Mods In Order of Importance?

Hey guys. Thanks for welcoming me and for all the tips for my new celica. Again, it's a 2004 A Trans GT, silver. Here's my question--If you had my car and will modify the exterior, what would you change/add in order of importance? What about the interior? I'm asking because again, I just got the car and now I'm on a budget and will have to change things very slowly. Right now I'm not interested in performance as it is already a step down from my honda civic manual trans. which was totaled frown
