  • Toyota Model:Toyota Auris 180rx

Posted 10 May 2014 - 08:22 AM

Hi Guys, I am in the process of buying a 2009 Toyota Auris 180 RX. I love the look of the car and also the interior. You get a lot for very little money.

Now my question is when I take delivery of the vehicle, what should be the key area that should focus on for the last and final inspection from my side. PLEASE ASSIST for those you can and have knowledge.

Also where can one download the owners manual in pdf format from the web.

 

Help would be appreciated

Niel

Dude most toyota's boast long lasting engines good overall drivability. I have a auris 1.6xs wid a viper performance exhaust (no chip, no internals changed, no hidden piggy backs or gas) and I give 20v's, polo vivo gti(118kw), fiesta st(2ltr none turbo), golf 6 1.4tsi, golf mk1 2ltr(8v and 16v) among a few at least 2 cars from the line all the way to my cars governed limit of 197km. The only problem I have with the auris is the lack of power it has from the bottom up until 3000rpm there after my vvt feels good (^.^). And the 4way disk brakes are crap! I've had a problem with the braking system since I have purchased my vehicle brand new. Changed all 4 disks by 20 000km. Anti rattle clips have been making noise since 12 000km till now @ 65 000km. Guess family car brakes just isn't suited for my style of driving. Other than that the car is a good car to drive. Btw the only reason I put an aftermarket exhaust is coz I didn't know if my car was on an iddle every time I came to a stop coz of how silent it is. Fuel consumption is good. If u putting an exhaust, it will depend on hw u drive. Overall its ooooooookkkkaaaaayyyy if u wana spend less for an eco car lol.

Yeah man! Got it fitted Saturday morning, took about 1hr 40min. Because my car doesnt make over 100kW, they fitted a 50mm exhaust. I asked for a deep tamed sound something thats not too loud and rough. Will record a video later today. But here's some images:

As for the sound....i was smiling the entire way home, PLUS the wife loves the sound! Definitely a performance gain as well, acceleration is alot more responsive than it used to be. Definitely a kick when I put my foot down around 1200RPM. Pro-fit said I could get some extra gains with a decat aswell, but that'll require a Lamda Fooler (R800) as a decat will cause a Check Engine light.

Tops ryan I'm sure u enjoying the sound. The difference between viper performance and everyone else is: viper does a dyno before and after to show you actual power gains, they reset ur airflow. And the quality of their exhaust material is good. Their metals are highly polished to allow much smoother flow. My exhaust is 60m decated with my tail pipe coming out the centre. It gurgles on low revs and bust out small flames on red line. Will try and get some pics up. And possibly a vid or sound clip of my exhaust.

Kadaffi, Explain the reason for resetting your Airflow Meter? Did you change your intakes? Why should the airflow meter be reset? Can it not sense on its own that bigger amounts of air is being sucked in if a different intake was indeed added?
