I happen to have the kit installed on my car and have been driving with it for several months now.
If you are thinking about buying it, and you want to put it on your "daily driven" Celica... you can FORGET about lowering unless you have ATLEAST 19" wheels!!!
Another thing - you NEED to have ATLEAST 17" wheels on your car (without ANY lowering) to drive this bad-boy around.
With stock wheels and NO lowering, you are 4" from the ground.
The kit extends the rear of your car by 8", the TRD Extended exhaust that comes out 6" - my point, your exhaust will NOT come past the R2 bumper, even though you need an extended exhaust (this could be bad, no?)
The front of the car with the R2 kit comes out an extra 6" then with the stock front bumper. Also, the R2 front bumper is squared at the bottom... unlike the stock bumper which is angled / rounded... and 6" shorter.
You can FORGET about taking your car with this kit to do your grocery shopping. And if you got passengers in your car, make sure they are a COMBINED total of NO MORE then 300lbs... or you aren

id242, you've probably got that whole response saved somewhere so it's ready to cut and paste everytime, huh? j/k <IMG SRC="http://www.newcelica.org/ubb/smilies/cwm12.gif" border=0>
Shortchange14, I agree with id242 for the most part but 19" rims may be a bit excessive... I think with 17" rims and not lowered less then 1" you should be just fine with the R2 kit. You do have to change the way you drive but that's the case with any kit.

id242 has 17" with 45 profile tires not lowered and he scraps alot, maybe your roads at places you drive is nicely paved or something. With my Veilside kit I scrap everywhere if I do not go into and out of drive ways at extreme angle. I have 17" with 40 or 35 profile I forgot and everytime it scrapes it could mean the end of an expensive kit.
