AFAIK, there was no '92.5 designation in any market that I know of. IIRC, the MKIII was still produced for the first half of the '93 model year, but didn't make it outside of Japan... might have made it to Europe, looking around real quick I found a couple British owners' pics of their "'93 MKIIIs". The first year MKIV was the '93.5... perhaps that's what you're thinking of.

It's just like the '86 MKII and '86.5 MKIII.... except we saw both here.

Alright heres to clarify, what people are probably calling the early year 93 was actually the 92.5 which came with JDM style front blinkers(clear) sunroof, and a few other non performance changes, I'll find more info on this later when I have time.

Paging Jeff Lange... Paging Jeff Lange...

(you guys probably don't know of him, so it's kind of wasted...)

Anyway, I sent a message to Jeff... the guy is a human Supra encyclopedia (and other cars as well) it's creepy. I once heard that he actually was the brains behind the Supra altogether and he directed the design and built of the MKIII from the womb!

No, really, the guy knows way too much about these cars and works for a Toyota dealership in Canada (so he can look up what Toyota's internal publications called it... if they even did call it anything different).



JDM style blinkers? The JDM blinkers for the MKIII were amber.... unless this was a special change for half a year. The only signals with clear in them that came from the factory, AFAIK, were for the European markets and only half was clear (they look really cool, too).


I hope Jeff emails back soon, I really wat to know what the deal is now too. So, Green, where did you come across a 92.5 (or whatever) anyway? It's an almost unheard of topic.

Go into the advanced editor and you'll see a paperclip icon at the top. Click on it and a window will open up for you to upload images, then you close it and click again and select the picture from the list.

Post the Toyota part numbers (it's on all toyota lenses)... I've got a set of full clears too, but they're not Toyota.


EDIT: Yeah, those aren't OEM. They're the same as mine... They make them for pre89 and 89+... same company makes front and rear side markers too.

Dude, it was a joke... they're not made by Toyota and weren't stock:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT

I own some too.

EDIT: Manufacturer DEPO Auto Parts Ind. Co., Ltd. of Taiwan. What do yours say? Also, I don't believe real Japanese OEM signals would be marked as being DOT/SAE compliant. Do yours have the same info on them? Part numbers on my signals are: 01-312-1643R-C and 01-312-1643L-C, didn't see it on any of my side markers so I presume it may be on the back side and I don't fell like pulling them off to check.

EDIT2: They make OEM replacement units and they make "Tuning" lenses. http://www.depo.com.tw/asp/pdf/P_TY_CELICA.pdf No idea why they're listed in the catalog for the '94-'97 Celica. See the bottom of the catalog page and you will see "All items shown in this catalogue are not original parts."

The stock units I have are labeled "Toyota" and "Japan".
