I just got a 2012 SEL...

Today I just got a white 2012 SEL, and I'm wondering if theres anything you guys would suggest doing to make my car look nasty. I was thinking of getting a Ford Gel cover and maybe some LED's and vinyl some of the interrior. What do you guys think?

Btw. It's a white exterior with the beige and black interior. Right now im more for looks than speed because I don't have much $$ right now and looks are cheaper for now lol

Thank you and thanks for your help! I think I might vinyl some of the interrior parts to a matte black or carbon fiber, but carbon fiber seems a little mainstream lol. Any suggestions on how to find out where to find instructions to taking apart the dash?
