good mod(s) for under $200??

so as focusfest approaches, i wanna spend a good amount on a something but question is on what? by monday im already gonna paint my stockers gloss black and i cant afford a trubendz borla (or at least the size piping that i want) because it will stretch my budget for the trip itself. im also working on getting some st170 headlights w/ 6k hids by next week, so right now im stuck in a rut. can i get some suggestions from you guys on what would be a good mod, or mods, for my car, and yes for under $200? anything but suspension (cause i have something planned for that ) and cause of the fact im already lowered by 1.8", so c'mon you guys what you got?

o and heres some current pics of my pics:

I would say smoke the side markers (more), smoke the tails, and color match the trunk trim for sure. Then some other little ideas I had were maybe some eye lids for the headlights (idk how that would look with yours), and some emblem overlays that are black. All little things, but thing I think would make the car look a little better.

I would probably say the same thing. Unless you are looking towards anything other than exterior. Maybe some audio?

i was thinking about a double din, i already have a 8" or 10" mach audio sub (made for the svt model) with a sucky 450 watt amp, with a some sony deck i paid $100 at the time for. its not too bad it gives out the most sound when needed but not enough bass.

i have a magnaflow used exhaust for sale if u want it? i think i have it up for $180, il sell it to u for $150. its cut in 2 places, (one cut might need small piece of new piping becuase i failed at cutting it close to my gas tank. and u will also need to extend it anyway becuase u have a sedan. u have to do that to all exhausts to make it fit sedan

piping 2.25, stock i believe is 1.5 or 1.75? its good if your staying NA, i only upgraded to 2.5 boral becuase im going FI.

r u still running with ur cat? theres a resonator installed onto the exhaust. so if u install this on ur car it should have a quiet (prolly only just louder than stock when cruising) sound, but when u get on it louder.
