Looks good, you could:

Spray the boot handle,
New alloys,

Thats all i can think of really, once it has been debadged and the spoiler put on it will look much better

1. remove the badges on the boot
2. remove the rear wiper and put a bung in its place
3. remove the side rub strips
4. get some gm astre mk 4 side repeaters covers 15 at the most
5. plane font number plates with no othwer writing 25 at most
6. -60mm spring kit ie jamex or a sping and shock combo ie spax 60 + for springs 200 + for a full set
7. team dymanic pro race 2's in matt black 15" jr has some for sale 380
8. piper full s/s zorst with oval tailpipe 280- 300

You have to cut the old one out yes, not sure how much modding of the bumper is involved though.
