Need some opinions.

So for my Birthday on the 26 i made about $450. i was wondering what you guys think it should do to my Lude. any good ideas welcomed. it's all stock except for a full sound system, intake with K&N filter and cat back.

Things i'm not doing is:
Lowering-Too many crappy raods and i don't like the ride.
Boosting-Don't have enough money for that...or time.

I was thinking new clear turn signals in the bumper, Clear JDM fogs, and Full LED Lights all around. (Turn signals, reverse lights, and running lights.)

Re: Need some opinions.

Those are the basics and clean the car up real nice, I would pick up a set of the fog light kit as well, it looks great if you don't have it already.
Another item is 3m CF wrap, I've done all my interior in it!! It looks great and is pretty easy to install, just need a heat gun or lighter which I used for wrapping around edges. You can get a nice sized roll of ebay or amazon.

Re: Need some opinions.

Ooooo! I like the carbon fiber wrap. I might take that idea! Haha, I'd say you give yourself a full tune up! Timing belt, water pump, clean up the engine, sea foam! Oil change! New oil! Haha. Or you could get a body kit, but idk if that'll make your car too low for the roads around you.

Touch up paint where need be, then LED's and fog lights. A clean Lude is a happy Lude.

Yes major detail on the outside of the car. A nice buff and wax. Nothing looks better than a nice shiny paint job.

Re: Need some opinions.

I might have to get a new exhaust header. i was coming home today and i think it was rattling. i would put on a body kit but most don't fit too well that are cheap. As far as a tune up Timing belt job was done about 4k miles ago and i just cleaned the crap out of it yesterday. inside and out.

Re: Need some opinions.

Yeah i'm not too fond of the originial shift knob so i'd get a nice weighted one too. i think i'm going for fogs, turn signals, and lights then see how much i got left over.
