    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.

    Also dude you just might be the right person to ask for this next favour......

    You should be well versed with every inch of these corollas and I am in need of the elusive "16 VALVE EFi" sticker on the rear windshield, well just a high resolution image of the stupid sticker (don't ask why...lol)

    the rest I can take care of ....if you ever see it or you even have it on your car just take a snap and post it here......it's just one of those things which make me sleep at night feeling better lol......but stay tuned....I have a surprise for Toyota lovers when I get a hold of the last piece of the puzzle....... Lol

    Haha, you're not wrong there. I never used to like the FX-GT front bumper because I always thought the 'mouth' was too big, but it started growing on me after a while. The 'mouth' problem was remedied with the front lip

    Hmm, I've never seen a single 7th generation Corolla (AE100/AE101) with "16 VALVE EFi" on the back windshield. They have that on the valve cover, but not on the back window. Are you sure you're not talking about the AE92 Corolla? They had a 16 VALVE EFi sticker on the back windshield.

    I am positive on the 7th generation corolla having that decal.

    But it is rare as anything....only came on the SE-G and "Limited Saloon" models

    Strange. I can honestly say that I've never seen it. My Corolla is an SE Limited and doesn't have it, and I got a few of my optional extras from an SE-G and that didn't have it either. ToyoDIY doesn't show it available for the SE Limited or SE-G saloon either My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - 995

    Thank you, and thanks also for your opinion on the steering wheel. May I ask what you don't like about it?

    Fair enough . Aftermarket steering wheels look tacky in my opinion, and they're often smaller in size than the stock wheel so the dials on the instrument cluster become blocked. The cool thing about the OEM Toyota/Momo wheel that I have is that it's the same size as the original, it's leather and it has a removable hornpad cover so that I can change the look if I get sick of it. The fact that it's rare makes it extra special too . I do however value your opinion, and I thank you for providing a reason as to why you don't like it My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - fing32

    No problem . Personally I love the front lip. I think it completes the front end nicely, but everyone is different I guess.

    As for the sticker in the engine bay, have a look at it again . It says "Enjoy Corolla", and is a quirky spin on the Coca Cola logo

    Thanks a lot bro. I'm glad you did initially think that it said Coca Cola because that means the sticker is doing it's job, which is to trick people's minds as they affiliate the font style with that particular brand name . Glad you like the way how I've put everything in chronological order on my CarDomain page. I appreciate the kind words and your honest opinion about my Corolla My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - fing32
