Opinions?
which would look better:

red piping or polished piping (on the turbo pipes), with red hoses,and Injen engine covers. sand should i get CarbonFiber plastics or paint red

the car is silver, and will have a carbon fiber, Hood, and wing, as well as many other small things in carbon fiber.

i like both setups i just can't choose, pleas help

well if the majority of your mods deal with Carbon Fiber then I'd say Carbon Fiber. I used to like Carbon Fiber but am leaning more towards red now. Besides, I think it might be kinda cool to ave the Carbon Fiber Hood and the Carbon Fiber engine.

^^ thats what i was thinking, but red would stick out more, and i also think i will get polished piping and not red

polished will go well with the polished engine cover and red hoses
by the way when i say plastics i mean the front piece, fuse cover, and relay cover, the side cover won't fit with a turbo as far as i know.

yeah carbon fiber is expensive.

so you think i sould go with the pic on the right or the one on the left
both will have K&N filter, if i have Carbon Fiber plastics i will get the new K&N filters with Carbon Fiber caps, i have red plastics then i will get the K&N inerted top fileter with a red cap

Don't know if you posted on this before but what's this I hear about a turbo? Is it XS, did you buy it yet, when are you installing it? laughsilly goodjob cheers

I'm planning on buying one this summer. Just curious as to your experience with everything. wave

i would hold off on buying the c/f engine covers or painting untill you actually have the turbo...sometimes they have to cut the covers or remove them completely.

Carbon Fiber and polish. It will look like a bullet inside and out. I don't like red.

i am getting the turbo first

but not until this summer also, my car will remain stock until i graduate(my parents won't let me mod till then)

by that time i should have enough $ to get a trubo, bodykit, vis invader Hood, wing, and other smaller things, mabey vertical doors

it prob. won't be the XS kit though, i really like the da sports kit, i just hope it has good hp ratings.

there should be many more options by then too so we will see

i have been doing a ton of research on celicas ever since i got mine and i have learned a lot about them and a lot from this site.

it's my expirience that if you go with a color scheme under the engine you might want something on the extierior to match i.e graphix,eyebow you know something to make it stand out.otherwise the the car will look left out of the loop.do you understand what i mean.what i'm saying is if you leave the car siver than you should have your engine pieces siver.or if you go with the carbon fiber Hood go with the carbon fiber engine pieces

but that's just my opinion! happywink happywink


you can't turn a hoe in to a house wife ....so don't even try

here are all of the exterior mods i want to do(well most of them that have to do with coloer anyways)

car will be silver, i will have Carbon Fiber Hood, wing, Mirrors, trunk handle, muffler, and tails, i will have red brake calipers, red under glow, other red lights, and a lot of red on the interior.

it seems i have decided to have the Injen polished engine covers, polished turbo piping, carbon fiber plastics, red hose, Carbon Fiber Air Filter top, and red neons(will make polished item look red at night)

at least thats most of it
