  1. People who think this car is at all similar to HSV and FPV products obviously have little understanding of the vehicle architectures. Also, forget what youv'e been fed by the Toyota marketing machine, it's not about KW kids, it's about Nm.
  2. I've still got this problem on my car, and no 'voltage stabilising electro supercharger' is going to fix it. It's a combination problem. - Engine idle calibration. - Mount stiffness/design - Body modal alignment Toyota's *****-poor development is to blame for this and all we can do is live with it.
  3. Who was the courier company? I'm not sure, I just got a call that "a whole bunch of crap" was waiting for me at reception. Where u located? is bill doing the sydney orders again? Port Melbourne. I got sent m_lukes kit as well so read your pm's m_luke. I bet you're itching to put them on now! Trust me, when you hit that first corner after installation you'll realise it was well worth the wait :D Remember! Have the bolts tightened with a rattle gun to avoid squeeks and knocks later on. :) I was planning on using a torque wrench to tighten the bolts on the front struts to spec (39nm) then use a rattle gun on the bolts in the rear for the stabi bar. The front should be alright at spec right? And you're right, I'm itching pretty bad, but will probably wait till the weekend to do the rear bar. The front is definately going on tonight though :P

  6. Well my package arrived today!!! I'll post after everything's installed which hopefully won't be too long.
  7. If you're maintaining speed, it's most probably diff whine. My 1ZZ has minor diff whine at about 58 km/h. This is deemd an acceptable level for this model - I just turn the music up.
  8. Tell your girlfriend to stop farting in the car! :P jokes
  9. They're a switching to a multi-link rear suspension system for next Corolla.
  10. Too bad we had that damn MySQL server crash on Monday! :P
  11. With the high H-point of the Corolla seats, doesn't it make it difficult to reach to a lower shifter?
  12. No it's not the same group buy from last year <_< This year actually and I would say it started in january. All should be delivered in the next week or so as Bruce has suggested :D Yeah you're right, i just remember that 5-8 page discussion thread in the corolla forum that started November last year attemping to start organising this group buy. Thanks for the update Bruce, much appreciated!
  13. Nope, this is the same group buy from last year. Anyone got any updates?

    HID kit

    I just installed the kit I bought off ZAV yesterday. It's true it is damn bright, but I love it. I just need to get the levelness set correctly. I attached my left ballast to the side of my battery with some double sided tape. The right ballast I used one of the mounting brackets and a spare hole in the body on the suspension tower just behind the power steering fluid. I'll also post pics shortly.
