  1. celica GT vs GT86

    Me Grandad wer a miner an all, wokked down pit all his life he did. He never had a motor car, but did have one of those new fangled telephones installed in the 70's. ..and just to keep loosely on topic, when he retired, he was given a Japanese watch

  3. celica GT vs GT86

    This one is likely to be more than you like to spend, Neil, but you could always make an offer.. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Scion-FRS-Toyota-86-GT-86-1-34-scale-model-LAVA-Orange-metalic-/181271492652
  4. I'm back 👋🏼

    Be good to see you around again, Andy. I might even recognise you next time
  5. Did you bolt the Ford Escort spoiler on, Neil?. No, no...forget that, silly question
  6. It's an age thing, gt. When you get older, you'll realise why they're called.."spoilers".
  7. celica GT vs GT86

    Gen 7's (with 17" wheels), had Pirelli P Zero Assimetrico 205/45/17 88W.
  8. celica GT vs GT86

    With extra money coming in, my first question would be..do you have a mortgage?. If so, look to increase your monthly repayments, so it's paid off earlier. Boring, but sensible. As for the Celica versus GT86 question..the Gen 7 is the better looking car, and being FWD with a hatch, a better "all rounder".
  9. Coupes are all about fashion. New car buyers have them for the aesthetics above anything else. The Gen 7, when it was announced in 1999, was considered to be very well equipped. I would have have liked to have seen a reach adjustable steering wheel, but it should be remembered that even the base model has a respectable standard spec. ABS EBD Side impact airbags Rear discs Alarm Immobiliser Electric windows Electric mirrors Heated mirrors Air conditioning Remote Central/Double locking Sony CD/Cassette/Tuner A full list price of £16650 doesn't seem to be an extortionate figure for the list above..but how did it compare list price wise with a high spec. Gen 5 or 6?.
  10. Hi, & Apart from the snow plough/ironing board, you have some both tasteful and expensive modifications on your T Sport. Amit (aka AMS) may well be able to supply an undamaged pair of door cards, when you relocate the crossovers
  11. Nearest Celica Specialist To Newcastle

    Can you exactly describe the issue, John?..as someone on here may have had an identical problem.
  12. What came in the Post Today?

    Moi?...as if You only bend over where mods are concerned
  13. Happy 11 Anniversary Kev 16v!

  14. Centre cap covers

    You're not searching hard enough, Alistair. I believe it's Darren at "Locking Vinyl" you're referring to. I fitted a new set of OZ caps only last Friday, but I bought them on eBay for £10 delivered from Portugal. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271857469472?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=570693334246&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  15. Tyre size for 17x7.5 et37

    Yep, 215 width. My Summer rims are 7.5J, and I run 215/40 front, 215/45 rear.
  16. Thinking of selling the T sport, how much?

    It's there if you look.
  17. Not a.happy monkey

    I was trying to wash a dark blue Focus Zetec S while this stuff was coming down late yesterday afternoon, you couldn't tell I'd washed the roof when it dried.
  18. Kin 'ell!! He can't handle 140 brake!
  19. Nooo! There aren't all that many T Sport's around, even less if Danny gets his hands on one.
  20. Urgent Help Needed ASAP

    I'm surprised members are advising the undersized socket and hammer method, not when you can spend a measly £18 without risking damaging the rim, and then sell the lockers on as a complete set if you don't want them.
  21. Urgent Help Needed ASAP

    That's a long shot, but you never know. I take it you know the 24157SU is the type number, not the code number, should you ring McGard on Monday.
  22. As this car was first registered 31.03.03, I think it's highly unlikely to be a pre face lift. I agree that just in case it is the earlier spec., hold out for a face lift with all the improvements they came with.
  23. anyone know this car

    Couple of errors in the listing. You're probably aware the car isn't a T Sport, and the spoiler wasn't OE, so would be classed as a mod.
  24. Test drove a facelift 140 today

    V-TEC eh?, I wonder if Cravo will be all over this car like a rash, it is local to him too
