Hi Want all your opinions on my veilside Celica, what you think?

Hi guys i am new to this site. I am going to get my first car which is a 2 year old celica. I have loved this car since i first saw it. Well now i am old enough to drive and i am getting it soon. What do you think of my first project?
Please give me your opinions!

First i want to fit a body kit and as i am a new driver i am not really looking for any engine mods yet as the insurance will kill me and so i am just looking for exterior and interior mods.

Well i want to get the kit in the link below. (KIT AT THE BOTTOM) but i want to get just the rear bumper from the blue celica. I also want to get those rims and the GT wing (FRP) in the picture.

What do you think of this? I am looking into the lambo doors aswell.

What do you guys think? Please give me your opinions as i want to learn a lot from this site thanks

Welcome Josh wave

Just FYI, don't let insurance stop you from doing engine mods. There isn't any kind of extra charge for having performance aftermarket parts on your car. thumbsup

Sorry that was stupid of me i forgot to put it in. Here it is:

http://www.carexcess.com/bodykits/celica00.html

And I live in London England and the rubbish thing about living here is that insurance can really kill. As i am 17 and i am getting a celica my insurance is $5100 and here in the UK if you do any engine mods or any mods at all to the car or any car you have to pay a lot of extra insurance

Thanks for the replies

Celica racer i am also going to get a massive exhaust Cold Air Intake, They will be first.

My cousin has a 92 civic. And i have watched and helped him over the years do it up and we went to an official drag race at this place just outside london and we did the quater mile in 11 seconds, and he doesn't run nitros, he will help me with the celica. And i will just the basic celica 1.8 VVT-i i won't get the sport because that will double the insurance costs

What i want to do is get the body kit and put the celica on 18's. I think this is better before i lower it because the larger wheels will make the car a little higher. I wanted to completly pancake the car but here in the UK we have large speed bumps and so i can't really lower it to much. How much have you guys lowered yours?
