Default My bonne is gonna be mainly show.

Alrighty, since buying new fog'*, headlights, and tinted tails for my car, I've decided to go all out on the "show" aspect of my car.

Here are my plans, and any other ideas would be great.

Custom FWI, painted to match the color of my car.
Custom floor mats. Basically the same as I already have, just with the SSEi stitching be the paint color of the car so they "pop".
Custom seat covers/custom seats. I want to have the insert section and the stitching of my seats be the same color as my car.
Paint a lot of the usual "accent" areas of the interior. Door handle areas, vent trim, hazard tim...all that.
Polish my */C, polished strut tower bar, and other things under hood either painted/polished.
20 inch wheels
New mufflers with new tips.
LED conversion all around.

Ok guys, that'* all I can think of. Y'all got any other ideas?

Get the seats reupholstered for sure. Do not use seat covers.

I'm also thinking maybe an engine cover? The L36 one looks nice once painted. Or you could get one from an L32. I think the L67 one just looks a little "old".

I know I don't like my engine cover. I also love what the engine looks like all polished and painted. Show me an L36 or L32 cover and I "might" change my mind.

How much extra? I think these might cost as much as some mass made customs headlights LOL.

L32 engine cover (on an L32 obviously)


The best example of an L36 one would be YoungGunLs1'* painted cover
