Beernut, Thanks for the information on the less expensive, but "not the real deal" spoilers. When my son read what you shared he has decided to wait and has decided he doesn't think he wants to part with that kind of money at this time. (He couldn't do it now anyway as he doesn't have any left!
It is interesting, though, when I called around a couple of Toyota parts depts. in our area to get their prices, I got several responses. One gave the quote I originally listed. Another my mom called said they could not even order a spoiler directly from Toyota for that car-as it was discontinued because of the age of the vehicle. I wonder if this is correct. Could the one for 450 be a non-toyota part? Oh well, he is one happy camper either way and can't wait to put some miles on his new set of wheels!

Whether it is a real Toyota part is largely up to the dealer and what he can get. I've seen '05's with after-market spoilers and some of them indeed are shaped differently but are still top quality. The dealer, I think, at least has an obligation to tell you which you are getting. Yes, the 450 part can be non-Toyota, but should at least be the highest quality available.
My theory in going to the dealer is more based on the expectations that they will not sell you a junky part even if it is non-Toyota and the color will match better. Perhaps more importantly, they are hopefully more interested in your satisfaction and have deeper pockets than a mail-order house.
You are wise to shop among Toyota dealers.
#319 of 375 Running wires thru the Fire Wall.

If you need to run wires from the Cabin into the Engine compartment, use a piece of hanger with the wires taped to the end and run it thru the hood cable hole in the fire wall under the dash ( left side top ).
A lot of ppl do other weird stuff to try to run them and this way is a piece-o-cake!!!

#323 of 375 Wheel size upgrade for my 2002 Corolla LE
Nov 11, 2006 (10:19 am)
I'm looking to install 195/55/15 wheels on my 2002 Corolla LE (OEM wheels size is 185/65/14). According to my calculations, if they are correct!, this is about a 2.5% increase in total wheel/tire circumference. Is this correct and, if so, is it enough of an increase to affect the calibration of the abs/odometer/speedometer? (I think I read somewhere that 2% variation in size is the maximum acceptable, but I'm not sure).
Also, if anyone has upgraded to lower profile tires like the 195/55/15 on their 2001/2002 Corollas, is there an appreciable degradation in ride quality?
I'd appreciate any feedback regarding the above since I'm bored to tears with the Corolla's OEM alloy rims and the selection of 185/65/14 after-market alloys is meager. Thanks!
