In need of opinions!

Hey guys, new to the forums. I'd love to get some feedback on my car, what would really make it look good. The side shot is about all I have that isn't flip-phone quality. I plastidipped the rims, grille, debadged the back, painted calipers white (and drums), and have HIDs installed. Any help would be appreciated!






(apologies for only having right angle shots, I just noticed I have zero left angle shots.)

Tint and lowering (either springs or coilovers) tend to be popular appearance mods (very few people seem to lower for functionality). I would paint the door handles/mirror black. I think the white dip would be a close match to see if it looks any good. Check out the Mk2 picture thread

I think another thing that sets off any sedan is a spoiler, nothing huge, something subtle. Like oem or close. Also, like adam said, lowz are key, the really help the looks.

I agree on going a little lower. i can't stand cars so low they need additional camber to drive straight or fit regular sized wheels. also, stickers add mad HP
