Well, the TC is a heavy tub, basically a cheap Solara. The supercharger option is nice, and probably necessary if you want it to be fast (Turbo would be preferred). It ain't a Celica, and the reason I bought my GTS is that I went to a dealer and found out the Celica was being discontinued. I took one look at the TC (the "supposed" replacement for a Celi) and decided on the spot I was probably going to get a Celica. Within a week I had my '04 GTS.
Won't deny the TC is an OK car, but I'll never own one. Of the Scions, I like the xA best. Still, have fun playing.
