Drive it, enjoy it. Become a better driver, and then see if anything really needs to be changed. If you're talking cosmetic, drive it, and see what personalizations YOU want.

Great advice !! Nothing better than getting some of your own drive time to see what you feel needs to be done instead of spending money you don't need to spend.

I would suggest Exhaust upgrade. Don't go with anything too loud.

I have Corsa. I love it. M Performance Exhaust is great too, but too expensive.

I personally love the OEM 220's for rims, ZCP is nice too.

Definitely do the window trim wrap. Makes it look clean and mean

Window trim wrap is night and day. Makes the car look so much meaner.

Strange. The trim in Black doesn't seem to be a factory option in the U.S. (E93)

It is in Europe, .....although stupid expensive.
