    nice car. its a good car. reliable and great for everyday driving, but boring enough to where you don't want to do mod it. haha. I've always wanted an avalon as a comfortable car to drive.

    Plastic welding at least looks clean unlike a home depot garage lip.

    hahahahhahahahha after you finish plastic welding the front bumper, the next thing you should do is paint your valve cover RED and cross out the VVT-i and with a black marker write down TRD beside it. :thumb:

    LOL thanks guys, it's the 3.5 V6. Nice and smooth.

    As for mods I plan on painting the wheels green, then adding the very popular Home Depot Lip Kit. Then maybe a stick on carbon fiber dash kit over a red painted dash. I'm going to do the door panels in a yellow suede, but I'm going to do a real poor job at it. Maybe then I'll set it off with some underbody neons and slap a Shocker sticker on the trunk.






    Actually, I'm just going to tint the windows. :D

    Nice car. Leave it stock or just do some minor mods to it. I do like the OEM lip kit and maybe some wheels and the tints you were talking about, that's about it.

    The only engine that comes in the Avalon is the 3.5 V6

    The only thing that should be done to this car is basic maintainance. Stock is the best way to go for this car.
