Default Favorite mod?

Just thinking about mods I've done and wondering about which one is my favorite.

three categories:

Exterior - mine is a tie between the J&J vertical grille and the WheelVintique Smoothies - oh yeah, the PTeazer LED tail lights, too. Guess I can't pick just one!

Interior - Replace worn-out stock steering wheel with one from a GT - silver spokes - looks cool with silver dash.

Performance - I haven't done much in this area - do have K&N filter, so guess that wins.

What's the mod you like the most on your Cruiser?

Short ram air filter - mostly because it's the only thing I've done so far that I'd class as a mod!

I think my favorite mod is the lowering springs, shocks/struts and alignment with a bit of negative camber front and rear. The car handles amazingly now!

Let's see....

Interior = dash mounted prism for seeing stop lights (big guy, used to strain my neck to see the lights)
Exterior = Bermuda Blacks
Performance = hmmm.... would say my IC but I think maybe better is my combination H&R springs and Tokico blues.... no, wait, just forgot about it, but it's definitely my LUK performance clutch!

OKAY, NEW RULE TO THIS THREAD - YOU HAVE TO POST PICTURES! LMAO

Interior =


Exterior =


Performance =

Default Favorite is the keyless power window operation mod

I'll call this a performance mod because it affects the way that a functional system operates: the ability to operate the power windows without the ignition switch needing to be on.
Power Window Modification SEE SAFETY WARNINGS

Exterior, the hood ornament



Interior, the wood dash

I would say that my favorite mod has to be my wrapped tails. (Thanks Danny)
They set the car off from "not just another PT Cruiser"

In my case, I got lucky and found the Woodview walnut dash overlay kit (NOS) on eBay. The seller still has a partial set (in English Burl) on eBay.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

Search the internet and you may find some PT Cruiser accessories sellers offering molded wood dash kits. Flat, vinyl peal and stick kits are easy to find, but the molded kits are (as far as I can tell) no longer manufactured.
