What "little things" have you done to your car to personalize it?

Just wondering what little things everyone has done to their vehicles to make them "yours" - particularly interested in the cheaper or homemade/DIY things that add a little bit of personality.

For instance, I put a red pin stripe in my grill and rear diffuser:

And I really like the stickers I put in the rear corner window:

I painted my grill "wings" flat black as well as the rear chrome "thing-a-ma-jig". When the weather gets warmer the rear emblems are coming off and the WRX on the grill and trunk are getting red paint. Also too the Agency Power sticker that came with my cat-back on my alternator cover as well as angry rally pigs on the rear side windows.

I like the painted grill... I'd do the same if I could figure out how to remove it without making a big production out of it.

I put an IC screen on mine and added the WRX logo. Very subtle, but if you look down it you can see it very well. It has saved my IC from two birds now lol.

its simple...literally took about 10 min to remove then install after painted. there are i believe four small screws that line the top edge of the grill that needs to be taken off that are a little tricky but if you have patience it will go fine. i used black plasti-dip for that piece as well as the chrome truck strip. if you dont mind the flat black color on the grill its the best bet because plasti-dip builds itself up thicker than regular paint so if there are any scuffs or chips taken out from driving all you need to do is clean it really good and throw another layer or two on.


soon to come will be plasti-dipped chrome underlining that are under the side windows...as you can tell, i don't like chrome on my car at all haha

I'm lucky with the 09 hatch that the rear comes paint matched and no chrome strips. I'll give it a shot taking it out without removing the bumper thanks for the info!

@Dragonfueled - I live right down the road from Raceway Park in Englishtown. Exit 8A on the Turnpike (cliche giving my turnpike exit? LOL)

I REALLY like the way the rear end looks debadged, definitely one of my favorite aesthetic mods that I've done so far.



I've also done the mesh hood scoop insert, sprayed with plasti-dip.

Debagdged with the WRX Decal and TXS exhaust. Dont mind the winter rims/tires haha. I really like the way it looks with no badges and the WRX decal. Gotta get a CF piece to cover that chrome piece up!

This is a GREAT idea. I was thinking the back isn't well lit at all. What power wire did you tap into, or did you run new?
