    WOW!!!
    Car still looking just as good as a year ago when you got the new rims.
    Still prefer your Factory photoshoot you did. (p51)

    I never got a real answer back regarding the Tires etc, until went and looked back at your posts and converted inch to mm.
    175/45 streched onto a 205/R16 rim
    :p

    As much as I hate to say it, this build is now over and the car is up for sale :(. It's been a very enjoyable 6-years and I've met a huge amount of great people over that time, so I'd just like to say a massive thank you to everybody who has supported this project over the years and has offered their thoughts, opinions and encouragement. Without that, this build likely would've died a long time ago, so cheers! :D. I look forward to seeing what the future holds and the exciting times that are ahead :)

    That sucks. Whats your reason for selling it? Are you keeping the daily or selling that one as well?

    I've never been as attached to a car as I am to this one, so it makes things very difficult, but with 3 kids, only a 2-car garage and other things to save for in the future (wedding, house etc) it's time for the Corolla to move onto a new home. It's been a great run, and one I'll always remember. I sold my orange FX-GT hatchback a few months ago and my new car is a 2006 Toyota Aurion SX6 Sportivo. It's quite a different kettle of fish to the Corolla as it's a much larger vehicle, and packs a 3500cc 2GR-FE Dual VVT-i V6 under the hood.

    Practicality-wise it makes a lot more sense as I can fit all of the kids in it (carseats and all) and it has more than enough power than I'll ever need, while being a lot safer and more modern in the process. It has nothing on the Corolla in terms of quirkiness though and feels a lot more 'generic', but it's my new pride and joy, and one that I'll no doubt keep for many years to come :)

    Nice upgrade. Those 2gr motors are awesome, I wish the Camry v6 came in stick as well as auto. Those motors with a 6 speed flies.
