Hi All,

I have had a thread on here before, regarding my old car...



But I have now moved on and grown up a little bit (and my insurance has dropped now I'm 25!)

So I have picked this little one up !






The only modification I have done so far is a TarmacSportz strut brace.



The paint work is in a terrible state with stone chips and general tiny dents here and there, the previous owner didn't really take much care of the outside!

Let me know what you think!

Ryan

Awesome car! Love this Toyotas
Stone chips are a bit of a pain, from what I understand the paint is really soft and it picks them up like crazy (had it on the last Lexus and this one also)

Great car, and I actually quite like the wheels.

Rosso is that the latest Blue?

Great Car. I had the Gen 7 Celica, that was then replaced by the GT86. Kind of wish I had kept it and supercharged it as a guy from the forum developed and supplied the kit for it. Sold it at 170000 miles and it still revved nicely up to 9000rpm.

Enjoy.

Love the GT86 (and the BRZ), great looking cars and very reasonable price for what they are. Seem to be holding their value well too, which is a bugger as I want one

Being 25 made sod all difference to my insurance, was more the NCD I'd built up that brought it down. Apparently 30 is when it actually makes a difference, but even that's minimal I'm told! Insurance...

Enjoy the car, though looking at the little Citroën it won't stay that way for long!

No issue at all with the standard 17" wheels.

Easy to clean too

Yes, latest Blue. It's lovely.
