Talking What should I do to my car?

well i don't really think i am going 2 go all out on this car, because it does have alot of miles on it and it is the 1.9L which means it's rated 88HP stock *frowns*

i was thinking though i might want 2 do a few things 2 it anyways, rather it's looks or performance, interior or exterior or w/e!! i want some opinions though from CF if i had my camera i would take some pics but i don't....

i do have 2 new pics of exterior and a few old interior pics that don't look that great:

exterior:




interior(old pics, it looks more cleaned ^ now):






i want 2 get some rims....i might try and go 2 a junk yard some day and find used escort GT rims because those look pretty good but what things should i do? i am leaning more for looks than performance because i'm not going 2 get awhole lot of performance from this engine, if i were to drop a GT engine in it i would have 127 stock which would have much more potential(and it gets better gas, hehe). i want to try to make it look nice not ghotty.

give me your opinions CF!!

i have many things:

1. you can put in new seats, mostly the seats, looks like you murderd quite a few ppl...lol

2. You can buy a stock shifter ay canadian tire

3. You can buy a new car radio

4. if you have quite a bit of money, you can put side skirts, a new bumper, rear bumper as well, but not necessary.

5. Possibly put in a new engine, a V8 sounds good...lmao

6. but mostly, get new seats, or just put something nice OVER them...lol

7. New headlights and rear lights (dont know what they called, lol), possibly from canadian tire, or some store similar that you can upgrade.

8. ya, you should get new rims, but idunno, you prop dont have so much money for all of this so idunno. you mean like REAL rims outta aluminum, or steel, or titanium or w/e they are made of.

9. the interior looks rather cozy, just change the seats!!!, lol, idunno now, you could get a new steering wheel, or a steering wheel cover

10. The wheels.....buy bigger tires and put nice bigass rims in them, make your car go faster anyway cuz they have a bigger circumference.

11. The performance, i dunno, buy like turbo, and that be good, lol

so thats a ll i got, i will write more later.

PLEASE GIVE ME POSITIVE REP!!!!!! lmao

lol, peter i do have new floor mats already (plain rubber in black) idk what happened 2 the seats lmao, but they are comfe, so if i do anything i will just cover them, the red interior limits my ablilites on what all i can do. i do plan on buying some new tires because the back tires are bigger than the front. i don't really think i new engine is a option right now. i want to pretty much stick with the engine i got because swapping engines is a loophole for tons of issues. those headlights and corner lights are brand new so they are staying. the tail lights could be changed, but idk. i will show u the rims i was looking at getting

and pyro, nice idea

well, how about you don't spend a whole bunch of money pimping out a pos, when you can sell it and buy something nicer? and by the way, 1.9L doesn't mean sucky, my integra was 1.8L and it had 134hp, won plenty o races with that car.
