Celica, sure the STI is faster, but the Celica kicks ass in looks and can be made to go fast

smokin having nightmares with your STI? i should have hold on to it and not trade it off coz I personally like the STI but since I don't have the money, my GT will do just fine and with a trubo kit, I think i'm contented with it.

But yeah ... always aim high if you can afford one... go for it thumbsup

i just had a wrx...which is really nothing compared to STi
my opinion is the looks of the WRX is puke when it's stock, and requires a lot to get it to look pretty sweet.

sti stock is good looking, from being around one for so long over the summer, it was a big difference than stock wrx and for 05, it just makes it better.

i think if i had the option, i would get an sti since the fun factor of driving and it being fast, turbo makes up for it's sometimes dull looks.

perfomrance wise--the sti beats the celica hands down. it also has more aftermarket support.

everything else wise--the celica.

Ok, i never understood exactly what happened. You sold your celica got a WRX, black if i remember correctly, then next thing i know you got your old celica back. Did you sell it to someone and buy it back from them, haha, i imagine you threw away some money somewhere down the line there.

just traded in wrx for it at equal price and wrx sold like 3 weeks after that

I sat in a STi yesterday, and can't believe how rock hard the seats are. Plus you get the feeling like you are sitting in a truck after sitting in a dropped celi. Also, the interior is cheap. Plastic everything, I know they did that to keep it light, but come on. It's 34k. Yeah, it's fast, and drives like a raped ape, but stick with the Celica.

Celica no doubt. I think the celica with the action package is the best looking car there is besides maybe the 200,000 dollar cars. Actually I like my car better than any car period because it is almost exactly how I like it. I care more about looks with a car than speed though.

I wouldn't get an STI I would get an EVO 8 out performs the STI according to Motor Trend.. and I think it looks better. As for the interior the sti looks like a sunfire in comparison to the EVO!!!

STI is badass, but its a 4-dr. Celica is a coupe and its sleek but slower. It depends what you really want, grocery getter that you can blast around with your friends and kids, or a cool ride just for you and your GF. smile If I had the money I'd own both.

Celica. I like the styling, gas mileage, handling. I do wish it had more HP, but that's not the most important thing to me.

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

Easy...I'd take the STi. The Celica is too much of a limited tuning platform even though it looks so good. plus the STi can confortably seat 4 people.

If there was a cheap-priced turbo around for the Celica, I'd go Cely. Otherwise, I really do like the STi! Or a 350Z would be cool too smile

i like the STi very much.

but id still take the celi over the STi...

first off, build quality.
2nd, reliability...that is...if you care..

for the exterior... idk, STi looks hella hot. and i actually like the STi look over the celica look. but the celi got something to it that you wont get tire of looking at it. the STi...to me, i get tire of looking at it for a while..

you guys are freakin retarded, sure i like my celica...but an STi? theres no comparison...300+ hp compared to 180...turbo it or not...if you are that stupid to pick celica over sti, at least buy an STi, then sell it for a celica if you are content with 180hp stock.
