    Best tyres?

    Not available in the OP's tyre size though... Only toyos available are CF2. I have the same size wheels, general consensus is the Rainsport 3's are most popular. But wear out quicker than many other options. I do hear CF2's are good though and surprisingly inexpensive.. Here is the full selection of available tyres in this size: https://www.camskill.co.uk/m4b0s403p0/Car_Tyres_-_MPV_Tyres_-_People_Carrier_Tyres_-_14_inch_R14_inch_-_185_55_14_185_55R14

    Glanza V in Tokyo

    Cool Glanza, looks the spitting image of what mine was when I first got it 10 Years ago! Mine came over with RSR springs too. Any chance you know the part number for the RSR springs you fitted? (May get another set). Thanks

    ID-Workz EP91 Parts Catalogue

    Yeh I second that, and my best mate 3rd's it. I actually thought you still made them Idrees?

    Speedo Lights

    Good lad. They should last you well. Yeh there is a plastic white over clip on the speedo cable end that you need to pull aside from the notch in the cable end whilst then sliding it down the speedo cable. Then a tug should get it off. My fingers arent too fat so I was always able to get them behind the clock in situ to remove everything at the back, thankfully.

    Speedo Lights

    Lucas bulbs are decent mate. Had good experiences with them too. Them or osram / philips would be my choice. Not to knock the previous guy. I have tried those simply bulbs before in all sorts of bulb types. H7 h4 501 286 and they are shit. I mean they work for a short time. Few months but always go pop.

    Glanza ep91 dashboard cluster removal Help! Plz

    There is a plastic over clip on the speedo cable. Feel it with your fingers. Pull off from one side whilst sliding down and off the speedo cable. Then the cable will come out with a bit of a tug. To mention on my glanza there are 3 connectors at the top: left, middle and right. Reverse process when putting back in.

    Speedo Lights

    Most important thing i can recommend is buying the best quality bulbs for the clock lights i.e. osram. I had a couple of experiences replacing the clock bulbs with basic brand bulbs and they last less than 6 months and you gotta redo it all again. Osrams ive had in are years old and still good.

    HKS SSQV installation question

    You should put at least a jubilee / hose clip on there just to make sure it doesn't pop off from the pressure etc
  11. So never take these off the car? (pic attached) I was hoping to powder coat them in the future. Not worth it then / leave them be??

    Who knew starlets had a pollen filter??

    Quick update on explaining the mystery. I got in touch with Jay through TGTT who told me that: "Toyota started introducing a different evaporator housing from Dec 97 (coincides nicely with the mk2 V) which incorporated cabin pollen filters. As you can imagine in Japan this was a major feature as they are all about the air quality. Worth noting that it's not just as cut and dry as that. Pollen filters only became factory in 97, however before that you could still spec them as a dealer option. That means there's 1996 V's running round with them too albeit retrofitted." Therefore, this would also generally agree with why toyodiy parts catalogue has only 97+ V's listed for the pollen filters. Jay also mentioned that the EP82's never got them as they were obviously previous to this. When in doubt. Ask Jay!

    Jam manifold

    Nice, clear differences there from stock. So was Jam the only aftermarket company to do a cast one then? I mean if there was another company who made a cast one, it'd be pretty hard to tell what is genuine JAM and what isn't, no?

    optional extras and shed clear out

    http://www.ukstarletowners.com/topic/53119-ha-finially-proved-the-turbo-timers-off-the-mr2s-arnt-genuine/ Just to help - Seems the turbo timer switch is just for an aftermarket part (although looks oem). Not toyota OEM or an optional extra.

    Jam manifold

    Cool find! My question is how do we know this is a genuine JAM manifold, they are usually not stamped are they?

    Who knew starlets had a pollen filter??

    Cool, looks like we've settled it then, unless someone with a 96 shows a pic of one lol No idea about gt's though. Thanks for explaining the pipe function also. Makes me wonder where all the junk that the filter picks up goes to in mine though!

    Who knew starlets had a pollen filter??

    Out of interest, people saying they have a 98 glanza v - is that deffo a v from the factory? I.e. not a conversion and still has the filter??

    Who knew starlets had a pollen filter??

    I think you may be right. Here is a pic of my genuine 96 v. (Sorry couldnt rotate pic) The box has no filter hole. However i notice there's a pipe comnected that looks like it goes through the firewall, your car doesn't have that pipe so toyota must have changed a few things on the facelift system.

    Actually reading the threads on tgtt so many contradicting views. I'd be interested to see what the definitive answer is. Some saying 98 spec glanza has them whilst 96 spec doesn't. Vast majority that say they have them is ep91 non turbo / not glanza models. Pretty certain my 96 does not have them remember looking numerous times...

    Glanzas don't have them. Only non turbo ep91 / uk spec ones do. I am unsure of gt turbos but there is a thread on tgtt explaining this.

    1996 Glanza V auto [NOT FOR SALE]

    Is this an Automatic?
  22. Can anyone tell me is the optional extra TRD Carbon Dial Surround REAL carbon fibre or just plastic with a carbon effect look / covering? Pic attached of the part in question. Thanks
  23. Cheers for the info all. Who was Mc Chu, wasn't he in Thailand? I recall joining the starlet community right around the time that he slowed down / stopped producing his products. Was he a one man band? Shame would love some of his original parts. Was hoping the TRD one was carbon due to the cost when they pop up for sale..
  24. Just a relatively small problem but a warning to others buying more expensive items. I purchased an HKS pink oil filter for £17.00 off this chap advertising on fb marketplace. After receiving it today, covered in oil, the box too, it is damaged and has already been used on a car! I am actually amazed at the stupidity that this has happened and that the seller actually thought they could do this and send a used oil filter to someone when they have charged what it would be for a new filter (as I was expecting). Thankfully paid paypal so claiming in process, but a warning to others as who knows what other crap he'll try and sell.

    Carbon Goodies

    I think carbon goodies has ceased doing anything starlet related anymore. I had no replies to various messages either about parts. Should probably be removed from traders...
