Body Kits - Need Advice
Earlier this year, I bought a 2001 Celica GTS. I have decided the time has come to put a body kit on it. I live in New England, we get a ton of snow and stuff, I don't want this kit to get wrecked by our road conditions/weather. I just had a few questions before I go out and buy it up. Notice: I want Front bumper, rear bumper, and side skirts. (no spoiler, already have the 2003 GTS Spoiler)

1. Money is an issue, Whats a nice body kit that I can get at an affordable price?

2. Where should I get it?

3. How much should I be paying?

4. Should I get it online or at a local shop?

Help me out!

seems to me your best bet would be the wings west kit, its about 550. it is made out of urethane so it is good quality and very durable all it will do is add a front lip to your stock bumper and will give you the side skirts and rear valence (sp). as for a place to get it there are several online like www.planetperformance.com or the ecelica store may have it, but if that fails goto www.wingswest.com and see if they have a dealer near you.

I like the C-one kit or the RMM kit. Both are front and rear lips with side skirts.

Money being an issue could be a problem, your looking at $500 to $2000 for a kit, unpainted. Painting and install could be another $500 to $2000.

I would get just about any kit just don't drop your ride, lowering is what puts the kit in harms way. Check out the store right here, they have some great choices at great prices.
