Talking Hi from a tiny spec in the Caribbean

Hey Guys,

I'm Justin, I reside in a sunny little island called Antigua. I'm sure there has to be a couple sandy beach lovers like myself from the Caribbean so I thought I'd say hello.

Just a quick look into the car scene on my island

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbXNjX4QCMc

Mostly dominated by Hondas

I recently bought this:

http://www.tradecarview.com/used_car...vitz/12164099/

A 2000 Toyota Vitz (Yaris/Echo) 3 Door

Its currently on water (being shipped from Japan)...can't wait to get it and start doing some Mods oh yeah JDM Goodness!! . There's a car show coming in June that I'd really like to get to take part in and I would like some ideas on how to make it more appealing.

From the pics on the site, the car seems to be quite low already so I am looking to purchase these http://www.andysautosport.com/custom...c=AMRW00157490

16x7 Rims with 42mm offset.

The brake calipers will be painted red of course, any ideas on how to make the engine bay more aesthetically pleasing? I was thinking of either painting the engine cover, I read that aftermarket intakes hurt the low end on small engines, can someone verify this? If it doesnt I would definitely get one.

If you viewed the pics from the link I posted previously, you will see that the interior on these things are absolutely atrocious! I was thinking of ordering some Carbon Fiber Vinyl wrap to cover the dash bits.

How much would I need though?

I know when it comes to looks, most say its personal preference but I still look forward to hearing your comments/suggestions as car modifications have so many different routes I could go down.

Thanks
