Re: Need some advice
Hey there, and welcome! Congrats on your new low mileage Tiburon, it looks nice already, I like the white rims and Tuscani badges. Does your friend have a Tiburon as well?
Between coilovers and springs, the choice is yours. The major difference is price and quality of course, but when properly doing springs it can cost nearly what a set of nice coilovers would. Most common options include cheaping out for Racelands (around $450), saving up for quality coilovers (around $800) or getting a nice set of springs and new struts to mount them on (springs ~$200, & struts around $80ea for a total around $550). It would be a good idea to put those springs on brand new struts, not your current ones, because the different spring rates will wear the struts down quicker (if the struts already have 40k you wont last long with them lowered). Really the choice is yours what you decide. Personally I'm going for springs and struts when the time is right for mine.
For exterior and interior mods, take a look through the member profiles here and other various threads where members have posted their interiors, etc. When I first joined here I was able to empty my wallet pretty quickly just by looking at what others have done.
Concerning the exhaust, are you sure your windows weren't down the first day or something like that? Seems real odd that such an open exhaust would become quieter. The only thing I can think of that would cause that is a clogged cat, and you would have performance issues, a strong smell and even a potential CEL if that were the case.
Anyways, welcome again, and good luck with your Tiburon!
