It would be interesting to see. but interesting in a BAD way... AU's look just about as good as a celica with a 4" cannoon muffler and a TOYOTA RACING sticker across the back...

i love the look of au's(especially t-series), personal preference maybe. Although I reckon the el-xr front looks better then aus xr's.
