    Firstly we need to know what colour and spec etc. it'd be ideal if you could post some pics up, then we'll be glad to help you spend some cash.

    Depends on what you want really, and what your budget is. You could start with little cosmetic touches like painting your calipers, maybe changing the colour of your mirrors. Or you could change your wheels and go lower etc. your options are endless really, depending on your budget.

    you wont need dampers if you get coilovers as thee are a damper/spring unit bit like what on the front.
    here is what they look like to give you an idea of what i mean

    most are adjustable so can lower the ride hight too and stiffness
