First things first (in my opinion)
1-Wheels and Tires
2-Springs
3-Exhaust
4-CAI/ Short Ram Intake

Theirs so much to do? What ya really lookin toward too? Exterior/ICE/Suspension/Interior/Motor? My first mod were Clear Corners!!!! Very affordable! I did my lighting first. ahha Then bought indiglo gauges.

Then if you want to do something major I say start big! And work your way to the little things in the end. Like a nice set of awesome rims. Then save up your funds and get a full body kit. Then top it off with an awesome paint job to throw it off. Then work your way toward the inside. Example Seat trimming or just get bucket seats and whenever you're ready blow out on a full blown interior scheme setup whatever you desire. Then a complete sound system or some type of in car entertainment.

Then when your ready to get fixer tickets lower that mug get a full suspension setup and work on the basics of the motor. Cold Air Intake, Header, Exhaust. Etc... Unless you plan on F/I Turbo, Supercharger, N.O.S.

Then accent rest with the little things. The rest will all fall into place Like the shift knob, pedals, floor mats, little bolts screws, graphics, painted accented pieces, etc.

Wherever you start your first mod will always be the best mod if it turns out your way! heeh and that'll influence you on modding more & more! Remember modding a car should be fun and never thought of I'm done. You can never complete a car theirs just so many different things you can do and so many different ways to do it!

there is a lot to do...I think it's more of a personal preference on where to start. I started on everything at once since I had the money...but like everything was installed at different times and everything is still not installed.

And oh this should be in Custom Mods.

since you have the AP, i would suggest the first thing you should do is to drop the car about 1.5"-2.0"

I heard that Celi's with more than 1.5" drop ride terrible even with TRD/Eibach springs...any opinions..This was from a tech at Toyota...Ill be doing this to my baby next...

First thing I did was change out all the lights (it makes the car look sooooo much better, without that nasty orange during the day and at night it looks like a high class car HID white commin out of dem lights...(Clear Corners, driving bulbs, dome light, blinkers, reverse, fogs)

2nd I did some decals...Nothing too extreme, just the team name upfront and then I represented TRD on my back window and two smaller versions on the sides (it makes the car look even more aggressive trust me) But DONT DONT go overboard, you will just kill your look

3nd I did was DEFF the sound system...Can have a ride lookin all pimp without tunes...

4th was muffler...your inside may sound good but what about when you pull off...Adds torque and some HP gain

5th was all small thing like the indiglo dash, footwell neons, trunk neon and the PSONE mod... I also threw my badges from the rear on my center piece on the big flap door...It lloks sweet...

Like I said, next up, deff rims and tires and a drop kit...

Then I will be on my last frontier ...a bodykit..Yummmyyyyy thumbsup
