everyone says it looks nice but says it aint that fast. what I tend to hear is that celicas are slow "but oh, not yours, you dont count" ha ha.
but yeah, i don't know what message boards other people surf on but...the general consensus is that the celica is an underpowered, over-priced, chick car with over-rated cornering ability that has good top end power (GTS). you hear it from eclipse,RSX, tibbys,honda owners, hell even from some celica sites.
personally i don't really care what other people think. i can think of far worse things to drive around in
