My Corolla E12 & Future Upgrades


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm new here although I have been viewing the forums here and have seen some sexy looking E12s! Hence why I had to open up an account here and create a topic so that you guys can assist me in upgrading my baby. biggrin.png

Right to the point. I originally bought my Toyota Corolla E12 2003 1.4 car in September 2013. Since then I've:

  • installed an active vibe 10" subwoofer with 2 x 6x9s powered by the Sony Xplod 52watts
  • Installed 6000k xenon bulbs
  • Tinted the windows
  • Installed Team Heko wind deflectors
  • Installed green SMD footwell lights
  • Tinted back lights

Now it's time to take the big step and upgrade the alloys from the standard 15" alloys to 17"/18" Inovite ST16 alloys. Which one looks better the 17" or 18s? I don't want something too big or catchy, I'm going for this kind of look:

My Corolla E12 as of now (Sorry for the bad quality, was at work) blum.gif:

Also I'm looking to purchase a set of the BC BR coilovers, before I purchase them I was wondering has anyone else got them on the corolla E12? If so how are they? Additionally when installing the coilovers will I need to change the drop links? I'm looking to drop the front by 45mm and the rear by 40mm so that it will match nicely with the alloys I will be purchasing after I've lowered the car.

Future mods:

  • Tint front lights (MOT legal or not?)
  • TTE/NK Tuning rear spoiler
  • Custom exhaust
  • Aftermarket front bumper, side skirts and rear bumper

I'm open to suggestions!

Thank you all for reading, hope to hear any one of you soon! biggrin.png

Thank you Raistlin, which wheels? :Jumpy:

Also have you any suggestions for me?

Err your wheels, the top one is a stock photo of what you are aiming for I presume...

That is correct Indeed, I was wondering what sort of colour would suit my vehicle and what " I should go for? I'm not sure whether that is 17" or 18"...

I would go for 17" and paint it storm grey

I like the sound of that!

Also I wonder do you have any experience with the BC BR coilover setup? I'm looking to purchase it but need help on whether I need anything else before I install it on my car.
