it depends on you really

rims helps the appearance more then anything
tint looks nice as well
a intake gives a few extra hp
exhuast gives a nice sounds and a few hp
headers give you a few hp
really depends on what you want show or go

Depends which way you want to go. Go or show. $1000 for rims and tires is going to be pretty tight if you are getting brand new ones. You could easily get an intake and exhaust and maybe a good set of tires. Believe it or not, a good set of tires could very well be one of the mods you can do.

Well I like to start with the exhaust. 4-1 FS race header with 2 1/4 flex and a MBRP catback exhaust. Then 65mm throttle body with an CAI. That whole setup prolly run you over 1000 but if you look around you can find some good deals like I got my used race header and flexpipe for $125. OR you could just save the 1000 and go SC or turbo. In any case moding your car is fun no matter what you choose to do.
