    lol... updating the stock stereo deck in this gen Corolla is a great investment! :p I waited too long to do this mod.. worth every cents.

    shawn86.. keep an eye on your voltage and battery power make sure all these goodies don't become a parasitic drain :mad:

    That is why you purchase a FARAD and connect your amp to it , any lighting and it will not drain your battery .

    shawn86 New Member

    Yeah for sure I used a wiring harness and I have a capacitor for my amp also. I have blown up too many batteries because of wiring and electrical issues.

    Well while I had to replace a stud and brakes I decided to just throw some slotted rotors , I have used these in all my past Corollas , Camry , My Rav4 currently has all 4 slotted rotors .

    My only recommendation on slotted rotors is that you use Ceramic Pads or Carbon Fiber . I have never had a problem with them , braking feels the same pads seem to last longer but the best part since this Corolla like my other ones with no ABS they do not heat up when you use them a lot so the stop is always good .

    The only thing I have noticed is with ceramic pads when they are super cold they don’t work as well until they warm up.

    I live in Florida so cold is not a option for me - lol - But what I love about Ceramic is No or Little Dust on Rims

    The tail pipe down is to keep the pipe from scrapping on driveways ,

    I know a lot of people hate the lights under the cars , They think RICE or fast and furious but believe it or not Tokyo is famous for expensive cars lit up like neon board , But me personally or I know in Florida lights under the vehicles can be classy ,

    These lights are remote they change colors and they blink to music if I decide to change the mood , But for now Purple is my main theme at night - Hope you like - Of course before installing these always paint under your car white so that the color can bounce from the ground to the white and back down again ,

    Where did you purchase the Altis tail lights? Link?

    I’m also bringing new life to my corolla so we are in very similar places. Like others have asked, what’s the next mod?
