Right now it is only available to APR affiliates and their sponsored cars so they can promote this kit, even then they have to shell out quite a few bucks for the kit. As for the retail price I hear $3500+ for the kit only you still have to shell more bucks to paint and install those pieces. Remember to make it look good like the APR show car you have to mold pieces on... This is not a kit for a daily driven celica.

Oh! forgot to mention you will need to get new wider rims because of that widebody to look good, spacers will not look good and to bring the wheel that far out is kinda dangerous... APR body kit is not for everyone, it is for few people who has a lot of money to spend.

not the best idea for a daily driver, eh? fuxorz, it loox so damn good with those wide rims (although i dont know if the rear rims r supposed to b wider then the front rims, considering its a front wheel drive car.) still my dream car though... wink

yeah in order to actually use that wide rims you need some sort of forced induction (turbo or supercharger) to make it sort of functional. Otherwise that kit plus the rims is going to make your car even slower, you look good but you will be slow as hell... Can look good and watch grandma in their cadillac pass you by grin
Just playing but there is some truth to that smile

iono, some caddy out there... lol j/p, but yea, ur damn right. that particualr celica thats featured with the apr kit has a blitz s/c i think so its all good for them. damn im so sure they wood win so many shows, i mean if they actually let the tires touch anything but the garage floor that its currently living in with better care being provided for it then i would ever expect to have when im in a retirement home eating mayo out of the jar and watcing all my children... holy shit did i get carried away. sorry. lol. anyways thats a tight ass celica. i wood definitly get that kit with those racing hart cr rims, and ill turbo set up with a crazy fuking system to scare the living shit out of that duck on that cadillac logo and to stop the pacemaker on grandaddy driving it up from florida.. see, there i go again getttng carried away... spineyes

see I could do that because I already got the custom turbo where I am making more HP than that Blitz supercharger kit (I am dynoed at 223.1 HP to the wheels and 198 torque), but that damn rim would slow me the hell down to maybe equivelant to 200HP to the wheels...
But I do not want that kit... just looking at it I know it is a high maintance kit, would kill myself if I scratch the bottom carbonfiber guards...

sup dennis, i'm the owner of the car they called "APR GT300"... thanks for the props... i dont usually post but i regularly check forums... its funny how some people know a lot about my car, but unfortunately most of the stuff they assume are not right... about the kit- it should come out in a month or 2... if you're interested about the kit let me know i might be able to help u... when we build the car we made performance a priority, it should perform as good as it looks and it is my daily driven car... the wheels are a big part of the setup, it completes the car but its not as heavy as some people think, its one of the lightest 19" rim i know... about running slow, my blitz SC is not even running yet (we have not tune it) so im running stock power and i have not seen any grandma pass me... if it is running slow because of the setup, well with the SC off i think i'm as fast as a stock GT...

the setup is a little expensive but its worth it... using spacers for a while should do the job untill you have enough money for a wider set... i used to run with spacers and its not that bad, people in japan run with them too... anyways hope you get the setup you want, let me know if you need something maybe i can help...

just an FYI

sup dennis... the rims are expensive, i didnt pay for them, i'm sponsored by racing hart... but if you can wait we know of a company that will be coming out with wide rims for front wheel drive, with wide lip just like my rims... if you have any questions you can call mike of BRS (626)968-7400... if only you're from LA you can swing by BRS, i'm almost always there, you can check my car out...

tuning? I thought blitz supercharger is suppose to come with a fully programmed ECU I guess I am wrong. What E-Management controller you using? If you are looking for a cheaper alternative from stuff like Tech-III try www.splitsec.com FTC1-E unit. CelicaUK (he has a supercharged celica too but his is custom) is looking into that to go with his kit.
Hay thats a nice body kit you have there, but man when I saw you pull into www.mbautosports.com meet I knew its not a kit for me because cost of the kit and the rims shocked
Neways hope you luck on that Blitz Supercharger, I actually saw 1 working at a buddy's muffler shop (A-1 Muffler) they were doing work in Blitz supercharger. It sound bada$$ when it wines at start-up (did not see it run very far it pretty much pulled out to give me room to park at his spot).
BTW I know you do not have to mold it, but to make the car look good (back wide body) you should mold it instead of having bolts stick out.
