New gen 10 rolla owner...
my name is billy and I just traded in my gen6 Camry with V6 for a 2010 Corolla S. Why? Because a change in income over the last several months forced me to get a car with a lower payment. Although I loved the camry, I am happy with my Corolla. Its a 5-speed and Im loving having a car that I can shift again.
This is acutally my 2nd corolla. I had a 94 base model with a 3-speed auto and 1.6L engine. The engine sucked by I had tokico blues, H&R springs, an ebay fusb, and an Intrax rear sway bar and the car handled great.
I also learned to drive stick on my brothers AE92 GT-S many years ago. And a good friend of mine recently sold his 85 AE86 that he used to race. Although my gen 10 S isnt as great as those cars, I am looking to do the most I can with it.
I already ordered a used TRD front upper strut bar that I got for a great deal. I plan on eventually installing the TRD rear sway bar as well, along with H&R springs, and a UR rear upper strut bar. Way down the road I would also like to change the wheels and tires (again money is an issue right now) and my ultimate wish list item is the TRD LSD.
In the meantime, I may make some minor interior changes, like new shift and e-brake boots, as well as a new shift knob. I would love to go with a black and red TRD theme, but the seats in my white Corolla S are the black ones with the blue "accents". That really throws off what I want to do, because I dont want to do black, red and blue. Are all sport model seats with those blue dots? Thats my main question for the day.
