Nothing else significantly done. Proud father of 4 kids still at home so I'm on a budget for upgrades. I replaced the front speakers with some competition kicker 6 1/2's. Rear speakers are next but that's an ordeal because the entire rear has to be dismantled to do it. Gonna do a single 10" sub on passenger side of trunk in the little corner behind tail lights. I use the car for work so the trunk has to be very usable for tools and my fold up ladder. I'm thankful for a fold down rear seat. 

A friend of mine has a cold air intake on his. He's gonna sell the car before he moves back to KC MO. He said he will remove it and bring it back with him. Not sure what other stuff I can affordably do. I love the G8 style vented hood and front spoiler. I'd like to find 1 for mine

Yikes, good luck with those kidos!

There is not much in way of performance (few bolt ons are still around) in these cars unless you are going custom (custom = $$$$). Pretty much letting the thing breathe though with a good exhaust and intake combo will give you some way of numbers though. Then a tune and maybe some suspension and other upgrades are still around will help you if you want to go that far.  Does your friend have a Crabs brand intake by chance? They were made by one of the owners of another site myself and some other members here used to frequent and always curious if they are still being passed around, as I have one.

Not sure of the intake he has. I'm not too worried about going crazy with mods for my car. I dont have the kinda cash it really takes to do that. Just wanna do simple affordable things. I've found a few bolt on changes like a bigger spoiler on the trunk lid, front ground effects from another model and year, and rear bumper skirt. I may do an exhaust upgrade too. A friend of mine owns a shop that does that and owed me an exhaust hookup but I've never had a decent vehicle worthy of a better exhaust.

Ah, gotcha. There’s a few well known companies too with intakes as well like K&N and Injen. 

Going the GXP route with the exterior aesthetics or aftermarket?
