I think it could definitely benefit from lowering springs and proper wire management. It looks like the wires for the undercar lighting just run right across the dash and through the door openings!?! Is that the case, or is that wire for something else? Either way, I'd suggest you take the time to run that wire safely.

i agree, i have been trying to find a good suspention kit, and i have managed the wiring quite a bit better since then. But yes, the underglow lighting comes in through the door opening on the passenger side, idk where else to bring it through. =/

I'm not sure if there are any companies that make a suspension kit, or just lowering springs, for the Contour/Mystique. It's not a very common car to mod.

As for the wire routing, I'd suggest going through the firewall in to the engine compartment, then down to the lighting. There is probably space in a grommet or two near the steering shaft.

i have realized this recently. lol. but i believe that the car least likely to me modded is the most likely to blow everyone away at a show. and as for the wiring i think imma work on that.
