  1. The rear of my bonnet (near the windscreen) vibrates quite noticeably at anything over about 80kms. I bought the car seccond hand so can't be sure it hasn't been crashed, so didn't mention it to Toyota whilst under warranty.
  2. I ended up selling my 2003 Corolla Sportivo before fitting these bits, so I now have for sale the following parts: 1. Whiteline rear sway bar $200 + postage 2. Eibach Springs - SOLD 3. 16" x 7" deep dish mags with near new tyres. These are a five spoke Lenso RS5 wheel that has a black centre with a deep dish chrome rim. Fitted to a Corolla Sportivo, they widen the track 25mm per side = 50mm. Combined with grippy tyres, these provided a huge improvement in handling, without the harsh ride of 17" or 18" wheels.They are multifit 4 stud, and also fit TS Astra, etc. 205/50/16 Tyres - 3 x Bridgest
  3. Thanks for those who offered genuine help, but I will probably never know the cause because the car has just been sold! It was a fun car, but ultimately, this problem and not great ergomics (flat seats and lack wheel reach adjustment) led to me deciding to hang onto my other car.

  5. Hi, Im new here. I recently bought a silver 2003 Corolla Sportivo with 144Kkms. It is a fun car, but it has a weird grinding noise when riding the clutch, particularly in reverse. The noise is worst when reversing from cold start. It is a kind of TZZZZZ noise that is quite loud once I start to reverse, riding the clutch, though stops once I let the clutch out completely. It is nowhere near as loud when engaging 1st, and can only just be heard if I ride the clutch during 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd gear changes. The gearbox itself seems otherwise OK during normal driving, with possibly only the
  6. Hi, my name is James and I have just purchased my second Toyota. I'm in my 40's and live it Canberra. I am stiill a bit of a hoon at heart. my wife has had a 2009 Kluger KX-R for just over a year. Not surprisingly, it has remained pretty stock. she is very happy with it, though it does have a bit of a thirst the way she drives it! I am thinking of adding some 19" Grande wheels shortly. I have just picked myself up a 2003 corolla Sportivo. I have added some deep dish wheels and am about to do up the suspension. I have ordered a Whiteline rear bar, Eibach springs and am likely going to b
