PostSubject: Hi From Kent    Mon Jul 09, 2012 1:44 am

I really hope I found the right place, I have just brought a car and I am looking to modify it and do stuff too it. Not sure what yet and tbh I am having mega problems in finding out what or where I should go for parts.

I pick it up tommorow and was woundering if you could all tell me if im right by saying this is a E10 or AE101 or what im confused and I have seen some GT's on this forum are they the same?



I only paid £425 for it with a years mot and 111k on the clock. few bumps and scraps but nowt major. What do you think? good buy?

Oh and hello to everyone Very Happy sorry i a bit excited haha lol havent had a car for a few years lol bounce bounce

Welcome knite! Nice car, and good luck fixing it up. It looks to be in good shape from the picture, except the front bumper could use a paint!

Welcome dude! The more Hatch's and liftbacks I see overseas, the more I wish North America went with them instead.

Any help you need with parts, or even adding Mazda, Subaru and Nissan bumpers and other bits, we have guys here who can tell you most, if not all, of what you want to know.

They're rare here. We only got the Wagons and Sedans (saloons). You see them sometimes, but it's extremely rare.

Well, most people think you already have the best bumper! I would not change it. Just get the paint fixed up, add some good 15-16" wheels, and lower it on coilovers! And, a muffler/intake, sound system. And, some black housing head lights would look very good as well. I suppose you could do many things to the car Laughing

Welcome to the site, looks like you got a bargain for £425, the GXI was the top of the range hatchback of the E10 Corolla's 1.8, 118bhp, disc brakes all round, body kit and front fogs.

sounds like a plan Very Happy i like the bumper i got but i done like those huge indicators in it and are the necessary? im sure if i changed headlights for some black ones that would mean i could take them out maybe? or do they at least do clear lenses fro them?

yeah there are clear lense black headlights available..

like these



you can get the oem ones (bz touring ones) or you can get the cheaper copies

and as far as i know, you need the front indicators to pass MOT

yeah i understand where you are coming from, most have them next the headlight.
You can pm our traders on the site kiwi corolla for an oem set or pm jdm hunter for the cheaper copies
also the light protectors are something iv never seen thats why say its rare. But they must have been available only to the euro marketcas our side lights are different to the jdm or usdm ones
