Mod fever

So, I purchased my '11 300 at the beginning of October and almost instantly fell in love. Its a plain old white touring and I was immediately told that the white 300 was the ugliest and it was virtually impossible to improve. Well, challenge accepted! It's a work in progress, but so far:
-tinted windows
-Grillcraft grille
-Blacked out the headlights

Ordered a few cans of plasti-dip, going to cover up that horrid chrome trim, never was a fan of it. My question: what's next? Some black rims will be up next in the spring, but after that I'm drawing a blank. New exhaust? CAI? Tuner? Any inspirational tips are appreciated


Sidenote; I grabbed some tips on painted the headlight bezels from this forum, but my experience with high-heat painting motivated me to make a few modifications to his process. It was a bit of a daunting task, what with baking wires in the oven and me being relatively new to car mods. Took about six hours from start to finish, did the grille while I had the bumper already peeled off. Sealed up the headlights with some left-over high heat sealant I had lying around. Three weeks in, I've had no problems and plenty of compliments!

Totally agree with that ^^^^ as I believe white is a blank canvas to work with. You can paint vs. plasti dip the chrome surrounds at the window and other chrome trim. I think that might last a bit longer than plasti-cip.

Other mods? Well, it's wide open. Performance, aesthetics, audio (that's always a very rewarding mod), LED interior lights, etc..the list is long.

Good luck with whatever you choose to do!

Re: Mod fever

Thanks guys. Tuning is going to be coming eventually, followed by maybe a new exhaust, havent decided. There's a 50/50 chance I'll cave and end up trading-up for the 5.7L haha

If your going to trade hold off on mods ...will not see any return on the investment.

Re: Mod fever

Well aware of that, learned the hard way on my last car haha

Realistically, its either mod or trade, I just haven't decided which way to go. The current mods have costed about $550, so not much harm done. Need to really decide if I need a bigger engine i think.
