corolla goes awesome up the outlet :P ute doesnt like the hills on boyer road to much :(

altho theres 2 differeces corolla 80,000k's ute 396,000k's lol

it would probably be alright but mum said i can take her car so why not, sister works so i gotta drop my neice of to my brother in law at the warf at 5ish.

the fuel economy of that little corolla tho is awesome and goes pretty hard for a 1.8L 5sp.

Yeah fair enough. It would certainly use less fuel :P

By the way, I'll be checking my ute regularly, if the coil and leaf suspension and diff is gone I'll know where to look :lol:

Well maybe leave it as auto until you decide or the auto box doesn't work anymore :p

Which probably won't be too long if you're still really keen on first gear :lol:
