    OK so not to sure which Gen my 'rolla is compared to yours as I'm from South Africa and not alot of our models look like yours. Think it the 8th Gen.

    So here is my Ride.
    Toyota Corolla
    2002 - AE111
    1.6i GLS - 4aFe
    K&N Ram Induction kit
    Viper Branch
    Custom LED Brake lights
    HID H4 6000K Head lights

    I wish. As I stay on the Plots I need her to be in 4x4 mode.
    Will be looking at a Sunroof midyear, Stratos300.
    I'm looking for that body kit you have on yours though, including the rear window spoiler.
    Also need to finish off the LED lights on the corner units.

    Is it possible to explain what part or characteristics of my Ride makes it 8.5 and 7 Gen?
    Here in SA, this is how they were made from 2000-2003 and the mighty 20V engine models of the RXi
    Thanks for the compliment.

    Not sure how you see all that from my Avatar though. ;)
    Google Rxi corolla on images and you could see what my model looks like.

    No the black strips are door moldings to prevent severe dents from people opening their doors when parked next to you
    The circled thingies are sidemarkers

    Well, to me (with a 7th gen), it looks like the 8th gen Corolla (not 8.5). Although it really is neither. But the motor is directly from a 7th gen.

    Thanks guys.

    @Press22 - Them Side indecator lights. Most cars on SA have them
    @roachrolla - Really just looking for the side skirts(apron) your car has. Looks like a TOM's kit.

    @Gold94corolla - I am in search of this lip instead of the one for the GTEC Kit

    You did go a bit over the top with your first ride, but would have been cool with the Indian crowd in Durban...maybe.

    Here is a closer look at that Fog light.

    I'm glad someone pointed out that the former owner of a hybrid Toyota/Subaru/BMW with 23 headlights and paint as patchy as mine is talking about how a Corolla "should be clean". LOL

    haha, I know I'm the biggest hypocrite when I say that! But I learned my lesson... and slowly, I was undoing all the crazy stuff I had on there. If the car hadn't died from rust and a blown motor, it would have been back to stock eventually (at least without non-Corolla parts on it).

    Hi, nice corolla btw. I hope you can find all of the trim pieces you are looking for. They might be really tough to find. Also, Russian was totally wrong. most of the body and the interior parts are from the usdm 8th-8.5 gen corolla. The only thing that makes it 7th gen is the motor. everything else is pretty unique including the rear end, although the headlights remind me of an 8th gen. Here is a pic of a nice subtle version of your car.
