  4. Im not sure they would have any advantage being longer. Normally uprated drop links are much thicker. You can tell the difference with uprated thicker drop links, car feels a little tighter on the road, I had IPD ones on my Volvo T5 and you could tell a small improvement over stock links definitely. If you combine with decent tyres, uprated shocks, lower stiffer springs, and decent bushings all round it all adds up.

    Bonnet Pins

    i would try and keep the catch mechanism if i was doing it, i dont really like the look of the aero catches and you ruin the bonnet as it will now have holes in it. Can you not make up some different brackets and mount it differently, there is quite a bit of room in the front if you custom mount things. I have custom mounted a different rad for my charge cooler and gearbox oil cooler and it all fitted in fine, but i have binned the aircon. i still have loads of space for another oil cooler if i wanted.

    Where does the extra oil go?

    This above, plus you can never get all the oil out as there is a film of oil over loads of the internal engine parts which stays. And the oil pump holds some.
  9. I drove my old celica for a couple of days without the drop links as i cut the old ones off and the new ones that arrived in the post were the wrong ones, and i needed to use the car. It was fine and i just drove normally, you can tell on some corners that it doesnt feel as good as normal. Just dont go mad, it wil be fine!
  10. I would guess £15k plus the car? / Cant really compare Gen7 to older Gens as Gen7's are not old yet. My Gen5 car is nearly 23 years old, i dont think many Gen7's will make 23 years? You dont get death rattle on proper Celicas
  11. My CS cost £3500 10 years ago. In that time I have spent about £11000 on it including a new engine, gearbox repair, 2 clutches, 2 exhausts, new body panels, turbo, power steering pump, new suspension, brake master, new rads, and lots of other things....... It is still in pieces at the moment and been off the road for 3 years now. Got to get it finished one of these days....... I would be lucky to get my £3500 back on it, but in the future it will be like the TA/RA Celicas and should go up in value. I don't care how much I spent on it as I just like the car and don't intend to sell it.
