If you've got the money for a body kit, then I say start with a Cold Air Intake, new exhaust, and new exhaust headers. That way, when you do make your car look cooler (because c'mon, it's already cool enough) you'll have some power to match the sytling.

LOL, yea, those graphics look terrible bro...Please don't get clear tails either, just red them out.

Get some nice gunmetal rims with a polished lip, a nice drop, then go for a kit...Don't forget the tint either wink

Make a checklist of stuff you have and stuff you want. I have a Word doc of stuff I still need. Get cheap stuff first for cosmetics, like Clear Corners, S2k antenna, painting calipers, change color console lights and aftermarket dashboard gauge displays etc. Definitely need a bodykit. Stay away from drag wings! Performance like Cold Air Induction Intake, exhaust system (full catback, imo), new headers, grounding kit (a must), new rims, front strut bar, sway bars. Get some springs or coil overs and lower it two inches or so.

Those rims are rice and so are the graphics. Clean look is much better. DOn't want ppl accusing you of being a F&F wannabe. rofl

ok

the graphics= puke rice and that fact that you payed $500 for them is 10x worse

the rims= puke rice never put chrome on your celica

the tailights= puke rice once again no chrome

the wing= puke rice are you going to be flying anytime soon?

the springs= puke rice go with a reliable product name

get my point.

if you want grapichs for the veilside ones...something simple and clean

if you want rims go with gunmetal/black with a polished lip or anything besides chrome, green, red, blue etc etc

if you want tails, red the stock ones out or get tycs(not chrome) red or black

if you want a wing get a TRD/Action Package wing

if you want springs get eibach or tanabe

As for a body kit, if you want a full one get Kam or Veilside. If you want just a lip Wings West or JP. You will be looking at about $800-$1000 for the Kam and Veilside kits alone, of course thats the price for an authentic one, you can find a cheaper Fiberglass replica. The Wings West and JP kits are about $600. Painting these kits will probably run $300-$500

This is all in hope that you will not buy any of that stuff for your car and disgrace the celica name. Your car has potential to be really nice looking, you just have to stay away from all that ricer bullshit

Ok so from what we have learned is that you could have gotten your graphics for way less and that everything on your car and everything that you want to get for your car sucks. But dont let this get you down. We all make mistakes. Just learn from them and the people on this site.

If you have the money, I would ditch the rims for some new ones and a small drop. That way no one can tell that you only have a GT...(BTW don't mean to offend anybody with some GT's...by saving money on getting the GT yours is probably modded to spank my GTS cry) But do that and then cat-back exhaust...and then a lip kit...the wings west and JP both look nice...and only lower the body 1-2" so you don't sacrifice drivability if your roads are less than perfect. Red-out tails would probably look killer and you can do it for ~$5 if you use the candy apple paint technique. That's just my opinion...more geared for show than go...but the beauty of it is...whatever you decide to do represents you and who you are...so if anyone doesnt like it but YOU DO...then f* em

The very first thing you should do is take those graphics off. If im not mistaken you could just take a hair dryer and heat that up and it should peel off. wheels are a must. And i don't see a problem with chrome, just not feeling the ones you chose but its your car. After that get some lowering springs. Not goldline. TRD, Eibach, Tanabe or Tein springs are good. But you need an S2000 antenna buddy. $15-20 at any Honda Dealer. As for a spoiler, whats wrong with the stock? I like the stock spoiler or the TRD. That big wing you want will just get you laughed at and you don't want that. Clear tail lights are just gay. just red them out. Takes like 1 hour and only cost $10.

I don't like those ADR rims at all...sorry...i saw them on a celica and they just didn't fit...the celica looks fast...and should have sporty rims to fit the personality...to me those are a little too umm...shall we say urban?..for the celica anyway. If you want ADR i would go with the cyphers or the visions...or something similar...both of those i think look sweet in gunmetal or bronze thumbsup

get the TRD spoiler. that looks the best on the celica i think. as for your exhaust, man, that needs to be fixed real quick. not to rag on your car but i could stand on that thing and clean the back window. but you seem to be getting started on the right track. good luck with it.

For a spoiler...well i think TRD pretty much hit the nail on the head. I love the styling; similar to the evo, STi spoiler. The one you posted is pretty close...but not quite. There are pretty many TRD style spoilers on ebay for not a lot of loot...as long as you buy from someone with good feedback. The RMM, kaminari, and WW wings are all very similar...and are the style i think flows best with the celica

Oh and check out my forum with pretty much the same topic as yours. I just got my celica and am trying to decide what to do with mine...so we're in the same boat cool
