I have... Last September when bumpershoot was going on. NOT a good time to go visit the Pacific Science Center, lol. At least it was easy to park my yaris I'll make it over that way more often as the weather gets nicer, so keep your eye out for a meteorite metallic with black 17" wheels

Purchased there

Bought my Yaris in Renton. Haven't been back. To much traffic. Prefer Eastern Washington.

I'm hoping to get more suspension goodies by the time summer goes into full swing. So far I have had a blast with mods. Don't want to get too crazy though until the warranty is up. My latest addition is a NST pulley, next will be cruise control. I'll put word out of any ventures over to Seattle, as I too would love to see what other Yarii owners have done to their rides.

Sweet! What brand of bar are you going to install? I put a tanabe on mine and noticed a big difference during my commute from Yakima to Wenatchee

Sweet man! How's the pulley treating you? Any differences?

I have to say, I LOVE IT! I don't feel that it improved my "off the line" takeoffs, but it is noticeable when you already have some momentum and give it some throttle. It is equally noticeable on the freeway and on hills. I took it to a mechanic friend of mine and he got it installed in about 15 minutes. I think it gave me a little more response than my TRD exhaust did, and it cost about a third. If you want a nice performance upgrade that will shave just over 2 pounds off of the car and have a positive effect on MPG (not huge, but it is a wee bit better, will have numbers soon.) it is worth the $120 w/shipping. The NST one works fine, and is WAY cheaper than C-ONE.

I purchased the Tanabe strut bar. I already have the Tanabe NF 210 lowering springs and like the Tanabe combination. I will also install the pulley soon. I've heard great feedback.

Toyota/Scion Cruise up Mt. St. Helens

It would be pretty cool to hold a yaris meet at this gathering. So far I am the only Yaris that will be attending, but hopefully some fellow owners might want to go as well. There will be lots of scions, hoping to get those Yarii numbers up too!

Ya but no one ever meets up over here. You have to make the drive to the west side for that.
