for price wise and daily driven enjoyment in my opinion go for the SE, in comparisons in other class of the camry models its just minor stuff here and there... like different gauges/color, some interior differences, headlight housing, rim package, sport-tune suspension, strut tower brace, etc etc etc... just money wise decisions to shoot for
oh yeah, since he said the 5 speed auto is available for the 4cyl. option, the 5 speed manual would be cool to look for; besides making it more funner to drive
the only reason i bought an i4 solara, was cus i already had 2 v6's (both being imzfe's). And cus' my solara was going to be my commuter car. If your buying this as a second car..then let it be an i4, otherwise stick with the v6!
Hmm, personally I would go V6 because getting to that output you would need to spend $$$ on your 4. What would it cost to put a supercharger from dealer on a i4? thats the only way I would go with the 4. Its a lot of car to be hauling. Too bad Toyota dropped the manual for the 6.
Consumption wise, I think its a fair trade for that extra pull.
1. Aerodynamic multi-reflector halogen headlamps.
2. Integrated fog lamps.
3. Power tilt/slide moonroof with sliding sunshade.
4. Chrome-tipped exhaust.
5. Leather-wrapped 3-spoke sport steering wheel and shift lever.
6.Multi-adjustable power front bucket seats with adjustable headrests and seatback pockets; driver’s seat with vertical seat height adjuster and lumbar support.
7. Metallic-style interior trim with chrome door handle accents.
8. 17" aluminum wheels w/p215/55r17.
9. Jbl am/fm/cass/cd w/8 spkrs in 6 locations.
10. Rear spoiler.
That's all standard on the simplest SE. It has every thing to make your car look and feel sporty. JBL sound system kicks ass and the V6 SE power to spare.
I'm a little biased though! I bought my wife a 2003 SE. I liked it so much I bought a 2004 SE V6 for me.
I bought the 2004 SE V6 with the sport pedals, ground effects and alarm. So far I've added new blue Xenon headlights, Limo tint, and a Aero-Turbine muffler. I Love My Camry!!!
So I vote you get an SE. 4 or 6 cyl. you can't go wrong. I'm a little partial to the V6 because of my need for speed.
Not yet, maybe I'll take a few before shots this weekend. I'll post them if I do.
Problem is I'm only up at night. Can't really take any good pictures at night. Though I took a picture of the inside of my muffler the other night and attached it to a thread.
My after shots is after I install the TRD lowering springs, TRD rear sway bar, Kazera KZ-A rims, BF Goodrich g-Force TA KDW 2, TRD strut brace, Solara dual gate shifter and maybe racing seats. The seats are up in the air, Everything else is etched in stone.
