Question Suggestions?

I was just wondering if anyone could expand upon the thoughts I've had so far for modding my 'balt. I have an 07 LS silver sedan and I'm aware the thing lacks the sporty style of the coupe... but i'm still thinking there could be some things I could do to it to really give it my own feel. So here are the things I've been thinking (Keep in mind I'm pondering a black and silver look)

Debadge LS (it bugs me for whatever reason)

Paint bowtie black while leaving outer edge chrome

Redo Audio system (I already have a pair of 6x9's that never got installed into my old car)

Black rims + new Tires (When I have more $$$)

35% tint job

Get a spoiler

Black detailing on headlights.

If there's anything anyone can think of that isn't too expensive or major overkill that me and my buddy could do ourselves I'd appreciate it. + I wouldn't mind any thoughts on if this black + silver idea sounds good.

Yea thats pretty much the rundown of what everybody does. You could paint the interior trim i guess.

I was thinking that as well... My friend suggested some changing of the seat colors via various methods... I think that may be an idea. Black leather seats would make me smile. :D

I have a red sedan, the first thing I did was tinted the windows. Second I added some decals (bowties) to the quarter glass, and a decal across the front windsheild ( I got a sunstrip across the top to make the decal pop and it helps when the sun is over head. I wnet 15 in the back windows and 20 in the fornt, the sun strip was 15 % also. You can make the sedan look sporty, it all about taste.

Dan you need to fix your links...

That's pretty much it man, deffinately do something with the interior. You might consider some black vinal graphics or something because your body is plenty large enough and just a bowtie and rims won't bring the black accent out as much... But add some vinals perhaps and you couldn't get any more sporty... Decals are always nice...

Well you could tint your tail lights.. Or since you have the sedan, Maybe even think about some aftermarket tails.
