I try to get the more expensive stuff first. It is hard to save up all that money again you know.

nahh, get Carbon Fiber Hood first. I think your celica looks good with the stock rims so you should get them later. I am getting rims last, right before a sound system. I try to get all other miscellanous things before the bigger stuff.

go for the rims first. the Hood yu have now looks pretty nice. although youll need lowering springs if you get rims. RIMS
