steve, i think i read another post by you here wherein you were questioning other forum members on the cost of ownership, maintenance, etc. you also indicated the cost of ins and the fact that you're still in school. thats all fine but if I can offer any advice to you it would be to own and use your new car for some time before you start putting money toward cosmetics, i.e. paint/wheels and such that you get some experience behind the ownership and maintenace of such a vehicle.
reliable automobiles but they do need and require "looking after", i.e. preventative maintenance and when things break...can get costly...quick....
putting that kind of money into you're new car (paint, wheels, etc) is not something you will recover should you decide the car is "not for you" in the next 1-2 years...
i gather you're young and want "that look" for your new ride. take your time....drive it, get to know it....
