Default Any recommended modifications for a 94 SE??

Hey everyone,

I own a green 94 SE.
17 inch Aluminum Wheels.

I would just like to know if anyone could recommend some modifications i can make appearance wise. Although, i dont want anything punkish, I wanna keep the classic look.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Oh and if possible, please list brands of any products you recommend.

Thanks all!

it still couldnt hurt to get one...the cars that are recommended to get them are the ones that have the L36 engine which has a plastic upper intake thats prone to cracking..so the lower temps help keep it from doing so...but you have a Series 1 L27 engine which has a nice metal upper intake so you dont have to worry about it.....lucky bastid

How about tinting your tail lights and clearing your corner lenses?

only L27'* in early 92 had metal. Our plastic is designed better though.

Exhaust will help with performance sound and looks. Tinting the tail lights is awesome, but i've never seen it on a green car.

I agree with the above chrome rim suggestion (see below siggy picture ). Also, replacing the headlight and fog bulbs are a little thing that is kinda fun for the driver. People also clear corners, tint tails (as previously mentioned), paint grills and add "eyebrows" on headlights for little cosmetic projects.
