Tinted plastic license plate covers.
Optima sealed red top battery.

Well what's the look you're going for and how much money did you want to spend?

best rule you can follow is don't be cheap.
If you're going to do it, do it right.

This x1000.

Don't fall for all the dumb wraps and stickers.. they look as cheap as they are.

Some musts IMO are Tom's Tail Lights, Shark Fin antenna, WeatherTech floor mats, clear side markers, chrome-amber or led turn signal bulbs, LED interior/license plate/reverse bulbs, EUDM armrest.

Coilovers and wheels. Drop and wheels. Springs and wheels. Just lower it and get wheels.


Biggest difference in cosmetic appearance.

Cosmetic is all subjective. Do the research and find what you like.

But those weathertech mats @woode suggested are freaking awesome.

Keep the rice on the dinner table.

Honestly, a set of rims and a good drop can really separate your car from the crowd more than anything.

Show us what you like...

Do you like subtle or flashy or dark and sinister. Maybe you like a cheery throwback look?

Post pictures and we could go from there.

I will echo those that said to go with quality. Don't cheap you because you can buy more, it will, I. The long run fit poorly, and fall apart easier. That said there are some things you can cheap out on because they break and are expected to be replaced every few years...like front lips.
