What Should I Do First?
I have a 2001 Celica GT Automatic and I haven't done anything to it yet. I was just wondering where should I start? Any advice ?

How much do you want to spend? What are you looking for?: look? Performance? thumbsup both?

Because your baby is AT My thinking is: go for look first.
Here are some "good looking" suggestions:

Urgent!!!
1. ANTENNA (stock puke )
2. Clear Corners
3. Body Kit

Cheap & Easy
Exterior:
- antenna
- Clear Corners
- Tail lights
- vynil fill-in
- caliper paint
Interior:
- idiglo gauge faces
- interior lighting & footwell neons
thumbsup
