Just bought 2006 impreza 2.0i -- Help me deck it out!

Hey guys,
My first post! Im 18 and have recently bought a silver 2.0i manual sedan (dont have any pics at the moment sorry, but its a brand new stock factory car so u get the idea...)

This is the plan eventually:
- 17" wheels (probably black chrome??)
- Tinted windows
- Exhaust
- Maybe a spolier (although ill leave it to last, could look alright without it)
- And re-do the stereo but i dont need help with that at the moment
Hmm may get side skirts too eventually...

Does anyone have net sites or pictures of 17" wheels (i like black chrome, i think they would look nice with silver...?), or know of brands that make nice ones?
Tinting windows is easy done, but same with exhausts, any ideas?

And any other recomendations? Any mods you think would be good? Basically i dont want a Rex look-alike, but i want a stylish car!

Also, its been bugging me...the 2.0R has the overhead cam DOHC engine right. Is that a completely different engine design to the standard 2.0i engine, or is it just a performance mod that has been done to the base model? My mate reckons you can get it upgraded so it puts out the extra 20kw...but im not so sure and even if you could itd be expensive right? What other sort of engine mods are available that he may be referring to?

Well hope you guys can help! Thanks for your time,
Cheers

Hi & Welcome to .org

Congrats on your 06 your 2.0i replaces the old GX model so it has an unchanged naturally aspirated SOHC 2.0lt engine, the 2.0R has the brand-new Euro 4 emission compliant DOHC 2.0lt engine.

From memory they don't do non-turbo Imprezas in terms of engine/power mods... handling mods they should do...

welcome to the site

might be worth saving pennys mate and rather than trying to get extra power out of the nasp engine and gettting a turbo engine fitted as soon as.
