Speeding (8/13)



  1. Yeah am a bit gutted tbh, they've both spent fortunes on their identical Celica s over the years on ere, they've got 3 cars for sale due to moving, think the t sports under offer I think must be difficult trying to sell at mo under those circs.
  2. Unfortunately my mates other halfs selling her his n hers Celica too now unfortunately due to moving (both members on here you mite remember em) here s the link am a bit gutted, they've spent loads on em if anyone's in the market. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2002-toyota-celica-vvti/264955066927
  3. Cheers, yeah I'm not sure how they're supposed to work exactly, but they do look unsightly more than anything else
  4. Yeah thanks, can't really see how it's supposed to work, don't know how crucial it is, most cars I've seen, particularly on o/s have had similar wear, only thing is in that state it's prolly only gonna make vibration/centrifugal forces worse, don't know whether it'd be better cutting em off?
  5. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/toyota-celica-t-sport-2004/264939554658?hash=item3dafa0c762:g:53IAAOSw5QNfsW-V&redirect=mobile This has to be one of the best most well written car adverts I've ever read ever, it's my mates car/members on here, I'll find his username used to be insolentminx or rsvr boy or RC I think Can vouch for the car/accuracy of it too still
  6. Lol I know the last thing I'd do after having the rear subframe changed is not bother mot-ing it, having said that, a gen 7 s that actually had had it done is the holy grail
  7. Yeah ditto, I'd take a punt on it esp. with the GT provenance with those caveats, had some cat c 's in the past and created a couple, it d be handy to know why if poss tho affecting value could be innocuous. How about this one, just had a new rear subframe, but can't be bothered retesting? Looks quite tidy tho. https://www.gumtree.com/p/toyota/toyota-celica-1.8-vvti-spare-or-repair/1385455737
  8. Always thought I'd start this thread, anyway've spotted an interesting car, (Not for me at mo), but just like to gauge others opinions on buying tips, and for people's heads up, like. Would you buy? If not why? How much would you give? Any good or not so good things youve spotted about it etc? And the like, Anyway so have spotted an interesting sought after one to get the ball rolling. How about this one for you people out there!! Snog, marry or avoid? https://www.gumtree.com/p/toyota/2005-toyota-celica-gt-1.8vvti-limited-edition-read-description-/1385413385 Or even marry, with a pre-nup knowing there mite be a quick impending divorce!! Any thoughts on the above and others people care to share.
  9. Lol yeah thats dead right unlike the Celica I do all myself I've had to subcontract out for the grooming and FSH.
  10. Yeah I know what you're saying my bonnet bumper and reg plate were pretty similar from the previous owner, the paint does seem quite fragile, but unfortunately it's now been added to by my round town parking scrapes etc!! Your car does sound pretty good for a 200k er, and with the underneath in good nick, mines similar, you d actually be hard pushed to buy a better example ironically!! Mine does look pretty shabby I suppose in retrospect maybe a bit more paintwork tlc or applying something pre motorway work may have helped poss?
  11. Of course motorway miles is prolly much better than town miles even cosmetically. I've always wondered where they get the 12k average mileage from and whether it's totally accurately representable. I've pretty much always limited my miles to between 3 - 5 k but I do use mine quite a lot but mainly jus round town, occasionally im surprised when I've realised I've gone over the quota, but unless I was using mine for heavy motorway or daily commuting I couldn't see myself ever getting near the average 12 k. And so the low mileage 30k 10 year old car must still actually be quite a well used car.
  12. When you say 'light' how light exactly are these any stats? All I know is most alloys I've lifted are far from light, I'm trying to perceive the effect/difference on unsprung weight.
  13. A v tasty looking wheel that have to say, the OZ ones look nice too but the JR ones for me just look too similar to the standard tsports
