Yes,it does look familiar. :P

Funny thing is, I just bought one of those last week to try and see if it would fit the 510. Guess if I can't make it fit the 510, it'll go on the Corolla... :wink:

Or buy another one. Thankfully here in the States they are dirt cheap ($50 new).

Another new purchase for the Corolla this week!

Total cost £17 New

Image

Yes I know its a Ripspeed one but the welds are really good, its the style I wanted and its not actually that Big so it will be just right!! Cant grumble for 17 quid!!
It has been obsolete for over a year now in work, so I did a store search and I got the last one in the country hidden away at the back of another Halfords store room!! So i had it sent to my store! The price had dropped off to £20 then less my staff discount!!

Ive spoken to an exhaust builder and Ive been quoted £128 all in for this to be fitted along with the rear half of the system in stainless!! (the front half will be done later with the 4 branch manifold )

To give you some Idea, its smaller than the one in my Sig below \/ \/ \/

Wow, that is quite costly. But that stuff is difficult to find even for us here in South East Asia, and we have that quad lamp version of KE70 here..

Well, Can't wait to see them fitted in your KE70.. Update soon..

UPDATE

Yes and this time its a mix of good and bad!!!

Well I parked my car outside my mates house over night and this is what I found in the morning
Image

Someone had hit my bumper AGAIN on the same corner that got hit last time last year!! Its bent the bumper and the bracket, ripped my plastic end cap in half and dented the front panel under the headlights, all of which need replacing or repairing this time!! Unfortunately no note was left and it was a hit and run!!
Hopefully i should be able to get the bumper no probs as my supplier owes me a new one as this one went rusty after only a few weeks and is faulty! The rest ive got to buy myself!!!



However, on a better note I have got myself a new set of winter rims!!
These are Proper JDM yO TyTe etc etc Watanabe light rims running Dunlop Cut slicks (although street legal they are crap in the wet so are gonna be changed). Ive got a soft spot for these as I has them on my old CRX too, although these are wider with a bit of a dish!!
The best bit is they cost me nothing as i swapped them with a local guy with an AE86 as he liked my wheels with the polished lip!! Job Done!!

Heres some pics..............
Image

Image

Image

Image


The wheels are 14x7or7.5 with my old ones being 15x6 so they fill the arches out nicely!!

As you can see Ive also Added the chrome strips on the rear lights as per JDM models too!! I'm an attention (to detail) whore LOL.

Watch this space for my summer wheels coming soon

Shame about the front end, some people just do not care about anything! Other than that though, the car is coming along quite nice!!
