    How long have you owned your celica?

    Bought new in 2004, so 11.5 years now. Was possibly the most modified Gen 7 on first registration, so you can imagine my surprise on receiving an award for "Best Stock" earlier this month
  2. If these are the Team Dynamics rims as fitted to the pre face lift 140 with the "Sport" pack, send ams a PM http://www.celica-club.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/177446-17-team-dynamic-multi-spoke-wheel-1-or-2/#entry2254465

    Rear brake caliper gen7

    If you need a new caliper, rather than a service kit, they're cheaper here.. http://brakeparts.co.uk/#!/shop/TOYOTA/CELICA/01-/CELICA%20ZZT231%201.8%20VVTI%20FWD%20-%20190BHP/Rear%20-%20Brake%20Calipers%20and%20Wheel%20cylinders If they don't come with new bleed nipples, order a couple of them too.

    I could be wrong here, but didn't I see a pic. of your car on another forum, with SAGA seat covers fitted

    Reversing beep

    I've heard many owners in Yorkshire reverse to work and back..the lower mileage on the clock reduces depreciation.

    Opinions on a replacement

    Neil..that is £56, not £5.60!!!! You could buy a new tyre for that

    Aircon recharge

    ETS have offered me an MOT test and full Air-Con service (without guarantee) for £55, but all their branches are in the East Midlands.

    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

    I'm back 👋🏼

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

    celica GT vs GT86

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

    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".
  20. 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?.
  21. 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
