    Those are 3PMSF (well-rated for snow tyres) so this should be a beast come winter :-)

    I'm a daddy now and I'm now looking for a larger car. The spec ? It needs to work with the sprint fart 4x100 wheels. So far, people have suggested a honda civic 1.6 aerodeck estate, I've also thought of a honda jizz or nissan bloat... or mk3 golf estate Any other suggestions - takes 4x100, 15", 4 doors, good rear seat space and a big-ish boot... ? I'd love a starlet with a large boot .. another foot would make all the difference, is there anything like that ? Suggestions welcome, other than ones to get a car that takes different wheels. lol. I have 6 sets of 4x100 15" wheels.. and I'm kinda attached to them.

    Starlet good first car?

    Toyota build cars that are simple and over-engineered. Just keep up regular servicing.

    the chassis is in great condition but the body panels have all been "learner drivered" by someone with little experience - and rattle-canned back to silver ;-) I love the sprint farts but I really want to get them refurbed one day. They are one of my favourite wheels. So light. So stylish.
  6. These aren't that effective in engines since a lot of the wear is non-magnetic material (bearing material especially). The best thing is spending more on good filters like Mann or Mahle/Knecht or OEM. They are more effective in gearbox/diffs for sure.. There's almost purely magnetic particles there and no filter.

    Actually flushed the heater matrix. It's improved the full heat :-) Fitted some centre caps with nice decals - I think Sprint Hart wheels are some of the best to ever come out of japan. Still loving this car. Tempted to put it on SSR Mesh come summer.

    I definitely need to flush the heater matrix on this car. The heat is only available *far* into the red of the dial. like, the last 3 clicks.

    Took the sill covers out and ACF50'd the sills. Fairly easy job. Got about 38 MPG combined over a 300 mile trip. What's with the 10L of fuel still in the tank when the gauge reads "E" for empty ?

    I found some rust under the battery tray I've ACF50'd it tho, now. Need to find out how I can ACF50 the sills too before getting it into too much salt.

    Track car :-) Get some decent suspension (and maybe some bracing) and tyres before you both with power mods. I can recommend Meister R suspension... The 4efe is fairly limited but 4efte and 4age swaps seem very popular. (I'm keeping mine "standard" because my mod money goes to my roadsters)
