    corolla t sport
  1. i have some tein springs off my pre f/l, they lowered mine 50mm front and 25mm rear, some pics are on my profile.
  2. i bought my t-sport feb 2009 for a decent price on a decent mileage, it was bought through a private sale off pistonheads. a year on and i came to trade the car in against a new vehicle and when the garage did a hpi check much to my shock it came up on toyota finance!!!! the first thing i did was track down the person i bought it off, he admited that he did still have outstanding finance on the car and admitted not telling me when i went to view the car, he stated he will carry on paying the finance on the car and was not willing to clear it in a lump sum. in theory its partly my fault for not
  3. i have just done 220 miles in 2 days all on a-roads, the light was on yesterday and i put £25 in at 117.9 per litre normal unleaded, i just got home and checked. i had done 220.9 miles to £25 petrol at average of 43mpg the best i have ever had
  4. msprince that looks a hell of a lot better than the one i got, as i said it has marked my spoiler not just one mark, 3!!!!! where did you get yours from i think it would be cheaper than a towbar. thanks
  5. i have been looking on e bay and places now for towbars then get a carrier that will fit to that, does any one have any pics of a t sport with a tow bar fitted just so i know its not going to look odd/ugly with one on? thanks
  6. i have got one of the racks that fit on the boot lid and i really dislike it due to the bike handles and brake levers scratching and digging into the spoiler. been looking on ebay and a tow bar is around £120 any one think this is a good deal? thanks
  7. is there such thing as a bike rack that is made fora corolla t-sport or is it a case of having a tow bar fit? any help would be much appriciated, thanks
  8. i bought my t-sport in feb 2009 and the milage was on 58000, i have still got the car and is now on 86000. in the time of owning the car i have changed the discs and pads on the rear once, the pads on the front once, an o/s/r brake caliper and thats it apart from the obvious tyres which i put a set of toyos on when i first bought it and now run federal "ditch finders" i would definatly recommend one of these cars to any one as i think most people who own one would, in my opinion a very good looking underestimated car that are bulletproof "touch wood"
  9. as a first port of call i would find and replace the wiper motor relay, just a thought as i thought it might help.
  10. by what i can see the top link is for 5 door and the bottom link is for 3 door
  11. i must admit it has smelt all the time i have owned the car in this situation, same on my previous ts aswell, it was just the biting point and the milage that was a little concern i got told off my garage boss that he would wait till it starts to either slip(which it isnt at the moment)or if it goes totally! i cant do with out a car though so i cant really just wait till it goes!
  12. hi,i would avoid spending £80 on discs and pads, to be honest 15% isnt that bad if you have any concerns i would either get a garage to just have a check over of the front brakes (pads, discs, caliper pistons, sliders etc) if no problems just ask them to put a little copper grease on pads where they go into the pad carrier, or to save hassle if you are mechanically minded i would do it yourself. hope this helps cheers pal, i am going to get the car serviced in two weeks, will ask the garage to take a look at the brake. definatly save you £80 any more, put it towards your service
  13. i was just wondering if any one has had there t sport clutch changed, i think mine is due. has any one bought the kit from mr.t? where is the best place to get a clutch kit from? the problems i am getting with mine is as follows:- the biting point is now when i take my foot off the pedal it smells in traffic, when on and off the clutch a few times the car has done 86000 miles and still on original clutch has anyones clucth lasted longer than this?
