Default Quick photoshoot yesterday

I took some pictures of my car yesterday on the way to my friend's house. What do you think?
The wheels were on my car since I bought it, 4 years ago. The front bumper has chips and isn't really nice, but it is what it is. Over the winter I installed the NB2 side sills. I think it really sets the car off.

Any hope for a GV front lip? It's on my list. Have one on my '97 and it's held up great. Hit a semi's blown tire leftover at 70-75 and survived well.

I always wanted to do something with the front bumper, but unsure as to what. Perhaps a front lip will be on my list, other than that, the body is finished in my opinion.

Needs a body colored factory front air dam IMHO. Otherwise nice and clean.

Needs to be less high in the air.

Needs a front lip, needs to be less high, I don't like the wheels nor the dual exhaust.

I like the dual exhaust, and I like the way it sounds. It's quiet which makes it stealthy. I agree with the ride height, but I never scraped anywhere. I'm afraid that if I lower it, it will scrape. I hate those wheels, but I bought the car with them on. They're 16". I'm not sure if I want to go with 15's or not. Should I? What color? Black or silver? I wasn't think 6UL's, I'm thinking more like a SSR.

As for the front, I always wanted a factory air dam, but can never find one. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I've been thinking about the ride height a lot lately...what should I do to correct the wrong? I have FM sway bars already which seemed to clean up my body roll when cornering. I want to put springs on, but do I really need adjustable shocks? I just want it to sit a hair lower so it doesn't look the way it does, while at the same time maintaining a decent ride with better handling. Keep in mind, I drive this car everyday that it is nice out, I only autocrossed it once and don't really plan to again anytime soon.
Any recommendations?

The cheapest way would be to buy some used lowering springs but personally I'd just get some used coilover setup. Your shocks are probably blown by 150k...
