Get used to the car for a few months first, and fix any problems that might arise. First modifications should be suspension after that, or getting rid of those fugly wheels.

your car is just fine right now. upgrades arent neccessary at all(performance wise).

unless you wanna do some stereo or something or whatever.

but try and get everything running stock first.

then if you want it to go fast, take a driving class at a local track or visit www.drivingconepts.com , they have this thing called Teen Driving Clinic that helps with tons and tons of stuff, it isnt some lame shit, its tight and worth the money. it helped me a lot and all the instructors are really cool.
