XtraFinder, gave my coloured Icons back in the sideBar, whomever thought it was a good idea to have monochrome (or whatever it is called) Icons in the SideBar should get killed.

geektool (https://itunes.apple.com/it/app/geektool/id456877552?mt=12) a bit difficult to start but you can get wonderful results.
here some geeklets (http://www.macosxtips.co.uk/geeklets/)

and Onyx (http://www.titanium.free.fr/downloadonyx.php) for 2d dock and other things you dont wanna do by terminal
