Welcome, looks great as is, but additional upgrades or changes are only governed by how deep your pockets might be.

thank you!! :)
as far as budget goes im working with about 5k right now for some upgrades. so im just wondering where to start. mechanically my car is in excellent shape so i dont need to replace anything like that . i was thinking wheels and a better suspension. i kinda wanted something mid tier.... ive seen some suspensions for around 1k on k5 store but im just not sure which one?
thanks again.

Welcome! Clean k5 👌

Really depends on you and what you want.

GDI engines are notorious for carbon buildup. Look into running a can of CRC as you dont know if the previous owner maintained car.
If you're not too concerned about performance / engine bay, id still consider a oil catch can to possibly extend the longevity of your engine.
K5 specific ones can get pricey, but even if you're on a budget you can grab ebay/amazon ones for the time being.

Apart from that it's really your build! Do your thing.
