Nice car! Mmmm GTR, the version we should have gotten here in North America.

Those things had TEMS? holy kats! Is the GTR a narrowbody or a widebody? Can't quite tell from the photos.

Toyota Electronic Modulated Suspension

It allows you to adjust the ride, (soft - Hard) & adjusts itself when it senses hard Cornering/braking/accelerating.

And theres three cool LED's that light up the dash when you spank it :)

All the USDM ones come with a bulb and wiring from the factory, and the corner piece is red with no vents instead of the orange with vents you guys get. Here's a pic of what they look like in the daylight: http://www.celicatech.com/forums/vbgarage.php?do=getimage&id=457

Hehe, I am almost certain that a fair handful of ppl would be more than willing to swap you even for them. Now the question is, who would feel they got the better deal and paid shipping? :hehe:

Now if you are intersted in a set of USDM front corners, I might be willing to trade... ;)

That's a nice ride, and I really like the color. Welcome. Come to think of it, I don't think I ever made a noob post. Anyways, nice car, especially the TEMS. Good stuff.

I have vented corners that light up. The best of both worlds.:)

Looks like I nave a new project. TEMS conversion on my ST185.:hehe: (j/k)

We definitely got the suckiest versions of the Celica here. A 3sge vesion in the states would have made this car sell like mad. Not to mention it would have reigned supreme over all the others like the integra and 240. Fuck you USDM:madfawk:

The wires were already there since I have an american car. The easy thing for you to do would be to buy the light socket and tap them into your rear tail light.
