Little mods that look good, or help out?

I'm wondering if there are any mods that are worth it that are not too much money(say the $5- 100 range) that make a difference in appearance and make it look classy? I'm about to buy a 2010 Cyber Gray v6 with airaid intake performance wise. Any help?
Thanks

Lowering springs make these cars look so much more aggressive.

As far as lowering springs, what would they cost me?

My favorite two mods (cosmetic) where the MPD1 Spoiler and my heritage grille. AAC Sidemarkers were a close 3rd.

Depends on which brand you go with but somewhere around $250-300.

I don't think these are made anymore but if you can find a Barton Industries automatic shift lever you will have an excellent cosmetic mod. You don't specify whether you're getting and auto or not but I love this $100 mod. 6061 alloy aluminum black anodized and engraved. The factory shift knob on the 1LT was/is so cheap feeling and this shifter handle is rock solid. I know if I ever switch to a manual I'll be asking top dollar for mine. These would be a bargain at $150. I'm also a fan of the under dash/footwell LED lighting. If you have the skills to do it yourself the parts are really cheap.
