Hi...You are going to get plenty of ideas by asking that question on this forum....suggest what most people would want to know is what sort of BA?

Cheers

Go for the optional 18inch BA XR wheels if you are looking to spend around 3 grand, and you will get change back from that for air induction and few other things.
They are the best looking wheels u can get on a BA, ive seen them on an XT and they really set the car off with a good lowering job.
