new 2004 has the electronic throttle, which may be good or bad. as long as you're trading in why not something else, maybe something better.

The 03 & 04 have a few nice touches that I know of. All interrior electronics are the same color orange, not the tacky green or whatever mixed in with it. The GTS has a power antenna... and HIDs are a factory option now thumbsup

the action package is different, you can even get painted headlights thumbsup there are a few other, minor changes made..

i guess what i really want to ask is: why? it's still a 7th gen celica so your not going to be experiencing much of a difference. you'll 'lose' literally thousands of dollars doing this. why not use that money to make your car even better than an '04? and of course, there are a million other things to do with thousands of dollars...including saving it.

this is just my opinion: but it's not worth it.

ya...trade in something different maybe

but the differences are:
the orange lights,
better leather (im not sure from which year they changed the leather)
Drive-by-wire,
different lift bolt (which wears too, but not as much),
taillight,
liftgate,
bodykit,
HID (US version only. no HID in canada cry),
something about the sunroof material i believe,
darker interior,
better plastic...
power antenna (US verison only. i dont think they add the power antenna in canada)
rev limiter (this one im not sure. some said the 04 has a 7800 rev limiter...but that should be taken already from 03... im not sure on this one cos i never got a comfirmation.)
fog light
more body colors to choose from
tinted body color headlight houseing (non HID verison only i believe)
better shift (6spd)

hmm... i cant think of anything else right now...

If you're going to trade your car you may as well trade it for something a little better, a lot have gone to the 350Z and RX-8. But there are plenty of options.
