Congrats on the new car!! Looks great, I doubt there are too many modifications out as of yet for your car. You could always look into upgrading suspension to get rid of the gap between your tires and the wheel wells, you could also look into an upgraded set of rims to really set your car off!

Nice car, the front lip does more for the 7th gen model, the 8th gen model looks good even without it. Well as good as an 8th gen is going to look

VSA is on by default. if you turn it off, there is a yellow triangle with a "!" in it that displays on the gauge
