if im missing anything check my profile, i think there are more stuff.

I just did the Major maintenance and nothing is wrong witht he car. And i do take care of my car very clean and nice.
Just bought all the clips and little stuff.
The suspension is brandnew, just got those and body kits and wing is only 2 month old. Almost everything on the car is new. Bumper just got repainted from rock chips.

it is hard telling...i would guess that you would be better off parting it out, but a lot of that suspension stuff would be a bitch to get off. i would guess stock you could easilly get about 12k, maybe 13.5k if you are lucky. parting it out is the way to go IMO

6 Speed?

With that low of a mileage and all of those mods, you can prolly get 15-16K easy if you sell it to the right person.

Just ask what you are wanting for it. If you wait long enough the right person will give you your asking price!

jae, i wouldnt be interested in buying a car like this cz its auto(not too much fun on a gts) and it has more aftermarket mods on it(scares me that the previous owner fucked around with the car alot)
but who gives a shit about me. ive been looking into celica values lately, and this wut i tell you is 90% accurate.
u can be able to sell ur car for a reasonable price if you are lucky. i suggest you put ur car somewhere, or tell ur fellow mechanic about you selling ur car. some customers go to their mechanics asking about cars. i know cz ive seen them. they come and ask "im thinkin to buy my son a nice car, for a 15,000$ price range, something reliable." mechanic says "i know this guy who has a celica, very well maintained, garage kept, very clean, hes asking for a 16,000$ but the car looks like 20,000$"
from a good buyers point of view, they dont want no aftermarket parts on a car, cz they are afraid that more aftermarket parts on a car means more abuse on a car from recent owner, but ur car is an auto so it cant really get that abused. the only 2 things that get abused the most about a car that buyers worry about is tranny and engine. you cant redline with auto to any point that a manual celica can and you cant really fuck up the tranny, and if you have, you can really tell.
my suggestion to you is take everything apart and sell the parts on ecelica.com and ull probably make more profit like that. most used car buyers dont really care about aftermarket parts and worry more about the car if they see it with suspension and all that.
i hope you got my point, makes complete sense. if ur car is well maintained with clean interior and all that, you can sell it for a good price. ive been checkin auto trader for celica for almost a year, and i would say a fair price for ur car is 16,000$. you can sell it for 17,000 if ur lucky like the way i said it. the trick is not getting rid of it as quick as possible, but try to be patient and wait for the right buyer. seriously though, do wut i told u, let the mechanic try to find one of his customers to sell to, if he can sell it for 17,500 hell get 500 and you get the rest.
know one thing, be proud of ur car and dont over or under-estimate it. when someone asks you why so expensive, you tell them because its clean as fuck. if you put it on auto trader, always put a 1000$ higher than wut ur willing to sell it for bcz no mather wut bargaining is gonna happen.
good luck, and hopefully this helped you out.
