Default ideas to up the class of this car

I'm looking for some good ideas to make this car look more classy. I mean this: everywhere I go, I see street tuners pop by with big stickers and rims with no room for tire wall, rattle cams put on the mufflers to make them sound obnoxious, spoilers that look like somebody thinks it'll make a difference at high speeds and then there are guys with old classic cars that have been restored and are in immaculate condition and they have them painted in the original hemi orange and soiled up with a larger motor and new carburators under their hoods. What I'm talking about is the exact opposite: where a chauffeur waxes and cleans his car for every trip, the chrome is in order and the car is always shiney, functional, formal and gives a sense that the person inside is very important. So far, I've thought of window tint, I have alloy wheels already, I've thought of a two tone paint job, leather seats and saw a kit to convert the back doors to the suicide style.
Anyone have any other (preferably cheap) ideas? Also, has anyone tried to install suicide doors on this car and if so do you have any pics of what it looks like?
Thx all!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I'm not sure there are any serious modders left in this group. If you want to see a cool car, check out the Aura original concept car from '06 (googling should find it-otherwise there are pics somewhere on this forum). Had more of a Vectra influence that got toned down a lot for production. I would have preferred they hadn't but they didn't ask me. The Aura style was really ahead of it's time in the US & the Europeans are way ahead of us on car styling.

yeah, honestly, I didn't even expect a reply cuz its mostly people with problems on this forum. I got some problems with mine, but I still want to make the car liveable and classy just the same. Do you happen to know anyone with the suicide doors mod on this car? I think that would be the coolest mod for this car and id like to see some pics.

Never came across anyone attempting that.

You might try the G6 performance forum for some ideas:

G6, Malibu & Aura are very similar cars.

Suicide doors, tints = class

Merc's are classy. Audi's are classy. Saturns are not.
