Been rocking this for 3 years+
Love the car, very decent to live with and will smash the back doors in of a lot of other motors. Cheap running costs and incognito looks made me opt for the pfl. Anyone that says its slower than the heavier celica ts or genuinely believes its 8.4 time is an obvious armchair critic and has clearly never had the misfortune of coming up against one.
It isnt without its negatives though, fuel consumption is poor for what it is, but you bought it cos it was quick so who cares.
Brake sliders seize, but its 40 quid for all four corners so no biggie
And heater matrixes on earlier models are prone to going wrong.
Other than that it is a genuinely solid all rounder
