What to do First?

The time has come to decide which first mod to purchase! It is a tough decision, but one that i wanted to get some feedback on and see where would be a good starting place. I have decided that engine modifications like CAI and exhaust will wait until the engine has a little more miles on it so after the first oil change at 7500 miles. That leaves the following:
VIS Carbon fiber hood (oem style)
3d Carbon Euro Series Bodykit (minus the dorky rear window spoiler)
H&R coilover kit (rear sway bar and front tower bar will be purchased with it)

wheels will come once i get back home from deployment, along with window tint. so what would you guys do first?

Suspension first, an OEM carbon hood won't be nearly as fun as a dialed suspension will give you.
