I would get the GTS because of the cool red badge you get to sport. Also feels nice rolling up next to a fully debadge Celica knowing that they are a GT j/k (I know some GTS who debadges to fool people like me, bastards! hehe)
I'd go with the GTS. The thing is, I like my GTS not just for performance, but for the great fuel economy too (yeah, I'm one of those older guys that likes to save gas). Don't get me wrong, I like lift and all too. The boosted 1ZZ-FE wouldn't get as good mileage, and would probably develop trouble a lot quicker than the stock 2ZZ-GE.
I guess I'm saying I like the GTS because you can have good performance if you want it, but you can also get good economy if you want that.
300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
Some of these posts crack me up. Especially the people saying they love lift. And nothing is compared to lift. I have been in a gts, lift is nice and all, but is nothing compared to F/I. If you like lift, then you would love F/I, F/I is like lift times 10. Drive a F/I GT then tell me you like lift better
