Make my Rav4 look good?

How can I make my 2001 Rav4 look good without spending too much? I already painted the calipers red and the drums black. I installed a new head unit and am getting 2 12" sub woofers in a few months. I was thinking about new rims but i'm not sure which ones to get. Also i was going to try and put on a hood scoop, put on 2 red stripes down the sides and tint the windows. Anything else you can think of will be appreciated.
-Thanks!

Most sounds good - not sure about the stripes though

You could Change the front grill and Change the antenna



But that would start to add up.

SBoy welcome to R4W

A nice set or 17" or 18" set of rims will really make your RAV look
hot.
As for the Design, well that's the tough part
Do a search on this site under 4.2 for "rims" or "wheels".
Also go to the affiliate sites, Some have sections specific
to mods...
There used to be an Organized Photo Gallery on this site which
I am very, very grateful for. I was able to see my current
rims in the Side / 3/4 views.

Ounce you find your rims you could buy them used if you want to spend
less than half the price. Also you can put some better tires on your ride.

Cheers Walt

The new rims sounds like a good idea, do you have any idea how much i would be paying for a set of new rims?

A typical good quality 18" should be around $700 + tax US.

My Enkeis where $1100 TX inc. CAN Dollars.

I bought them used off a Camry located in Texas for
$400 + $100 shipping.

$500 is not bad. I'm looking at some now that are around that much w/o tax. I first have to pay off a $224 speeding ticket then i'll work on making my car look nice. I should get some money for graduation and i have a job so i'll make some.
