What Exterior mods do you wish were cheaper to buy?

I'm thinking of starting something up and wanted to know what you guys thought.

What exterior/interior mods, like hood vents, side markers, etc. Do you wish were cheaper because you have a hard time paying what they cost for some black or carbon fiber replacements?

CF hood vents and mirror covers for 2 and 3 hundred each seems like a bit much.

OEM style splitters don't seem to exist in anything other than CF.. so that's irritating. price seems reasonable, just can't find a gloss black

Take your oem pieces to a body shop and have them sprayed gloss black. I did my kidney grills, mirror caps, side markers and hood vents for under $150.

Yea if anything I would probably get them CF wrapped since its purely cosmetic either way, just seems excessive for such a small piece of CF.

Rear diffusers. I wish there were lower priced gloss black options.

Wraps. Seems like a good job is crazy expensive. Even just doing a roof seemed extreme.

Also the cost of new wheels is insane

LOL Everything. A lot of things are overpriced. Why is a painted M3 badge $90???? Color matched reflectors are $100. Its a little ridiculous.
