    Default What MUST do's for a new GLI Auto

    Dear All

    i am going to buy a new GLI Auto this month, i would like to ask what must do things to do:

    for example shall i add the floor mat ? how much cost to upgrade it with Altis type wood interior, fog lights plus altis type alloys?

    do i have an option to upgrade the altis options from toyota or better to do it from local market?

    which tyres are good as i am a user of Dunlop from the last ten years but i would like to use this time Michelin or yokohama? which tyre is good in GLI sizes (size should not be very big from stock)?

    thanks in advance for your knowledgeable sharing.

    I bought a GLi Auto in November 2012, at Toyota Rawal Motors, I bought the fog lights, wooden interior and altis side skirts for my car. It came to a total of like 50k or something. The side skirts were expensive.
    As for the tires, get the Yokohama Decibel V550/V551 and the size should be 196/65/R15. Here's a pic of my GLi:

    Buy the 15 inch lenso imported rims from open market keep the stock tyre size and buy Michelin XM2.

    Buy a pioneer 1550 DVD player.

    Buy genuine OEM fog lights from dealership expensive but worth it local Rs. 3,000 china stuff will fade in 1 year.

    Wooden panels and Altis kits of all kinds and shades are available in open market.

    Change front and rear speakers to Pioneer 1675S and 6965.

    Where did you get those rims from?!

    That's the best GLi I've ever seen.

    @Chaps, Thanks bro, Got the steering from ebay.co.uk and its from 2009 Toyota Auris, not sure about the gear knob as an altis manual is six speed where as Gli is five speed manual.
