Hey everyone.

Well I finally did it..sold the 95 Civic (can't believe they gave me a thing for it)...which brings me here!

Me-I'm Laurie from Maryland
Mines-2004 Toyota Camry SE
Mods-Ok, this is why I am here I know NOTHING, and believe me when I say nada about cars. I need to learn. I know that I want rims and tints for starters. I have so many questions so hopefully I won't embarass myself too much. Can't wait to learn from you all and see what I can do with my new car.

No pics yet. I drove it off the lot and when I got home noticed there was a ding in the passenger door and a dent in the back. Don't even ask. Brand new car. I took it in to have them put leather in it and repair those problems and it's been at the shop for a week :( Hope to have it back tomorrow and then I'll have some pics.

$200 for 20% tints at the tint shoppe
$220 for 20% tints at quality tire, but they have a 10% coupon on there website ( http://qualitytire.com/onelinecoupons.htm )
$300 bucks for 20% reflective tints at la tint shop


those r the only rates i kno, just becuase those r the only prices i checked up on.

i THINK its 180 bucks the tint shoppe for normal 35% tints, but i dunno

Yeah I had to get a little LOUD at the dealership the other day. It wasn't pretty. Don't think I didn't let him have it...won't buy another car from them. I finally found the car I wanted, bought it, got the leather seats done and damn...had to turn it back over to the shop :p If it's not ready when I go buy tomorrow..it's gonna get ugly...er

Welcome to TN! Hope you enjoy your stay:)

The people on here have an amazing amount of knowledge. So you will have no problem getting an answer to any of your questions.

If you need information on performance related issues, try the stickies in th "Hardcore Tech" section. There is a lot of great information in those. And they are a great place to start:)

Nice to have you on. And welcome to the Camry family.

I wouldn't go anywhere that refers to the as "Dubs". Dubs are for SUVs. They wouldn't look right on a car. I would check out a Discount Tire Co. They have a big selection. If there isn't one in your area, try their website. discounttire.com. Either that or I have heard good things about Tirerack.com. But dubs doesn't sound like it would be good. And truck tires won't fit on a Camry. I know. I wanted some American Racing rims, but they only had ones made for trucks:(
