Now, what have I done to it?

I changed out the factory radio for a Pioneer WMA/MP3 deck and have XM in the car
blacked out the tail-lights
gotten new rims in place of the hubbies
and added a spoiler
tinted the windows black.

Personalized Florida License plate,
Love 80s music/tv/movies!

I will post pictures hopefully in the next couple days.

Oh never mind about the picture I asked you. Didn't notice the "I will post pictures hopefully in the next couple days."

It's really no big deal, I want to wash it first so it looks good.

Looking pretty good right there. You could have blurred out the license plate number though, it unsafe to reveal it in the internet.

Point taken. Thank you

Try VERY hard to keep it looking good. I clean the engine everytime I wash it, and I also wax it every 6 months.

I am a HUGE Superman fan, so my mother in law bought me a Superman seat cover.

I have thought about getting possibly a new front bottom bumper below the grill so I can get fog lights. But, I was quoted like $600+ that's alot.

I would like to get the blueish european headlights, but do not know anything that is simliar to the HID lights found on Lexus type cars.

Name, is Streak.

4age swap? Forgive my ignorance? What is that?

4AGE is the 20 valve "Blacktop" engine found in '90s Sprinter Truenos and Corolla Levins in Japan. It could probably fit a USDM Corolla easily since it's all just FWD. In fact...if I actually drove the Corolla in my house and had the time + cash, I would get a Blacktop just for fun because these engines can pump out 250 hp.

Besides the exterior and audio mods, have you considered giving it some performance mods?

Well, it all depends on the wife. I have thought about getting duel exhaust installed. What other thingd would you recommend?

Thanks sage. I'm an 80s fan, so SLAYER rocks! :-)
I got a GREAT deal on the rims. They were ordered by a guy at the tire place I go to. He ended up not buying them, so they were really costing the store money keeping them around. I got all 4 put on and they disposed of my steel wheels for $300 flat.

I'm going to have to say...struts, coilovers, and maybe a cone air intake. That's about as far as I would go on a Corolla sedan.

We're in the middle of paying for an adoption, it may not be fiscally possible. Any idea (ballpark) how much that might cost? Everything thus far hasn't cost THAT much, but I don't know much about mods on actually performance, more just asthetics.
