you are in Belgium right next to the Atlantic ocean...

Unlike most other Toyota vehicles, the Celica model comes directly from japan... this explains the high prices - and even higher in harder to reach zones. So either it needs to take a boat all the way north around Russia through the ice, or down through Asia and Africa or around the other side of the planet by pacific ocean through north & south America

either that or a boat ships the car from japan and it drive on the back of a truck across all of Asia/Europe to get to you

Celica says "MADE IN JAPAN" on the manufacture door panels. Check other vehicles by toyota - does it also say that on the door panel happywink

your in Europe right?...

why buy Japanese economy when you can get a nice luxury automobile such as Audi or BMW... what is it about the Celica is it that you would rather pay more than a have that over an equally priced upper class vehicle? (equally priced as per where you are living)
