Corolla Sr


Recommended Posts

i use to own a 98 Corolla sr and then i changed jobs and got a Puegeot 306dturbo for economy but blew the s**t out of it last week. i have decide also that the fuel economy wasnt that great. anyway i want to come back and am going to get another corolla. however i was looking at the SR with the facelift that came out in/around 2000 with the different lights and interior, as well as 6speed. Its also the vvti engine and i was just wondering what peoples advice is on which one is the better car.

cheers

no not really looking to modify it at all, might think about a filter maybe but no intentions of doing much to it, quite like the look on the facelifted model as well, looks quicker than the old one. plus the mpg is suppose to be a bit better as but not sure if they are as good as the old ones

Yeah, I agree with philjones 1978; if you want to modify it then get a pre-facelift! Its really hard finding parts for the vvti engine!

I really like my car (facelifted SR) and prefer it to the older SR but obviously I would say that! It does have all the "trimmings though"! ..... ABS, A/C, Sunroof, 6 Speed! , Electric windows and mirrors... and a leather steering wheel! (haha knowlson!) lol

Not too sure on the mpg differences though!

Get a G6R mate! :thumbsup:  :lol:

Got everything that the face lift sr has and the ability to mod easier!

I agree! If you can find one! :)

Yeah, but if you see any in black, leave them for me! :D :lol: lol

:rolleyes: There is a nice black Sr with a supercharger up for sale at the mo...... :D  :D

Knowlson, i'd love to buy your car, but:

1) i cant afford it....

2) even if i could afford it, the insurance at 19 would cripple me :ffs:

3ZZ-FE... 109 bhp @ 6000 rpm, 111 lb-ft @ 3800 rpm. The ZZ engines are a considerably more efficient design than the now 13 year-old Gen-II 4A/7A designs.
