Hi. Welcome to the forum! I would paint the calipers to match the car for the most part, but its up to you. There's plenty of articles here on all you can do for go fast happy parts, exhaust, etc... But, if you have specific questions, just ask them in the forum sections they belong in, and you'll get plenty of answers. =) And, Pics??? Show that tint and them wheels off!

Welcome to the Forum!

Yes lower the car

Color Match the calipers

try the Classifies section of are forum if you want a SS highrise wing

Aftermarket exhaust [I recommend magnaflow]

My question - Is your car a manual?

welcome

my car is BFM too... currently, my calipers/drums are gunmetal... but so are my rims & some interior trim. I have 4 cans of BFM paint on the way... IF i have some left over... i MIGHT color match my calipers... but i kinda like the gumnetal look i got goin on... i dont want my car to look girly, but still a girl's car. if that makes sence. haha
eh either way, dont do red, that would look terrible against the BFM... pink/purple wouldnt be too bad... i wouldnt ever do it tho.......lol
