x2 on window tint...taillight tint, change some bulbs to led's, vinyl overlays on the amber part of the headlights....really, the car will look better completely stock than with any kind of cheap/tacky mod.

Werd, just make sure you read the how-to's on here and other sites, because there is a right and wrong way to do it.

Oh, are you offended that I painted my winter rims orange?

FYI, there was a poll voted on by GAGT.com members on what color to paint them, and orange won.
