You can remove your emblems and pin striping (if you have it) for a cleaner looking car. I don't know if you're planning on a body kit or any other exterior mods but a nice front lip spoiler is something that won't cost you a bunch of money and you can install yourself. You could also jazz up the interior a little, like aftermarket shift knob, pedals, maybe a dash trim kit.

under the hood you can paint your valve cover and any plastic pieces, such as the fuse box or the fuild tank covers.

Well I'd recommend keeping your Honda emblem, you could even replace it with a different one, like one that has a red background (type-r look) or maybe one with a blue background, something like that to make it stand out a bit. When I said remove emblems I was thinking more like the "Civic" and "VP" emblems. Those are glued on, so you should be able to get them off with a heat gun without leaving any holes.
