What mods do you currently have?
that would be a good start. after we know that, we can help you decide what to do next.

for apperance, u can always get tints, springs, neon or led kit... idk what else, for 150 bucks.

if u had more, id suggest rims, body/lip kit.

so all u have is a deck, okay. 150 isnt enough to add to the rest of your system... so id suggest tints, for your next mod, since you want it to be a visual mod.

well with a hundred and Fifty dollars you can get a Ebay cold air intake, (like 40 dollars shipped) and then take the leftover hundred and go get a new muffler and have it welded in place. If you shop around or have access to a welder you can DIY. Your car will feel better and you'll notice a difference in power. That's what I would do to get a start.

Oh and as much as Pete is a douche he has come along way in the short while he has been here and his car is coming along nicely.

What year is it? Depending on that and whether it is a sedan or hatch there are great deals from ItaliaTib. If you have an XD1 which is 2001-2003 you could get a lip spoiler for $25 shipped, and if you have an XD2 2004-2006 he has one front lip left for $100.

Keep i mind with that spoiler, though, that it will probably need to be bondo'd onto the trunk. I look into it a while ago, but painting alone was gonna run at least $100.

I say tint or lowering springs. I know the springs are really suspension but they make your car look better so....

tint is money well spent, I think tint would be the best mod because at your age the tint can shield you from strangers when your getting busy in the front or/and back seats and the front windshield will be the only foggy glass
