make VS Sexy Low Budget

Hey guys, I have a VS Executive, that pearl blue/silver(any1 know actuall name) and bugger all money to spend. My uncle is a mechanic and just put a new motor in it for free(lucky me), so mechanicly its all good. But whats the first thing i should do to it? drop it? exhaust? soundsystem? rims? tint? etc. please keep in mind I am a student and have next to no money. So far my plan was to buy chrome trims for the ceptors, and get a exhaust(can post links to one im interested in?) then soundssytem and eventully drop it. Thoughts?

SSSSL cut kings at the front and Extra high towing springs at the rear so it looks like a high heel.

Nice set of wheels, no chrome ****e. Lower it, not too low, make sure you get wheel alignment so you dont chew out the tyres.

Racing stripes, cut your exhaust in half so it sounds tuff, cut springs(rear only), black ceptors with all the trimmings, and spend the rest of your money on huge subs, you'll be fighting off the ****s

The good thing about a VR/VS front end is it looks like a streeter from the factory, just get a 2.5in exhaust, stick with the chasers without dress rings and put some lower king springs and a tint when you can afford it.

Chev badge, unit sticker, ripcurl sticker on the bumper, barina springs (rear only) catback cut at diff, black ceptors with painted centre, VT ss's at the front, feral bogan bitch in the passenger seat and constant look of frustrated confusion on your face behind those large white Oakley sunglasses and snapback.

No, really just put hubcaps/stocks and keep it clean for everyones sake.
