suggestions for a noob

hey guys i got my 1996 prelude vtec a month ago and i need some suggestions as to what mods i should do.

It is completely stock right now, except for the forbidden ss and a greddy counterweight knob.

I dont really have time for any performance mods, as i use this car everyday and i am just a 16 year old who doesnt have whole lot of money.

so pretty much what can i do to make it look badass?

anything helps.

and pictures are attached.

thanks

Re: suggestions for a noob

haha thanks all great suggestions

im really doin this so that my car is unique, clean, and good looking. the girls at my school only really care about "cute" cars. like the ones their parents buy them, and then they hit a pole in a drive thru at mickey ds. (seriously, this girl got a brand new rav4, and hit 4 things within the first week, including the drive thru pole)

o and any suggestion on some rims? (please keep price in mind)

since you are going for looks not performance i'd go ebay rims all the way. you can get em real cheap.

i like these for the price:

Re: suggestions for a noob

Dropping it with lowering springs and some good shocks will make your car look 10 times better. That's probably one of the best mods you can do for very cheap (maybe less than 500) but its all worth it.

Your car looks really clean, only thing I'd do is put some new rims on there and call it a day

Re: suggestions for a noob

Along with everything that has been said, get an intake for added noise effect. Some chicks who ARE into performance might like the effects and sound of VTEC.
