you in trouble if you drive with them on...so they are kinda useless then.... smoked side markers...i did mine with a can of night shades and some clearcoat....amnd tails you should be able to find for under $200.....

Do you want to go faster or look better? It's really your call but quality HID's can be purchased for ~ $90.00 shipped.

Do the LEDs and HIDs... save the money for college, you'll miss it within the first semester.
