My 1.4 rolla thread was created by jdmcorolla
Hi guys, the names Rashed and i have been on here for a little while now so i thought i should get a progress log up and show you guys and galz what i drive and what is known as my pride and joy lol
its my 2003 E12 Toyota corolla 1.4 vvt-i 5 door hatch....nothing like a hot hatch or even a warm hatch, just a 1.4 but i love it :D
i got it in 2010 when i was 17 and it looked like this:





its a T3 model so came with standard alloys and front fogs including colour coded mirrors, handles and door strips exterior wise but that's about it however it was a upside for me at the time compared to a T2 version
then the mods started with tints, LED exterior lighting and 8000k HID's, K&N 57i kit, drilled front discs, T sport wheels and a strut bar and came to look like this:











i was happy with the car at that point but started to hate the back <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
it seemed like something was missing and then this came along:



a few JDM mods came to mind after a while
wind deflectors, JDM yellow fog tint, JDM style number plate







i put on a genuine T sport back box which made the car sound better without being OTT and also looked better






i did a bit of engine dressing up, custom intake lol


silvatec bulbs to get rid of the egg



interior LED footwells



also installed a pioneer head-unit and a 10" sub which is more that enough for me :)
most recent mod is the front badge less grille which looks awesome :D







plans now are to lower it now as i have the springs and debadge the rear and paint the rear logo satin or matte black, also maybe change the wheels to a different colour but not too sure yet, put the heat shield on around the induction filter to reduce heat soak when driving around, paint the calipers red

thanks for having a look guys and any ideas and input welcome :D
hope to see you all at the future meets soon whenever i have time to attend them

lol i actually like the sound of that, will have to get some quotes and ideas how the roof should be done e.g shiny black like you said or....

i had some LED fogs before Woody as you can see in the pics but then decided to tint the fogs yellow lol.....but i have been thinking lately that i might go back to the LED fogs however i do like the yellow fogs as its quite unique and stands out and also im not getting wheels for her cuz it will cost a bit and i think im getting rid of it next year so there's no point really and also im happy with the ones i have
but i am lowering the car for sure....very soon hopefully :)

there is this splitter that can be found on eBay which looks decent but i aint a big fan lol....might change my mind though after i drop her a bit :)
