First Time Toyota Owner

Recommended Posts

Hay everyone,

So i have just brought a 2000 Toyota Celica ZZT23 1.8 16V VVT-i In Lagoon Blue. It has full service history and has covered 115000 miles. One owner from new who was a very nice lady who i don't think took it out of 3rd gear. LOL Are you ready for this i only paid £450 as she new my misses ;-)

I have done quite a lot of research and from what i have read i know about the Oil issues on the pre face lift model. Now for some advice!

What are the key things i need to do first before making it my own, are there any components that i should replace due to the age of the car or because of commonly seen issues.

Once i have completed a full service and got the car valeted i will post some pictures and let you seen her. I really hope that people on here can help me as i have a good basic knowledge but have only worked on MK2 Golfs!!! all the help and advice i can get would be gratefully received.

So as far as i can see it is standard but im very new to this car so if anyone can tell me different i would be very grateful. Also some help on the colour. The book says sapphire blue, is this right as i was also told that it was lagoon blue and the toyota page i looked at says its Spectra blue !!!!

Thanks again
