Different Celica

I went to Toyota dealer last week to change oil, and I saw new Celica GTS looks a lot different than before, here is the picture.

If I'm correct, that kit is not made by TRD. It's Toyota's new "Action Package." It look's alright...

scroll about half way down and this is what VSGTS14 said: "Toyota bought the TRD body kit from Toyota over a year ago...dubbing it the "Action Package" so it was made and sold by Toyota, not TRD anymore.
TRD discontinued a lot of their body components for the celica."

TRD is a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Sales...that's why you don't see anymore body kits for Celicas in a TRD Catalog...cuz it's not made by TRD.

I could be wrong though...

Eh. TRD is a sompletely seperate company. If the kits made/designed whatever by TRD, then its the TRD kit. All that toyota did was get it from them.
Just because Subaru buys some of their seeats from recaro does not make them Subaru seats, or the (momo) steering wheels.

What do I like about that car? Spoiler and headlights
What don't I like about that car? Everything else.

Toyota is slowly killing the looks of the Celica. frown

I don't like the way they did the headlights: they painted the top side, which gives a smooth appearance.. instead, they should've painted the underside, to get the ribbed [for her pleasure grin] effect, like I did:

Compare Toyota's (red) with mine (metallic black)

I only like the Hood scoop and the rims. And everything else I think it's worde than before. The sticker price is about 25100. And I saw another 2004 Celica is look like before. So I think TOYOTA is making 2 different kinds of Celica this year. One is the one looks like before, and another one is the one you just saw. And I believe the one you just saw is with the new action package. Old action package looks better...

Nope...when I saw it for the first time a few months ago, I loved it. Dunno why everyone hates it confused Like, the kit doesn't look bad, more subtle than the Action Package for sure. But I like how it's changed...tails need to go though. With a drop, a person with one of these is practically done with their modding tongue

That celica has been sitting at the dealership for a while now. I doubt it will ever sell because of the $25,500 sticker price and the fact that most people don't like the new action package!
