Your OK with all of them except the roll pan. That will eat up a good chunk of funds. Where you start is up to you. Looking at the list again, you might need a good bit for the wheels depending on what you pick.

Thumbs up Re: 1200 bucks to spend

Yeah, $1,200 won't cover it all, but here's my preferred order:

Wheels(VW or Audi)
Short Antenna
HID head lights
Fog lights
Roll pan

hmm lets see personally I'm a sucker for performance over looks so I'd probably start with plugs wires and coil and I like that little coil/wire heat shield modern performance makes.

then probaly go with an intake like the air raid or the k&N stil un decided there.

Probably go with some headers, cat, and cat back exhaust (lookin at the JBA headers since they say they are smog legal in cali and magnaflow 50 state legal direct fit cat, and probably the heartthrob dual exit exhaust system)

that there would probably eat up most if not all of the 1200

maybe lights after that HID fogs tail lights etc. or suspension

of course I am lucky the previous owner did the tinting defiently put tint at the top of the list the car looks awesome with some tint LOL.
