    Default 11th Gen Corolla (Hornet): An Unlucky Affair

    Introducing Corolla GLi 1.3 (Super ECT)
    Asalamoalikum respected PakWheel members and guests.
    Alhamdolillah, Allah has blessed me with this brand new car after I let
    Viper go to its next handler and keeper, after a very satisfying experience of a little over four years. With blessing from Allah (S.W) and friends like you, I hope to make this is a no-nonsense, extremely informative and enjoyable thread just like Viper. This cannot be possible without your support, appreciation, critique, guidance, sharing and participation. So hop in, like and subscribe.

    But, the driving experience has not been anything more than average. The only aspect in which this car stands out (at the moment in Pakistan) is its shape.

    Wonderful effort. Thank you so very much on behalf of everyone reading this thread. These are probably the worst kind of wheels they could come up with.

    Bro, the lip spoilers or dove tail type are very common. Put on a low-winged spoiler like the ones which come with CL9 Accord. It will turn so many heads, even those with long feminish locks.

    Congratulations on the new ride. You've started gathering the momentum nice add-ons. Still no pics though only the teasers when's the photo shoot?

    Those price lists are insane, 75k for "Genuine" navigation. I'd rather buy an aftermarket high quality LCD with a good panel for the fitting and download the sygic maps. The main attraction for me used to be the fitting of the DVD offered by the manufacturer but since now there are lots of aftermarket panels I don't see the need anymore. The retractable side mirrors on your list?

    The rims they are offering are not very good (maybe its the bad quality pics) seems like they signed a contract with some supplier here in Pakistan they seem pretty much like the rims on our tyre shops here. The least they could do was source the ones being offered in the European and the US models instead of these average looking everywhere available rims, I happened to see the European ones live and believe me they look really decent and cool. Talking about the ones in the pic below:

    Let me get free and hopefully will do it on this weekend. I've got some ideas.

    You seem to have read my mind. Personally, I'd prefer a dockable iPad Mini 2 (Wi-Fi+Cellular) or use my iPhone for navigation purpose. There are so many after market options out there, you really don't need to spend that insane amount on a crappy unit costing 75,000 or more.

    Yes, very much.

    As per my view point, there is a limited set of wheels which you could say strike a balance between sports oriented cool and conservative or decent. It has to be either way. Wheels may be the last addition. But lets wait and see.
