2004 Canary Yellow Mica sedan

My dad bought her when it first came out, and has had it ever since. Now that I'm in college, he passed her on to me and went out to get a new car. I've not really done anything yet, aside from replace the wipers and get a cig. lighter plug for my phone. I'll add a rough list of things I want to do, but I'm open to suggestions on the colors, brands, etc. I'm pretty new both to this forum and the world of car mods, so I'd love some feedback. I'll put up more pics after she gets a bath, but it's supposed to rain tonight so she's looking pretty rough right now, hence the lack of pics...

Performance:
- Corksport SRI
- Corksport Power Series exhaust
- 1.5" Eibach Pro
- Koni yellow struts
- Replace high flow air filter

Interior:
- Eonon GM5151
- LED lighting kit
- Redlinegoods auto shift boot (black w/ yellow stitch)
- Redlinegoods e-brake boot (black w/ yellow stitch)
- Steel scuff plates
- HVAC knobs
- vinyl wrap steering wheel logo black
- PlastiDip / paint:
- AC vent bezels yellow
- HVAC knob bezels yellow
- Glove box latch black
- Door handles black
- Speaker bezels yellow

Exterior:
- HID kit
- LED reverse lights
- LED rear reflectors
- Door bumpers delete
- "3" badge delete
- Replace rear "M" with the evil M
- JBR mudflaps
- 28% tint all 'round
- OEM spoiler
- Front plate relocate
- PlastiDip / paint:
- Wheels (black, navy, or white)
- Emblems black
- Brakes yellow

Thanks! There are a lot of scuffs and little things up close, but I'm pleased with the overall condition given it's got 125K miles

Well, it's not tastefully modded yet lol, but soon hopefully! I'll probably get visuals out of the way first since they're cheaper. Gives me more time to do research on installs so I can do them myself & not pay people for it

Exactly my thinking. If I'm gonna start somewhere, it'll be with things related to MPG given my long(ish) commute to and from class each day. Maybe exhaust?

Ordered the HVAC knobs yesterday. Gonna paint them when they come in before putting them on. Dad's still having a hard time letting it go and is weary of my doing things to the car. He'll just have to get over it though
