exhaust or Intake for a couple hundred...
at least a front bumper or any part of a body kit for a couple hundred, TRD Hood spoilers, an aftermarket rear spoiler, uhhh really really really cheap wheels.

get a Cold Air Intake for performance, and a front lip for looks.

I don't really like the look with just front bumper. For looks, go with maybe a hoodscoop and Hood spoilers (you could get different colors if you have a color scheme), or a spoiler (whatever your preference is on the looks). For performance, your best gain would be from probably headers (price depends on GT or GTS for a good header). An Intake would be cheaper, but not as much gains.

ya don't get just a front bumber... ull look like all the civic owners that like to thro on there unpainted front kit and then take off there hub caps... at least thats what they do here. i would agree that the Intake would be the best performance mod to do, and for looks id say not springs because 1-2" doesn't really do much and if ur planning on getting a kit eventually, i think ud like to know how low the kit gets you from the ground first, so id say get a wing, if you like aluminum spoilers

headers, Intake, springs, spoiler, or Hood spoilers and I would say that's it. Don't get only one piece of a body kit and put it on, that's just not right.

i guess i would have to say it would a little bit but not that much. by putting on the header ur increasing ur air flow thru ur pipes, so more air is going to have to travel out ur exhaust... but i guess ur prolly only going to notice a difference at higher rpm's... my 1 cent anyways. plz correct if wrong.

It will make it louder, but I don't think that it will be real dramatic. Go for it, it will sound tight. By the way, are you driving a GT or GTS?

I have a blitz front end... depends on your car's color. I can pull it off because my car's the carbon blue...the factorty side skirts and mud flaps are black. Looks ok... there's many a speed bump in my neighborhood, though. Only reason why I haven't finished my kit. The frontend is shot to sh"t and back because Georgia roads suck.
Personally, I want headers for my car. Anyone got a hookup? What brands are out there? TRD's are 700 bones. We can do better than that, right?!?! A dude on Ebay has some for 250, but I've never heard of the brand.

For a few hundred - definitely Intake and springs. (or even coilovers for about a hundred more, unless you need shocks, too)
