Can't Wait To Mod New 06' C350 4Matic - W203

Just bought a 2006 C350 4Matic in white w/ beige interior. Bought it with about 73k on it. I was able to get my hands on the CarFax and there was a lot of maintenance/repairs reported since the previous 2 owners got most (if not all) of their work done at local Benz dealer. It even showed a time when they got it detailed at the dealer which I thought was pretty funny. Anyways, this is my first Benz and so far I'm loving it. It's a little heavy but still it's pretty darn fast. The ride is very smooth and the bells and whistles are endless. Previously had a 2001 BMW 323ci and a 2003 Maxima SE which were both lot of fun especially that Beamer. The 3 biggest things I cant stand on my car are the exhaust tips or lack there of, the fact that there is no AUX input to plug my iPhone into to play Pandora/iTunes, and the factory 16" rims. That being said, this is the list of mods I am hoping to get done ASAP.

1. 20% Tint all around (except front windshield obvi)
2. OEM Trunk Lip Spoiler
3. CL Style Grill w/ flat hood emblem
4. Clear side markers for the front bumper
5. Chrome Exhaust Tips
6. W203 C230 17" Sport Style Rims (I LOVE those rims for some reason)
7. AUX MP3 input mod (mounted in ashtray)
8. K&N Air Filter

For #3 , #4, & #5, do anyone know if these are pretty simple install yourself? Keep in mind I have never done previous mods myself to any of my cars but this time trying to save a few bucks with a little DIY attitude.

You say 2006 which would make it a W203 but I think this car is classed as a 2007 W204, your vin # would help me to check this first of all.
