I actually liked the responsiveness I felt when I drove an 04 GTS Auto at Toyota's Put it in Play. It sx though b/c it's not PFC friendly.

Drive By Wire was important change to add an electronically controlled traction on the new celicas. I dont know if its an option, but it is a nice thing you can hace in a car for best acceleration.

drive by wire sucks, it's all hydraulics and they are a bitch to fix and a waste of money.

Drive by wire is more stupid emissions crap. My mom's 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi is drive by wire and it doesn't give you all 345 horse power when you floor it. frown

You don't have drive by wire b/c its only on GTS's not on GT's
