Hi guys want to do some appearance mods for my XR8, was wondering what you think would be the go?

So far have;

HID lights
tint (obviously)
paint red strip white
debadge

I just want a nice clean cruiser, nothing too in your face

Opinions?

Clear side blinkers sound like the go, what model has them in clear?
My car is white so I wouldnt worry about the gravel so much.

How much can I expect to pay for the side skirts?

Cheers

Clear repeaters are for AU series 2. They are the ones I have. $30 for the pair from Ford.
