Glad to see you are keeping the car. I always loved your sedan, not to many clean ones around. Tvs upgrade?

Possibly down the road... At this point I'm looking at suspension work, possibly some aero, and maybe pulleying down. Interior will probably get stripped as well.

What are your suspension plans?

Still trying to figure that out... Probably irs and a more performance oriented set of coilovers, nbody alum control arms.

I'm toying with another irs option that if it fits would retain the 5x100 bolt pattern and have more aftermarket support for hard parts (trailing arms, lateral links, brake options, etc) but I need to get under the car and take some measurements.

You'll be disappointed then... I'm keeping the 00+ headlights. I love the way they look with the IF front.

love the progress. that black/gray IF bumper spent some time in my garage. it's been all over the state of PA. I bought it from Mastin, Mastin bought it back, he sold it to Ecoswapped I believe, and now you have it. Have fun with it. Can't wait to see the finished product

I love when parts float around the community like that lol. Most of my stuff will have similar stories.

Sweet mother of Oden, that 00+ Headlights with that IF front looks gorgeous. Like a giant happy face just waiting to gasp in some delicious air. Why have I not seen that tastey image before.
Can't wait for more updates!

So you're telling me my new bumper is a whore lol

I plan to mod the bumper beam to get the s3 up into the opening. I'd like to pickup an evo hood as well but I'm not sure if funds will allow it.

Ironically Mastin bought that bumper from me, when I picked up the Wings West Evo hood from Phil. I originally bought the bumper from Chris Laverty, LOL!!

Glad to see you're keeping it and improving upon an already sweet car. I really fought with buying that when it was clear I was going to need to replace my DD, but it would have been a DD and not what it has been. You were meant to keep it!

That IF is going to look great on there.

Maybe.... the Neon doesn't have a removable center suspension supporting structure. The control arm links bolt directly to the rear unibody. Maybe he is doing a Neon/N body hybrid. I was looking into that a couple of years ago before I got my rear disc brackets.
