Remove sp20 stickers, remove plastic door strips and paint headlight inserts black.
They are all DIY jobs that transform the look of the car

Nice to see you are making a work log.

Do you have any plans of doing suspension mods?

What would I do first? Suspension and Tyres.

Some good quality springs with a shock to match.

Aero Wiper blades all round best thing I ever did!!!

Its really up to you where you start, but theres many Sydney kids down there to give you a hand when it comes to modding time

Go find a suzuki swift at a wreckers or something and take its antenna!!! Another great easy mod.

i agree too!

Im planning on just putting some mazda 3 SP23 series 1 snowflake rims on it

They look neat and give the car a pretty tidy finish.

No leave the head lights chrom looks so much better on a black car ie swiftjimmys, has chrom head lights looks really clean,

Yer start mainly with suspension its the best mod you can do for these cars will be keeping a watch of your build

I need opinions

looking at dressing the beast up with some nice shoes

i think im going to settle for 17's

Going for the black on black look with the yellow king springs and yellow brake calipers.

Just after an opinion out of these two rim styles.
(First two images are a bit blury but i couldnt find any clearer ones)

Lenso DC5 17 x 7.0


Lenso DC6 17 x 7.0


Asuka G12 17 x 7.0

But that's just my opinion
