The de-Ascent-ifying of Marvin continues - brand new genuine foglights and surrounds (from the top-spec Levin), everything was pre-wired so just needed the relay (installed ages ago when we had the dash apart) and combination switch. Globes are selective-yellow Osram Fogbreakers.
Also finally got around to getting the black steering wheel controls w/ the hands free buttons installed on the ZRE wheel, I probably still prefer the silver but the blacks are growing on me.
Quite possibly due to the US-market technically being a different chassis to here. Our 10th-gen Corollas are ZRE15x (the Euro-style wide-body) whereas the US is ZRE14x (a wide-body version of the narrow-body JDM series, also in SE Asia). Hubs are definitely different regardless too because they ran 5x100 whereas ours are 5x114.3.
Certainly food for thought. Quite likely that someone may release a conversion kit for the Camry. Then it may become more of an affordable option to consider when the engine and transmission have expired. At the moment, some enthusiasts have converted some classic cars to being EV under the hood.
The exhaust on my Aurion is very quiet barely louder than the stock, lucky to be noticed. On hearing it you would think it was stock. That is why I went for the large anti drone Berklee sports mufflers as I want the car to be quiet but a little bit more power and better fuel economy.
I agree with your analogy, nothing worse than a raspy loud 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder engine.
