From GT to GTS

What's up guys as I posted before I was looking for a Celica GTS 6 speed because my GT auto wasn't cutting it for me anymore. So I finally found one and bought it! It is absolutely amazing! TRD edition with the oil cap, fuel door, and rear upper sway bar. This car is in amazing shape and of course.... it's beautiful. I did some stuff to it and am making illuminated door sills right now that I will post when completed. Let me know what you think of my car and what I should do to it in the future. Thanks guys !!!!!

Looking at your photos, your body kit is either WingsWest fiberglass or a TRD/WingsWest knock off, since it looks like it has separated from the car body. Its rubber molding also doesnt look like the type which Toyota uses (comes pre-installed to each part) on those side skirt pieces. Genuine Wings West and Kaminari poly urethane pieces also have their 3M double-sided tape molding pre-installed to their parts.

Your rear sway bar install looks like it was purchased separately and installed by a third-party, due to the poorly cut / unfinished trunk-tray plastics from its installation.

The rest of the modifications (JDM fuel door. Wheels. Carbon fiber trunk hatch. Loose sub woofer, Multiple AMPs) also point towards your Celica just being a standard GTS manual, with parts (some being TRD USA and some being TMS or Toyota JDM) added by a previous owner.

I dont mean to sound harsh, so sorry if what I wrote comes off that way. It looks like you just got a standard Celica GTS with some aftermarket customization to it. It doesnt look like the style of a "TRD Edition Celica" at all. If that's how the vehicle was advertised to you, you got taken. BUT if you are happy with your purchase, and are loving your Celica; then that's what counts and you've made a good purchase. Congratulations with your new Celica
cheers

I only paid 4400 for the car with 100k miles from a dealer so i think i did okay. and yeah the parts might not be perfect or installed perfectly but hey... it was a good deal and i love it. plus i made a profit from selling my old one and how cheap this one was. im happy with it. Thanks
