  1. I would guess that a lot of it depends on general driving style. Anyone that likes to give it some serious stick is going to recommend PS4s or Eagle F1s etc because they need the extreme grip that these tyre types offer. Those that drive within legal limits will probably recommend cheapies. My GT4 came with 18" Bola wheels shod with cheap copies of Pirelli PZeros and they were really grippy. My newly fitted original 16" three spokes have been shod with Avon ZV5s and they go sliding quite easily on a wet road. Avoid them. There will be better opinion posted I'm sure. I'm quite inexperienced when it comes to performance car tyres to be honest. EDIT - I have never used a specific "season" tyre. Don't really see the need in this country.
  2. The last Gen6 I saw on the road was over twelve months ago, a silver ST202. I've seen a couple of Gen7 but that's about it. I must be living in a fairly Celica poor area. I've seen more on the Greek Islands than over here
  3. Aaaaah, they're all across the Irish Sea. Holyhead ferry must be full of the buggers!!!!!!!!
  4. Washed the Celica this morning and then we went out for a nice drive along the A5 into Snowdonia. Did just over 100 miles and not a single Celica spotted. I did get a couple of thumbs up from non-Celica drivers though I'm up to nearly 600 miles of driving without spotting a single other Celica of any Gen. Where are they all?
  5. A boot-tidy..................Yay!!!!!!
  6. I think that will be my tactic. No prolonged use just clean, dry, cover overnight.
  7. I've bought a cover for the ST205 but when I mentioned it to the guys that did the respray they grimaced and said that it was okay to use one in this weather but they wouldn't recommend it in the winter. Only ever put a cover on when the car has dried but even then it can sweat and hold the moisture in making corrosion even quicker. They reckoned it was better to leave the car sat in the weather so that air was constantly circulating, letting the car "breathe". Opinions please because I don't have a garage and don't want to screw up after getting her looking right.
  8. Trawled through all my "stuff" that came with the car (L975 EPB) and the original water bag and tubing is there for the water injection system that was required for the ST205 WRC homologation cars. Thanks to Jim for telling me what it really was 'cos I thought it was probably for the intercooler radiator spray-bar.
  9. What have I done to mine today? Had two separate occasions when I had to take a watering can out to slosh off birdshit. Gotta look after the ceramic coating until the weekend when it should be fully cured and I can wash her
  10. UK spec rear light clusters. Bargain at £10 each from GT4_heaven. Even came with all bulbs installed but haven't fitted so don't know if they actually work.
  11. These arrived today from Lithuania. Don't need them yet but nice to get a bargain full set of superstrut suspension components for the "Faff" ready. They are rebuildable as well
  12. Absolutely ! Couldn't turn it down. It will be worn with pride when the weather is a bit colder
