Help! Asking for opinions on how to make my Celica cool(er)!

Hey everyone! Basically the deal is i'm 17...just bought a 2000 liquid silver celica GTS 6 speed...and within a week from buying it i purchased and installed the TRD exhaust and tinted taillights. I am planning on maybe 2,000 in mods, probably lip kit, wing, rims, Intake, Hood...? I'm not aiming for much more Performance which i don't need and frankly wouldn't use...just want to keep it clean and unique. I would GREATLY appreciate any and all opinions!!!

b4 i became a memeber of this website i knew almost nothing about cars... if i didnt become one i would of had no idea what the best mods are for our car and things that give the best gains, lightest in weight, etc... some people need options when they cant think of any at that time to give them ideas... WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT??? answer that for me

Oh and thanks guys for the opinions...and the taillights are nice...they shine pretty bright so i don't think i'll have any problems with the law...and from farther away or in dimmer light they look black...right up close in the daylight they look like this wine color.. and if anyone is interested in them...go to tintedtaillights.com and email micah and tell him that tim sent you!

cuz if they go and do what they think looks good and goes online and shows us the pictures - people will call out RICE on some mods.

i paid $80 for mine. In my opinion taillights are all too expensive for just plastic...but...it was cheaper than most euro's...and i'm planning to red-out my stockers and see what i can pull for 'em

Also what is a good drop kit? I'm planning on a lip kit which will lower it 1-1.5"...and i have plenty of back roads and really sh*tty ones at that...and i don't want to get a new lip kit and nick it up the first day i get it...also need to be able to make speed bumps...any suggestions?

oh and the $80 for my tails was off of ebay auction...i think he asks $120 retail and includes nationwide shipping...but i thought 120 was a little steep...but also were the first pair of tinted tail lights i found for sale anywhere...

body kit, rims, lowering kit. I dont really like the looks of gunmetal rims. I also have a silver gts. It has the TRD body kit and i plan on getting rims and suspension next. Im going to get silver rims even though some peoples say you should contrast your rims. Silver rims look best in my opinion. Im planning on enkie cdr9 rims. keep pics posted thumbsup

00celica00GT...I don't know of any REALLY good body shops unfortunately. Especially up my way...half the cars up here are jeeps, trucks, hickmobiles and the like. I go to JP Goetz automotive in Pennsburg for most of my needs...it's a small shop but they're nice...and do a nice paintjob...but I don't know if they are experienced with body kits or especially painting Urethane confused I'm not going to recommend you to them because i'm not sure of their capabilities. There's no shop or retailer geared towards aftermarket products for imports that i have seen in my travels around here...how about you?

I'm 17 and I got my car in march.

First thing I did was get the windows tinted with 15% tint, and then I got the Honda S2000 Antenna, And then I got 17" Motegi MR7 rims, and the my Alpine IVA-D300 dvd player.

If I were you Id go round and look at all these choices given above and then some. Dont put stuff on ur car cause sombody else likes it. Your car is suppose to reflect YOU. You make it the way you think it looks good. Thats why there are choices in life. To make stuff UNIQUE.

I'm thinking it would be best to get a body kit and drop it with some TRD springs...possibly get around to the rims a little later, as the stock GTS aren't that bad...plus i got brand new Toyos on them and it would be a shame to go to waste.
-unless- someone wants or knows someone who is interested in 5 GTS rims, 4 of which with hardly used Toyo's?
-anyone know if there is a vizage JP body kit for less than $580?

visit www.vizages.com

are you talking about the F1 kit? or the lip kit? I personallly like the lip kit. F1 is kinda funky looking to me. I am thinking about the lip kit or carcept lip kit for myself.

haha lip kit for sure...F1 is pretty damn quirky...and honestly wouldn't even consider it unless i was making enough power to justify painting pink bunnies all over it!

I went to vizages and clicked on some of the closer retailers around here...the cheapest was 580+ shipping...though some sites were under construction.
