  1. Welcome, and cheers for viewing my build thread! I bought this car in May '15 and didn't really plan on doing any mods to it, but as we all know, things often don't stay standard for very long. I've always liked these cars, so when I finally had the chance to buy one I opted for this '06 SX6 Sportivo model. It came with 18" TRD wheels, but apart from that it was all stock. It's not very often you see modified Aurions here in New Zealand so it leaves people wondering what the hell it is, while still blending in as a family sedan at the same time. The car now wears 19x9.5" Vertini Magic concave wheels, along with an array of other mods that contribute to the overall look of the build. This post will stay updated with the most recent mods & photos, but the rest from post #2 onward are in chronological order. So far the spec list is as follows: Engine: * Stock 2GR-FE V6 3500cc 24v Dual VVT-i engine. * Custom made 3" cold air intake setup. * Simota extra long pod filter behind LH fog light. * Potent Booster throttle controller. * Aurion 2012+ GSV50 full metal VVT-i oil line. * Aurion 2012+ GSV50 full metal oil cooler line. * TRD style billet aluminium oil cap. * Custom bronze carbon fiber wrapped engine cover. * Large 2L polished aluminium oil catch tank.

Interior: * Eonon GA5164F Android GPS/USB/Bluetooth headunit. * Aftermarket Bluetooth mic mounted in roof console. * Genuine Toyota optional LED blue footwell lights. * Toyota Blade Master G leather steering wheel. * Lexus IS-F genuine Magnesium working paddle shifters. * Genuine Toyota optional carbon fibre steering wheel logo insert. * Custom bronze carbon fibre wrapped centre console. * Custom bronze carbon fibre wrapped A/C controls. * Aurion ZR6 silver door trim and chrome handles. * Chrome trim around silver dashboard inserts. * Aurion Grande carpeted centre boot trim. * Genuine Toyota optional rubber moulded boot tray. * Aftermarket 6x9 to 6.5" front speaker adapter pods. * Lexus GS450h Mark Levinson 6.5" front speakers. * Aftermarket white LED door courtesy light units. * Aurion Grande auto dimming rear-view mirror. * Valentine One radar mirror mount & hardwire kit. * Novatek A118 HD dashcam concealed behind mirror. * UltraGauge OBDII display unit (speed, RPM, temps etc). * Altezza aluminium footrest pedal (to match OEM pedals). * Carbon fiber dash vent surrounds.

  2. This is for the 2003/2004 pre-facelift Toyota Corolla Sportivo (6 speed manual). When the clutch is replaced, does the exhaust get moved and/or loosen in order to have the work done. I am aware that gearbox has to be removed and reassembled, refit the drive shaft and wheels, but what about elements of the exhaust? Reason why I am asking, is that I just had a new clutch installed on my stivo (by a highly regarded clutch and brakes shop in Melbourne), and for some reason when i drove off, which started as a small, and then ended up being a large squeaking noise coming from underneath the car. I suspect its the exhaust. Cheers
  3. G'day everyone! Never thought after many years I'd be back behind the wheel of a Toyota but what do you know it's all come full circle. After having a gold 2007 Aurion Sportivo ZR6 for a few years. Old Members Ride Here! I said farewell to the TOCAU community and since then I'd gone down the european path with a Mk5 Golf GTI, then down the Subaru owners path with a 2005 Liberty Sedan and now since all those cars became money pits. I'm back to good 'ol reliable town with a 2005 Camry Sportivo MCV36R! It's good to be back behind the wheel of a Toyota once more! :D Bought in March 2018. Toyota Camry Sportivo V6 MCV36R Approx 224,000km on the clock. 5spd Manual Transmission. Completely bone stock (this is something I would like to change a bit. Maybe just give the car a bit of a more meaty sound with the exhaust. Nothing too major.) except the radio which it came with a Kenwood Single DIN but I've since installed a full Android Double DIN based unit in it. (I can't live without my GPS. I'm horrible like that!) Definitely gonna get myself more active on here again back like the old days! I also realised I only have the one photo of it so far. So i'll fix that in the coming days. But for now. Have a backside shot. :P
  4. Hey guys, Was wondering if I could drop a question about the C-One Motorsport rear wing tips / garnishes that are discontinued, and whether they still pop up on ebay or such. I'm from the UK and am looking to do a Runx (zze123) rear end conversion, and finding a pair of wing tips to go with the spoiler would be great. Cheers, Sam (resonanceuk)
  5. hey guys. been wanting an aurion since they first came over here. i was working at a toyota dealer in brisbane and got to go for a test ride in a presara. so was walking through the toyota dealership looking at camrys as my ute had blown an engine. when a aurion sitting the corner of the lot caught my eye. had only just come in that day and the sales guy didnt know anything about it. sat in it and test drove it and fell in love. so now i am the proud owner of a 2016 aurion sportivo. got it in early january this year and am loving it. been a holden and nissan man all my life but this car has really blown me away. bit of a long story but thought i would share the special moment hahaha
  6. So i have a 04 sportivo corolla, pretty low kms 119,000 kms, it drives nice but i want some more power, have put injen cold air intake in and an exedy heavy duty clutch ( was having some issues with clutch before hand) does anyone have some ideas for a bit more response and power without having to turbo or supercharge it? Also a mechanic said i should avoid changing 1st and 2nd in 8000kms+ does this sound about right? I don't really thrash this car but when i want to put my foot down i definatly want more response in the lower rev range, and more overall power. Thanks guys
  7. hi guys ive been a long time lurker of this forum since i purchased a 2005 corolla sportivo. it's been approximately 2 months since my lift stopped working and i've spent nearly $2000 with still no luck and i'm getting really desperate. i have tried almost everyone suggestion here on this forum and other websites with no luck. would really appreciate if you took the time to read and help me out. when i purchased the car it was running perfectly. it was on 160k kms and clutch felt good, the car felt very responsive and lift kicked in really hard. fast forward a month later i noticed it was leaking oil. it was a small oil leak and i took it to a mechanic to fix it for me right away. he told me it was a timining case oil leak and he replaced the timing case gasket, rocker cover gasket, crankshaft ceil, manifold gasket and exhaust gasket. also put in a new radiator and water pump. now he also told me he couldnt find a rocker cover gasket as toyota had none available and it would be a minimum 2 week wait to order from overseas. i said that's fine.. but he called me the next day saying he found one and the car was ready. sounded fishy? but whatever, i took my car for a spin and it felt like ****. big flatspot in acceleration under 4k rpm and the lift didnt kick in. sometimes it would but it was really weak. no sort of 'kick', just a smooth transition. i read on a separate post to: - Check Lift bolts. Very common on the preface lift 03/04 models for them to wear down quicker, although the design has since been corrected. - Check oil level, make sure your engine has enough oil. - Check the VVTLi solenoid as the filter/screen inside of it can get clogged and cause lift to not engage, see below: so i replaced lift bolts. no luck. i did an engine flush and changed the oil. no luck. however i realised the oil level light stays on for about 5 seconds when i turn the car on then it turns off. not sure if that's normal or if i haven't noticed that before? cleaned out the ocv solenoid screen. it was abit sticky. still no luck. So everything sort of went to **** after i got the car back from fixing the oil leak. would really appreciate some suggestions because it's been 2 months and it's really bugging me and i'm getting really desperate. i've taken it to about 5 mechanics who have absolutely no clue what could be wrong.
  8. Seeing as I haven't introduced her yet, meet Niko Niko! Or Niko or NiNi for short. It's a weird name but here me out. Toyota is a Japanese brand (obviously) Niko/Niko Niko is the Japanese word for Smile/Smiley The Aurion always looks like it's got a smile on it's face I'm also Asian and what some might call a "Weeaboo" Anyway, this is my car and she is very fast considering she looks like what a grandparent would drive. I've owned this car for a short time (Less than a month) and it's honestly one of the best purchases I've made! I love it, my friends love it! Commodore drivers hate it and that's okay with me! I'm not sure where I want to go with this car (in terms of build) I was thinking something that I could bring to meetups and have it turn a few heads so if there's anyone within that department let me know!

  10. Hey guys, Im currently looking for any recommendations on where is the best place to get lowered springs or coilovers for a 2005 Toyota Corolla Levin.

Ive been thinking on getting Kings Lowered Springs for a while but deep in my mind I still want some coilovers. If anybody has an idea or is selling what I need above. Please contact me. Your help would mean a lot! Cheers.

  13. Hey everyone, new to the corolla scene here, i've owned a 2005 Corolla Ascent Hatch ZZE122R for around a year now and was just wondering if it is possible to modify it and make it look nice and unique in a way? you know like the usual, body kit, exhaust, wheels, suspension setup and if worth it, some performance parts. I'm not sure whether the car is compatible with the usual 2005 levin/sportivo parts, so it would be much appreciated if someone can help me out! Mind me if this sounds all stupid lol. Much appreciated! cheers ;)
  14. Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, but wanted to get some opinions on lowering my facelift levin, I was thinking superlows, but wanted to see if any of you guys have lowered your rollas/levins and could give me your opinion on what height, brands & stuff to go with, also if you have any pictures of your car if you have done so? The cheaper the option the better, keen to see some modified/lowered levins, thanks for any help guys
  15. Hi guys Does anyone know where I can find a cargo mat to fit my 05 Corolla Sportivo? Thought someone may be able to give me a heads up besides going thru a dealership, which I'm not sure if they would still be able to order any.
  16. Hi, everybody. I lost the only key to my 2006 Aurion Sportivo ZR6. It has a keyless ignition and remote doors but the driver-side door can be opened with a key. All the windows are shut and doors locked. I've gone into two different Toyota dealerships. The first one said it would cost $1600~ for two new keys. They would organise a third party to code the new keys. The second dealership said that some computer chips would have to be replaced and it would cost $3000~. So, then I called up various locksmiths around Melbourne. One locksmith said he could cut a new key and program a new remote for $600~. I told him it was keyless ignition with remote doors. He said no problem. Another locksmith said he needs the keycode number. Don't know what that is. Basically, I'm quite confused. Who is telling the truth? I don't know what to do. For this specific model of Aurion, is it possible for a non-Toyota locksmith to cut and code a new key and remote? Has anybody here experienced a similar situation, if so, how did you resolve it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  17. Hi everyone I've just seen a light coloured oil stain on the garage floor, so I've checked under the car and can see the oil is dripping from the base of the gearbox. Looking closely under the bonnet it looks moist around where the gearbox oil fill hole is. Has anyone else experienced or know of this oil leak? Would be great to hear from anyone with more info and advice :)

  19. Hi Guys, Tried to do some research but couldn't find much, does anyone on here know if its a simple task to change the side mirrors to automatically fold when my 2012 Aurion ZR6 is locked? Cheers! Edit: GSV50R
  20. Hi guys It's been a while but thought I would post a thread to get some expert help from current and previous owners of the mighty 2ZZGE. I noticed a couple of drops of oil on the garage floor and had my mechanic look under the car where he said he could see oil around the water pump. He said it's not an urgent fix and will more than likely stop but could come back. Well, that's exactly what happened...it went away and now it's come back. So my questions are: Is it likely that the water pump can leak oil? Has anyone else had experienced this same issue? What kind of costs would I be looking at for the OEM part and labour? Thanks in advance
  21. Hi everyone, My '04 sportivo has a slow-ish leak, it seems like its below or near the PCV valve but I wanted to get your opinion on what it is and how to fix it. I have about 195,000 kms on it, and need to do an oil change anyway so figured I may as well fix this beforehand. An image album is linked here The last image is probably the most helpful, by my guess. A key thing to note is that I dont really know what I'm looking at, like names of stuff. I've done a rocker cover gasket replacement in an SR20 with the help of a friend, and will probably get his help again but hoping to get a head start on what the issue is. thanks!

  23. Scratching noise when the clutch is released, goes away when clutch pedal is engaged, happens in all gears (same noise but louder when driving slow in 1st,2nd and 3rd), all gears shift perfectly, i thought it might be the throwout bearing but i watched a video and its a totally different sound, it has 207000ks, new clutch, machined flywheel, new driveshaft seals and new gear oil at 199446ks, please help, thanks.
  24. Hi all, this is my first toyota it's an 08 Aurion Sx6
  25. Hi Guys, I drive a 2004 Camry Sportivo 4cyl 2.4L (XV30) ACV36R. I had been waiting to hit the mileage amount of 157,500km (not the date of 22/7 - 2 months ago) to get it serviced next (along with my tax return) when at 155,700km disaster struck! I had a slow oil leak which I had spotted but benig naive thought it would be ok until the service. I was coming back from the Sunny Coast to Brissie on the Bruce and started to hear the dreaded 'knocking' sound coming from the engine. I pulled into a servo and it just so happened 2 seperate mechanic pulled up in the time I was there and diagnosed it as a bottom knock, most likely the bearings and a rod are shot. I was told to go to all jap auto parts and completely replace the engine. Because I only drove a couple clicks before I stopped driving the car is it at all salvageable? I saw a youtube vid of a guy pouring in 2 liquids which repaired the sound. Otherwise, what sort of cost can i expect for a new engine and labour? Also, if i go to the wreckers would the 3L v6 engine fit in the bay, as an alternative? TY in advance.
