Thanks, its the wonderful Phantom Black Pearlcoat which pictures can't do justice. Just a few basic mods and/or add-ons:
Splash guards
Front and rear badging
Red powdercoated caliper covers

Maybe future:
Mopar CAI
Muffler delete

The jury has been out on that for a long time. I know that I will probably hear a more throaty sound along with the exhaust mod as well but do a search and do some reading on it. Some guys say they can feel a slight difference others not so much.

Welcome to Challengertalk Bruce ;) First mention I have seen here of the SR Performance's Lowering Springs , so I can't make comparisons. But I'll say either, with 2" or more drop, will almost assuredly need more parts to get correct alignment (Adjustable control arms, Camber bolts/bushings)

The CAI debate rages on. I'll say this, get one for looks, sound, reusable filter and you won't be disappointed. Get one for increased power, and you may not find any joy ;)

thank you for the information. I just order the Eibach proline kit. Probably need an alignment for it to afterwards? you have the AirAid CAI, how is that working for you, any performance improvement or sound improvement?

You'll need alignment, my car with the Pros aligned correctly, just one setting was at the limit. But the shop said no problem, and no sign of uneven wear when I rotate my tires. I don't believe anyone has gotten correct alignment with the Sportline though.

The Airaid Cai, looks and the lifetime reusable filter. I already had the Solo exhaust when I put it on, so can't tell you what sound change it alone will get you. It did make the exhaust sound deeper with the Solos, that for me is 100%

I don't think there was any noticeable performance improvement

Any performance increase will be either small increase, big outlay, or big increase, bigger outlay. I have only done appearance. Did do a 5.9 0-60 early on, just to see what it would do. I can open the hood without shame, lol

For performance? No. I bought a V6 because it was all I needed. Can't deny if picking up 20HP was relatively cheap I'd likely do it, but easiest would be a tune, $1000+ tune, and have to run 93 octane. That and I have a Lifetime warranty, so no major mods like that for me anyway.
