If I'm being honest, I think the Mapisa kit that provides a front lip, side skirts, rear bumper lip(s), and trunk lip doesn't look bad for the most part but the ones for the S and XSE models is lacking. I have seen headlight and tail light options now though so guess thats good.

Whereas with Civics, the Corollas direct and only real competitor, has boat loads of options out there for everything almost immediately. Granted, we don't need lots of performance mods but even options to do motor swaps would be nice. I think these are too new for that kind of attention though and Toyota enthusiasts are more into stancing Corollas than making them it'll probbaly never happen really.

I wish Toyota would get back to more performance options for all models rather than just for the coupe (soon to be plural with the new Supra) and for the trucks.

And yeah, I follow him on Insta and was saddened to see that had happened to him. But, glad he got the Lexus he did. He's talking about a full stanced, VIP look I'm pretty stoked to see how he does it.
If we're taking about engine related mods, we do have options with MonkeyWrench Racing and even as far as tuning, OVTuned will be releasing that as well. Like I said, it's not as big as say the Civic's aftermarket because the Corolla's market isn't primarily meant for modifications or racing. However, for those who want to mod their Corolla, there are options but you'll have to find them and be able to pay for it. On the topic of aftermarket aero and bodykits, I know of Mapisa and a few other companies that make aftermarket body parts for the Corolla but again, it is something rather than absolutely nothing.

Same, I'll be looking at his progress as well.

Most of the decent parts aren't available locally...Southeast Asia is a hotbed for Corolla stuff, because the culture and what not favors it there locally, though probably because WRXs, Type Rs are either too expensive or not available.

There is no such thing as a generic car enthusiast, but certain platforms are more popular because they were engineered to appeal to a more enthusiastic buyer. Corollas were engineered to appeal to a regular car audience, which is non-enthusiastic, and the way they are perceived in North America is that they're great commuter cars, but not sport compacts. Hence, why few companies bother to develop parts for them (cough TRD). Having cheaper mods was what made the Civic popular, unlike the Corolla. I grew up in the 90s (pre Initial D) when they got popular, and that was why the masses drove Hondas while Toyotas were largely ignored and MR2s and Supras were out of reach for most young 'tuners'.
Yeah, if you want to get these parts, you'll have to find a way to get them but my point is that they are out there. I think "generic car enthusiast" is the wrong term that I was looking for. What I meant is most enthusiasts would prefer to go with a car that already has a sporty or fun character with it or has that aftermarket which they can choose from such as the Civics and the Impreza's. However, there are people like us who would like to mod our Corolla's but in order to do so, we'd have to put in the extra effort to find and get those parts.

Lower Grille Color

Big thanks to anybody who will do this!

I absolutely despise the lower grille shape on my 2018 LE. I can't change the shape (other than painting parts of it to match the car, changing the perception of the shape). But it seems easier and likely better to just paint the whole thing.

I'd like to see what it would look like if I were to paint it:

  1. Chrome (seems most likely)
  2. Gold (Gold "grille" for going ghetto, LOL)
  3. Silver to match the car (doesn't sound that good, but curious to see.)
