So this is my first car and it is pretty neat as it is very quicc.
I have only found one strange thing with it. It is the gearbox as I can accelerate to 100kmh in second gear and just change straight to sixth gear from the second gear, but I believe the gear box is from lotus elise so it kinda makes sense why it is strange.
Sorry I am not artistic enough to write a novel about my car
I might add more text.
Pictures (I dont have many pictures (not text) yet):
As I thought, thanks for clarifying. The supercharger examples are hard to come across, so it’s something I don’t see often. Doesn’t make the T-Sport any less cool, it’s still an Elise engine with plenty of pep!
Update: Secondary air injection pump is malfunctioning and it turns off the vsc and traction control sometimes. Now I have to find a way to bypass it as I am not going to pay 1/4 of the car’s price just to replace a fairly useless part.
After realizing that automatics are no fun I decided to buy another corolla.
Its surprisingly hard to find a manual rwd car that isn’t german and is relatively new.
Aand just like the GS this was the cheapest one I could find so it’s a bit rough although only driven 200k kilometres. (Actually Im pretty sure this is one of the cheapest non-diesel manual ever sold in Finland)
So you traded in the Corolla T-Sport for a Lexus GS, and swapped that one for a newer, second-gen, Lexus IS after realizing that you had missed the joy of driving a stick shift all along. Good for you, then - the IS is definitely a step up from the Corolla in terms of comfort, although it’s not quite as fun to drive.
The Corolla was a blast to drive, but it wasn’t a great daily. It was cold in the winter AND it wasn’t rwd.
The GS was cool, but it wasn’t manual and was quite thirsty even though it had the smallest engine.
The IS is cool looking, rwd and a manual so basically everything I want.
