TRD elegante lip
I really want this front lip. Does anyone know where I can get it but not have to pay so much money for it. I'm planning on just adding this front lip and keeping the stock sides and rear. I like the way this celica looks:

I know a bunch of you guys are gonna tell me to just get a wings west front lip but i compared the 2 and the wings west lip flares out too much on the sides. So it wouldnt look that great with stock sides.

TRD elegante lip is far too expensive for just a lip... if you want this look wings west is ur best bet... the difference between the to isnt that noticable.

if you don't want to spend a lot of money and don't want WW, then you're not getting it. if you want something similar, but not totally the same, you can get a splitter.

the lip still dips a little lower than the sideskirts so I'd probably get the whole kit - otherwise it would look "off"

i still can't tell what is wings west or what is TRD just by looking at them. the differences are so small i don't bother with it.

the only reason to get the TRD lip is if you just want a TRD part. the quality & looks are just like wings west..the only big difference is price.

i still say they look the same grin and that "LOT" is only about an inch or so.

but maybe that's just me. but theres no way i'd pay a couple extra hundred to have something that everyone is going to think is wings west anyway.

wow there is a hair difference. Deff not a 300 hair difference wink It is in no way cost effective. Talk to KARACING he can get it for oyu. but you wil be spending a small fortune. None remade it, and none over here has it for sale. sorry buddy.

if you have to study pictures so closely to tell the difference, why not just get the wings west? its so much cheaper and you know fitment will be perfect.
