The batman must be an 08 option like the trunk pull down strap. Spoiler and flaps look good!

My '08 XR has dealer installed mud flaps. Not sure if I like the spoiler yet.

I couldn't agree more. Unicron; Dude, the grass has a nasty white fungus all over it. The trees are suffering from the same ailment. You better call your tree doctor right away.

Checking my tire pressures today and found they were all up a couple of psi.
I took an infra red temp reading and found that the tires on the sunny side of the car were at 145+ f. It was over 110 f inside the car and it was only 10am.

Just got my new XR today - nice detailing by dealer; riuned by crappy weather in CT.
I have the XR also in the same color.
Black Leather, Enhanced Convenience and Sunroof.
Was considering the spoiler - is that a Saturn part and can you tell the price of part and install?

First mod:
Saturday I go and switch out tires - going with Eagle F1s

What should be next?

Looks great! Saw some other options here: http://www.cardata.com/spoilers/saturn_spoilers.htm
It'd be nice to have a handle for opening and closing.

Hi all, thx for the feedback.

The splash guards can be bought at saturn for $74 but only black and textured. The spoiler was bought on eBay for only $120. I had both primed, painted and installed for only $300 by my best friend.

The splash guards even have undercoating to match the wheel well and the help keep the paint from chipping over time.

Next I am going to be ripping apart my dash and installing a Ipod interface and 80gig Ipod. I'll have 80 gigs of music hidding behind my dash that I can control with the stock radio. I'll never have a CD in my car again. I might even install a Infinity Basslinks subwoofer. Sounds good and is really small.

I'd also like to upgrade the engine with a supercharger but I guess I'll have to keep waiting for that.

Not a big fan of spoilers but it stills looks pretty classy and the splash guards are awesome with body matching paint. I have the stock black Saturn Guards.

What iPod interface did you end up going with?

go turbo - i don't see any room in the engine bay for an s/c w/o putting some sort of funky bubble in the hood.

rear mount turbo would probably be the least-invasive option.

I bought the factory mud flaps the day I bought the car, but they are still in the trunk 2,500 miles later. lol I need to make an appointment to get them put on soon... Is that wing from the factory or an after market one? If it were legal here I would get my windows tinted, but that's about the only modification I would make right now. I like the supercharger idea though.
