Default Ideas to make a monte carlo stand out

I have a 06 white monte carlo. I just got it about 2 months ago and I want it to stand out from the crowd. It just a plain car and I thought racing stripes would do the trick also if i was to get racing stripes I wouldn't even know where to have them done at. I am open to suggestions at this point and would love to know anything else that i might do to it too. I have a pretty budget. Also this is my first post so i'm sorry if i put this in the wrong section sorry if i put this in the wrong section.

Hi HooverViking & Welcome to the Monte Carlo Family

(Really sorry about the deletion of your prior thread) Had a power outage while I was merging your threads

I like your `sweet Monte How many miles ? options ? Is it the 3.9L 242 HP ? How many owners ? Have you had any problems ?
Do you have the service records of past owner(s) ?
Is your Monte in top shape now ? Tires/brakes/tune up etc ?

Check out our MCF Gallery & see what other member's have done to their Monte's > Several have stripes...

Above is a pic of my former `White Monte...I just ghosted the back & removed the Chevy Emblem & put a CAI on it. I loved it, but had to sell it to pay for college

Check back on your thread to see what our member's post on your request.
EnJoy the MCF 4-Sure & we will look forward to your future posts

Welcome to the fourm. !!!

Gosh I don't have a clue? (LOL)

But seriously depends on your budget

The most outstanding feature on my car (I belive) is the MPD Ram Air hood incorperacted with the K&N air induction system (CAI induction is better though)

Wheels are another good place to start, wondow tinting

Check out some of our member's picturres to get ideas

I am ole school and like flames (not for everyone)

Hello and welcome to the forum. Racing stripes always add a nice sporty appearance to the Montes. I would go to a decent automtive paint shop and insure they put on regulation chevrolet stripes. Some people like them up the hood, across the top and over the trunk. I did mine hood and trunk only. If you have a tight budget ebay sells regulation stripe kits and either you could attempt to apply them or have a graphics shop do the work. I like painted stripes as they wax and polish up like the rest of the cars paint. There are tons of other appearance enhancements to be done to, from mild to wild.......

Hey buddy and congrats on your purchase ! You can make it look like my old 06 MC =p , I made mine black and white, but your has the sports spoiler, so itll look better ! I started like this...

Rims - > Brake calibers -> Tints ->Interior paint red -> Painted my bottom stripe black instead of the plain grey.

IMO skip the rims, Rims are too much trouble unless you keep them at 17'' or 18'', but who likes small rims?! Paint your brake calibers a off set color of what color scheme you want your car. Ex, mine was red, while the car was black and white. Now my new MC is black and yellow ! 07 ss, i'll post pics if you need ideas.
