To me, it's the 2nd best exterior mod I'll ever do, after my facelift bumper upgrade.


Word, they are WORLDS better than OEM, give the celica a whole new look. Many people don't know what they are looking at.

Since I did my front end, with the combo of loud, tails, spoiler, and front end. 9/10 people that comment on my car ask if its a supra, lol and they are all SO dissapointed when I say no.

I'm gonna be going on a mods lent for a little while since I'm in college and no job yet. If I get great deals then of course, I'll get stuff tongue.gif but mostly, I'm gonna focus on school for a while.

Next big mods will be coilovers (NEEEEED EM), rear SSIII splitters(maybe front as well, still haven't decided if I like the Euros better), and 404 or TRD skirts! Gotta have me a sexy shell for a BEAMS wink.gif

JDM rear lights are the best exterior mod here in the UK as well (along with projectors, but they are just stupidly expensive), much better looking that the original ones

Well if anything Brake pads upgrade and change brake fluid first. At least thats my plan, personally im not that confident late braking and tailing other cars at times. Feel that its spongey but ive driven alot more worse cars with ****ty brake systems.

I haven't the slightest clue. I took it to a brake shop since I couldn't do it myself because of lack of working area (me living on campus and all) all I did was made sure they put ceramic pads on her.

those tails look great, but i have always wondered, do cops bother about the car not having the rear sidemarker anymore??

jdm tails really update the look of our cars, but i am always fearful about that because the police here will find any reason to pull people over.

No, it looks like a hooker put her acid vag on your hood. Acid vag = bigger problem than a few dings.

samir, I was wondering the same thing. I mean, no one on here with JDM tails has ever posted "Gawwww just got pulled over for not having that damn sidemarker!" topic before, so I think as long as we don't drive like a bat out of hell, cops won't mind.
