    Wow that looks awesome. Do you keep it garaged? It looks so clean!
    I lived in England for a few years and my car was always dirty from all the rain and grime from the roads.
    I don't know much about the 7th GEN. I'm an expert on 5th and 6th GEN and also the SW20 MR2.

    Thanks mate, no garage just occasionally get a good clean and wax. I know quite a bit about the 7. You should come over to our forum mate. Pretty active and there's loads of experts over there and you could probably help a few people.

    Thanks mate. This forum is very new and is a sister forum of this one which I have been running for 10+ years - www.mr2australia.com/mr2play
    I need as many users on this Celica forum as possible at the moment to get her moving
