I have made a few changes over the years to fit my own taste.
I switched the exhaust to a Corsa pace car w/ (4) tips and added the X-pipe. Added a quick-shift kit and I changed and modified the springs size and length inside shifter to ease shift effort. Painted the brake caliphers red and changed the all rotors to drilled and coated & painted set with ceramic pads. I also swapped my intake tube with a carbon fiber set up from a 2001 and made some adjustments to make it work/fit and added a Donaldson Black Wing cold air filter system. All intake & exhaust changes really improved the horse power (est. 50 +) performance but did cut my great gas mileage a couple mpg. Fun does have it's price. I also popped in new type HI headlamps (low beam only) that work well. A couple of small details added were stainless steel door sills and a steering wheel decal which makes a much better look with out over stating. Most folks wouldn't know it's not factory. I also swapped the original wheels to a set of 2001 OEM High Polished Wheels and kept the Goodyear Eagles F1 GS tires. I still may make a few adjustments down the road, but for now I'm enjoying the ride.
