99 Camry LE Asthetic Mods

Alright, so im gonna be getting a 99 camry le, im not happy about it but im gonna make the best of it. Right now its driven by an old lady and it looks it. I wanna make it more appealing to people of my age group (18). Im looking for some relatively inexpensive things i can do to make this stock car look nicer.

heres a link to pretty much what my car looks like(not mine tho). Same color and stuff, its got pinstripes too.

I was hoping to spend like 500 or less. If thats not enough to do anything then i'd go for like 800. Plz help, i dunno anything about car asthetics, so don't count on me to know what "good rims" would look like. Thx in advance.

This is a "good rim".

NO no no, what he means is you don't need rims, you need wheels. Do yourself a favor and go look up rims in the dictionary, then look up wheels. I'd personally look into performance mods before aesthic mods.

I think it's a perfectly fine looking car the way it is, but whatever.

I have a 1999 Toyota Camry CE. Trust me, in people our age group whatever you do will still make them laugh--it will always be a Camry. Hell, it may even look stupider if you do anything. I'd suggest just leaving it be and save your money. (Not saying I dont like it, but I get made fun of plenty.)

No no no, first you have to have balls and not rely on a car to pick them up

If that was how it worked, sales of Corvettes would go down considerably.
