Cheap Mods
I really want to work on my 02 celica and improve but i dont have much money! What are some cheap mods that dont cost more then 50 dollars? I have already painted the dash trim so is there anything else.

get an ebay CAI, that will help you a lil, plus make car sound better. after you get it, just go buy a new k&n filter.

S2000 antenna, Indiglo gauges, redout taillights, Clear Corners, new shift knob, new pedals, Blue bat vinyls, rear fill in stickers, that should get you started... thumbsup

Get an S2K antenna and use the leftover money over at BlueBat's website. You can get the redded out tails overlay and maybe some other ones.

i thought the 02 celica stock had the diff tail lights?? HID's aren't hard to install but not easy and by no means cheap a kit will run 300-400 dollars. Dont buy the diff shif knobs and pedals because they are cheap, there just crap (esp: plastic ones). if you have a gts it already comes with decent petals and a leather shif knob. if its not power antenna def get a s2000 one. honda sells them for $20 and it makes your car look 100xs better. painting your brakes is another cheap and easy mod that makes your car look way better. and dont buy pos Intakes from ebay they are shit. even if it takes longer and cost more it is always better to buy quality products. you will thank me later.

The very first mod I did was the Power antenna. It is too cool for discription. here is the Install link.

Take your time (be sure to use the factory gromett, not the one that comes with the antenna, on the top side)

The cheapest mod?

Well, one of the most noticable & cheapest mod has always been painting the calipers.

How much? Maybe 20 bucks at most. WalMart or any auto store w/ the Dupli-Color caliper paint kit... a little time & patience... and you can have one of the easiest mods that'll also get some attention.
