What are you buying with tax returns for your car?

What are y'all buying for your car with tax return money?

For me I'm thinking some 315 Mickey Thompson ET Streets and some cheap tires up front. Lol.

This year it's the other way. Taxes are taking a big chunk out of my car fund.

Hot rod cams. Lope sounds good to me and it gives a mild gain which is all I'm after

Haha. If there is one thing that will catch everybody's attention it's a cammed car always.

Oh dude I still need to make a vid for you. FRPP cams + MPT tune sounds f*ckin great, they really know how to make those cams sound good. I actually think I found you on Instagram, I'll probably put the vid on there and give you a follow

Sounds good my man I am pretty excited to get some lope. Haven't really heard any modern cammed cars where I live.

I've heard Hot Rod cams + LTs + O/R X + Magnapacks

It shook my chest when I was standing behind it.

My whole rear bumper resonates at idle. Sounds like its about to blow up every lope. As soon as I touch the pedal everything shakes, sounds like I got 4 12" subs in the back haha, license plate goes nuts. Gotta be the O/R pipe and resonators. I've heard chambered mufflers resonate bad too though.

Depending on what I get back I was looking at the following:

Gt500 spoiler
Roush lip spoiler
Steeda one piece driveshaft
Mgw race spec shifter

I'll most likely do the 2 spoilers first. Or just the shifter.

I didn't buy anything for the car but did buy myself a new Glock Gen 4 G19. I did buy different rims and tires for the car before I got my taxes back if that counts.

I don't use tax return money, wife keeps a thumb on it. Mods get purchased from VA money and skimming a little off my paycheck every couple weeks, heh.

That's too broad and too many factors, like age, driving record, married or not, area you live in, and insurance company you go with. Call your insurance rep and ask.

Obviously it's going to be more because the car is new
Typically insurance is pretty high on a brand new car, but progressively drops over time as the car depreciates.

Another concern is being forced to sale my current mustang, although it may be foolish to keep two vehicles my mustang GT may not be worth much. As if now the 2015' mustang in my opinion is the best looking. I also looked into the 2014 GT's 5.0.... I need to take in consideration, insurance , gas, and so on.
