Hi guys,

yes i believe its about time i started a thread for my car, i guess so people know which car is mine at meets and all that sorta stuff:p

so yea got this car for christmas last year, my first ever car. Second hand, ex company car with 57000km's on the clock. Looks abused inside and in some corners outside. Never planned on getting one of these because i thought they were ugly and looked like a whale, now i kinda like it though :) Very glad i didnt end up getting a commodore since i can barely afford fuel for this LOL. guess i should just get a job.


so yea this is what it looked like the first 2 days i had it..

So yea as you can see its pretty granny spec, since it was a company of course it has no fancy extras:(

So after two days of owning it, i just couldnt bare the sound of the stock system, there was NO bass whatsoever, so i got this:

http://www.abload.de/img/167412_486463014241_78d776.jpg

800W Schneider Sub and 600W Schneider Amp which is under the drivers seat. It might not be a known brand, but it does the job, and that job isnt exactly bad either:D

So after this nothing happened for a while, i then got bored, and did this, inspired not by the GTI but someone else's Corolla.

http://www.abload.de/img/img_3908efriv70q.jpg

http://www.abload.de/img/img_39093emmj7nm.jpg

I am still deciding on whether to keep this or not, its not painted on its actually just pinstriping tape:)

Then again a whole lotta nothing until i decided to jump on the HID bandwagon. Got myself a set of 6000K HIDs from eBay for 80$. Were a bitch to install, cut my hand while reaching into the engine bay, and they flicker. Then one stopped working because a wire wasnt plugged in correctly, and just today after the meet the other one stopped working for a reason i have yet to discover. Oh and i also bought LED parkers off ebay :)

http://www.abload.de/img/img_4263copyxf7ql7u7.jpg

I was told installing those parkers would take 10min, i took about 4 hours. Reason being i dropped one of the parkers INSIDE the headlight and had to shake it out again. Then when i plugged it in it didnt work, then tried taking it back out again and GUESS WHAT i dropped it again. But now they work. Better than my HIDs. FML.

Some artsy pics while nothing happened..

http://www.abload.de/img/img_4279copyfghaz7j4.jpg

http://www.abload.de/img/img_4280copy4ij1475n.jpg

Then i sort of decided that i had to choose between a style or theme to go with....my choices were either the european Rat look, with the rusty hood and roof rack etc. just rolling on steelies, or racing style with light weight black wheels and black roof and red racing seats and and and.

Photoshopped it up and liked it, but didnt like the practicality..

http://www.abload.de/img/img_3485copycopyncqcx7x4.jpg

Then one day i got the chance to test fit some Volk Racing CE28N's on my car, and i'm glad i did. But took me ages to get the money together. So while i was saving up, decided to take my scratched hub caps off and roll on steelies, kinda going with that european rat look. Steelies got boring after a while so i did this, yes ive seen it on other cars but they sorta had more dish and more rim.

http://www.abload.de/img/picture018-48keh9f7a9.jpg

http://www.abload.de/img/picture021-50wchyq7qx.jpg


But then FINALLY after several months i get my stuff sorted and bang! new wheels! Genuine 17" Volk Racing CE28N's. very pleased, love the look of them. I personally think i couldnt have chosen better ones:)

http://www.abload.de/img/img_5691-5qiyo97c3.jpg

http://www.abload.de/img/a73eff2a87j1.jpg

This is how it stands today, some of you might have seen it at the meet. :)

So my current list of mods:

-800W Schneider Subwoofer
-600W Schneider Amplifier
-6000K HID Bulbs (currently broken)
-LED Parking/Position Lights
-Half Debadge (SECA and Ascent badge, dont want people to know i have the cheapest model corolla out there lol)
-Removed Mud Flaps (dont know if this counts as mod, i just add it so the list is longer)
-17" Volk Racing CE28N in Matt Black
-Lowered Springs (40mm front, 50mm reset back)

Next mod will be a new right headlight because it doesnt fit properly and then getting a new set of HIDs

i like how u went to the effort of taking pics with the JDM number plate

looking hawt

are you going to change your badge to Auris?

Wink
05-10-11, 01:44 PM
These new model Auris/Corollas are great base for modification..

Have a look at this car for some inspiration, it's easily one of the best in Australia:

Although on the other type of style, the rust-spec/roof-rack photoshop mockup you did would also look excellent, reckon you would get lots of positive attention with that style!

I reckon you should do a full debadge except the Toyota badge !

Notice in most of his pictures, he has the same watermark? peeps know each other.
Not sure if you were actually serious, but your comments sound sarcastic.!

haha A.rices auris is where i got the inspiration for the red grill surround! Regarding the Auris badge, i will eventually fit one on the back, at the moment i just have my priorities set somewhere else.

Thanks for the comments :)

and also FINALLY lowered my car yesterday thanks to some other members :) 40mm lower in the front and 50mm in the back, sits nice and level now. and makes such a difference!

Get some tints dude, will make it looks heaps better! Those wheels look heaps good aswell, how's it handle now being lower?

Seby123
04-03-12, 05:42 PM
thanks Nath. i want tints eventually, not sure on how dark though. i love it when other people cant see inside, but might be annoying to have them that dark at night haha.

havnt taken it for a proper run but it feels a bit stiffer and also more planted on the road :)

i really just wanted it for the sound, the minor performance gain on high rpm and better throttle response was a bonus :p
