in terms of performance, it really depends on what you want with your car. If you want to keep it inexpensive, then a snorkel-delete would be your best bet, since it's free.
Well so far I have done the following:

Purchased a Detailing Kit
Installed a Steeda CAI
Performed a Snorkel Delete

I am loving the way the car feels and in general working on it. I plan on adding Chrome Handels & Window Trim, getting her Tinted, and possible adding an after market exhaust. I don't know what order I will be doing these in but does anyone have any other suggestions? I also want to improve the interior lighting and color. The ambient lighting seems a light under powered for what I like.

Hey when you get the chrome window trim, can i have your black trim? If you know how to take it off, tell me and I'll swap you. I hate the chrome trim on my Titanium. I like the black look.

chrome trim you can get and stick on top of your existing trim - i haven't found any black trim yet :(

i guess what you could do is get the chrome trim online, since it's an adhesive. paint it black, then put it over your vehicle's chrome trim? lol
