    all right, the celica has looks but this has nut, want a baddass car, try the '93 celica GT-Four its got bout 225 stock my friend tells me and its pretty easy to get more power in, ive ridden in his several times and its a pretty baddass car if you ask me, only thing is, rare model, but, on these cars, take the RSX engine and drop it into the new celica if it'll fit
     
  2. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    Reading mags such as Car and Driver, Motor Trend, Sport Compact Car, I've learned a few things about the new RSX.

    1. I want one.
    2. The Integra Type R's greatness was lost in the transition.
    3. I wish they did something about those headlights, should have
    done a different design.
    4. I am expecting a better car out of the 220hp RSX Type R that
    comes to the states sometime in 2004.

    I agree, the Celica Action Package does do a better job of "Looking" faster, but the RSX does a better job of being faster. I would have liked to seen some euro lights on the back end. Nothing against the stock taillights, but just something to make it more identifiable than the other models. Overall, I say a good job was done. If I had to make a choice between the two though based on looks alone, I would probably take the RSX as I like the styling a bit better than the Celica's, although I think the Celica's are a great package as they come, just wish for a bit more power.<!-- Signature -->

    looks wise celica action package looks much better, but the acura has the better engine... both have six gear manuals... doesnt matter how good the celica looks, still cant outrun the RSX

    oh and MENECE... if you can read, this is a post about RSX vs. Celica... you made a good comment and then you bring in this viper gobshite; obviously a viper could smoke these cars... thats not the point :D

Although the RSX (6.7) is heavier, it still has better performance than teh celica (7.4) and golf (about 7).

  5. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    why dont u like the viper... dont hate because the chevys and the fords and other muscle cars dont compare to its tremendous power and force... Vipers can beat any muscle car outtheir. i spit on your face for talking out of your ass... u probably dont know shit about cars.. your are just a #$%#ing poser....
    #$%# you and your opinions not like anyone cares....

  7. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    7.9 sec?? I thought it's more like 7.4, but oh well, it still loses to the RSX. But in the handling section, the celica is really better. In overall, the RSX still wins, though!<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    yeh i like hte rws better than the celica. but i think the front headlamps need a little reworking. i'd cut that bottom part with the grooves out. but hte celica i think looks better. good aggressive design, from a certain angle it looks like a lambo.
     
  9. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    i gotta give credit where credit is due, the celica looks much better than this car. However, the perforamnce is not even CLOSE... this car will smoke, eat, abuse, rape, destroy, SHIT ON celica's perforance. I mean the new celica GT-S 0-60 is 7.9 .... if thats not pathetic then i dont know what the #$%# is<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. in looks mostly, what do you think?<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    I would take...ummmm...BOTH<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  13. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    Most deffinently I'd go with the RSX Type-s. The celica is to goofy looking for it to be sexy or aggressive. RSX type-S has a styling where you can do more with I think.
     
  14. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    They are both good cars, id take them both.
     
  15. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    the celica's style will go out of date for another 2years or so. but RSX's style well never go out of date....for another 10years..
    think about the old celica..everybody think it look good when it first come out..but now most of my friend i know think it's ugly.but the integra is a different story.. people think it look good when it first come(not as good as celica)..and most of the people still think it look's good even after all those years.....
     
  16. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    Id go with the RSX.Its probaly the best front wheel drive car you can buy.
     
  17. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    this, not because it's good ('cause it's not), but the Celica GTS's have reliability problems with the Toyota block and Yamaha head !?!?!, why they did that, noone knows, but it sucks
     
  18. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    I would take the type S. The Celica is horrendously overpriced even when compared to the Type S. The Celicas from 2002 were very crappy, they reduced the rev limiter, the shifter was notchy, interior was nice but it was cheap when compared to the Type S. The 2003 Celica GTS is going a step in the right direction though, they are going back to the old 8400 rev limit from the 2000 model, now they are fast again, shifter has a much better feel, interior is better, you can get factory HID bulbs. But still the Type S is faster, has higher upgrade potential, and is cheaper.
     
  19. Re:

    Celica looks excellent with the TRD body kit
     
  20. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    if ur talking about the 93 Celica GT-Four, its looks a whole lot better, goes a whole lot better and handles a whole lot better despite being a car from that long ago.
     
  21. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    I wouldnt chose any of them, I rather go with a Prelude
     
  22. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    Celicas with action package and the tiny GT wheels make me want to vomit all over my various household pets. This is not exactly tasteful, but certainly preferrable. STrangely, I haven't seen a single on of these on the streets.
     
  23. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    My sisters got a 2003 Celica GTS with the action package. How ever said it was expensize 7 thousandd miles we bought it used in perfect condition for 17,000.

    To mister b00st I would rather have a mini cooper S works too.
     
  24. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    Well, I'd obviously take the RSX Type S over the Celica, b/c I did. The Celica is slower, and the styling on the RSX is classier. The celica is just trying to hard to be something it's not. As far as interiors go...no comparison. Not that the Type S is the end-all-be-all. I think there are a lot of other cars that compete quite nicely and many are faster than the RSX. I bought the RSX for the following reasons:

    1. I don't need to be the fastest on the road.
    2. The RSX Type S has amazing "upgradability". (Many mods available)
    3. Think resale value.
    4. I think that for the $22k I bought mine for brand new, I bought the car that was the best bang for my buck.
    5. Take any of the competition listed below. None of them even come close to Acura's reliability, many of whom are $30,000+.


    Some of the Competition:
    Chevrolet Camaro
    Dodge SRT-4
    Ford Mustang
    Mazda RX-8
    Toyota Celica
    VW Golf/GTI
    Subaru WRX
    Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
    Mitsubishi Eclipse
    Nissan 350Z
     
  25. Re: This or the Celica Action?

    thanks for the credit you've given........
    I hate to tell you but the performance of RSX-S 'n Celica GT-S is not far-off...
    I've smoked, eaten, abused, raped, destroyed plenty of RSX-S without the help of nitrous.......
    don't get me wrong....the RSX-S have plenty of hp.....but there's a thing call power-to-weight ratio.....and that's when Celica's tin-can weight comes in play.....
    one more thing.....0-60 in 7.9?.....ummmmm......yeah that too is just a statistic....maybe you got it from reading diff. information sources out there....same car could have different hp, tq, 0-60 time.....depending on a driver or testing-group.....
    if I was you...not that it really matters...I would do more research on a certain vehicle before bashing it on open forum......

    just a thought!.....juuust a thought!!.......

    sorry!....one more thing.....I like the style of both RSX 'n Celica...
