Interchangeable Parts?

Just seeing what all has been found to be interchangeable.

Performance?
Suspension?
Wheels/Rims?
Cosmetic?
-inside
-outside

Anything at all

Just interested in seeing whats up. Or if TRD has moved past the "no image" pictures on their site for the iM. Or if some ppl hear some nice things down the grape vine. Throw out some inside info

Thanks!

Besides basics, the motor's the Corolla Eco's and it's not that old, so you're not seeing much in the way of mods for it. Exhaust and intake are currently your essential options.
Part interchangeability with the tC for the suspension.
You can go down to 16 for wheels. Offset down to 38. Compatibility is pretty wide given it's using generic bolt patterns and so forth.
Lots of interchangeability between the Corolla and the Rav4 though mostly the Corolla.

For accessories you'll also find compatibilities with Corolla gear. For instance, if you're shopping for a rack, chances are the iM isn't showing up as an option. However, roof kits are interchangeable between the iM and the Corolla (as in they fit each other). This isn't really made obvious until you find yourself in my position and you check with the European parts.

Have you personally tried this? I've got a set of 16's I've thought about test fitting just haven't dug them out to see if they fit.

Good to know about the roof rack, I can tell you I tried fitting the corolla weather tech 3d floor mats in the IM today and it didn't work

Only the drive train is Corolla, nothing else. I'm fairly certain the pan is a tc2 pan but you can pick up weather tech mats for the iM on ebay.

I'm on Enkei M52 16x7s right now, you can see the roof racks post if you want to see how they look on my car (BTW would've gone with black matte but I didn't expect "hyper black" to look so gray).

The clearance is sufficient. ****, Tirerack does test fitting beforehand anyway so you can always check what they've got and see if it's going to fit. You can't go down to 15, but 16 is fine.

I put 55 tires on but you're better off with 50s if you're going that route.

I don't see myself upgrading those parts until they literally start rotting away so I wouldn't know, really.

I'm keeping it pretty simple and functional.

I reduced my wheel size to 16"s for the added ride comfort, the generally (some wheels are heavy, y'know) lower unsprung weight and the lower tire costs (and wheel, duh!). I added HIDs because the headlights are rated mediocre otherwise. I added a roofrack because I don't want to ruin my interior and it sorta compensates for the fact that I didn't get a proper wagon. I'm not really concerned with performance. I had a 200HP car before I landed in this guy and while it was fun it's not something I miss that much. IMO, so long as the car's stable or feels agile enough, isn't a chore and can handle what I throw at it, I'm happy. Heck, I gave up on the idea of adding heated seats because it felt unnecessary this Winter. The seats absorb and hold heat very well as it stands, perhaps too well... We'll see this summer, haha.

The wheels and rack could be carried over if I get another car eventually and that's the plan. It's not a lost expense per say. I'll always need a Winter set so long as I live here, for instance, plus I can always sell them and the added initial expense will be recuperated in a way I couldn't recuperate it with steelies.
