<font color='#990000'>Alright, I'll be getting my car soon, and as for the basics of what every kid usually gets, what do you think I should put on my car first?

<font color='#990000'>I was thinking for the first few things:

Tint, Exhaust, System, Lowered(Maybe?), Rims

Which first though

<font color='#000000'>i'd do intake, strut bars, exhaust, rims + lower at the same time, and with all the extra money you have left over do the tint and stereo.</font>

<font color='#990000'>Intake is over rated

I'll get strut bars once I lower the vehicle..Then I can get ones that will work better once it's lowered.</font>

<font color='#000000'>yes but they're cheap.  you realize that if you don't have an intake you won't see much performance out of your exhaust..</font>

<font color='#000000'>yeah it sucks up a lot more air and if you get a bigger throttle you gain more hp</font>
<font color='#000000'>yup.  if you do exhaust without intake your backpressure is decreased.  you get nice sound, but hardly any power increase.</font>

<font color='#000000'>Upgrade your suspension, those things have too much body roll.  At least for my tastes.  We all know you're not going to have the fastest car in the world but make sure you can out corner everyone else, that's what celicas do best!</font>

First thing I noticed on my stock celica was that it needed suspension work, didn't corner well stock at all.  I'm thinking of taking out the coil overs and putting in the Eibach springs</font>

I just wanted to know if they existed because I've never seen them before.</font>

<font color='#000000'>yerp, i dunno about the 5th gens, but there were next to no aftermarket parts for the 6th gen.

i've never seen euros on a 5th gen before either, but i'm sure some fool out there has had them custom fabricated.</font>

<font color='#8D38C9'>Hey Frosty... I've been looking around but not too much luck.  I checked Altezza and APC (where I got mine) and it's funny that they are pretty much nonexistent!  They have them for 4th gen and 6th, but no 5th, maybe cuz it's a long light and probably harder to make?  I remember that they didn't have taillights for mine for a while even, that's what not good about having a new or not so popular car, you can't find any parts for it!  These are for a 95-97 Lexus LS400, but they look like they might fit: http://www.procarparts.com/store/displayde...=RCTL-9597LS400
They have a lot of other accesories for 5th gen celica here: http://www.andysautosport.com/toyota/90_93celica.html

Have you tried checking at a dealership?  They might have access to some stuff others don't.  Sorry I couldn't help more.
