What to do next...

So I've got a few options for my next mod... what do you guys think?

ATC - probably most expensive, would also install auto headlights too (probably around $200 to get it all done, plus a lot of time to install)
Special Speedo - I have a regular 300M speedo in there now, and I've only gone faster than 120 maybe 3 times the whole time I've had the car
6 Disc Changer - would probably be the cheapest since I would try to sell my 4 CD changer
Black diamond headlights - my headlights now aren't in too bad of shape. I just sanded them and polished them last week and they look much better than before, but definitely not new quality


Or maybe any other mods that I should do? Let me know guys!

I picked ATC. Out of all the mods I've done it is definitely my favorite. I like my special cluster, but wouldn't have traded the ATC for it. For my selfish personal reasons, I'd really like to see you get the black diamonds. I want a set but don't know how they'd look with red. You can throw them on and send me a pic! lol

Well if I get the black diamonds, I am going to get a full front end cover, so I'm thinking the black of that might go with the black headlights too. I need the cover because I've got a lot of baked on bugs and rock chips, and I'm tired of the rest of my car looking amazing and the front looking like garbage, so it's either get this or repaint.

ATC sounds so sweet though. I just got my RB1 and keep thinking about how nice the dash would look with RB1, 6 disc changer, and the ATC.

If you do any amount of night driving then a HID kit would be at the top of the list in my humble opinion. 4300k OEM type will light everything up even with the current headlight housings you have now. After having my Denso HIDs in for over a year and a half, I won't go back. Going to do it to my 2000 R/T also once I dig all the parts out of storage.

True... HID's do sound nice. What do you think about that kit on ebay, it comes with the diamond headlights and the 8000K HID's. I wouldn't want 8000K though. Would it be better/cheaper to buy the diamond headlights and then get a HID kit separate?

Well I just bought the 6CD changer off of Ross, and I'm taking the special speedo out of the equation... that is $150 that I could spend on something else much more useful.

If I remember on that Ebay HID/Headlight combo..someone emailed the seller and they indicated they wouldn't substitute a lower Kelvin kit than 8000k. It's probably a cheap kit that'll die in 6-8 months anyway. If you're into the "rice" look then go with something above 4300k. If you want the best visibility at night..go with 4300k. I think the Denso kits with bulbs were around $230 when I last checked several months ago.

Yeah, I'd want the 4300K.... I'm pretty sure I'm going to be getting the headlights, and I'll probably just stick with silverstars for now. They get the job done.

I can wait for a little bit for the ATC.

Hahaha, well the 6 CD changer is on the way, and I am probably going to end up getting headlights off ebay today or tomorrow, so all that is left is ATC and I'll probably get that done come spring/summer.
