HELP! What to do first with Celica gts
Hey guys
I'm a proud owner of 6th Gen since October 2014 and I'm so happy with the car. Thanks to you guys I found the car fits me perfectly!!

So theres a few things I want to do to it - body kit, exhaust, Intake, wheels 18", lowering springs by 1.2" and new suspension.

So my question is which do I do first!!??
Body kit - veil side
Exhaust - Magna flow
CAI - Injen RD or AEM
Shocks - KYB AGX
Springs - Eibach 1.2" lowering springs

I personally want the body kit first for appearance but I'm worried the front bumper may scrape due to stock 16" wheels (this would be at stock height)
Then I planned to get exhaust and CAI, followed by wheels because by then I would need new tyres smile. And then springs and suspension.

Am I going this the right way or should I get wheels first and then the body kit?

Thanks! That clears up the steps taken for performance. How about if I plan to get a body kit first! And the wheel size issue (scraping)

Choose the body kit you want, after researching what others have said about it. They may tell you that 17" wheels with a tire thickness of 45 are just fine, or that 19" with low profile tires would be better.

Also decide whether you want a car with excellent performance, or a car that looks like a show-room queen.

At the end of the day, its best to create the car that you want. If you follow everyone else, you may end up with something just like everyone else has.

Do a lot of reading on the tech of how things work. Build for yourself.
