Talking 2005 ZX4 ST build

First, I'd like to say Hey everyone!
This is my first post and I hope I'm doing everything right.

Some quick info on the car..
-2005 Zx4 ST
-88,000 miles
-manual

I picked up my Zx4 ST after a bad accident. I just bought it to have a car while I fixed my Eclipse, but ended up selling the Eclipse because I was so pleased with my newly acquired hot rod.
About a month ago, I decided I wanted to start doing some work to it.

At first I wanted to do just cosmetic stuff. (Interior lights, Caliper paint, tinted windows/tail lights) But then I found this site and everyone seemed so cool and devoted towards their Focus that it kinda motivated me.

I'm not sure if anyone would like updates but I will be definitely putting some cash into my ST. So if you guys would wanna see some updates with pictures and stuff I'd be glad to provide.





Ignore the extremely dirty Rims..




Currently All I have installed is a K&N FIPK performance wise, but any recommendation of what you think/would want to see done I will consider.

What I plan on doing so far in order (probably)

- ̶A̶u̶t̶o̶l̶i̶t̶e̶ ̶1̶0̶4̶'̶s̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶n̶e̶w̶ ̶w̶i̶r̶e̶s̶.̶ ̶
-W̶i̶n̶d̶o̶w̶ ̶t̶i̶n̶t̶/̶s̶o̶m̶e̶ ̶a̶c̶c̶e̶n̶t̶ ̶p̶a̶i̶n̶t̶i̶n̶g̶
-starfuryt550's interior light swap
-2.5" exhaust (not sure on brand yet)
-Balance shaft delete
-Suspension lowering kit (coilovers?)/New wheels/20 or 30 mm wheel spacers
-stress bar/front and rear sway bars
-Slotted rotors (maybe)
-Engine mounts
-Cam gears
-Tune
-New paint job maybe?

Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks!
