Next mods

Sup guys, just curious as to what mods you think i should do next.
So far I have -
Carbon fiber spoiler
Carbon fiber Lip
Carbon fiber side skirts
Upgraded Paddle shifters
Red start button

What would you guys do next? Im thinking of getting carbon fiber mirror caps, or maybe lowering it, or down pipes. I don't wanna get a diffuser yet because i plan on converting my exhausts to a dual tip exhaust soon.

A larger intercooler. It'll set you up down the road for anything you decide to throw at it.

Sounds like he is more interested in cosmetic mods. If power upgrades are on the table, get a tune

Thanks brotha appreciate it, and not a specific shop. I go to my cousins friends house and he does most of the work. You can look up some videos on youtube my cousins channel is LifewithKg.

Nice & clean...well done!!

- paint match the side markers (get rid of the orange)
- lower on springs
- mirror caps
- carbon & white wheel caps (the original blue & white...look out of place on the black rims)
- carbon & white hood & trunk emblems
- sequential turn signals on the side mirrors

But at the end of the day, you do as you see fit!!

I watch LifeofKg vids (both his whips are also super clean) ......sheeeeessssh!!

((RoundofApplause))....you're on the right, track with the build

Yeah, my build is coming along as well!!
Note: the springs have settled (after the pic was taken), so it's not a monster truck anymore with the wheel gap...hahahha

I would get the tail lights vinyl wrapped with smoke or get new led sequential black line tail lights.

....clean & simple is the goal

Sidenote: vinyl wrap (smoked out) overlay is inexpensive & quick to do, but if you do the taillights...also do the rear reflector markers (near the diffuser), so it's uniformed!!

Vinyl is very cheap to buy, maybe $30.00 and satisfying to DIY. Not hard either. I did it before I went with the smoked/blacklist sequential led tail lights (Vland) from ebay for about $300.00. like the other poster said do the reflectors in the rear bumper as well.
