Welcome! Love silver, by the way.

Meguiars Leather Conditioner is awesome at moisturizing the seats. Smells great too. For the emblem, you can paint, carbon fiber, or Plasti Dip. As far as cool things, there's a thread for mods that cost under $100. I'll try to find and link that.

Are you rocking an LS, LT, SS? As far as your cost, it depends how crazy you get. Minimum is doing your springs and your sway links. Most people do a full swap to FE5 at the same time as springs.

This thread should give you the rest of the info you're looking for. Using the search feature and browsing under the suspension forum will give you plenty of happy reading

IMO, style is one of the biggest advantages to having a car lower. It just looks right to me. Also, it adds advantages to cornering. With a lower center of gravity, the car is able to take turns quicker and with more control. One thing that is said often on this site is that you can make your car reliable, fast, or cheap but you have to pick two. It's all about the depth of the pockets.

Leather shift knob
Carbon fiber just about anything

Welcome

Lowering is so worth the money. Have you ever took a corner too fast and felt like you were going to role over? If you read that link above and follow that you will feel a huge difference... Its almost like driving a different car.

They make both kinds. Pre-made or a roll of vinyl. With the wrap you have more options though.

Also, the wrap is cheaper and is not difficult to do and still looks good.
