it depends what you're into...performance, audio, show?
if it were me i'd drop money into a good suspension setup, full exhaust, intake, ecu, tires.

if you've done all the performance stuff i've listed.
- go for turbo & engine management
- go for seats and a roll cage
- a good a/v setup

If this "sponsership" was from who has been giving out "sponsherships" lately, you havent gotten a damn thing.

View my tuning guide which is a sticky on the QR engine section for what you can do performance wise.

I'm mainly looking for engine feedback, the audio is already taken care of with a rockford fosgate system that i have installed, and i already know what exterior modifications i'll be making(starting of with ballistix aero kit)

that's not real.

you might want to research that company some.

essentially what you end up doing is paying $80 to them (sponsorships NEVER require you to pay) so that you can "buy" 10,000 worth of parts from them at supposedly discounted prices (which are actually msrp or higher than you'll find if you search the net some)

you get nothing free from it, certainly not $10,000.

Sponsorships are given to cars that have already had tons invested in them or offer immediate mass viewing such as race cars or high dollar show cars.

no company is going to sponsor an otherwise stock car or one with some mildly upgraded audio or bolt ons.

basically, nothing is free.

I have sponsors because I've already dumped thousands of dollars into my car, and it's in a magazine.......that's about the only reason. That and it's like one of the few, if not only currently turbo 1.8L Sentras in the US right now.

I just checked the company. You got ripped out of 80 bucks bro. Sorry. They give you "discounts" that are not discounted at all.

What I am telling you is fact. This has been around longer than you've owned your car. I've seen plenty of people fall into this trap.

Ask anyone, ANYONE who is really sponsored by a company. It's not some kid with a stock sentra, it's a racecar driver, show car owner, or someone who writes for a magazine.

If you fail to believe what more experienced people tell you, you're going to lose a lot.

BTW, we're only telling you to protect you.........so if you don't want to listen to us....so be it.

And no, you haven't researched the company.

Yea, I have heard first hand of rip offs...your "discounted" price on an SAFC2 is like 400 dollars for example. The Spec V is a great car but why would anyone sponser one that is stock (especially considering how many of them have been produced)?
