Exclamation My new ride - Toyota MR2

Hey guyz today i have bought a toyota mr2 twin turbo for myself and its red in colour...Now iam planning to spend around a lakh or nearby to make it look awesome. What i have in mind is to repaint the total car to skoda blood red and black from between (Hood, lights, boot, and top) and rest red, then get 17' chrome alloys with low profile tyres, underbody neons, xenon lights, side and front-rear skirts.

This is what i have thought to do, Can u suggest something more with some pics, but keep my budget in mind...Cheers to all

Congrats...how about some pics of the car ?
For the mentioned mods i think Autopsyche is the best option.

congratulations carlover , the MR2 is a lovely car ..infact when i was a kid i used to have a mr2 sticker on my almirah
where are the pics bro? just make sure that the GC is enough to cover the breakers when u add low profiles and skirts .

I think for all that you want to do, your budget is on the lower side. A good set of 17" Wheels & Tyres is alone going to eat up a sizeable chunk of it.

Congrats on the buy, how old is the car and what price you got it, would be nice to see as is pics of it.

Regarding the mods, here is my rough guess work of the cost

17' chrome alloys with low profile tyres,: 40K or more
underbody neons: 5K-10K depending on which brand
xenon lights: 15K upwards
side and front-rear skirts: 20K or more
painting: 10K-15K

I think your budget may just suffice or you need to add a few grand more!

Thanks everybody, well i will post the pics tomorrow, but i need some pics for getting an idea what i can do with this car in this kinda budget and i allready have a person for alloys and skirts, paint and ICE but what extra can i do..

Look according to me right now i have to spend something like
paint and mech - 70000
alloys - 30000
neons - 7500
xenons - 6500
Skirtings - 8000

Now after this what all can i do to make it look more hot?

Have these designs which iam thinking about, you people suggest more..

What about tyres? Eagles are around 6K each. Michelin pps are 10-11 K and PS2s are 14K each!

Nice Car , it does not come with a twin turbo - only a 3SGTE Single turbo inline 4 with around 220 bhp.

It is a classic shape - very clean lines, almost looks like a mini Ferrari 348.

I would suggest you go in for only a set of Nice wheels and leave the look alone and not rice it up with all those silly addons
