If you don't mind me asking. Where did you buy the bumper from?
I've been looking for an OEM one as well, with no luck so far.

HAHA yes I am from Australia.

The bumper was ordered from Toyota, so it is safe to assume that you can still order them from TOYOTA.


Toyota Australia can order parts from the Japanese parts warehouse because of their close geographic locations. US Toyota dealers cannot do the same thing. You might try ordering through http://www.amayama.com/. They can get parts from Japan and ship anywhere in the world.

Canadian Toyota dealers can too, but US dealers can't, even when the part is in the US warehouse.

Amayama is your only option, that's where I got mine. Don't ask anyone on here from Canada if they would help you to get one, they won't.

Finally got my hands on the alternator snorkel. Surprisingly functional as it keeps the alternator cooler

Do you have a photo of the top of your rear camber plates? I am looking at a set and I am unsure if the plates will only adjust camber.

That's all I need to know. I have a feeling these polish ones on eBay are not built correctly for the celica.

Nice!

I noticed you don't have System 10. How many speakers does your car have? Are there still speakers located behind the large grills next to the rear passengers by the arm rests?

Also, what is that switch located under the ignition next to the red light?
