i was wondering one thing if there is body kits
I have thought of decladding both of my Bonnevilles to make them smoother and sleeker (no, I'm not going to do it on either). I have seen body kits on them, but I think they are custom. There really aren't alot of exterior mods pre-packaged. (If you have the tools and know-how, you could really get creative). The lights and rims are relatively easy and cheap ways to start.

there you go. get yourself some nice rims to set it off and you will like it alot better
we have members with 18, 20 and 22'*
but I wouldn't go any larger than 18'*

FYI our tire size is 5 x 115mm

Simple, inexpensive ways to start:

1.) Clear the headlights

2.) Clear the tail lights

3.) Tint the windows

4.) Chrome the rims

5.) (Personal preference) tint the headlights or tail lights.

6.) Debadge decals/logos/insignias/emblems

I wouldn't personally buy a body kit for my car, but then again I have an 01 SSEi so I really don't need one. You can put in racing seats if you want. I'm sure it will take off the eight thousand pounds our seats weight :-p but you're going to sacrifice the comfortability of them. I wouldn't put them in until you make some nice performance mods because you're going to be driving around in hard seats with not much performance increase.

You'll get the unique look... just give it time.

There are a couple folks here that have put on hood scoops or vents. Most of these were not stick-on varieties, but rather taken from other vehicles and melded to fit the Bonne hood for a new look.

In some cases, at least two that I know of here, vents were put in not only for looks, but to help cool of some pretty good performance modded engines.

I think there was also a memer who used scoops from a trans am.

These aren't everybody'* choice, but they are options to consider for changing the look.

Do a search or two and see.

Also, to add to what some others have mentioned, take a look up top in TECHINFO and read up on the first performance mods we recommend. Many can be done for little cost and just some time and effort on your part.

FWIW my opinion is keep the car. Learn everything you can about the car. From doing your own brakes, chaning oil, fixing electrical problems swapping an engine even. You will learn on a car you don't have alot of money into and if later you decide you want something else you will have some knowledge to not get ripped off or to buy somebody elses junk.
The bonne can be quite the "sleeper" with proper modification, actually any car can. The insurance is cheaper on a bonne than a civic. Learn, Learn some more, save some money drop in an l67 (supercharged) and spank all the punks with daddy'* money who bought them a new civic....... All in "GRANDPA'* CAR"
