    Default My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM)

    Hey guys,


    This is my 1993 Toyota Corolla SE Limited. It's a Japanese import and has all of the features you would expect out of Japan, except it's now a little different from a bog standard grocery getter


    It was completely standard when I bought it, but I've done a number of mods to it over the last 5-years of ownership so far, including a 4A-GE 20v Blacktop swap at the end of 2012. I've almost reached my goal of finding every single optional extra that was available from new, including some of the rarest items, such as the AirFantasy fragrance control system.


    This first post will remain updated with all of the current modifications and photos. To view updates in chronological order please scroll through the various posts below this one.


    The mods so far are:

    Thanks a lot!! I took the first four shots the other day. It's one of my favourite spots to go. Check out my CarDomain page (link in sig) for a couple of shots from that same location with my old wheels.

    Thank you sir. Glad you like it. It has been a fun car to work on, and I can see myself keeping it for many more years to come

    I don't like this shape of corolla, but this is very neatly and tastefully done.

    Thanks! I appreciate the kind words, despite the fact that you don't like this shape. My aim was to separate it from the hundreds of other Corollas on the roads, but without drawing too much attention to itself


    For those interested in seeing some of my non-automotive photography, I have photos posted in this thread:

    Wow! Thanks for the massive compliment! That means a lot. I'm very pleased that you like the car, the photography and the stickers . I hope someday to do a 4A-GE 20v motor swap

    I really hope to turn photography into a career someday. It's a real passion of mine. I've only been taking photos for about 2-years, and have had no training of any sort, so it's been a fun experience so far. Just in case you missed my earlier post, you can check out some of my non-automotive photos in this thread

    I have no comments.
    The pictures are breathtaking. (Y)

    My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - 028 It's the same car bro. I changed my number plates because my old one had lots of stone chips on it. They had also made the letters slightly more bold on the new plates. It only costs $11 to change.

    Here's my CarJam page for proof. Scroll down the page to where it says "Plates history" -
