Lowering springs and wheel spacers.

Might screw up how the car actually works, but we're not talking about that.

Tires.

90% of the time the wheels can be upgraded to look better.

99% of the time tires can be upgraded. Visually, it's a small thing. But you can't tell me GRMers don't notice it instantly.

 

EDIT: Yes, I'm being silly. 99.9999% of the times that the wheels can be improved, they make 10000% of the difference that tires would... cheeky

"Off-road" wheels, boggers, and a big ole honkin' LED light bar in the grill? Oh wait....

Wheel spacers maybe, but there's plenty of modern performance cars that leave the factory with the correct ride height. I wouldn't want my cayman to be any lower, from an aesthetic or functional standpoint. However, it does currently have aftermarket wheels that are .5" wider with 5-7mm lower offsets on top of that. So wheels and spacers are pretty accurate.

I am assuming we're talking purely aesthetic, not functional. Porsche does a pretty good job of getting the ride height right, but most cars do benefit from a little moar low. In fact, I've spoken to some of the Mazda PR people and they admit to loading the cars with sandbags for publicity shots...
