Toyota Celica, Coupe, Hatchback

hey, I was a victim of a misshift in my 2000 gt-s 6 speed. My boyfriend (Now X obviously) misshifted very badly. Trying to go to 4th in a race, it slipped back into neutral while going about 75mph or so and he buried the rpm needle into 9 grand for about 2 seconds. I took it to soem toyota techs and so far I've paid 1,275 bucks to have 4 severely bent valves replaced. Two weeks later my check engine light is back on and I'm supposed to go get it fixed again.... the 6 speed celicas are notorious for this problem and Toyota NO LONGER has this problem under warrenty because it is occuring sooooo much. They say it's driver error. Life lesson: Lil boys shouldn't play with womens toys.

the 6-speeds were notorious for having the gear slip back into neutral, though!
I think the problem before the redesign was shifting down 4 gears by mistake instead of 2.

Ok guys, wish to replace my under-seat Sirius tuner with a plug and play unit. Where can I put this darn thing in my 6-speed!

I was very dissapointed to hear that the Celica was going away. However, the new Scion is a heck of a replacement. If they can package this car for around 17-18, Toyota won't be able to keep them in the showrooms.
The best part is that it is a hatchback with room for 5 people.
