What is this? Does it work?
Hey everyone.

Can someone help? What is this, and does it work?

Or more importantly, will it screw my car?!

It's all fake. I think someone on here actually tried one of those and it did nothing.

do you think if this actualy worked, they would be selling it for only $4.99?

dont you think they'd be selling this under a company name - or at the very least, Toyota would want to know about this?

In all serious-ness, that is ebay and I've seen some pretty strange things for sale on ebay - used toothbrushes, battleships, milk from 1996 (never opened), road signs, used tea bag collections, sisters... all sorts of strange auctions.

That's funny. Makes me laugh everytime. I saw that a while ago and thought for a split second...that's great, and then what the hell was I thinking. I wouldn't waste even a penny on that piece of crap. Just get some decals and add them to your ride, that's as good as 20 HP.

what I don't understand is - why do people buy a car that is NOT intended for speed (such as the Celica) and then think it will be fast? rofl

and then when they truly find out that they are wrong.. they look for ANY type of gimmick just to save face spineyes

I totally agree isaac, I know the celica is not the fastest car...and dont believe the '$5 miracles' I'm happy with a slightly modified celicas speed. I just really like the looks. thumbsup

The ebay item doesn't work, I brought it from ebay too. It was just a cheezy resistor that I can buy for 25cents at RadioShack!
