    The best bet for you is to take a day to stop at a few electronics stores. Best Buy, Circuit City, etc. They often have installation available as well. I'm sure they'll have stereo's ranging from under $100 to well over $1000 if you look.

  • Hey, I just got a CD player for my '00 Corolla I just bought. It was a little over $100. They're pretty easy to put in yourself (if you're looking to save money so you don't have to pay them to install it). Just make sure you ask for a 2000 Corolla mounting kit, just a bunch of wires. If you want to try and install it yourself, i can tell you how!

    I just bought a 2005 Toyota Corolla CE. The car has been absolutly fantastic, but I was wondering about a cosmetic thing...

    Does anyone know if its possible to take the lower body kit from the Corolla S and put it on the CE? From what it looks like they are the exact same body without the kits but I wasn't sure of any hidden complications. I looked into other body kits available for the Corolla but thought this might be more cost effective since I could get it already color matched from the factory.

    corpchimp, i noticed on the last page you were talking about taking off your side skirts and extensions on your S, I would gladly take those off of your hands for you if they are factory black that is. I can't tell you has easy it is or not to remove them since I am no expert but I can tell you it will look fine. Mine looks fine, I just prefer the look of body extensions to not.

    why did you not get a S instead?
  • althe3rdalthe3rd Posts: 2
    I didn't get an S because I got such a deal on the CE. The reason being is I bought the CE technically used from the dealership, it had 4000 miles on it when I bought it so I got it for about $13,000. Aside from the very low mileage though it had everything else I wanted and was pretty much brand new. It's an all black, power everything, CE. So it hardly feels like a CE especially since I have already helped it out by putting in a few parts including a K&N air filter. With all the options that were already on it the MSRP was closer to around 17,000

    A deal is always cool!

    I looked at the CE and S when I got my new xB this past Feb. I could have gotten a CE for super low at 185 (includes 2500 down payment) a month at 2.9%. It was a tempting deal.

    Anyone know where I can get some nice mat's for my beige interior LE? They weren't included in purchase.

    I am following the discussion on relacing the stock air filter with the K&N on a 2005 corolla. has anyone else done this replacement? any appreciable increase in hp? any increase decrese in gas mileage (i get 35 mpg city/hgy combined)? how about difference in engine sound -- louder, softer than before?

  • Please someone explain to me how to intall an 800 watt amp into this car im 16 and dont know much about this so someone please help.
  • tundradudetundradude Posts: 588
    First of all, why do it. You're just going to lose some hearing.

    Although, if you must. Go out and buy a new head unit. Install new head unit. You may need a service book to know where to pull on the dash (like Chilton). Plug Amplifer into nead unit. Buy new speakers so you will not blow up factory ones. Make sure you get the proper size and power handling capability. Find a good place to install amplifier like under one of the front seats, the passenger seat should be empty. Plug amplifier into head unit by going under carpet to the dashboard. Wire speakers to the amplifier under same carpet and dashboard. You may want to also update that wiring to handle the extra power.

    Or Just take it to Circuit City or like place and pay them some money to do it for you.

    I am in the process of buying a new Corolla S. I was very picky about the color, had to have indigo ink, so the car I ended up with doesn't have all the accessories I would like. Does anyone know if it is difficult to put door sill enhancements on yourself, or even the sporty exhaust tip. I know you can purchase them after market, but are they hard to install?
  • Hi there,

    I have a 05 Corolla S, its a manual, and i have just put in a K&N Typhoon cold air intake. I wanted to install it, but got a little comlicated with the wiring, so i decided to take it to a proffessional, they had to amke a few more drills on the intake to fit it in there. i was a little worried by this, but as long as they dont touch the engine, i'm ok. Once installed i started the engine, but couldnt hear a difference in sound. So i started driving, the engine sound quite the same up to about 3000 rpm, then the lowhum kicks in, and belive me there is a difference in power. I have read that most people dont feel anything until they put it on a dyno. But you can. Maybe because i race cars, i felt it. But it was worth every penny. As for gas mileage, i havent had as long, so iwont be able to tell you yet (got it done yesterday)
    Hope this helps
  • Anyone ever find an adapter to make the cupholder big enough to hold a regular household coffee cup? Thanks.
  • The dealer has some. I bought the vinyl for $87 bucks. They are custom fit and heavy duty. I think carpet mats are available too.
  • nmrtnmrt Posts: 56
    thanks a lot for your reply. i was just wondering actually about replacing the filter not the whole intake as you have done.

    enjoy your machine!
  • I have a 2004 Corolla LE and like mostly everything about it except the fake wood interior trim that comes standard on the LE. I want to replace all of that with the standard black that comes in the CE. There is a panel on each door (area with power lock/window controls) and 3 pieces in the center under the radio/temp controls.

    I'm starting to check with service depts about parts needed and what the cost might be, but am wondering if anyone has experience with that. I know other people don't like the fake wood either, but don't know of anyone who has replaced it...

    I have an '05 Corolla LE which came with the "Audio Value Package" (as opposed to the JBL Value Package). There are six speakers; four in front and two in back.

    There are two tiny black speakers mounted near the the lower front corners of the front windows. These speakers appear to make a very tinny sound; it seems as though they are almost a liability to the overall sound, rather than an asset.

    So my questions are a) is this normal for these tiny speakers, or b) might there be something wrong with them that needs repair, or c) if this is the normal sound, is this the sort of thing that can be improved by replacing them with better aftermarket speakers that could be mounted in the same place?

    Thanks so much!

  • I am awaiting an '06 Corolla S and am going to be puting a lot of interstate miles on it over the next few years and am fearing the bug chips. I live in Illinois so bugs can be a problem. I am thinking of getting a FULL front end bra for it, not the small hood ones, the whole cover. I have seen some sharp ones. Has anybody ever used one of these on a new Corolla? If so which ones are the good ones. I don't know much about bras (cars...) I was wondering if they stay on pretty good, are some better than others? Do they cause problems to the paint underneath. I'll just be honest I could use some advice. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...
