    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.

    Just for your info coz i think u were following those in another thread.
    @Thinking
    Thank you for your support. I blew the deal with @hash4u, but maybe, they were not in my qismat. He was offering the OEM ones for a very good price. But again, I'm thankful for your support.

    Default Corolla "Hornet"

    Hoping to improve ignition, idling and fuel efficiency. And a little performance gain by increasing acceleration too.

    Nice purchase. Looking forward to a detailed comparison. Do we also need to change the plug wires?

    Sir one thing which is jumping in my mind since day 1, Google didn't give any clear and satisfactory answer. I think that a car enthusiast like you may know the answer.
    The question is about UniChip, fb and other forums are flooded with the claims eg a Gli's meter is showing 200+ kmph due to the installation of UniChip (apparently). One more claim is that your fuel economy increases drastically. Does this system really work? If yes then how?

    Another electronic module that removes restrictions imposed by manufacturer and lets the engine perform at its maximum. Tried calling the contact numbers for more information, nobody answered. Frankly, average people like me won't be having money to spend on these things and then further on the warranty related issues. Else I would have tried this thing. Nevertheless, will try and pay these guys a visit to find out.

    The only thing these plugs offer is a longer service life, that is all. No other performance measures change in any significant way.
