Maybe I missed it, but what color is the top? Let's say it's black, so could add some other black pieces to help set it off. Like others have said, spoiler, side skirts, front splitter.

Lower it on stock bolts = free
alignment = $80 or so
plasti dip rims ( black ) $40
black window tint $200 or so??
All of this is reversible if you no like. And will make a big difference in the cars attitude!!

Bought my '07 Machine Silver ten years ago and it was bone stock.



After an extensive list of mods:
-Tints
-Lowered on stock bolts
-Carbon fiber splitter
-Carbon fiber side skirts
-Carbon fiber ZR1 style spoiler
-Relocated hideaway license plate
-Straight piped exhaust
-Exhaust enhancer plate
-Tinted eagle eye LED tail lights
-Black badges
-LED interior lighting
-LED reverse lighting/license plate
-HID Fogs
-Race mesh front grille and side grilles
-Red brake caliper covers
-Z06 heads
-Stance SF03 Gloss Black rims 20" x 11 rear & 19" x 9.5 front
-Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires 285/35R20 & 245/40R19

This is the final result:











Looks a lot more aggressive now in my opinion.

Plastic Dip your rims, window tint and paint your calipers.....or buy a black Vette.... Those start out looking menacing.

Start with powder coating your calipers. Red or blue would look good.

Any ideas welcome thank you!!!!
I prefer the clean crisp look of your car the way it is now.

Save your time and your money....

Keep the car the way it looks now.

Hey man,

Sure do! There's so many options for parts and I had to do a ton of research to find the "right" ones. Check out the below links:

CF Kits is great for carbon fiber parts. The installation was easy and only took a couple of hours drilling holes and using a rivet gun. If you need detailed installation instructions, send me a PM and I will be more than happy to help you out.
Carbon Fiber Splitter:
http://www.cfkits.com/shop/carbon-fi...ront-splitter/

Carbon Fiber Side Skirts:
http://www.cfkits.com/shop/carbon-fi...rts-base-only/

Carbon Fiber Splitter/Side Skirts Package Deal (better to get this one):
http://www.cfkits.com/shop/carbon-fi...rts-base-only/

I bought my Carbon Fiber ZR1 Style spoiler off another website, but the one of CF Kits looks pretty similar (and it's cheaper than what I paid).
http://www.cfkits.com/shop/carbon-fi...ts-all-models/

Exhaust enhancer plate (got this from RPI Designs - they also have other options for aftermarket exhaust systems so your tips fit within the plate curvatures):
https://www.rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=605

Hideaway license plate (RPI Designs):
https://www.rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=950

Racemesh side fender grilles (RPI Designs):
https://www.rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=2182

Racemesh front grille (RPI Designs):
https://www.rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=2174

Caliper Covers (RPI Designs):
https://www.rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=1772

Eagle Eye Tinted LED Tail Lights (Vette-Lights) You can opt for no tint or tint:
https://www.vette-lights.com/product...ail-lights-set

As for the wheels and tires, I ordered through a local shop in Toronto, Ontario. You can find them on the Stance Wheels website link below:
http://www.stancewheels.com/wheels/r...03-gloss-black

Also, lowering the car on stock bolts is extremely easy (FREE) and it made a drastic difference in ride height for me. The car is actually "too low" now but it looks and handles a lot better.

Hope this helps!

Rahul

If you want aggressive use these stripes and lettering. Relatively cheap, except for fines.
