Default Sexifying my SSEi

Hey I'm new here and I'm really excited to make my Bonneville as sexy as possible.
Aside from the wheels and 10000K HID headlights, everything is stock.
Let me know what you guys think I should do to it, whether it be exterior or interior (new paint color, body kits, etc.)
I'm not really sure what to do or how to get started but I'd greatly appreciate input from you guys.

Here'* my ride:

I also wouldn't mind beefing up the engine power a bit, but not too extreme.

Many start off with clear corners..some move on to clearing parts of the tails.

Me.....it'* start off under the recycled beer can (aka the aluminum hood)

ZZperformance.com

Are a couple of vendors that come to mind with packages aimed at the new guy. Any questions just ask... we have tons of experience. (aka..I'm good at breaking stuff)

Like Bill Boost said, definitely go with the clear corners and tails.
Under the hood a Fender Well Intake (FWI) is a good upgrade.
Look around under this section for ideas and check here

Yeah I was actually going to clear the corners of the headlights this week.
And someone already talked to me about the Fenderwell Intake so I'll defiinately take a look at that.
I was going to get a carbon fiber dash trim and new sound system too.

What our boosted friend here is trying to say is "Llumar" tint.

So far, the Onyx and Llumar tints are the best we've seen used. However, make sure you know or have seen some of the installer'* work first. We've had a few on here that got rooked royally by less-than-good quality installation.

And check your state'* tint laws before doing it too. That way, no matter what you choose to go with, you will know where you stand w/r/t the law.
