The wheels will make your car look cheap if you get anything but professional OE wheels. You might be able to pull off something aftermarket but most stuff looks tacky. and you'll probably end up runing your gas mileage (the whole point of this car)

Try getting some genuine F sport wheels whether the dark gray ones or the newer machine finished ones.

Calipers leave them stock. don't draw attention to 9" Prius brakes. seriously don't. seriously. serious.

if you want to make your car look cool, clay bar, polish, wax it.

This car really doesn't have dedicated upgrades for the examples your looking for. Most people on this forum do steer away from ricing out the cars.

Okay you up want to do some mods to make your CT cool, but you don't want to spend a lot of money...hmm.

Wheels, you get what you pay for, if you are okay with cheap wheels, then just search the wheel sites or maybe check out the other CT Forum and see if any one is selling wheels (the CT does have a different bolt pattern, so selection is more limited).

Here is a link that tells you what bulbs your car has and might help you on your headlight question https://www.xenondepot.com/2014-ct20...bs-s/30165.htm. You can find cheap bulbs on ebay, but they are just that cheap.

Flashing tailights, there are controllers available on ebay, but you have to splice wires

Brake Calipers, just take you wheels off, mask around the caliper and spry with Caliper Paint, not really that hard.

Shift ****, it screws on, but you need to have the right size threads or an adapter, you can find a bunch on ebay
