Hi all,

Bought a 2001 1.7 today from eBay, got up at 6am and got the train to collect it.

Very impressed with it and only £275, although the disks are warped and at least one bearing is hmmming away.

Looking at the how to guides I think I can tackle both these jobs at home.

I will attempt to add an image.......

Cheers, I'm very impressed so far, just came from a similar vintage Celica and this is much better.

for that money that looks pretty good, discs and bearing are reasonably easy to sort if you have basic know-how, plenty of help available on here, just search or ask

My goals are world peace, and a piece of the world... if my plans for a benevolent dictatorship ever come together.

At the moment though am too busy with this: viewtopic.php?t=29348
