Are you after cosmetic looks or performance?

Clear side repeaters, mist washer jets (if not already fitted). Paint/re paint brake calipers/drums, makes it look a lot newer even if just painted black :)

Bonnet lip, light 'eyebrows', HIDs if you've got projector headlights?

Chrome exhaust tip, spray all black plastics gloss black? Hydrodipping?

Few questions that are going to make me look stupid here, what is a bonnet lip ? What is light eyebrows ? What is hydro dipping ? I'm looking at getting a new exhaust aswell so would there be any point in a chrome exhaust tip ?

A bonnet lip is like an additional piece of plastic/fibreglass that sticks to your bonnet above your grill, I'll link you to a post when I'm home from work.

Light eyebrows are like a piece of vinyl/plastic/paint that goes across the top edge of your headlights which just gives your car that little difference from others :), again; I'll link you to a thread.

This is an example of hydrodipping on my car, with a carbon fibre pattern

As for performance, a basic service may improve it.

After that, a K&N air filter (panel or induction, your call).

Remap/bluefin if it's a turbo, if NA then it's not really worth it. If it's a turbo then a bigger intercooler may help.

iridium spark plugs may show a very slight improvement

High lift Cams will provide more high end power, at the loss of low down grunt but that's getting into the expensive stuff! Along with getting your engine rebored/machined! Aha
