    Cruise control
    Lowering
    & some winodow tints get my vote.
    Or alternatively keep the money and save up some more for wheels.

    would go down the changing the looks side rather than modding the engine for obvious reasons. So save that bit more and get some decent rims and lowering springs. Or buy some wheels second hand like i did mint condition and even with brand new springs and decent tyres would still hav had change from your budget.

    Wheels for sure, your car has the same wheels as my 2004 club had, though the colour is the same as my current car'
