Dubbed A Chicks Car, But I Enjoy Looking At It As Mush As Driving It. — I can carry an amazing amount of stuff in this car. I even had a dryer in the back. I carry my bike in the hatchback. Have to remove the front tire but, what that is resy as the bike has easy levers on the wheels. The mechanics say they like working on the engine. The seem very impressed with the resilince of the engin. I am too.

Celi — This car was my baby. It is very good with Gas and the Exhaust sounded amazing. My celica had great Handling and it was my project car too. I did tons of work to it spend about 2,500 dollars on transmission, cold air intake, air fliter, Exhaust system, radiator, Headers, and short ram Intakes.

Pros

Looks, performance, comfort.  Basically everything.

Cons

Nothing to hate yet, aside from having to fix all the stuff that was neglected but that's not the cars fault.

Will Be Keeping This For A Very Long Time. — Well, lets see. I purchased the car in August of 2012 and have been fixing all the neglect of the previous owner. I have replaced the turbo since it was seized and broken and have a few little things left to fix. In terms of cost, it hasn't been too expensive to be honest, even considering I've had to search for parts since the car wasn't sold here. Acceleration wise, it's pretty quick. 255hp and AWD makes it get off the line quick and since the turbo has a ceramic exhaust wheel, it spools very fast. Not much lag to speak of. The brakes are huge, they are 315 mm (12.4 in) rotors with a 4 piston caliper off a Supra Twin Turbo. Comes to a stop very well but I've also got some high performance tires on it so that helps as well. It's a 90's Toyota which means it's built like tank. Aside from parts that have been broken by the previous owner, it's in great shape. I think it looks great. The huge vent on the hood with the small ducts to cool various engine parts. Four round headlights I think look very cool along with big fog lights give it a tough appearance. It has a very curvy body with big rear fenders and out back has a raised 2 post spoiler. The spoiler is straight from WRC and I think looks really good as well. Few things that the WRC model has over the regular GT-Four are the lifted rear spoiler blocks, the small wing along the back of the hood and the water sprayer inside the bumper to cool off the radiator for the intercooler. It also has a set of OZ Racing Cronos wheels in 17" diameter which are also in white that look great on it! Much better than the 3 spoke wheels that come standard (I think they're very ugly lol) Considering I'm just about finished getting it on the road, I don't have good ideas yet on gas mileage. I've read that if you keep it out of the boost and drive casually, you can see some pretty decent mileage out of it. Once I get it on the road and take it to my favourite road, I'll update with how fun it is to drive.

Love It — just an overall great car - have 160K miles on and recently re-did all the suspension and handling so drives like new again. Good winter handling, and gas milage. Has the whole stylish feel to it with spoilers and everything - put some speakers in the trunk really enjoy driving it now

Fun, Fast, Cheap for the speed, Handles better than a WRX in my opinion

Cons

Awesome — Performance is extreme much quicker than the new skyline, a 350z or a WRX as I have raced all of these and beaten them by more than a car length. I can keep up with an Audi R8 but only just. The build quality is acceptable and has really improved since I switched over to V&E Rigoli as my mechanic. I like the exterior and interior but want to get Dark Black carpet and New Front seats as well as a Body Kit and paint the car in metallic black to finish it off. Car is not too bad on gas considering how quick it is. Around 380km to a 55-60 dollar tank. Extremely Fun to drive and embarrasses a lot of drivers when I tell them the whole build cost 30K (8K for the car and 22K of mods) especially when compared to the high cost of the skyline and R8. Don't get me wrong R8's are hot!

Fun Fun Fun — Goes quite well, made a few modifications from standard. Love hooning it on track, lots of grip available. No reliability issues, Exterior is in good shape for a 16 year old car, but i've introduced a few battle scars. Maintenance isn't too bad, but factory parts cam be costly, MPG can be pretty poor, but I thiks that's more ot do with how i drive it.
