  1. I'm entering my gti in a classic car run next year, cars need to be registered prior to April 1988. Mine was registered in June of that year so before I fill in the entry form I'm just finding a way of proving when mine was made. I should be fine as despite being registered in June we know full well that the car could have been a few months old at the time.
  2. Is there a way of confirming the month of manufacture of my 1988 Corolla gti?
  3. Hello all, can anyone direct me to a site or help with the specs of Corolla Ae111's ? I'm looking at buying a Sprinter Truneo and need some advice on what to look for, I've heard about the black & silver top engines and how good an upgrade they are for my Corolla Gti. Can I get the engine spec from the chassis number ? Are they all silver or black tops ? Did some of them have the 4AFE engine as well ? any help or pointers would be appreciated, thanks Jerran
  4. Hello, soon to be taking the MR2 roadster abroad and just checking out the bulbs I require ? Any ideas how to replace headlamp ( dipped & main ) bulbs in case I need to ? the car is a 55 plate model
  5. Can anyone help ? I've got a black AE92 Gti and the nearside opening rear window is about to fall out, has anyone got a spare locally ( I'm in Enfield ) that still has both the fixings on it where it bolts to the B pillar ? I seem to remember that these fixings are a little delicate and I think mine are about to give up, thanks Jerran
  6. Found it without even opening the bonnet ( which is handy as my catch is a bit iffy ) any black Corolla Gti's are colour code 204, now just need the weather to warm up so I can attack the tailgate
  7. Can anyone help me with the colour code for my Corolla Gti ? It's black ! In the service book the colour code part was left blank by the dealer, any ideas what the code is or where it's located on the car please ?
  8. My guess would be the windscreen seal, as the car is getting on a bit and I believe the screen is bonded in this bond could be failing. The best way out of it is to have the screen removed and refitted by a pro, though no harm in going round the edge with some black bathroom seal and seeing it that does the trick, it might not look pretty but it might solve the problem, failing that the more expensive option is to move to Spain or maybe Cyprus where the rain isn't an issue !
  9. I'm after a spare key for my AE92 Gti, I know I can go to any key cutters and get one done though I'd like a proper Toyota blank and not one with 'silca' or something similar on it, has anyone any ideas where I can get a blank correct Toyota key from ? Obviously there is no chip in mine as it's that old !
  10. About time I showed mine, all standard apart from Fensport Springs & 185/55/14 tyres, has been round Brands Hatch a few times on trackdays
  11. Thanks for the reply, I'll be keeping my eye out for one
  12. Hello, as per title has anyone got a hardtop for an MR2 they don't need anymore ? Am thinking ahead as have just bought a 55 plate MR2 and the Mrs fancies a hardtop for when winter sets in
  13. Can anyone help ? I'm in the process of tidying up my black Gti. I'm trying to find the correct shade of silver so I can paint the wheels so they look like they did back in 1988. Steel wheel paint is far too dull or dark, have yet to try silver wheels in case it's too shiny. Has anyone painted their wheels before and how did you get the correct Toyota shade ? I'm not building a concours car, just fancy trying to get the factory colour. Or shall I just grab some silver from the paint shop that every car seems to be coated in these days ? Over to you !
  14. If your sure your getting fuel and a spark at the plug how about taking the plugs out and drying them on your gas hob, pop them back in and it might start, the cylinders might be flooded with fuel if you've been trying all day to start it.
  15. Am shortly buying some lowering springs for my AE92 GTI, choices I've got seem to be 30mm, 35mm or 40mm. Anyone got experience of what's too low etc ? Car is running standard alloys and 185/60 tyres and will be tracked soon. Performance centre in Essex are doing kits for around £100, just wondered if anyone out there has any advice ?
