Default New Car! Modding suggestions needed!

So I just test drove the new Civic V AT today, and boy do I love it! So I am planning to book it within the next week, and can't decide between white or black, but I'm leaning more towards black and then modding it to make it look mean.

What I need to know is,

1) I have seen many users equipping their Civics with BMW style Angel Eyes. What is the cost of these and also where are they available in Mumbai?

2) I have decided to upsize to 16" black alloys, so would a 205/16 profile be good?

3) Are there any LED tail light modifications with black casing? If so, for how much? And if not, where in Mumbai can I get them smoked, does 4 seasons do it?

4) What is the best tint I can go for?

5) What are the best spoiler options for the civic?

Thank you.

Are you talking about smoking your stock lights or smoking an aftermarket unit?

Well if there is an aftermarket smoked unit available, then I wouldn't smoke it. Bu if there isn't, then I would smoke the stock unit.

Thank you.
1)The BMW style Angel Eyes headlights cost around Rs.12000/-
2)You have not mentioned profile. Please do.
3)Yes, LED tail lights also are available but im not sure of the pricing. I have an idea that they are around 7-8K.
5)The best looking spoiler is the Type-R replica one. iTnerd on the forum have it on his civic. I think it is around 15k in carbon fiber and around 9k in all plastic.

Not too sure about the body kit, I don't want a very over the top look on the car as I often use the 320i and I'm not sure how much I personally would use this car, which means that my mother would be using it more than I would.

But how much do the body kits go for, and which one's the best?
Also which dealer do you guys suggest for the Head/Tail lights and body kit/spoiler etc.?

How much does that Mugen kit retail for? Also I was originally planning for black because I had a slightly darker image in my head. Also there are plenty of white Civics out there, but I've hardly seen a black one.

I don't really want to go too fancy on this thing with body kits and stuff, so first I'll just start of with lights, rims and tints and maybe a spoiler. But I still don't know if/where these parts are readily available in Bombay.
