2006 Corolla XRS
Wow! Never knew the 1.8 looks like a 3.5 v6.I have an interesting story to share with the 10th Gen owners. The other day my future son-in-law and I took our Corolla iM's for a drive. My 17 CSM 6MT and his 18 ESB CVT. We stopped at some waterfalls to hike around when this 2013 Corolla S pulled up with aftermarket alloy wheels so I asked him what else he had done to it. He said nothing because his was special. I asked him in what way and he said it had a V6 in it. SO I asked him if he did it and he said no, it was like that when he bought it. So I asked if the previous owner had done it. And he said no that he had bought it brand new from the dealer that way.
So at this point I said that's weird since the 10th Gen never came with a V6. He said that is why his was special. So I had to see what was going on here. So he popped the hood and I opened it up. Much to his surprise he had a 1.8L 2ZR-FE 4 cylinder! :lol: He knew so little about cars that he didn't even know how to tell the difference. Then says, the salesman at the dealer lied to me!! I asked him how he didn't know just from the power and acceleration and over the 5 years he's owned it he never had a clue.
I thought this was hilarious. You can see his Corolla behind our iM's. I was telling him that he needed to install some Eibach springs with all of that wheel gap! :lol:
