The "Green Panda" Hatchback Empty

Hello people! I finally decided to start up my very own thread about my "Green Panda" Hatch!
Little backstory on this, it was around last winter, i suddenly gained a lot of interest in the car scene (All thanks to Initial D). So i decided to hunt down something that was easy to drive (Toyota), reliable and easy to work with (Toyota) and just plain good looking (Toyota).

Sometime later i came across these Corolla Hatchbacks models and i found them oddly intriguing, so i started to google some forums about these AE101's and i found this place! It's been a great source information and since then i fell in love with these Hatchbacks! Before i decided on this Hatch, there were other candidates, One Silver and one Blue, i missed both of them because i was hesitant (this was my first time buying a car by myself, so it was nerve-racking. My first car, Golf was a hand me down), but when i came across this one... i was IMMEDIATELY on the phone and i went and picked it up the same day! Ended up paying 700€ for it.

Here are some pictures from the Sales ad..

And here is the picture after i bought it!

And after a arrived home...

Now you may be wondering... why the"Green Panda" Name? Well for one not because of Initial D (aka yes) and for a second, there is a literal GREEN PANDA on my window, so the name kinda stuck with me lol! I obviously celebrated this moment with a "White Panda" Sticker for lols.

After a day of ownership, look what happened! That was fun...

Luckily my uncle had a sameish model of Corolla (More on this car later, i swear) that has some nifty looking Alloy wheels for 150€, so i bought them off of him, since he had no use for them! Oh and i bought a hatshelf (backboard) off of him while i was at it for 30€, it came with some speakers too. (my backboard was missing. Courtesy of the first owner i presume, i'm the third owner i think)

Thanks Man! Will try to keep posting when i find the time. Smile
Speaking of which, here is some more pictures from way back.

Got myself some wind/rainguards fitted, ended up looking quite fine in my eyes!

Aaaand a second disaster struck... The bolt snapped! there is only me to blame here. (Let's leave it at that  lol! )

I gotta say, the strut assembly was surprisingly easy to remove from the car, but removing the upper strut mount... was an mission in itself.
At this point i would like to note everyone that BUY PROPER TOOLS. I bought some cheapo basic spring compressors. And when the time came to use them, i quickly found out they were broken right out of the box! So that caused a small delay, but i borrowed my fathers car and went to the store to get some proper ones!

Sadly i don't have a picture of the "job well done" but rest assured i got it in the end. After that i sent the Panda for a wheel alignment test and OH BOY did it need one. On all the wheels!

Around summer time i made my first big money purchase and got myself a FX GT lip from Ebay, ended up costing a pretty penny of 200€ (Damn you customs duties! "shakes fist at the sun")

After that ordeal with the strut mount, i decided to splurge a bit and get a proper set of tools by Bacho, happened to be on sale for a decent chunk!

Another big money move with these BC Racing V1 Coilovers! Currently sitting in the garage for better days atm. (got it for 850€)

Here is my Panda and my neighbor's/co worker's Subaru Legacy that he imported from Japan i believe.

I guess i'll leave it at that for today. Leave a comment if you have well... anything to say. Very Happy

Tools are always a requirement when you have a car LOL. I have the BCs on my car too, they are nice!
