Haha, that's not yet decided bro. Gotta do a bit of convincing for that. But dad has an acquaintance who owns a car accessories shop near Milan Subway. I actually don't know much about it. What is the use of a projector in xenons? Pardon my ignorance but I guess the incoming traffic gets sorta blinded if there aren't any projectors.

Aha! I was literally JUST wondering where NC was, the moment I saw the pics.

Did the 30k servicing yesterday since the car had run about 28k kms. Dad took it to Millennium Toyota at Thane. The service there was very good. Apart from the normal servicing, we had to replace the engine belt since it was wearing out (3.5k). There was a slight leak in the A/T gearbox fluid leak. There was squeak coming out from the front suspension when driven at a low speed (<10 kmph). They removed the suspensions but couldn't figure out the problem with it. After they reattached back, there wasn't any noise coming. The total cost of the servicing came to 7k.

Went for a drive to Gateway and just reached home

wonder how come I missed this thread, thats a lovely car, one of the car I had been searching for a long time. Your post didnt mention that its an AT vehicle, anyway, came to know of the same from the pics.

Isnt airbags standard in the AT corolla ? I thought it would be as this car is the top end model it will come with all the gadgets or is this H3 model ?

The car is good. How was the leakage on gearbox closed ?

Airbags were standard on all Corollas regardless of the trim. I may be wrong w.r.t. the fleet taxi-targeted base version they introduced in the last couple of years before the Altis launch.

Yes, this car does have 2 airbags. Airbags are provided in every trim in Corolla except HE which hardly made any sales. I think they should have given more airbags in the later trims instead of 6 CD changer, etc. This is the H4 model. No idea about the leakage, I guess they might have changed the part which was leaking.

one of my friend has recently purchased Altis 1.8J, he has ABS as standard with no airbags, so I guess airbags is not standard on all models like Honda.
