Have got the CAR back . Drove it from Worli to Mulund .
The car is now feeling a LOT more responsive and the breaks FINALLY are providing the much needed stopping power . The only minus point is the Tyres have rolled about 30k kms (205/60 G IIIs) , and are in not so good condition.
And the Rims i.e. painted body colour are gelling up quite well , posting a couple of pics. now , will add a few later on . . .

Karan on the previous pics i did'nt notice the Angle Eyes and TRD grill?

Wait a minute!! This is a bit confusing. Thread was started 23rd September 2007, 12:56 and then i read Karan's thread about the mods including him planing to go back to stock rims but now in body colour and the Angel Eyes and TRD Grill.....Am i missing something here because it could'nt have possibly taken so long for the car to get serviced

BTW Karan the rims in Purple look killer,wicked and definately suits the car's new look. Amazing how a simple colour change can change the entire look and attitude of a car, from stock formal silver to wicked purple street racer.
Waiting for you to put up a pic with a side angle showing the lights, grill and the wheels.

Karan and MODS kindly take notice and clear up the confusion please.

The servicing done in September 2007 was after he had done some mods to the car and after a fresh paint and wax job. Then some time later between September and now he changed over to ANgel eyes.

Now he has changed to stock rims by painting them purple and then the servicing is done. I think that is how it is (Karan, correct me if i am wrong). Soo the servicing done is September and the servicing done now are 2 different ones six months apart

I hope ive put to rest the confusion (Karan, please correct me if i am wrong)

Cheers

Precisely ... the Car was serviced (i.e. 1st servicing) in September '07 .. and then Angel Eyes and Trd Grill was added in an around November. And now the the other stuff was done i.e.

1) Allignment

2) STUDD was broken during the tightneing of the NUT (front left wheel)

3) Stock Rims have to be painted body colour Natural Gloss

4) All four Discs have to be changed + All the Brake Pads (Brakes were down 90%)

5) Power Steering Fluid has to be changed.

I dint want to start a new thread thats why i continued here , but if any one could tell me how to EDIT THE THREAD TITLE ??

One of the better corollas in town! I would get rid of the spoiler though. Looks better without it. Overall, a very nice car.
