help out the new guy
i have a red 00 gt. i'm getting my back three windows tinted with a gold fade, i figured since everybody else likes silver i would be unconventional, it'll be interesting to see how it turns out with the gold lettering on the back. Wuddya think would look the best for each of the exterior mods?:
1. amber, hyperwhite, or "crystal blue" fog lamps?
2. i'm pretty much decided on bronze or gold rims, but i have no clue where to start looking, what to look for as far as quality and price, which brand, etc. (tires also)
3. gold exhaust tip- where would i find one or is there even one made for the 2000 gt?
4. does the complete lighting package SPECIAL come with replacements for the daytime running lights? (i've been driving with my regular headlights on during the day because the stock running lights are so yellow they almost look orange, ugh)
5. what are the specs on the fog lamps i should buy?
6. i really like the way the TRD exhaust and Intake sound together, but what would be the best entry-level exhaust and Intake that isn't going to cost millions?

(i'm a new guy, gimme a break alright? thanks a lot guys!

I don't think anyone likes the silver tint either.

I do believe the special lighting package has everything you need...

and note the high beams are also your day time running lights.. drl's... happywink

gold faded tint on a red celica looks kinda weird... confused

1. go w/hyper white fogs
2. gold or bronze wheels + gold faded tint = too odd.
3. no gold muffler tip.
4. your DRL is 1/2 of your high beams.
5. do you have stock fogs? if you do, get something that is 55w
6. you can also go for ebay Intake for a tight buget. as for exhaust/muffler, you'll have spend to play.
good luck... thumbsup
