“Very slow ”

Written on: 15/04/2014 by cgcav (1 review written)

Starlet gt 0-100 in 8,3 seconds stock and the Punto gt 0-100 7,8 seconds stock both, japanese never learnt how to use the turbo power in good into the RPM range, and the starlet it's very very ugly and unsafe car, the punto was more fast only with 8 valves, people just repeat things that repeat japaneses, the car never was fast than european cars in the same time, stop to repeat lies… Read Full Review

Toyota Starlet 1.4 GT Turbo 16v. Killer of a car I'd love to own 1 of my own. The output of the engine is impeccable, especially when the car is so light. Recommended car for those who love a tight, nippy ride. Amazing little car so can't really find any bad points… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/11/2008 by youknowme (1 review written)

I love my 95 Gt.... bought it for a song around 18 months ago, needed work but I gave it full attention and now its mint... (Well should I say WAS as I took it off the road so I can get it ready for when I have 1 years ncb)
Did quite a lot to it, plans now are1.3 bar on gt25 hybrid, fueling mods only, then td04 at 1.3 bar on stock management and stock internals and just fueling mods, then 1.8 bar on forged and management... should be quite stupid and pretty unreliable

Written on: 13/10/2008

I purchased a 93 squarelamp Toyota Starlet GT 3years ago with intention to track it but it was that good I decided to multi task and use it everyday... It had done 150k kilometres and the turbo seals decided to go (It was running higher boost with upgraded bits here and there) so it was going to give up sooner or later. I upgraded my turbo brakes coilovers etc and its amazing. Yeah it doesn't have the low down grunt of a big engine but once they hit boost they are really quick. The reliablity… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/05/2008

This car is an animal, not many half decent cars can keep up with the staggering 0-60 time of 6.9s for the EP82 which is identical to the 0-60 of a BMW 330ci. The Toyota Starlet GT is also easily tunable and with a resonable amount of money spent on good aftermarket parts you could be running around 180bhp with 1 bar boost, which let me tell you form my own experience is a lot and provides serious acceleration. You will pick up a good condition EP82 with a few stage 1 mods such as filter… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/11/2007 by mathew (1 review written)

I have had my starlet for 2 years now, and i can tell you driving this car is a thrill. Whenever you switch the turbo to high, it simply jerks, picking a thrilling speed. I always have friends asking me what make of a car is this. It doesn't look very new, but its an authority on the road. Please Note: This speed isn't for starters as the car isn't very stable at high speed. You need yo get used to driving it before you try the high turbo option. SOBER DRIVERS ONLY!!!… Read Full Review

I've only had the car 3 months and I love it! I'm really picky when it comes to cars but this one is great! Mine's in a bright white and everywhere I? go people just stare at it, it's mad! Just the car for a young girl racer like me. I've only got 1 years no claims on my insurance and I'm still only paying £600, well cheap on petrol for how much you can rag it.
If you want to be different then get one of these beauties! Otherwise just stick to your everyday Corsa!… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/07/2007 by slinky007 (1 review written)

Owned my car for 2 years and I can say after queuing most of the top hot hatches this car is way up there with Evo STi GT-R... Now maybe not in performance but if you take into account the low running costs 311 + km to £20.00 on low boost. The engine and box is bullet proof. No worries there. Wheel bearings do go often at £50.00 a time. Parts do cost and best place to find them is the online owners clubs.

I own the Toyota Galanza V the replacement to the Toyota Starlet GT which basically is exactly the same but has face lift and nicer body kit and other styling changes.
