Welcome, as far as performance, the taurus, especially the fourth generation, isn't really a performance car, but it does have above average acceleration for a family sedan. Rims and tint is always a good choice

Yes, as far as options and aesthetics, there is a lot you can do. Performance wise, yes it is limited. But have fun!

Save your money for repairs. Seriously. Don't blow it on BS accessories. Any 10+ year old Taurus needs some work.

Just note that, since you have a 2003, you can't swap your grille out for the chromed ones on eBay. Different shape-it's not just the spear that's missing.

Haven't seen one for the G4's yet (does anyone have a link to one?)

thanks guysa so far today that i have veiwed from threads to photos i have gotten some info on what i could possibly do to my 03. some things are dtill up in the air but others i am going to do. this is the first time i've ever owned a taurus. i've had an 89 camaro rs t-top and a 95 t-bird performance wise cars. so this is a different direction for me with a sedan. didn't think there was much performance wise i could do to the car and seems i'm right on that but other things theres a lot more that you can do than i thought
