    Subtle mods

    Havnt got a lot of money for mods (wife and 3 year old daughter) to keep lol. So any ideas on cheap subtle mods. Things ive already done-- Cone filter, 17" alloys( already fitted to car when bought), powerflow back box, Interior switches and dash etc converted to blue led's, did have lexus lights fitted but removed and replaced with GSI ones, Angel lights fitted, crystal side indicators fitted, colour coded brake calipers, want to de-badge tailgate but getting car resprayed after xmas so gonna wait. Any ideas would be appreciated

    Thought of bodykits but quite like the original styling maybe thinking of changing the grill as typical clips snapped

    Important to point out that this is a mk3 - im sure people will assume its one of those shoddy mk4 things...

    I think it looks pretty well spot on as it is (going by the pics in your sig), maybe do something with the grill and a tint the windows. Looking good anyway.
