Nope, just the Vitz badge under the Toyota emblem; but I sent a PM to JT258 and found his email address in one of his posts so I will check to see if it was him! The car was pretty dirty so having driven from Houston would explain that.

I've driven by the same Chilis on a few occasions and have looked for it again, but I haven't seen it.

Thanks for the tip!

Cheers! M2

Got a reply from JT258, it wasn't him but he is moving to San Antonio next year!

Lil Red, although I see a fair amount of Yarii around here (there are three LBs in my neighborhood alone!), and I've left cards on a few of them; I don't think there are many YW members in SA.

We still need to have a central Texas YW meet! Greune would work great!

Cheers! M2

Arlington, Texas here....right in the shadow of the big monstrous new home of the Arlington Cowboys. It's not unusual to see three Yarii parked at the little mexican restaurant I eat at all the time. Not sure who the owners are but I'm workin' on it!!

Mine is bone stock, too, and will remain so as I enjoy the OEM look and the ride height works much better than my previous car for all the weird dips and gutters in the roads around here. I have come to hate the sound of scraping bodywork.

Put out another YarisWorld card on a red 3 door last night that was in the Tom Thumb parking lot at Northwest HWY and Centerville Rd in Garland.

I drove behind a liftback coming home from work today near Willis TX on FM 830. It was Bayou Blue, chrome rims, custom exhaust, debadged, and I think a C-one replica spoiler. also had a Yarisworld sticker.

Saw two mod'd Yarii over the past two days, one a black LB on 1604 near Braun Road yesterday just after noon...



And the other one on Randolph AFB this afternoon...with sweet TRD rims and a cool sunscreen!



Traffic prevented me from giving the girls in the back one a YW card; but I did leave one with a note on the Yaris at Randolph. Hopefully we'll see the owner on this forum in the near future!

And it was nice to see some more mod'd Yarii in San Antonio!

Cheers! M2

I believe I saw the black one again today, over near Braun and Bandera roads. I was in the Jeep so there was no recognition, but it appeared to be the same car...

Hello folks.. Wow.. Some dedication to the Yarii watch eh?

I live in North Fort Worth/Keller area.. Since I spend most of my day on the road scooting around the DFW are on various service calls for my company I see a Yaris every few miles. We apparently are following the trendsetters.. (or would we be the trendsetters?)

Well you've got one more San Antonio Yaris on here! Mine's not anything special.. just got it last december so i havent had much time, money, or luck with getting anything new put on her just yet. :P

I may not know much at all about the engines or suspension or anything like that but I'd love to learn. I'm starting to find it all fascinating. :D

Hello (or is it Howdy?) and welcome to the forum

You can always ask the admins in the "suggestions" section, but they may or may not do it. If they don't, you could always have the "Official Texas / Houston thread" or "Official [insert state / town here] thread" like they do in the main sections to keep topics grouped together?

Hope you guys don't mind, but I cleaned up the thread some so you can go back to talking about Yarii.

I can be spotted mostly in the 410/ I-10 or 410/ 281 area and occasionally ill drive out to school UTSA-1604. Easily noticed by the "Jack" sticker on on the upper-right side of he rear window, or the red rims on the stock steelies, and if you get close enough my "RS" badge.

I've been driving the Yaris to work all week (giving the Jeep a break since the weather has been dry). Like I think I said, I mostly am on the Braun/1604 to 151 to 410 to Military route and back (my commute to Lackland).

We haven't seen Yarrris-Wench on here for two weeks, I hope school hasn't been so hectic for her that she hasn't been able to get to YW on occassion. As soon as the weather gets a little warmer, we'll start planning for SA YW Meet II!

Cheers! M2
