    Default My take on the 11th gen Corolla

    Our new Gli MT finally arrived after a wait of more than 4 months and lots of arguing with dealership but finally it's here. This thread format will be different form others in the fact that here I will give my impressions of the car in light of having a 9th gen Altis, a 10th gen Altis and 10th gen gli and now this all together in the same household and seeing how far IMC has progressed. Having owed each generation of Corolla since 80s and three generations of Honda Civic as well ill try to make the review interesting with lots of healthy comparisons on usefull factual points. Plus some cheeky comparisons here and there with the Mercedes may not hurt either.

    So stay tuned I'll be updating with pics and also be discussing add ons in this thread. The car purpose is to be used as a daily driver so I am not the sole person responsible for it so I'll be reviewing it from a objective standpoint in this thread rather than merely describing it as the owner.

    page 1....... delivery and initial impressions

    review pending.

    What's the speed rating on the tyres and did you install camera yourself?

    Yes night and day difference if you read my initial review I thought car drove really badly but now it's smooth and yes they do absorb bumps more than euros and in fact more than either yoko advan and michillen energy savers on the other corollas

    They are filled with nitrogen and really smooth to drive size is stock and manufacturing was 2015 all round

    So far I really love these only I have felt that maybe thier grip or feed back is not as good as continentals or advan and their tread pattern isn't particularly amazing or sophisticated

    Speed rating is okay it's H though from Pirelli I would expect V maybe it's because of the stock size. Yes I did at home along with the headunit you can see in above pictures along with the steering control

    Are these tires offered by Indus motors on the new corollas? or dealerships are changing them complimentary.

    looking at them tells me that if these are being changed by the dealership it means they are getting more money for the taken off euro stars in return they are installing these super cheap pirelli tyres.

    no offence to anybody, just a suspicion.

    Ahan so this is where our tax money is used
    Money differs from an automobile or mistress in being equally important to those who have it and those who do not.

    nitorgen is being filled by toyota walton lahore, 1000rs charge. some toyota dealerships are offering pirellis and this was confirmed by some other post at the forum i read as well and they are not complimentary nor do they come pre fitted they charge you over the euros if you return them but thats at the time of delivery. they wont take the euros back they will just sell you new pirellis and price is comparable to market i think it was 8500rs per tyre if i recall, so these are more expensive than euros and dealership is not earning anything back, you can find these tyres in market as well.

    now they were complimentary for us as if you read the posts above there were serious issues in our car and they took too much time to fix them under warranty so as a gracious move the manager installed these in our car free of cost.

    btw this scheme isn't anything new last year toyota dealership was offering the same with Michelin energy savers.

    and i can assure you this series of pirelli is their highest in this size, these cost more than euros no matter where you buy them and have excellent international reviews as well.

    hahaha, i can assure you tax money is safe, any modifications to the car (of which there aren't any apart from headunit and a camera) have all been done with our own money and whenever the car is taken away the headunit etc will be removed and the original headunit will be reinstalled back.

    The car came with black floor mats with hooks on the floor to attach them
    What do you guys think are there any floor mats available which have hooks to attach on driver side so that they don't slip in beige color?
    Black mats gets dirty very quickly moreover I am not a fan of this interior scheme it gets quite hot in sunlight compared to old model yet the grace is still not there like of Honda's city's black interior version compared to the later beige one.
