what would you buy for 300$?

Hey so after getting an off road H pipe and gt500's I have some money left over. A fellow here on ME also traded me his intake and tuner. So what should I get next? I was thinking three options.
1) decklid panel and billet grille.
2) control arms and lowering springs
3) save more for the aiback pro kit.
Any others suggestions welcome. Also to add I will be doing rims and tire in the next month so what's the best combo of lightest (still strong) and best looking rims?
Thanks for the help.

Springs by themselves are fine if you don't intend to track the car half seriously.

Road trip to Vegas.

Drop whatever is left of your $300 after gas /snacks on Black.

I just doubled your available spending... Or ruined your day. Let it ride....

Thanks for the help.
If you got someone else's tuner you will need to buy tune for life package for $150. You can not load his tunes in your car. So I would buy the tunes for life and a MMD gas cap with the $300.

Adjustable LCAs aren't necessary but an adjustable UCA would be a good idea.

I have non-adjustable LCA and they are perfectly parallel to the ground after getting the relocation bracket.

If you decide to lower you'll need an adj. panhard bar. It's a must. Or you'll end up like this guy:
