If you had $4000 to spend on your car, but could only spend on "Performance" parts/work or "Bling" or Visual items which would you spend it on ??

4K huh?... wheels and tires.... that's my next move at this point. (Got my track wheels from a member out in SoCal so I'm ready to rock on that front).. just want some Nurburgring wheels for my street tires.. I guess with some really nice new sneakers that would take about 2800-3000.. I got a grand left!! ... More Carbon Fiber please!!... Front spoiler and some side skirts!!
What category would Caravaggio Daytona seats come under? 'Cause the more I think about it I've probably spent more on performance type mods than bling. Or maybe there needs to be a hybrid category too? It just so happens that some of that performance is also pretty blingy. Like a carbon fiber splitter, bling or performance? EE pedal set, bling or performance? Michelin super sports are performance but a new steering wheel is bling, I guess, but, I sure like the way it feels a ton more than the OEM one. Now I'm confused. I think when I read performance I was strictly thinking engine modifications but there are more ways to improve performance than just bhp.

It's all good but there's no question about for me.....improving the car's performance does more to enhance my driving experience than the ornamental stuff.
