What Was The First Upgrade You Did To Your Camaro!!

Hey MC Members,

I am a newbie to MC! I just bought a 2012 1LT 2 weeks ago, I love her! So I was just curious in seeing what the first upgrades some of you did to your Camaros...I was looking for Accesory ideas, Dress up, Gadgets etc. I am excited to make this a hobby! Seeing that I have a 6 year loan on my Car I have plenty of time to save, add and play! I have always wanted to accessorize a car so with the help of you all I was looking for "Must Haves to Cool Haves"

The first on my list that I am leaning towards is having the AAC Color Shift 2.0 Halos and Fogs installed and then from there I wanted to do the Compustar Alarm and Remote start with a DRONE for Smart Phone starting ability and GPS Tracking...What do you think! Please help me with some kewl ideas to gather for my wish list! I would love to hear what you all have done to your ride and lead me in the right direction!

Thanks so much!

My Synergy Edition didn't come with the RS headlights which were a must to me...so Envy's very first mod was paid for in the original deal...OEM HIDs w/LED halos. She went from this...

to this...

My first Mod was to install a simple BLACKWING CAI which only intaled replacing the stock intake tube with a interinal polished intake tube. I retained the stock air box and replacing the air cleaner with a high flow air cleaner. It only cost me 180.00.

The AUX Gage pack and door sill plates were first. But I have also installed green led bulbs for the interior, trunk and rear license plate. Painted the engine cover.
