Which modifications are the best?

I have a blue 2010 Camaro RS , and I once I am done paying back my dad for the car, I want to start making modifications and improvements to it. Here is what I know I want so far

- T2 Ports
- Chrome door sill plates
- Chrome kick plate
- Touch radio (Possibly)
- Custom leather dash, and console base (from DSV customs)
- New Bow Tie emblem color

Currently I have a Body Kit, Halo Head lights, Leather interior (except the dash and console base), and black racing stripes

What do you guys think are the coolest or best modifications I can make to my car? Any opinions are appreciated!

don't go the t2 ports, those are ugly IMO. out of your list i like the leather dash and interior stuff. everything else besides the ports and radio you can get for under $100

The ports make a massive difference IMO. I went from this:

The absolute best modification you can make to your car is one that makes you happy.

I like my T2 ports the best, they are the most dramatic cosmetic mod I have done.

Is you go with door sills, make sure to add a touch of lighting to them:

LED strip. The others are actual bulbs I think.

I would say wheels and tires make the biggest difference on a car.

They look really bad ass! Did you do it yourself, or did you get them installed by a professional? I don't think I would trust myself to install it, since it involves cutting the pumper, but if it was semi-easy I would consider it.

The ports are a definite head turner. I myself upgraded a little bit of my performance mods first and now I'm on to cosmetics. The ports are next in line for me. I've PD'd my bezels and bowties and I installed underbody and footwell lights so far.

I've done quite a bit of plasti-dipping as well:
