Default 1990 LE Spiff Up Time

So I have come to the conclusion that my 1990 LE Bonneville is just not cutting it anymore, looks wise that is. Actually, it does just fine but I am thinking of dressing its straight stock appearance up a bit. I have had it for a little over a couple years and it is quite amazing condition considering its age. I bought it at around 78k and have 89k on it now....yeah, it was a grandma special prior to my owning it, never really used much.

Anyway, I am thinking of adding new lights (bulbs) or a whole assembly if I can find a spotlight lamp type (like one would find on a BMW or the like) in the front and maybe something special in the back. I am also thinking of buying a new deck since the stocker has no cd player. I have the lower end deck that was offered with the car. While it is an LE, is does have some nice wheels and also power windows, locks, and seat. Always wondered why they did not just buy the SE in the first place for the original car since this one has many things that I believe were optional on the LE. I also need to round up a couple more wheel caps (the black plastic ones that go in the center of the wheel) and five-six lug not covers. Someone nicely took a few of mine.

Anyone have any tips of suggestions for what to do with the car? I am open to any performance modifications as well. Perhaps I will post some pics as well.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

For the stereo upgrade, I can tell you that i'm really happy with my Pioneer (see my signature for the exact model), but I suppose it all depends on how much you want to spend.

Looks-wise, I've never seen any changes or accessories on these cars that actually look good, aside from maybe new wheels an inch bigger than stock. It'* all a matter of opinion though. I like them stock.
