I'm looking at possibly getting a Celica for my daily driver. I really want a GT-S for the better engine, but there has been some KICK ASS deals on GT's around.

Anyway, my question is what kind of price would I be looking at for buying the action kit and throwing it on a new GT? I'm talking wing, front piece, side skirts, and rear valance? Would it be cheaper to just get an aftermarket kit?

Yes, it is...I would highly suggest buying one with the Action Package already on it. I was at a dealership last night, and it was a $1600 option...worth it, since that's painted and installed... If you were to buy the kit seperately, it would be about $2000...

How rare are they? I found about 20-25 Celica's in my area for sale.. only 6 GT-S's, and none with the action package. :(

at least nowadays toyota has started only really putting the action pkg on the GT for the "looks fast" appearence. toyota figures that the GT-S is already fast enough.......but if you want the 6sp and action pkg i would suggest ordering it through your dealer

Actually, I would go further than that. Look at what the additional price for the action package is on the sticker on those GT's. It should be about $1600...

Now if you order the TRD kit from the parts department, it's gonna cost a lot more than that...so don't do that...

Make sure that you show the GT sticker to the salesperson, and tell them that you want a GT-S, with the action package, and you will not pay more than that sticker for the kit...

They should install it for you too...good luck...

I think for the additional action package on my car it was only about $1,000 but I would have to look at the sticker price again.... Action Packages aren't too common BUT latly I have been seeing some around town....
