Default Help!

Hey everyone, first time poster. I'm 16 years old and just got a '96 bonneville SE. It'* white with tan leather interior and 16 inch alloy wheels. I was wondering what i could do to spice it up a little bit for cheap. I was thinking something with the headlights or fog lights maybe. Any help would be appreciated.

well, you could go out and purchase some Silverstar headlights, that would get you a little different look tot he car, i guess when you spice it up are you talking looks or performance?

Email [email protected] I got blue high beams, low beams, and foglights for $60. Plus Xenon bulbs have a lifetime waranty and you can get green, blue, red, & purple. His site is Hotlightimports.com Check out my ride and let me know what you think, I have only spent about $900 on everything in about two years! Colored wire lume ,heat paint, and interior paint are very cheap and can make a big differance!

97, read this:

Spice it up? SS headlights are a great way to start. Clear your corners, replace your factory foglights, and tint your tails. If you have the cash, tint the windows too.

SilverStar headlight bulbs are a great start towards freshening your Bonnie'* looks!
They will give you a nice bright white light that is far better for visibility than the blue-tinted HID-look lights, plus there'* the fact that everybody'* DONE the blue-light thing!
Clear the amber lenses out of your corners on the front next.
I've got a '95 SSEi, and I'm going to pull the tinted pieces out of the tails soon, I'm not sure if the '96s can be done the same way but it'* worth a look.
If you have the later tails that have that piece that runs across the bottom of the decklid, you could take a stab at lighting the "PONTIAC" script there.

On the interior, several BC members have tinted their interior lights to match the red of the instrument panel.
Other than that, just try to think of original touches!

PS: If you want to see SilverStars just look at my sig!

Oh, BTW, don't use turn signals of any color other than amber, depending on the state you're in, you could get seriously BUSTED!

Sorry, I meant don't use a bulb or tint or anything that makes the turn signal/running light emit a color other than amber on the front, or amber/red on the rear.
Most especially DO NOT USE BLUE, flashing blue lights attract MUCH attantion that YOU DO NOT WANT!!!!!
