Ok, I've got about 200 bucks burning a hole in my pocket. I already have carbon fiber altezzas, piaa's all around, and an s2000 antenna. What should I get next?

thanks for the suggestion, but I would consider that more of a performance mod than appearance.

any other suggestions?

I know, I know, but its a good performance and apperance for the engine, and you did not make it clear that your goin for show rather than go.

Try a new Hood scoop or roof spoiler (is that better), and you can get those right here thumbsup

So far everyone seems to be saying CAI. The reason why I hesitate to do that is I JUST got the car and I don't want to void any part of the warranty.. plus, I'm not so concerned with the performance (at least right now) as I am the appearance. I might later.

Burrito sounds promising, though.. thumbsup

I did consider a carbon fiber Hood scoop.. how easy/difficult is it to replace the stock Hood scoop? I think I looked at it once briefly.. appeared to only be held on by a few screws; is that right?

Window tint would change the look of your car way more than a hoodscoop not to mention it save your interior from the sun and the inside of your car will be 20 degrees cooler in the summer (no I dont tint windows for a living LOL).

Or you could SAVE it! Get some wheels, lower your car. But if you can't do that, get the tint. If you get the scoop, you have to get it painted.

Some good points.

As for the rims, they'll be later on down the line. Suspension I don't plan to modify unless I've done everything else I want and have some money left over.

The tint is a definite possibility.

Scoop doesn't have to be painted in carbon fiber finish thumbsup

I was kind of thinking the same thing. I really like the invader Hood, but I don't have 500 + shipping right now..I'll probably get that after I save some funds.

dude, lower it before putting a hoodscoop on or anything like that, painting the scoop will cost more than 200 bucks if you get it done right.

Definitely get a tint! I got limo tint on my red Celi and it looks badass! Totally changed its appearance. Now it looks more sporty & aggressive./

If you get limo tint, it's REALLY HARD to see in (and not to mention, illegal, if you get it on the two front windows), and when you pass by, people wonder who's inside and they strain to get a glimpse. thumbsup

The heat retardation is a plus, too.
Eliminates glare from headlights at night, too.
