I hear front strut bars completely change the handling for the better. I haven't tried it yet myself. Quality tires help too. I'm running Michelin Pilots and they grip the road very well.

I have heard that as well. Before the crash we had a how-to on how to make your own strut brace. Any way of getting that back up MinkelR?

I might have it on my old laptop. I can check later but no promises

I would say wheels/tires, torsion bars up front, lowering springs in the rear, change out suspension bushings for the energy suspension stuff.

Additional rear sway bar is a great thing to do, changes the turn in and overall feel of the car without any negatives on ride comfort.

Are you trying to get your car to worth more money or are you just looking for driver upgrades? Because leaving the car stock and restoring it will be your best bet.
