    Loads of stuff mate..

    Are you going for the looks or the performance?

    If you are going for performance then nothing is going to be cheap.

    If you are going for looks, plenty of stuff available. If you want it to stand out from the croud......think outside the box, widen your scope and write down some ideas.

    Twin level rear spoiler, lower it, gt front hockey sticks or full gt splitter is standard upgrades.

    Not particually cheap, but slightly rarer mod would be the csl boot :http://www.body-kitz.com/contents/en-us/d226.html

    thanks where can you get the full gt front spiltter? is that the 1 piece version?
    also is it possible to get the bottom piece for the rear spoiler like the gt's have?
    not into the csl style boot i think it kind of makes out u wish it was a csl lol
