Cravo is moving to the dark side - Formerly Tentative Interest Thread

Question

Afternoon Boys and Girls,

This is a very tentative interest thread for my Celi I am afraid.

I am considering another motor that is similar but very different so it totally depends on how I like the car I am potentially going to test drive soon.

You may have seen my mod thread and seen how much time and effort I have put into her and how much love I have shown her in the 15 months I have owned her.

So, heres the full spec.

Exterior - Replica GT/Dynamic Front Lip, Replica TRD Skirts, Replica TRD Rear Valance, Genuine TRD Rear Spoiler, Black Custom Toyota and T Sport Boot Badges, Black Likwidart Celica infill, Lowered 35mm on Apex, Tinted Rear, Third, Spoiler and Fog Lights and Side Repeaters, 5 x Tech 5 Alloy Wheels, Custom Centre Caps, K&N Panel Filter, TRD Skirt Decals, Powerflow straight through de-cat Exhaust with 3.5 slash Tail Pipe (Exhaust Bung ordered to quieten her down), Matt Black Bonnet Badge, Aluminium Spark plug cover, Engine plastics are to be re-painted this weekend hopefully with a new finish.

Interior - Kenwood Double Din HU but this wouldnt be included I am afraid., Matt Black Centre Console, Blue Clock, Blue Hoody Gear Knob Ring, Blue Climate Control Conversion, Mook Dials, White LED Footwell, Door Card and Puddle lights, New Avensis Gear Knob

She has 114k on the clock with full service history, MOT until March 2014, Tax until August 2013. Just had interim service with full service history. New Denso Iridium spark plugs 200 miles ago, 2 Brand new Kumho KU39 Ecstas on the rears three weeks ago.

Bad Points

Stone chips as per usual round the front end

Couple of tiny car park dings on the rear quarters

One of the rear tech 5's has a buckle but has been balanced out ok

Centre Cap decals arent the best but I will sort this out soon.

A little bit of wear on the boot plastics, could do with a freshen up

Heating has an issue, blows warm one side cool on the other.

All in all I regard her to be in excellent condition, mechanically and cosmetically aside from the heating issue. Could be a new matrix needed but could just simply be an airlock.

I have a rough ballpark figure in mind of around £4200 ono and as I said I am just putting the feelers out at the moment and may not even sell at all but just wanted to see what the interest might be.

Here are some pics, you know I love pics :lol:

Three-four months and I'll have £4000 - may need to chuck a bit of months wage at it. Ding dong! Hit me up when you sell up. <3

Ok dude, Like I said I dont know if its a definite go-er yet all depends on the test drive :lol:

Good thing is you have seen her up close as well and had a good look round already so you know the condition ;)

You may be wondering why! I want a face lift. I'm liking the Thunder Grey more and more every time i see it. Everything I would do to it, is done. I'll probably spend 2500 on mine in that space of time, and it'll annoy me that it's not a 190. And not a facelift. Easy as that!

Yep! Seen it upclose and loved it. Plus with how it is right now, it's great - has everything done to it that I would do! So... no grumbles! Fixing blowers is nothing, probably something silly, but niggly that I could have fixed for hundred quid or so. Everything else is tip top. I'd have it tomorrow if I had the cash right now! Wish I'd have known, wouldn't have spent a grand on my car up to now and just saved it for purchase of yours!

I have called betvictor and put a shed load on that baby staying in the club.

I hope to see your next project unfold on here.

One of a relatively few heavily modded cars that I "got".

I like the later ST246 but this is just far too similar to a stock avensis for me plus amongst the most hideous of all toyota interiors
