What should i do to my car first?

I dont have all the money in the world and at (soon to be) 18 i already have a $384 monthly payment. I know i want to tint my windows, but i want to get some crome details on the exterior and a touch screen navigator. which should i get first? and if chrome, should i get the window trim... side mirrors...what?

Window tint, suspension (drop), rims and exhaust are always a good start.

True. i think i'll start with rims the factory ones i have are ugly :/
i'm not too sure i want to mess with the supension because i just transfered from an SUV to a car so i dont wanna go any lower. i'll wait on the exhaust, i dont think im too interested in that.

Silverstar ultra headlights and/or fogs. K&N drop in filter (40 bucks or so) and intake resonator delete (free) These are a few of the things i did when i first got my car and i had a tight budget

I still have a $350 dollar payment, I was lucky to even get an exhaust and windows tinted; and that about all I want to do since all my money goes to hobbie collecting.

Careful with the chrome, To much chrome can ruin the look of a car
