I recently added a set of Borla Stingers and an Xpipe to my 2008.  I also added the vent screen accessories to the side vents  and the front air dam.  My question is, what other upgrades would you suggest to make my 08 look finished and perform better?

Replace the plastic console cover with a nice padded leather one, embroidered with a your favorite logo or something. Much easier on the elbows. Really helps to add some class to the interior. It was my first mod.

I was thinking about doing the carbon fiber dash kit, to replace the grey plastic around the radio.  Has anyone else done this?  I sat in a '09, and it appears that carbon fiber is now stock for this part.

The first thing I did to my 2008 coupe was install the Corsa Extreme exhaust w/crossover pipe.
Next DOT4 brake fluid w/stainless steel lines.
Next American Racing Header system.
Of course, Forgeline 3 piece wheels.  They should arrive in the next two weeks.
The car has an awesome sound.  

Big brakes will come next.
Cheers

I just installed an Attack Blue high flow air filter in the factory intake and opened the shroud below the intake. I can feel more power and I see an improvement in gas mileage. It will spin the tires before the traction control has time to take over.
