Not $1000 yet, but I have a few deals I'm hoping to make soon.

$240 K&N 63 Series intake
$200 WeatherTech floor (front) and trunk mats
$30 bluetooth obd2 reader with Torque app for my phone (awesome for the price)
$0 NPP fuse pull
$22 SLP skip shift eliminator
$34 fitted sun reflector

Deals in progress
$80 Mike Norris catch can
$450 for 2nd set of rims with tires (1LE tires will crack in the cold). Over the limit with this one.

I put 350 dollars or so into the exhaust. No headers yet, went with an x pipe with one chamber flow masters. Sounds amazing! Black rally stripe with hockey stripes. Harness so the DRL's stay on at night, and did the LED running lights. Blacked out my bowties, and went with some Niche wheels, which I added black vinyl too each wheel because they were simply to silver. Turned out great with no air bubbles and I'm a perfectionist so they're on straight. I'm over the 1000 dollar mark on wheels alone, but I don't remember the order. Also went with a K+N black cold air intake too. That's about it. More to come. So excited.
