    You better visit to Peshawar to replace the seats and power solutions. If you find the seats of any Japnese version of Corolla otherwise it may require the alteration but I would not recommend you that. The breaks of XLI sucks......

    Why dont you sell it out instead of spending bucks on breaks, seats and power windows, you may find a good feature instead of corolla it's not a big deal.

    1. nothing can be done about the seats. poor design.
    2. suspension has been raised and softened for PK, get US spec springs & upgrade your tyres to a better brand. generals suck.
    3. power packages for the rolla are available everywhere in pindi.

    honest suggestion is to dispose of this death-trap since your mother is going to use it and to buy something with integrity like a japanese corolla instead. Afterall "resale won't save your life".

    civic's are not in the same price range as the xli. please think your thoughts through before sharing them.

    Best car is not a paki civic nor a paki corolla. Both are piece of crap. Bcoz they are paki assembled. No doubt JDM rollas and civic are best! Dnt compare a paki crap wid japanese stuff.

    i believe changing the tires make a hell lot of difference. i'm using 205 55 15 on my xli n i'm not facing any braking problem. but the only problem im facing is that i dont get the feel of the brake pedal at low speeds. i mean tapping the pedal a little wont slow down the car. any comments on that??????

    Thanks everyone for the input and advice.

    VitzRulez,if i find comfort in honda city and i know the brakes are good,please be more specific why i shuouldnt go for it.

    Storm,i like ur honest suggestion and i m looking into disposing off the car.

    hamzasohail,My mom got this car last year(2007) from fauji Fertilizer Ltd for only 4 lac 66 thousand.it was 40 thousand driven and was protocol car.She got this car as per rules,that when an employee dies(in this case my dad),the widow gets a car from FFC on concessional rates.

    The tyres of the car were changed from General to Dunlop,i believe since i drive a civic,i got shocked at corolla's performance.As im out of country,I have given my civic to her to drive and she feels relaxed driving it.I just wanted to see if their was an easy solution to changing seats,breaks,getting windows powered.anyways the comfort of my mom is above all,so no issue of keeping XLi for reasle plus we didnt demand Xli from FFC,they offered it to us at cheap price as per company policy.

    @Storm,

    2. suspension has been raised and softened for PK, get US spec springs & upgrade your tyres to a better brand. generals suck.
    Actually that'll ruin the suspension. The dampers themselves will need to be changed as these have more travel due to the retarded height. He would need the entire suspension including springs which costs about US$ 650 OEM. This would bring the car down a good 3 - 4 inches too.

    @GreebBeret,

    1.uncomfortable seats/discomfort if ride is more than 1 hour
    Glad someone finally acknowledges that Corollas have dreadful seats. Your solution would be to toss out the seats that come with it, and put in a nice pair of seats from something like a Japanese Corolla. You would need to goto a scrapyard though for this solution.

    Can the brakes be changed to ABS?approximate cost?
    ABS will not improve brake quality. ABS actually takes more time to stop the car but keeps the car from going out of control. Distance needed to stop is increased. If you want good brakes:

    1. Throw out the rubbish general tyres and 14" wheel, and replace them with 15" alloys with some good Dunlop or Yokohama tyres.

    2. If you need stronger brakeforce, then Wilwood makes OEM size brake kits with better grabbing power. They also include OEM sized slotted and drilled rotors. Put in something like Stoptech brake lines too. While the brake pads wears out earlier on such setups, braking performance is improved. A replacement set of brakes costs about $550 per pair for the fronts and about $750 for the rear brakes.

    3.want to get power windows
    Thats easy, can be done for just Rs 5,000 at any car accessories shop.
