  1. yeah i will do, guy seems really friendly and genuine says he will accept £6200 but no less.... 6200 seems a decent price no? how long do you recon t sports stay on the market for? only 10 face lifts on sale in the uk at the moment is that becuasr they sell fast or just cos there arent many around?
  2. Hi guys My brother is looking at buying a T sport there are a few on autotrader just wanted to see what you guys thought of this one specifically? the descri[ption looks like its in perfect condition and has almost a year warranty too... http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201024361502872/sort/priceasc/usedcars/price-from/5000/price-to/7000/model/corolla/make/toyota/page/1/postcode/w60ph/keywords/t%20sport/radius/60?logcode=p any thoughts would be appreciated....
  3. thats really helpful buddy, ill get it up as soon as possible....
  4. where abouts do you cut? A rough guide on how to do it would be really appreciated if you have the time?
  5. hmmmm... you have to actually cut the air box up? im not sure thats a great idea.. would like to sell the car as standard when i do get rid or at least go back if i want to.... MsPrince is that the case? you hae to cut the piping that goes intot he air box and simply stick the cone on the end of the cut pipe?
  6. msprince can you advise on what u bought and how you went about putting that together?
  7. that actually looks alright.... sorry if i sound surprised, i was expecting it to look rubbish!! what did you buy to sort that out and how did you go about fitting it? Looks like it would do the job just as well as the more expensive options im guessing?
  8. Hi guys, i have been waiting for a cheap typhoon to come up on ebay for a about a month and become bored of waiting... But still i cant spend 200 quid on the kit... I was wondering if there are any cheaper alternatives that i could get instead and sacrifice a bit of quality? I hear a lot of people talk about the apexi ones but cant see anywhere that sells them? If anyone can recommend a cheaper alternative that would be great...
  9. HI been looking for an inductions kit for 05 corolla t sport, typhoons are too expensive brand new, anyione have one on the cheap or a similar quality induction kit that fits t sport? Thanks

    Typhoon Kit

    Typhoon Kit

    Marc, thats really helpful, aswered all questions pretty comprehensively, i dont tend to drive aggressively unless i have a wide open road with not many other people around so driving at 30 mph and no noticeable sound diff for me is a bonus... In terms of the maf sensor is it a common problem that it needs extending or is it only some people who have encountered this issue? Are the typhhon kist tyhe same for the face lift and pre face lift? there are two used ones for sale on ebay, one has a red hose and says fits 05 but the other has a silver hose but doesnt say model or which year it came off.... again thyanks for your help its really appreciated....

    Typhoon Kit

    Hi all, I am intereested in buying one of these as a lot of t sports i have seen on here and the net seems to have an induction kit installed, I have never modded a car before so i have no idea where to start... I know that the kit will add noise but will it make me sound like a chav driving a nova or something or is the soudn a little more refined on the t sport? Will i notice any difference in driving at all? Can i fit the kit myself? Is it safe to buy a used one? Is the typhoon ther best to get bearing in mind i want to fit it myself? Does anyone have any guides to fitting it to a t sport? Sorry for all the questions, i have tried a google search on fitting but cant really find much.... And finally does anyone have one they want to sell to me? Thanks all!!
  15. JUst spoke to the dealer, was really helpful... said that if it is a fauklt of the clutch then it will be repaird on warranty anyway so i just njeed to get it seen by them... and also said that i can take it to any Currie Motors which is great as there is one near my house.... Found them to be really friendly actyually very good personal service... maybe its because they dont often sell t sports i guess so he remembers me??
