Hey guys. Just got an 06 SE and wanted to share what I've done so far....
-I removed all the black plastic pieces and primed, painted and clear coated them... Boy, was that needed. And it came out looking real nice!
-Taped off the grill and sprayed it. Looks clean now.
-Put in the white led interior lights from Carid.com. Nice inexpensive upgrade for your interior lights. Much brighter interior now.
-Put in the Lloyds Ultimats. Great quality and perfect fit. Luxurious feel.
-Put in the dark smoke Weathertech wind deflectors hood, sunroof and doors for a nice sleek look.
-Ordered the Coverking leatherette custom seat covers for the front and second row.
-Replaced the idol pulley and tensioner. Got rid of whiny noise.
-Replaced the oil pressure sending unit. Fixed faulty gauge.
-Put in the 6000k xenon headlights and fogs. Big improvement.
-Ordered the 18" rims from the 2010 LE
-Ordered the Continental CrossContact 275/60/18's
-Ordered the Bilstein HD shocks
-Ordered some 30mm spacers
-Ordered some H&R lowering springs.
Now looking for some measurements for polyurethane sway bar bushings and correct size for Moog end links. Anybody know??
So yeah, I'm giving my orphan Pathy some love. Advice? Comments? Thanks!

I ordered three pairs of these:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006R0XYGY/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00

Like 'em a lot...very "white" light, brighter than stock but not so obnoxiously bright that I can't use them while driving. I do a lot of night time mountain bike riding with the bike and gear in the back (seats folded down), and these lights completely illuminate the cargo area where the stock ones didn't.

The Lloyds Ultimats are available all over.. I got mine from Carid.com.

Easy to navigate site. Great product with superior fit and finish.
