    Default Did Indus motor ever import corolla?

    Hi friends..

    My friend has a corolla, the ever-hit indus shape, 1999 April model, XE, White car with black bumpers, Non-crystal lights. He says its Japan assembled, i dint agree.. He says indus motor company used to import corollas on customer demand. I dont think japan manufactured this shape till 1999.. Kindly share your knowledge.

    yes thr is a difference... cars made fr japan hv EE on th chasis, its goin on since long, i hd it in my 88 corolloa and in my 93... cars made in japan and exported hv a single E on chassis... and i dont hv much knowledge abt the local ones... bt one thing is fr sure, indus is assembling since 94... and a good car importer can gv u a final verdict regarding chassis thing... thy look at the chassis and knw tht whether its the one made fr japan, or by japan fr the rest of the world...

    Just wanted to add ... even if it was imported, it must be pre used as this model was phased out in JP in 93/94 ... only the station wagon version of this shape was produced till 2001/2 and was killed when the "X" version was launched in JP.

    they infact did import !


    i have seen for myself cars having japanese invoices, ususally the color schemes of such vehicles were either Torquoise Green or Sea Green. The other basic colors were also imported. Ur friens is rite and also the CKD kits used to get imported and hence the older vehicles were damn good. Now thanks to lahore local vendor and cheap china parts.

    (1)Indus motor imported corollas during 1993-94.
    (2)The model codes for toyotas eg ae86, rt40, st185, etc are more than just codes for country of origin. It works something like this. If we talk about an ae86 corolla, the "ae86" translates to:
    A=the engine code
    E=Chassis code
    8=model generation
    6=model revision
    So basically, an ae86 corolla uses a 4A engine, has an E chassis, is the 8th gen corolla and has been revised for the 6th time.

    (3)Just check if the engine is a 2E or a 4A-FE. If it's a 2E, its paki assmebled. If its the 4A, its jdm.
