Some cheap mods that you've done | Looks and performance

Alright guys. Here's the thing... I'm the typical 16 yr old who's low on cash, and would still like to be able to modify my car. I've been on FF for a little while, and I love it! You guys help me out with everything :]

Now for this thread, I would like everyone to post some of the cheap mods that they've done to their car. I'm talking about some things that you found for a good deal at an auto store or on eBay that turned out really well, or something that you've done on your own with some materials (DIY). I've seen a few similar threads, but they kinda died off and aren't in popular sections. So this one is for everything, you can post any mod you think turned out well and post as many as you want. I really like the ideas you guys come up with :]

Here are some of the cheap things I've done to my car:
Chrome exhaust tip - $10
Blue LED dome light - $10
Blue LED license plate lights - $10
Blue LED shift knob - $10
12" pulsing blue LED - $20
Two 10" blue LED light strips - $20
Clear corners - $20
Aftermarket pedals - $25

I will post pics sometime in the next week when my car is done being serviced.


So heres a recap, please, everyone post your cheap mods that you've done. It can be anywhere from FREE-$50. Then pics along with it always help! By everyone doing this, we can all help each other out and get some nice ideas!

Thanks!

Yep, no ashtrays after '04. I need to do a mod to the CD storage compartment to make it just a place to put other stuff.
