    Thanks Tan, that's a pretty sweet looking car.

    It looks like the cosmetic cover on the TMIC would block a good bit of flow. What do you think? I wish the third pic were larger to get a better view of the back. I find that, all too often, the back of the car ends (pardon the pun) up looking stupid relative to the front.

    My coworker and I were reading the japanese website (his japanese is 10 times better than mine). The caldina seems to be the JDM Matrix and comes in 4 different body trims with a TRD bodied version as the sweetest looking imo (same 4+1 door config though). Apparently they'll have a GT4 verison (like the kick ass celica gt4 from a couple years back). Its 4wd not Awd and as far as i can tell only comes in a 4 speed auto. Still a kick ass car though. The engine pictured is rated at 260 PS (256HP) and 324 N*m ( 239 ft*lb) and is a 2l turbo. Base price for a car with this engine and 4wd seems to be around 24-25k in yen.

    Hope they bring this car to america or at least give this engine as a choice for the USDM matrix/corolla/celica. I love toyota's; especially the build quality and the awesome interior designs they have. This thing might give the stock WRX a run for its money in terms of performance and value.

    Oh just to add for who ever wanted the website where I got the info:

    http://www.toyota.co.jp/Showroom/All_toyota_lineup/caldina

    The links in the first row on the left are the most intresting; First section and link says concept; Next section is called Varaition and the links under that are 1. grading, 2. "welcab" (some handicapped thing), 3. Customize; The third section is called Design and the links are 1. Exterior, 2. Interior, 3. Calibration (? not sure). That spretty much all I looked at. The exterior and interior have some hi res wall papers if you want better images.

    Also they were bragging that its a low emissions engine in one of the blurbs for the engine so I don't see why it would be an issue to bring this engine over

    Toyota should just go back to turbo instead of copying honda with all these variable valve timing. Bring back Celica turbo and Supra TT!.
