In general, what do most think should come first when doing some basic work to a stock VS berlina/Calais/executive as a first ride?

Rims and tyres,lowered springs,exhaust. Thats the first three id do. And you will notice a good set of rims/tyres in the handling.

Depends all on whether you want show or go, really :) A set of genuine 15*7 interceptors with good 225s will do you just fine for handling, and save a few bucks over alloys. Slightly less cop attention too, you'd figure. Then I'd whack on a good cat-back exhaust, and extractors if you've got the money. That's the best place to start for a few kilowatts. Lowering looks awesome on any wheels, but it starts to get expensive for bogans like me when you factor in new shocks and a panhard rod.

me and my mates believe first mods done to the car is the stereo,when i got the calais, as soon as i got home my 6x9's went in,didnt change the deck till it died because the stock calais one sounded pretty good and had 10 stacker, which then **** it self. After that i went tints, wheels, lowering, exhaust etc...
