I am 30, but have had basically the same mind set even when i was younger. It really up to you since its your car but I personally think alll cars look better either stock and lowered or with a factory lip kit and lowered. Not at all or never was at all a fan of bodykits and crap. Other then that I like the look of some meaty (wide) tires and a nice but somewhat facoty looking exhust tip. Other then that my money is spent in performance, ie. power, suspension, brakes, etc.
