New cobra owner

So, yes, I'll admit it, mid-life crisis. Sold my '01 Saab with a stage 2 upgrade, and bought an 01 Cobra. All I can say is, "what took me so long?"
Totally enjoying this car. Pretty stock except cold air intake. My son already has a list of upgrades. (suspension, exhaust, short shifter, etc).
It's my daily driver, and I will probably never track it, do you seasoned pros have suggestions for me for some mild upgrades?
It has 133K miles, and seems very solid.
