Default Came back to the CT

Haven't been on for a few months as once the CT we had was totaled, Here, sry pics are gone, we bought a MB GLK350. Wife hated the gas mileage on it and how it shifted and we were able to sell it a couple weeks ago.

So was looking for a couple vehicles to include the CT, the Buick Encore, Fiat 500L, Nissan Rogue and a Mini Countryman. Test drove the Mini and hated it, it sucks at shifting and the interior is plain. Found a 2011 CT at a Lexus dealer in North Miami that had ~29,500 on it and Nav. Was able to talk the dealer down to $23,500 out the door, tagged in AZ and only was $850 to have it shipped to AZ.

Its not certified but I could still add that at my local dealer. I tried to get my local Lexus dealer to come down on their price as they had a 2011 with 18K on it, just the base model though, nothing extra but they were asking $26k and would only come down to $25,200 even after telling them about the one in Miami. So they lost out on a sale.

Wifes happy to be back in the CT, loves the smooth drive and the gas mileage. Not exactly the color she wanted, metallic brown, but still likes it. Now to start reading up on what mods can be done. Need to add a small amp and sub for her. The last CT was a lease so we can do what we want to this one.

What the standard mods that most do? Coils? Wraps? Intake? Doesn't the intake even help with these?

Check my sig for some mod ideas

Only thing the intake does is add a nice sound in the cabin when accelerating... (takes care of that dying prius sound)

So looking at coils, new feet and shoes, sway bar and possibly an aero kit in the future. What is the brand of coils to go with? She wants that sport feel.
