Wheels should be at the top of your list IMO.

Re: What else should i do ?

Paint or plasti-dip (your choice) your wheels black and add headlamp and tail lamp covers in tinted black

That car is in desperate need of some window tint. And wheels. If that's too pricey for now, just blackout your current ones like Gtz said.

Re: What else should i do ?

Up here in canada black wheels always confuse me. Alot of folks here run winter tires with black steel wheels, so when I see a "modded" car with black wheels I at first glance think they are running their winter tires lol

Tint is for sure a good thing. All the non car people at my work noticed the tint and not my new spoiler (installed same day)

I'm still on the fence about black wheels. Sometimes they look like hubcaps have fallen off but if the rest of the car is sharply done, it can look good. In this case I think they might be a better alternative to the plain OEM entry wheel.

Re: What else should i do ?

Wow there is so much... I started with intake/tune. But i already got my stripes in the mail. Love the red convertible but it is such a barbie car you definitely need to muscle it up a bit to make it look more aggressive. Kill the pony on the grill, either get those Am.com Halo lights or def darken the headlights (don't forget to darken your side markers), then like everyone else said: wheels + lower. I also am getting the painted mirrors and a chin grill that i'm going to paint to match.

You are supposed to take them off at night. The fog lights are brighter if you leave them on. Most of the time I dont though....
