    you didnt say what car you have but im guessing its a mk4.colour coding the door handles and bumpstrips is straight forward enough and wont cost too much.might be a good idea to put a picture up so people can see whats already been done.

    If you don't want to change your grille to a badgeless 1 you could always paint the silver 'V' to black and still keep the vauxhall logo.
    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.

    I would not change it to the slatted badgeless one... looks crap imho. The cross hatch one looks better £39 from LMF although its not a 100% great copy of the Irmy one it will do.

    LED Sidelights 501 lux upto £5 ebay
    LED rear numberplate light (depending on WHAT model you have)
    Gear and handbrake gaitors £10 Ebay
    Aero flat wiper blades £10-21 Ebay
    Smaller aeriel? Be careful and dont get the cheapest of cheap as the signal is Sh1t!
    Panel Filter £35-40 or K&N
    Depending on what model and what colour lights you have, Black tinted headlights and NOT lexus rears!
    smoked or tinted indicators

    This is to name but a few...
    other options are
    spoiler
    front and rear bumper extensions
    and so on and so fourth.. Just do not stick fibreglass tat on you're car!!

    ITS THE LAW!

    Agree with Silver V about Lexus lights......if you love them, buy a freaking Lexus.
    Same applies to the R8 led strips too....

    I bought the cheapest small aerial, seen as I only listen to CDs the reception can be crap [although not even tested it once].
    I've paid and displayed...
