    She is looking great mate... I started with a 2004 LS (limited spec ) and have been working on making mine look much better.

    Things to consider adding to your list would be...

    * SRI or Eibach springs for a slightly lower ride and better connering
    * SRI front and rear bumpers (look on ebay for SRI's being broken and get the parts from there... you will need the back box also for the SRI look)
    * Window tinits if you like that sort of thing.
    * SRI or VXR lip spoilers

    oh... and dont forget the rear lights... Make sure and get the break light also...

    Next things for me after that get much more expencive and harder to find... Full VXR interior for example.

    Thanks for the reply. Well mine is a club but its also very limited spec. Think il keep my eyes out on ebay for a lip spoiler as i think will make rear bit more appealing.
    Also im not sure if i wanna do a full sri replica, ie front nd rear bumpers. Good luck finding a VXR interior i think that would probably be beyond my budget
