you can paint you kidney grills black...but that really depends on the other colors on the car.

i did it to mine and i think it looks really good...

of course i'm painting my entire car flat black...

you could make a ram air intake...with a piece of tube and some clamps...

basically replacing your air filter box...

i wouldn't recommend it though. there are instructions on the interwebz if you google "installing ram air intake"

its actually quite easy to change to a short ram intake or a CAI, i did it in a matter of hours and made my car sound more gruntier and gave it an extra kick aswell, other things ive done that were quick were add angel eyes to it and changed the gear shift and pedals but an air intake is easy as

yeah but if you don't use a filter i.e. not buying one...it's kinda dangerous to have just a tube ramming air into your intake...

imo always have a filter...

make yourself a cardboard WBK and then a wooden spoiler... I bet that would look almost as nice as this car:
