    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.

    I bought a couple of brand new grilles this week (one pre-facelift and one facelift). Got them for a bargain. I'll keep the one like mine as a spare, but I'll more than likely sell the facelift one.

    Decided to try out the facelift one a couple of days ago, but prefer my original one better (the dark grey version) -

    Thank you very much. What steering wheel are you talking about? I'm using a factory option Momo steering wheel off an AE101 FX-GT. I'll update my first post with all of the latest mods/photos to avoid any confusion

    Thanks man. The Air Fantasy and Air Purifier are two of my favourite things inside the car. They don't get used much, but they're very cool to have

    You got it bro . I know some guys who have rare parts that aren't even installed, but they don't care just because they're happy they've got them, haha. Everytime I use the Air Fantasy I feel a little bit proud My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - 028

    Thank you very much. I know what you mean about the sellers on eBay. What parts were you after? Depending on what they are, I might be able to send them to you from here in New Zealand. Send me a private message if you're interested

    Thank you sir

    Here's a shot I took about 10-minutes ago. Just happened to walk outside and saw a rainbow (was actually a double rainbow but the second one wouldn't fit in the frame), so ran inside and grabbed my camera. Didn't have enough time to grab my keys, push the button and unfold the mirrors so they're folded in the photo, haha:

    Test fitted my front lip today. Needs prep work and painting, but it seems to fit well with no cutting required:

    Sir, you have an Awesome ride.
    That is the best AE100 I have seen till today. the Mods and additions (especially the Momo STEERING WHEEL, AIR FRAGRANCE and AIR PURIFIER) are just too rare and good.
