In my opinion, there are two things that people care about looking at when viewing a car such as a Camaro.

1.) How it sounds - since you said NON performance, my pick would be for number 2:
2.) Under the hood -

The Camaro already looks pretty good bone stock from the outside. However, under the hood is just a gross mess of hoses, wires, and just pure uglyness. When someone sees a muscle car, the first thing they think is "What does it sound like?" After that (especially if it sounds good), they then ask "What's under the hood?" My choice for the best non performance (in other words COSMETIC) mod to do on our 5th Gen is heater hose relocate, evap solenoid relocate, fuel rail flip, paint intake,throttle body, fuel rails, valve covers, coil brackets and coils (I haven't painted my coils yet). A great looking engine bay (might I add it was pretty cheap to do all this myself), mixed with a great sounding exhaust, mixed with an already good looking car = triple threat winner. Below are a few pics.

Best Non Performance Mods

The front of my car is my pride and joy.
Red Carbon Fiber Bowtie
Eagle Eye Headlights with 8K HID
CCFL Foglights with Stage 3 LED foglights.

I would like to upgrade my grille with the ZL1 grille and either the SS front end or the ZL1 front end. I haven't decided yet. But that is what my goal for later on.

That's true enough - hence the engine cover. Your bay is greatly improved, but I like the engine cover myself.
