True.
however, most of the car theft or break in, is because of the stereo system.
that's what im worried about.
its cost shit load of money for aftermarket one, or the one that i want.
and their fitment isn't very clean. theres always gap between the plastic and there are too many buttons for function.

the celica stereo is not "crap"

If you have a GT, hold down the treble/bass push in button for 15 seconds to "unlock" the midrange control, and the sound will open RIGHT up at 2-4 MID

If you are getting an 03 stereo, be careful of the type you need. Starting in 03, the GT could be bought with the same stereo as the GTS, and will not work in an 00-02 GT. you need to get the basic stereo if you have an 00-02 GT wave

I was impressed with the stock sound quality when i got my celi. Then i ripped it out and put my own in. All you have to to is take off the wire harness and put the stock plug in, simple.
