Favorite cosmetic mod

I'm looking to get some ideas for my red rock metallic camaro. What are some of your favorite mods you've done to your car?

Painting the drip tray on my heat extractor. It is a subtle thing, but car people notice it and always stop and say it looks nice. Second is probably some carbon fiber hood spears (black car) with red 6.2L and silver PERFORMANCE down the cowl, makes for a sharp looking combo with the drip tray. The CF keeps it from looking like "too much"

River City Creations in San Antonio does the painting of almost any of the under-hood items. I don't recall where I got the headlight covers, but it was one of the major vendors that sponsor on here.

Painted gloss black '69 Z/28 hood and deck lid stripes, painted flat black all exterior badges and emblems, painted CRT body color match all interior grey and silver trim pieces, replaced rims with matte black TSW Panorama rims. Everything is either CRT or black, no chrome left.

I think I'm the only one here who has true, (not stick on) billet outer door handles.
Got these at Indy camaro5fest 2012. They come in several styles.
If anyone else here has these let us know.
