Should I give up my Celica for this?

It would be a graduation present, when I graduate from graduate school about 3 years from now, when the lease is up. My celica would be used as a trade in to pay for it.
I would do it hands down but my dad said the deals off if I mod it.Its an '03 2.5L 5-speed.
If its put in my name I know there's really nothing he could do about it anyway, but he can be pretty tricky. Anyway here's some pics I just took, its still barried in snow laughsilly :

Eh. no! It would be strickly engine mods, probably from Dinan. If they ever make anything for it that is.

Only basics as well, like chip, exhaust, maybe an Intake of some sort. All depends on what they ome out with. I wouldn't mind a Dinan S/C tongue

Yeah, I guess engine mods would be okay. Still, roadsters aren't really meant (in my view) to be drag raced. More power never hurts though, I suppose.

As long as you don't do something like this MORON around here who put a body kit on his Z4. The thing looks like it was made for a S2K and he just used a dremel to cut it to shape. angry

Yes I would, 184hp right? Very awsome color and nothing wrong with modding the vehicle as long as it's tasteful and you can bet there are some good companies that offer good parts for the BMW.

rice Most definately! ( www.dinanbmw.com ) ---> Makes great stuff. I used to have a bimmer so I found out some stuff about bmw aftermarket.

And like I said it would really be only engine mods. I just want for my next car to be more track (1/4) worthy smile

I honestly hate the look of the new Z roadsters...

Just my opinion. Looks like a short version of the mercury cougar with a convertible top...

Celica's still my favorite car, if I had a GTS I'd be set. But yeah, there will be a lot more out then, but I probably won't be able to afford it. Maybe I'll be able to get a used Evo or something

I actually have a "connection" with the guy who is designng the new Z-4 for BMW. ( A pitch anyway, he works for them) and it looks sweet! He's also redesigning the viper, and the Toy MAtrix ---> which looks like ass.

I'll see if I can get his sketches and post them wink
