Install Bilstein HD shocks and struts.
They will raise your car. Most of the guys who have installed the HD's, myself included, have noticed that the car sits noticeably higher, especially in the front.
U.S. models come equipped with what Bilstein calls "comfort" shocks.
Parts of the world with bad roads, like South America, came equipped from the factory with HD's.
Most guys on this site that replace their shocks / struts replace them with the HD's because it gives the car a sportier ride due to the faster rebound rate.
Those that want to lower the ride height of the car install Sportline springs and sportline shocks / struts.
