Clear corners look nice on white.

before:
Amber Up Close
Amber Whole Car

after:
Clear Close Up

Or, if you dont have a spoiler, get one. Or Hood Vents/ scoops...functional/real ones! Lamborghini doors are expensive but Neons?

i have a dual outlet muffler so i guess ill look into some stainless tips. i have blue underbody neons with 12 functions and a remote (not installed yet) and what exactly do you mean paint the grill.? paint the honey comb part to match my cars color or paint the whole grill a different color.? my car i sgoing to be repainted white so i thought i should try and locate some black and grey door panels which are rare.. with some black leather seats and black floor carpet with blue neons inside the car.

I think it looks awesome. Further along, you can see that I put the mesh on both the grille area and the opening beneath.

Yep, the honeycomb. Pick a good complimentary color or body color.

If your going to have blue neons, maybe the grill being blue would be a nice compliment to them? Just my opinion. Thats why I went with a purple grill.

As for more appearance mods, tint the windows, and get some chrome wheels. I barely spent any money and my car looks 10x'* better than it did when I bought it.
