Just like the title says! What would you like to see come out for this zippy little buggy?

I will start off with my list...
1.) Upgraded suspension. It could be height adjustable. I would like to keep the ride height the same as stock. Nice ground clearance with the suspension travel of a Rally vehicle.
2.) The usual ECU Reflash for some added horse power when in sport mode. So that means changing the OEM maps like Fuel, Spark timing as well as valve timing and boost.
3.) Intake, exhaust and intercooler. For obvious reasons of breathability, This would help in fuel economy by allowing the engine to breath better, waste better, and a cooler air charge means more power per revolution.
4.) Probably the most popular for this vehicle will be the "Looks category". Aero kits, Spoilers, Rims, Blah Blah Blah.

Custom applications for this vehicle that I plan on doing myself are as follows.
1.) Retro some Bi-Xenon's in the Headlights and 3000K Hid kit into the Fog light housing, and changing the wiring around so that I can have my High beams on along with my Fog lights. This aids in long distance travel where there is a divided highway. I do alot of traveling ob the HWY's at night.
2.) Upgrade the Stereo with some JL Audio speakers that will fit into the Factory locations along with a JL 8W7 Subwoofer with a custom low profile mount that still allows for cargo room.
3.) :p Can't think of much more without seeing the Vehicle.


In closing I really think it would be nice to have A/M companies like HKS, Stillen, Brian Crower, etc. to come along and jump on the Sport Cross band wagon and help pioneer this segment to the top!!!

none at all. I prefer to mod my body--I know a lot about that, but not about cars.

First for me the looks
Direct mods:
18" rims with a lower offset
Black wheel lugs
LED light running as drl's
4300 k bi-xenon headlights
LED licenceplate lights
Replace the orange repeaters in the front. By none orange
Maybe some audio upgrades


Performance i really want a blowoff valve and a fmic. But thinking about factory waranty I'll prob wat with those. Course after a whole the ecu remapping.

The only problem with a BOV is that it releases the air charge to the atmosphere. Being such a small turbocharger you will notice more of a Turbo Lag in between shifts. That being said if you have an CVT you will not notice it as much as it doesnt really shift. It will also depend on how much boost it runs stock. If I up my boost by 25% over stock I would like to have a BOV just for the relief of the extra pressure should I suddenly take my foot off the gas pedel.

good to know, for me it actually only for the sound, really don't have a clue hoe much trubolag it will have.
But I'll problably wait till it has past the factory waranty

new engine, new problems, you never know

Most BOVs have an attachment to allow them to recurcilate into the system. Either way a BOV will help prolong the life of your tubro.

The BOV is primarily to stop the pressurized air going back into the turbo and causing the intake wheel to spin the other way. Which is very bad for a turbo. You wont notice any "additional" turbo lag from a BOV. You'll basically experience the same turbo lag with or without the BOV. Best way to keep boost is by left foot braking which will keep your turbos spooled even when you have to slow down.

(lafs) probably not appropriate for here!

I'm such a tease.

Also, I have NO idea what any of these things in this thread are. Another learning experience for me!
