Now I just have to get used to having 6 gears to play with, and it has a new clutch plate too so it bites at about 5mm!! I can see many wheelspinning incidents in the days ahead rofl

I can't wait!! I am not going to be able to sleep this week... grin
Here's the interior btw - definitely needs a good clean, bet it looks crazy to you left hand drivers!!

I don't know how you guys change gears with your left hand.

I'd get confused and crash the car. It's like trying to write a note with my left hand. rofl

i cant drive right hand drive cars, i used to drive them in india, and its just differnt you think they would change the gear box so first gear was in the opposite location as in the states, but no!, first gear is on the far left hand top corner (or atleast in the cars i drove) where as it would be much more effiecent if it was on the right hand side in the top

Those are the fog lights - yes they are standard on UK celicas, due to the legendary weather we have over here! Maybe they'd be useful to residents of San Francisco too eh thumbsup
