Nice to see you got a black one with tinted windows, very cool looking.
Id suggest going for a Lukey exhaust, maybe invest in some headers and extractors as well if you have the money.
An OTR CAI with a k&n panel filter will go nicely as well, these two probably being the cheapest and easiest to install option for you if your a bit money cautious.
These basic mods will make a nice noticable difference and for now will make you very happy with your new ride :)
Also in my own opinion, lose the spoiler and get a boot lip, much cooler.

welcome and congrats mate!

and thanks for posting pics of your ride... nice.
only things i would do (I know you didnt ask, but im a big mouth :)), is get some tyre black or something and paint that white writing on the tyres.... pronto ;). and while you are at it, get rid of that chrome lip on the wheel arches.... looks like a 50yo man owned this car before you or something. I'm surprised he didnt put reflector door adges on too :). but congrats on ride again, hopefully many years of holden ownership ahead of you!

edited: and the mudflaps as already said.... ditch'em.

nice ride mate as already said hit up the cai and exhaust if you want a dual exit exhaust hit up an sv6 stock exhaust there fair few around going fairly cheaply like real cheap lol, then just get brackets to hold it up back bumper from a berlina and u got the dual exits swap over mufflers for a good note if thats what your looken for xforce or something like that.

Most of the stuff you should do ASAP involves taking stuff off your car and shouldn't cost much. Lose the:
- Chrome trim on the wheel arches;
- White lettering on the tyres;
- Rims (ok, these would cost a bit to replace);
- Rear wing;
- Mud flaps;

and you'll make a huge improvement right there. I agree, it looks like this car was owned by an "older gentleman" with poor taste.

Good luck with it all anyway. That's an awesome ride to be given as a first car - you're very lucky. :)
