    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.

    That's a shame. What colour is your car? Typically, darker cars show the dirt and dust a lot more than lighter coloured cars. A good wash and wax will help to keep dust from settling too, so make sure you give it a good buff and polish every once in a while
    make it a 3S-GE then
    Keep a cool head and wear seatbelts!

    I see. While we are on the topic of dusty environments, I was watching a TV programme about Afghanistan the other week and literally every second car was a Corolla and pretty much every car on the road was white . Apparently white is the most common car colour over there as it's the easiest to keep clean and doesn't show the dirt/dust easily.

    Haha, a buddy of mine is doing a 3S-GE Beams conversion right now. I'm going to stick to the conventional 4A-GE

    Here's my latest mod that I installed today - An OEM key light. It was a rare factory option. I got it from an AE100 Sprinter, which has the exact same interior as the Corolla. Everything was literally plug-and-play which made the job very simple. It works as soon as the door is opened, and when the door is shut it remains on for about 10-seconds and then dims out.

    Thanks man. Sad to hear about the rusty ones in England. I guess that's due to the salt they used on the snowy roads in winter? Fortunately it never snows here in Auckland so my car doesn't have any rust. Oh yes, I've seen a few JDM models listed for sale in the UK before. There was an SE Limited like mine for sale not long ago. Definitely the one to get if you can

    Thank you sir! My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - 046

    Just went and picked this up - An AE101 FX-GT front bumper, complete with the fog lights and turn signals. Won it at auction for a measly $10.50 NZD ($8.60 USD, $8.20 AUD, £5.30, 372 PHP, RM 26, 738 PKR) . I had originally decided against getting one, but at a price that cheap it would have been silly not to get it, lol. I'm going to get it painted and will try it against my car. If I don't like it I'll just keep it as a spare

    Bought and installed this today - Rare OEM optional under-dash (floor well) lights. They emit a green glow on both the driver's and passenger's side whenever the door is open, and stay on for about 10-seconds when the door is shut, then fade out. It had it's own control box just like the key light:
