Birthday present ideas

As some of you know, I've had my 2011 LS for a little over a month. I've added the Gen5diy backup camera and driving lamps. Also added an Elite CC, a Cold Air Industries CAI and the 4 gauge cluster (thanks INTIMIDAT3R). The car came with 20"s, leather seats and nice floor mats.

My birthday is coming up and my chief financial officer (wife) asked me what I wanted. I'd like something else for the car that's in the $200.00 range. Can you give me some suggestions,

Thanks,

Matt

IMO, I would kick in a couple of hundred $$ and buy a set of Technostalgia Sequential and Afterburner tail lights. You will never regret it.

+1 for the tail lights, very noticeable mod!

$200.00 doesn't go very far on these cars I've noticed, maybe some nice seat covers??

I don't think you can get seat covers that don't look like seat covers for $200. I am a fan of the tail light idea but based on my experience, it may depend on state regulations. I am likely going to have to take mine out to pass inspection and I'm not looking forward to that, they are a bit of a PITA to get in and out. If your state doesn't care, I definitely say go for the taillights

I think you can get a Cold Air Intake for right around $200 on the V6's...

If locked into the $200, this sounds like a good idea, but he said he already has one
