Do Not Sell My Personal Information

New T Sport Owner


Recommended Posts

Decided I would trade my old Astra SRi against something with a bit more poke! Being old enough that I can now afford to ensure some of the cars in the higher groups (or old enough to know better according to the wife!) I have been doing the garage rounds

Test drove, Astra GSi, Civic Type R, Clio Club Sport, T Sport and Focus ST thingy (just to remind myself why I realy, realy detest Fords)

Decided on the T Sport, fast but not crazy, firm but comfortable, sensible insurance premiums, understated looks and decent mpg.

1 year old motor, 10,000 miles, Carlo Blue, just the standard T Sport, 3 door and I pick it up Friday.

Been reading the forum a lot today and see posts regarding engine noise and radio/dash board vibration. I didn't notice either on my test drives of the T Sport but I'll keep an eye open for them when I get it home.

Hello all!

Just picked up my Corolla Sportivo last week and it's running great. it's done about 750km and it's breaking in nicely. I got a great deal from Penrith Toyota (NSW, Sydney) for 29k. I absolutely love the leather interior.

Are there many Sydney-based members on this board?

I owned a 1989 Celica for 3years and loved it but my new Corolla is so much quicker. I notice understeer more in the corolla than in the Celica but straight line speed is pretty cool.
