The new M-class looks meatier but somehow the slats in the front grill dont go with the car IMO. I like that shade of maroon though.

I've seen quite a few of these in Kerala,during my last stay there.There was a silver colored one in Calicut, and a dark green (similar to the one in Foby's pics) in Cochin. Lots of Tercels, too.

Can you get spares for these corollas easily?.Although corollas of these period had imported by the dozen to india,the diesels are pretty rare i guess.

You are totally wrong, I have never seen even one petrol engined Imported corolla in Kerala. The spares are available off the rack from Cochin, that is also the reason the corolla engines are a popular transplant for ambassadors here.
