well if you want you get the whole bodykit for it. the xenons DO NOT buy the hid kit which will make that good car look cheap. get the gunuine xenons for it. preferably the skoda/mondeo...
18" will definitely make it look hot but then you gotta go really low on the profile aorund 35-40. will this be ok for you?

i think that car looks fine as it is....but some alloys never hurt anyone...
dont know much about the xenons though. others will fill you in on that one.

Hi, i have a bodyklit for the camry with me, similar to the design in the pic, except that the rear is a complete single piece and the sides do not have that crest towards the back, front is almost the same as well... this car in the pic is lowered, the actual bodykit is not as low as that, infact its at the same ground clearance as the car, just a longer overhang. i could paint it and send that across to you, fitting is just half an hours job. Xenon headlight conversions and 17inch rims & tires are also available for the camry right away. 18's can be imported on order. PM me for more details.

Regards,
Arush

hey vishnu that's a very nice car you've bought there..well for now i can tell you that it's better if you don't invest on the body kit..if possible get 17" alloys with the toyo tyres or good year eagle f1's and run then with a 35-40 profile...trust me that will make the car look superb...well other mods that you can do is..get the hid unit with the xenon bulbs..well i can arrange for the 8000kw bulbs...they r the top of the line even better than the one's with the skoda and the Bmw..well you can also add a K&N box replacement filter to that...iridium tipped spark plugs and high performance 8mm ignition wires...after all this a good tuning job will do the trick for you...if you do need any other info..feel free to pm me..cheers...!!

Hey dragger, dont u think 35-40 profile tires would be wayy too low on 17s for a camry? (unless theyre like 255mms!) the profile wouldnt be really a criteria to chose tires though. i feel he would need atleast a 235/45/R17 to maintain the overall diameter. Incase he does need to go in for those very low pofile looks he'd have to go in for 19s for a 35 profile, coz anything bigger than 235 on 17s to get that aspect ratio would scrape the inners.

Btw i would definitely vote for the xenons, i just put a 7000k pure white xenon kit on my skoda ambiente and its looking hotter than an L&K!

Autopsyche, that is one hell of a looker! Its actually the first time I have ever seen a Camry with a body kit. Do you custom make the kits yourself from pictures like these?

The bodykit of the camry and the new honda accord that i have (Mugen design) have been imported from japan itself. Im not building these here because these cars deserve to have the real thing not local lookalikes in poor finish quality, you know how he locally manufactured skirtings are.. these are hundred times better in terms of quality

don't u think 18" would kill the ride quality? i think toyota gives 17" with one of their higher-end model camry's as standard.. they should be great and not destroy your ride quality completely..
