New Evo X Owner seeking general advice

Hello all Evo folks!

I recently took possession of a beautiful octane blue Evo X with 77k miles on the clock, very happy.

The car has some spattering of mods, nothing to really write home about.

After doing a deep clean of the previous owners human slime absolutely everywhere inside the car, it was immediately clear that this Evo was run on a budget and i would like to put this back to the standard it should be.

Without trying to find ralliart interior trim, is there anywhere that offers the trim in carbon? the current trim is oddly scuffed and... misty?

Also on the cards are a set of new wheels. I've seen the rears have a 20mm space with stock studs this has to be the worst thing you can do, so naturally a priority.

Also, rattling heat shields in the engine bay, just a case of thermal wrap to dampen the sound, or are they bolted in?

Thanks Dudes!

For trim parts I guess you might need to try to find a car that's being broken, or someone stripping the interior for to create a tack or rally focussed car. Arnside Motorsport does a lot of X rally prep so might be worth contacting them. EDITED TO ADD: there are a few trim bits currently available on Ebay.

The only heat shield I'm aware of in the engine bay is over the exhaust manifold. If the one that rattling there are aftermarket versions which I think are primarily intended where someone has changed to a four branch exhaust manifold.

Are you sure the 20mm spacers don't have their own studs? Standards Evo X wheels with 20mm spacers fill the arches much better than without, but clearly can't/shouldn't be used unless either the studs are replaced with longer ones or the spacers have their own studs.
