Remember seeing the Starlet kit being the same. I believe the sway bar is thicker on the Paseo than the 1.3 - if the Corrolla2 or Tercel part numbers are similar they might fit. (they are both Jap/USDM cars).

I remember seeing an anti lift kit on their site I wanted to get when funds allowed I'm sure it was for the Paseo specifically.

Looking very tidy, scrubs up very well!

Considered any visual mods yet?

That's good for 80mph! 47mpg!

So I'll set off at idle rpm and will never go past 1600rpm in town, I'll do 35mph everywhere in 5th. I never slow down for corners and run every amber light I've ever come across. Dip the clutch and let it coast down steep hills. I rev match my shifts down to slow to meet traffic speeds. Heat max, blower off. No AC, boot carpet and rear trim is in my spare room. 55 to 70 on the motorway.

The car will manage even sharp corners up to 65mph with my tyres and suspension so I feel confident to do that all the time.

I doubt I could manage any higher unless I tried better fuel, being that my tyres are spread on 8J alloys - the tyres themselves are rated F for fuel economy (Which I think is bulls**t anyway) and I have a corolla intake and a cone filter. I recon any more MPG would be a push. Would like to play with timing and see if a 98 Octane tune would make it better.

My latest run was 472 miles from brim to worrying low. This turned out to be around 42 litres (or 9 ish gallons) of fuel. Was almost all motorway driving, almost all very slowly, almost all behind articulated lorries on the motorway.

On a calculator that makes a round about MPG of 51.8.

2.5 Litre V6, some fancy multilink suspension all around, interior from a modern Lexus IS and rear centre exhaust.

Shorten the wheelbase between the rear axel and the B pillar, flatten the boot floor and add additional fuel capacity.

Thinner rear lights with a continual rear light below the boot.

In Tropicana please...

I should really wire mine in properly!

Looking very nice! Those door cards really look special now.

Damn! One way to find out.

You'll get it sorted soon I'm sure!

Thanks Guys, Cammy's such a big girl because of her diet.

Mainly current 2 Litre Golf's and E90 320i's - She always gets the best reaction out of the Ztec Fiesta crowd though, I'm not sure what performance advantage having a mismatched red roof and door mirrors might give you?

It's a special kind of street justice putting a 16,000 hot hatch in your rear view mirror in a 1600 Automatic Saloon with a sailors hat on the parcel shelf.

For a little while I had a "New Driver Caution!" warning badge in the back window.

It looks straight and true, it'll come back looking like it has rolled out of the factory!

You've got some very tasteful mods! Square plates too!

I'm resisting heavily the urge to make jokes about the bright red thing in your passenger foot-well.... I suppose it is in case of emergency?  ;D
