Hi All, After Some Advice And Help.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, had my SR180 around two months now and couldn’t be happier. It seems the perfect compromise between performance and economy. So far i’ve put these wheels on the car:

Team dynamics Pro Race 1.3, they are very similar to a lot of the BTCC wheels at the moment and that’s the end kind of look i’m going for. The pictures don’t really do it much justice as the stance and look are a lot better in person.

Next up are a few modifications and I’ve got a few questions so if anyone can help me out it’d be great J

Performance

There are a lot of options out there but the main one that stands out for me is the ‘Tune It’ option. This is mainly because they map it in to the car after fitting where as many others are just plug and play which i’m not keen on. I read the Redline Mag feature and was pretty impressed. But if anyone has had good results and experiences with other set ups then let me know.

Suspension

I’ve read the current topic on here about the Toyota Motorsport springs being made by Eibach and there being no difference. I’d already bought the Eibach pro kit before reading this so im just going to fit them anyway and let you all know what happens. Are there any Anti Roll Bar options that anyone knows of?

Exterior

I want to fit the Toyota Motorsport front splitter and maybe the side skirts as well, both as pictured below. Do we have to get them through our Toyota main dealers? I’ve found the part numbers.

Interior

I need an Ipod connection but Toyota have quoted £150 just for the parts! This seems a little expensive as the one for my Impreza was only £90 so im thinking it might be a visit to a car audio place. I’ll be getting the metal effect dash areas carbon wrapped along with the door handles etc. Also waiting for a reply on some custom SR180 mats as the standard ones are rubbish.

I think thats about it. I’m a Toyota nut with all of the cars i’ve owned being Toyotas apart from one. I’ll list them in a bit and post some pics up of any that people are interested in. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Jase

As for my old cars, here's a quick list in order of ownership:

1996 Starlet SR TTE in white

1994 MR2 MK2 N/A in yellow for some reason

1994 Celica GT4 in red running over 400bhp after spending ££££'s

1993 Starlet in red used for a run around

1996 Corolla WRC TTE also used as a run around while being restored

2007 Impreza GB270 Sport Wagon- mine was number 1 of 100 ever made.

And now just the Auris :)

Yeh i've looked at those and they seem good but i just feel that anything like that would be best off being mapped in properly thats all. How much are they btw?

Yeh they are 18's, pleased i went for them as i think 17's would have been lost in the arches. They ride perfectly aswell :)

Thanks for the comments, the GT4 was an epic car and if i'd had somewhere to store it i would have kept it.
