So here's my still pretty much stock st185, except the rims, they are from st20x . Im planning to get some 17" rims, coilovers, bucket seats, cse bumper etc.
But first i need to get some money! :oops:

btw. the car is a great traveller it has found it's way from usa to germany, to sweden and now to finland! :D

Anyway here's the pics.

Looks good. At which point did they put the power folding mirrors, clear corners, and the fenders with blinkers on it?

I really don't know. the history of this car is a bit of mystery to me. i have no information of it before it was imported to germany, and the information i have is quite minimal.

Well atm im satisfied with the stock amount of power(Don't even have chance to get drivers license before august, im 17yrs old atm.), so im not sure about the engine tuning yet. But ill get stiffer suspension as i said, remove the spoiler, buy some CSE frontbumper and maybe a hood allso, 17" rims, spacers, bucket seats, some aftermarket steeringwheel and maybe rollcages and im trying to remove weight at the same time. So that's for the start.

Well, just so you know, those 6th gen Celica wheels are a half inch wider than stock all Trac wheels or wheels from any other generation even 7th gen. 8)
Currently All Trac-less....

Tested 18" TAG rims today, he asked 1300 € for the whole set, but i think 18" is too much for st185, plus those rims are maybe a bit too "Bling"...

Here's one pic of them. Click

Why do you have the 90-91 center tail-light piece?

Looks good other than that, what are the specs on your new wheels?

Thanks,
I have no idea on the first question. :D
But im planning to remove the whole center light piece anyway, like in the TTE gt-four they had.

Oh sry, forgot to mention the wheel specs.
The wheels are Tecnomagnesio TM Racing, 17x7 ET37 with Kumho Ecsta supra tyres 215/40/17.
