Few Questions:

I have a white GTS 2003 celica and I have so far added blue neons to the underneath and a system. I want to do more modification in the future...I was thinking of tinting the windows..whats a good tip?
I'd also like to add a toyota symbol in the rear glass. Do you think it would be too much or is their something better to put in place..?
Is it too hard to change out the custom stock interior lights for blue ones? How do I go about getting some? And can a female install these herself or reccommended no?
Rims are another question..I have now the stock rims..I'm going for a white and blue theme I don't liek the red on the rims! Go for new ones? Any personal selections?
Thanks -- Tiffany, NC

I've also been thinking about an exhaust, Intake, or Turbo? Whats the thought on that?

Whatever you do, please don't put anything like a logo on the glass.

just because your a girl dont mean you cant install yourself. the interior light ur referring to is the dome light right? you can get blue domelights at your local kragens (if you have those there). window tints would look nice except your going for blue and white so maybe a lighter tint. i love my Injen Short Ram Intake. makes the car sound meaner. exhaust is always good too. i recommend the TRD. thats the one i'm getting. Turbo is a little costly but if you have couple g's lying around that you can spend then i heard the sf Turbo is pretty good

no offense, but you should do some research first before you asking about Turbos and engine mods...just a thought.

Good buy though! GTS's pwn! is it a 6 speed??

I would expect installing a new dome light wouldn't be too hard. Just take off the casing (I'm not sure how of course, I've never checked it smile ) and replace the bulb.

If you're going for blue/white, you might look in to slightly blue-ish tint on the windows. If you get the right type, it might just look pretty good (maybe you can post a few pics of your car?).

And if your only problem with the rims is the red on them (I assume you mean the small red circle in the middle), I would just paint over it, make it blue.

Not sure on the window decal. It would depend on what it looked like, how big, and all that - your call, really.

As for mods, I would personally love to have a Turbo, but there is no way in hell I could afford one right now tongue
I'm very happy with my AEM Cold Air Intake (only problem is a Check Engine Light because the computer is detecting a hose that is no longer used, but Performance-wise, I love it. It also has a great sound - A psshk! when you stomp on the gas, a low rumble at the lower RPM's, then it gets quiet, and comes with a nice deep rumble around 5k RPM, then gets slightly quieter, then screams as soon as lift kicks in just past 6k.) I imagine an exhaust would make it even more of an experience (I'm looking at TRD or TSRM exhaust for my next mod, after MTECH lights).

I think I got all that right. tongue

Do you have pics of your car w/ the neons?

i think installing a Turbo would be a bitch on a gts, but if you have the money im all for it... dont add too much decals on the car because it doesnt make it look better because celicas are already sexy, and decals dont increase ur HP... Intake and exhaust is a good idea though

another honda kill story is always welcome

yes, keep it clean. no decals of any kind. don't take this the wrong way, but until you understand the Performance wise, don't even think about Turbo. your guy friends probably all have hondas, but toyotas are not easy/cheap to Turbo like hondas. just take it easey and improve the looks first, like height, wheels, kit, c/f Hood, the tint you're thinking about...since show is what you're looking for. good luck... thumbsup
