I actually drove up an hour from my house, to purchase this car;







But when i got there, he said they had sold the car the previous night, at 9 o clock(about 12 hours after i got there :/ - I had an appointment too QQ) Anyways...

That is a 2001, with i think a TRD kit, and the spoiler, i'm unsure about...

I see a 2000 gt-s w/o the kit, but it is 2500$ cheaper(Plus i know how to haggle!) and thinking i could probably get the kit for less than 2500, so it might be a better deal anyhow.

Just wondering if anyone can help me out, and recommend where to purchase the kit from, with a good site, and not too rediculous in shipping. I basically want to make this car (If it's what i get...)



Into the one in the previous picture. I believe the kit is bolt-on correct? - I don't want anymore modifying, because i did that with my escort, and umm, not really too satisfied, or hell, i wouldn't be getting the celica! :D

Well, with this site... i can get the complete kit, plus it shipped for only 580$

http://www.customautotrim.com/bodykits/399line/Toyota/Celica/2000-0000/

Think that is good? Then the car+kit will be well under my 10k limit, and could probably even get a paint job while i'm at it...


My only real concern is that if it is bolt on or not?

And, i'm seeing know a few reviews on how there isn't a lot of space for the passengers in the back - A big concern for me, i usually drive with quite a few people in the car(have driven with 8 once... they squeezed in pretty good. Tint in the rear windows, so cops couldn't see anything lol.

I definitely have to test drive one, but hard finding one that is anywhere near me at all. (If anyone lives in NJ and has a 2000+ gts, and wouldn't mind me taking it for a spin(or hell, just come look at it...) let me know!!!

If I were you, I highly recommend sticking with the authentic TRD bodykit. With the real thing, it's guaranteed perfect fitment, is a direct bolt on, and is made of the strong polyurethane instead of fiberglass.
