Should I trade in my 2000 GT for a 2003 GTS?
What do you all think. I have a GT with 95K miles on it. I saw a yellow GTS with TRD kit. I still owe about 2X what its worth and is it worth it to trade it in for a new one? I really wanted a GTS, but stupid me, they didn't have one when I went, so I got the GT.

Well, if I decide to trade it in, It might be after 6 months or so. In the meantime, I will buy mods that I can later take away and put in GTS, if I get it.

ur probably gonna lose a bunch of money, but if thats not to worry about, then definetely go for it. Performance mods cant be taken from gt to gts. there different.
get gts if you want lift, and 6 spd.
if you want speed, then Turbo ur car. or else swap the engine.
turboing a gt will be faster than gts and it is more Turbo friendly cz it got low compression

Its a better investment to keep the GT IMO.
I wish I had a GTS too. I did the same thing you did and got hastey with the buy and took the GT because they didnt have a GTS. You can still make the GT fast and if you keep it, it will be easier to do that from a financial point of view.

You stand to lose a lot of money if you do the trade.

my opinion: no.

basically, there is not a TON of difference between the gt and the gts. sure the gts has 40 more whp (due to 'lift) and you can get a 6-spd. but it's still a celica and there is still not enough difference to justify a trade in my opinion. moneywise, it's just not worth it.

don't do it, get the TRD supercharger & Hood. you'll be a bit faster than GTS...

I think Ive made my decision. I am not going to trade it in cry. I will loose a whole lot of money, and I don't have much. But anyways, even though the GTS is faster, I love my GT. So no GTS for me.

i think you made the best decision. it would be different if you had gobs of $$, but if you did..why would you be driving a 4-banger in the first place? wink

there isn't enough difference between the gt and gts to justify losing that much money. thumbsup

Not really. The GT S/C from TRD puts out less HP, more torque. It's nearly identical to the GTS.

Except, no lift or 8000rpms
