Hi, I'm Tom from Watford, got my corolla a couple of months ago and after test driving numerous cars, I finally settled on the one I have. Very few marks on it, two tiny car park dinks and full Toyota stamp. I use to drive a Escort GTi and was very hands on with it so I'm glad now that this is a bit more reliable and has a bit more grunt. Not got many plans for it at the moment, I put a set of HEKO wind deflectors on the other day and have just ordered a full set of drilled and grooved discs and pads which I am looking to fit this week! I may change/paint the wheels on it but not much else. I am also into a bit of detailing so love getting it shiney!!

Hi mate and welcome to TOC.

Glad you're a member of Lift now! :lol:

What are the Escort GTi's like? I was thinking of getting a 4 door version or a Mk1 Cortina.

Thanks for the welcomes!!

yea the GTi's are ok, after basic mods you will get 130bhp out of them so no massive power machines!! Easy to run and even easier to fix when they go wrong (alot) but just basic all round really. heres a couple of my old one:

as said though, different way of life stepping out of that and into the corolla, sooo much more comfortable and huge power difference!

ah ok thanks mate. I think I'll stay away from those. My 1.6 4A-GE produces 130BHP from standard. :P

Looks like I'll be searching for a Mk1/Mk2 Cortina then. :)
