    Celica for sale

    Young padawan..you are forgiven I actually think it's worth 10 hundred.

    Gen6 and gen7 wheel nuts.

    With one exception, all the rims fitted to the Gen 7 in the UK (16" or 17") were manufactured by Fondmetal, and need collared nuts. The rims you've just shown, ARE that exception. They were made by Team Dynamics, fitted to some pre face lift cars as an extra cost option, and I think, take tapered nuts. Hopefully, someone will confirm. Apologies for not checking the first pics. more carefully, but you don't see many of these rims around these days, with it being nearly 17 years since they were offered, and the high level of corrosion these diamond cut rims suffered from. Which is probably why they were discontinued. As Old Red says, the Centre Bore needs to be 54.1, and that's easily measured.

    Gen6 and gen7 wheel nuts.

    You MUST use the collared nuts on the left. The tapered nuts on the right are unsafe to use on Toyota rims!. Please change them before you use the car again.

    Looking for my next Celica, is milage an issue?.

    IMHO, both cars are on the high side price wise. I'd be catching the ferry over to Liverpool, to have a look at a "Premium Blue". Makes the spec. of the Lagoon 140 look very low rent, and with the electric sunroof, has a higher spec. than the Chilli T Sport. Save yourself around a grand in the meantime. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2004-54-Reg-Toyota-Celica-1-8-VVT-i-Premium-Celica-Blue/382488744126?hash=item590e1b10be:g:tL4AAOSw4aZbH8mQ:rk:2:pf:0

    Pre Winter Checks

    According to some on HUKD, the Prestone smells of fish!

    Pre Winter Checks

    I bought 4l of Prestone -10C for £2.50 from Tesco recently, but they also offer 2l bottles of "Extreme Performance", supposedly good for down to -23C for £3.50. https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/287525988

    Toyota Celica Red Markeing material

    Amongst my collection of Celica literature, I have an eight page A4 size brochure on the Celica and MR2 "Red" editions from March 2004, and a 12 page version covering the Celica "Red" and "Blue", plus MR2 "Red" and "Chrome", from September 2004.

    Tool kit

    Mmmm, maybe I should get an Umberella, ella, ella, ella.
  10. I can recommend someone, but you're looking at 50 miles each way, about 70 minutes drive away from you up the A38.

    Pre Winter Checks

    It's not uncommon on the Gen 7 for the hinges to break. I've seen quite a few advertised with the flap no longer flush. Another thing worth doing before the short days and long nights, is cleaning all interior glass.

    Tool kit

    Why do you need to carry tools in a Toyota? Apart from things needed to change a wheel in the event of a puncture..torch, first aid kit, and waterproof jacket only.

    Pre Winter Checks

    1) Lubricate Fuel Flap Hinges 2) Top up reservoir with winter screen-wash 3) Grease Locks 4) Replace Wipers 5) Check Tyres for tread depth/nails & screws/pressure (which will drop as the temperature falls) 6) Lubricate Brake Slider Pins with silicon grease

    Pre Winter Checks

    So..who is up for a thread listing items that would benefit from some attention, before Frosty the Snowman makes an appearance?. Hopefully a lack of apathy is shown, and a few of you take the trouble to contribute JUST ONE item, making this a worthwhile thread I'll "kick off" with something that can easily be forgotten.. 1) Lubricate Fuel Flap Hinges

    E10 fuel?

    You'll still be able to buy E5 for a long time yet.
