that's a toughy since this the celi's last year. if i remember right there were only 7 or so shipped to northern cali this past month. try dealer inventory searches online or calling.

My car is gunna be 10x faster than yours...haha... I'm gunna buy like 10
of those speedchips! I figure if 1 gets me 20hp then 10 will get me 200hp!

Black and GTS are going to be a problem combo. It took me about a full year to finally find mine (Sept 04), and even then I had to drive 150 miles to get xactly what I wanted.

I suggest considering a pre-owned, and a custom paint job!! There's a ton of Silver Celi's around the globe!!

yeah your 15 and you want a brand new 05 gts 6 speed...your gonna put your pops through a hella insurance bill..but seems like your dad is loaded to get you an 05..what the hell happened to getting a beater hand me down car? i was rollin in a pos corolla 5 speed and it was aqua-green...but kudos to you my young friend if you get one..i'd suggest getting a 00-02 gts bc it seems you can do more to the engine..pfc etc...that way when your pops says, its time for you to pay for your own shit, you wont be dyin for cash and you can mod it up pretty fast..i dunno the population of your town but if its a small town, dont buy from there unless you got inside peoples...go to big cities bc the tend to be cheaper and more plentiful...hell you prolly could find a used turbo celica...keep looking..and when you find one..keep looking some more bc i garuntee you once you find a good price, after you buy it, a better one will come up..

Yeah, like everyone says, you're really going to have to shop around for an '05 GTS. I live in the Phoenix area, and as far as I know, the dealer here only have '05 GT models. Cali probably has more than around Phoenix. Used/low miles is definitely a good alternative. The '05 prices for the few Celicas out there seem to be quite a bit higher, too.

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

I almost bought mine through carmax, before I found one localy. I forgot what they charged me to ship it... I bought my GTS the day before the one I ordered arrived. The salesman wasn't too sad, he knew it would sell fast!

i'de go check that out real fast because it will sell extremely quickly. MAKE SURE you check the vin and vehicle history report. That price seems a bit high however i doubt you will be able to talk them down on the price due to it being a TRD and your 16. Best bet on talking down the price is having dad go solo and not be as interested in it. hehe, sorry but you being 16 and researching the car. your going to love it and since your dad is paying the salesman is going to see that and try to milk you for more $$$.

he is EXACTLY right... if they see how excited you are about that car there's no way they will drop the price... I ALWAYS have dad go when i'm looking at cars... and I just keep my mouth shut and let him do ALL the talking... those dealers WANT to SELL that car... but they also want to get the most money they can out of it... excited boy/girl = $$$$$$$ ... someone who's interested but not set on it = sale but at a lower price
