  2. Hi gramacar, the modifications I'm making to my car not only improve the hanlding, power and looks, but also satisfy another element of wanting to do this, and that is to create a car that is a little diffrent from the rest, to just stand out a little from the crowd, to make it mine, to put my bit of character to it and of cousre, to just suprise even furhter that B'meer that tries his luck at the lights. Oh and that time hounered oldie "why do it",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, "coz I can" ;) gramacar enjoy what you drive, and drive what you enjoy :P
  3. Hi Phil, and welcome to TOC, if you have a read through you will see quite a bit posted on springs and Induction kits, but briefly the situation is this, TTE make there own springs fit these and you'll have no warranty issues, Blitz have just released an induction kit for the Corolla TSport and I have one on order, there is another one available with pics of it on one of the more recent TSport threads. Not sure what parts of your warrenty are effected by fitting the induction kit. I'm paying £200 for the Blitz kit which includes fitting and a rolloing road test, not sure how good a price that is, but it's a local garage, so if I get any probs I won't have to drive miles to get it sorted, and they come recomened which always helps. hope the above helps. Enjoy you TSport mate ;) link to thread on induction kits link to thread on springs another thread on springs

  18. Hi TW, after a great day out at Gaydon and a 300 ish mile round trip i reckon I've earned a pair of stickers stamps on its way
  19. Hi Guys, I had a great day well worth the 280 mile round trip, and guided tour across country, from Zee and fellow lexi's, them guys can't drive :P, nice to put faces to the names i exchange posts with, Hi again to Jerry, Paul, Lee, Steve and Rhaines, every one was so freindly, this was the first time I been to a meet like this before and was not sure what to expect, to repeat some of what has all ready been said, i was amazed at the number of cars that did turn out, some serious money has been spent on some of those cars, my favorite was the black TSport with TTE front spoiler and some very rare side skirts and nice 17" dark grey alloys, no seriously the one that did it for me was the Black Lexus 300, first time I've seen one, and I'll have to start saving. The must have nmod of the day for me was the led light cluster on Patrick's black MR2, "Patrick, if you want to develope a set of these for the new Corolla my moneys here ready and waiting, will be happy to be used as ginea pig for your tests". The TPots and MR2 did look good all lined up, and I was lucky to be the only TS Corolla for most of the day, till a very smart looking grey one turned up with great body kit and wild twin exhaust, I was going for a TTE twin, but after speaking with Jerry I will prolly go for the Power Flow now will let you all know soon <_< Paul showed up just after lunch with a very nice "highly polished" red TS Corolla, and we had a good chat. Had a look around the museum some great cars and exhbits in there., and even got change of a fiver for a cup of tea, sandwich and scone, &#33;Removed&#33; amazed at that :D Hope to see you all again soon maybe the 5th Rhaines :)
  20. Hi Pegasus,, your car looks very good, I think the TTE front spoiler will add to its looks,,,look forward to seeing new pics :)
  21. well i still think i'd consider them for my TSport ,,,,,and would not let Mr P put me of a Lexi next time round
  22. hi paeddy, hope we can get those lights here in the uk, i'd have some for my TSport
  23. hi guys,, best i've had was around 36ish on a long run, which i think is quite good as most of it was m/way 80+, my normal trips to and from work 12 miles each way are on some nice b roads, so i get very low 20's worst ever was 18 mph and almost a tank full used, but it was fun driving that way lol
  24. hi pegasus, just been to check for you,,,all across the front its about 155mm, but just on the return to the front wheels it drop a little lower to about 140-145mm, hope this helps Jake
