Welcome man. Good mods to start out with (and are cheap) are Honda S2000 antenna to replace stock. Making your own grill. painting calipers. Just look in the installs section they should be of a lot of help. Enjoy! wave

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it's not a clutchless manual. It's still an auto. Might want to be looking into getting a 6-speed.

if it's your first car, don't worry about gettin a 6 speed. not everybody gets a car in the first place as soon as they get their license. i bought my celica at 19 yrs. old with my own money. your lucky if you've got a nice celica at 17. search the website for anything you can think of because there's a ton of posts on modifications. everybody has their own opinion on what brand they like. imo i like what mods i have. you can check my profile for my mods. oh and being a newbie, people are gonna make comments. just don't take them personal. and whatever you do don't type with you caps on. that's one thing i got drilled over.

So are you looking for performance or looks? If you are going for performance, not much you can do except Intake/Exhaust since its an auto. You said you don't have a lot of money and is saving so I take it you won't be looking for turbo or any major mods. If you want to be able to beat people at races then I suggest you get nitrous. Otherwise your best bet is to go show. Some nice rims, dropped, bodykit. Just make it look nice. Not much you can do an auto and its basically pointless to go major mods with an auto because its harder to put the power to the ground.

lol wow i never knew how much automatics sucked...lol i never really learned how to drive a stick lol. its got these up and down buttons that shifts when you hit them. wasnt sure if it was manual or not. it is a nice celica only 20,000 miles on it and its a 2000 gts. i didnt know that it was bad to have a auto. i guess ill have to learn to drive a stick. i just hope it isnt hard. hmm maybe ill just hang around idk if i wanna do anything to this now. maybe i can save all the stock parts and just take them from one car to the other cause i think i may get a manual celica for my next car. if i was to get is sooner what would i be paying for one with low milage?
