Default Any advice on low priced modifications and where to buy them?

I am looking to spruce up my 99' ES300 with some custom parts. Also, my bumper has some spiderweb shaped cracking going on and I was wondering how I can get this fixed and how much it would cost. (I know I keep talking about pricing but I am a penny pincher)

You've got one of the models that doesn't really have much available in the way of mods. K& N air filter and light bulb changes could be considered affordable. I imagine that you've got some national chain body/paint shops around for that bumper. Personally, I get the most satisfaction out of having a clean, detailed car. That's great for a penny pincher because you can do a $150 detail ten times over for $50 worth of product.

Grab a chrome license frame or two, tire shine, window tint... all inexpensive.

Thank you very much guys! I just washed my car this last weekend and polished it and it looks beautiful

Oh yeah, replacement LEDs for yellowish parking and license lights are easy and cheap and help modernize your car. Rear license lighting actually makes a surprising difference in the way your car looks at night.
