I believe this is what it means

CE- Cheap Edition
LE- Luxury Edition
S- Sport
XRS- Xtreme Racing Sporty-looking one

I'm sure you all took that serious for a moment.

Thumbs up

Just got this 2003 Corolla S. Did the windows 30/15 and put a set of Michelins on it. Did the clock fix this afternoon. Great driving car. I have had it 3 days and I love it already.

The day I got it:



Today:





Thinking about doing some other stuff. We'll see. Great forum BTW.

I finally lowered my 07 CE. I used B&G springs because my daughters drive it mainly so I didn't want it much lower. The drop was 1.6" & looks much better then the OEM ride height.

Before.......


After install & before driving it any distance. My daughters been using it the past couple of days.

Like I said, my daughters are using it so I didn't want it much lower. It looks 100% better then it did before. I was down at the local Safeway next to a stock 9th gen & the difference is night & day. I don't like the cars nearly as low as many of you do anyway. If I were using it I may have put on H&R race springs since I like the look of those from my friends 9th gen but not with my girls using it. I will see if it settles a little more after a few weeks of driving it.

As far as the handling though it's a day & night difference & feels so much better now then the OEM springs.

I agree, I've always been of the mindset that function > form.
