Paint them, painted callipers look great..And that red, ehh look nice, but maybe black, and stencil Scion in it...Well, it all depeends, its a preety small car, so I doub the callipers are that big...But it looks hot, if you do all black, and white "scion" this is ugly, but this is what I mean..

Well in that case, leave the calipers... The red is a kind of awesome but one of those tiny, just cool features that set the car off.

A tight, cheap upgrade is replacing all the interior lights with blue LED's (my brother did that in his black SI). There is that, and things like dash mats, gear shift knob replacments, steering wheel covers, new speaker grils, exaust tip etc.

Interior lights.

Not the Xenon or LED conversion headlgiths, or LED tail lights. Too much.

But Interiour is EASY and CHEAP. Lol door lights, dome lights and thats really it unless you do the spedometer (and that area) lighting and backface.

Why would you want more lights on your car? :P Aren't they illegal?

don't leave out that maybe putting in some very thin neon rope lighting around the doors looks mega live.

If you do paint the brake calipers, use engine spray paint. It's just a rule of thumb that I use. It doesn't get as hot as the engine would, but still, it gets warm regardless and you want to protect that finish. AUtozone, Pep Boys, Kragen, etc. all cary these Dupont spray paint that are specially designed for high temps. In different colors too. They don't cost that much either.

I guess its all upon the car, I know someone who has a jetta, and he want to do all blue, and his is red/blue, and it would cost him 200..Someone on maxima.org, does it also, it costs abotu 260 for the leds in the car..They have to take the head unit out, put new leds in, remove the doorpanel buttons, and put new leds in, its a hard thing to do..But I guess since its a tC, it cant be that hard, not like there is a complicated head unit or something...I guess the better the car, the more it cost..The orange in a max is so gay lookin, looks alright at night, btu still blue would look tight...Yeah to do a whole led swap in there, cost about 200...Not sure how much a tc would be..
