Urg... We need some East Coast Performance shops!

I would donate myself to Science if it meant free performance car parts!

How about offering your EAST COAST customers some kind of special deal as a way of saying “Sorry you guys live on the wrong side of the US for any of the cool stuff, Like being a test subject, but hey, here you go… we’ll throw you a bone you pathetic sack of @%$#*&@#$!”

** Sorry I have already tried donating my car to EvilTurbo and EPS Turbo, but both told me wrong COAST** I guess I’m still a bit bitter! And now GReddy… I just hope I can afford it when it does get released!

I hope you West Coast Yarites jump on these deals…

I was planning on an exhaust for some time, but can't pass this up. I'm hoping it's based on the evo2 model system they have out. Now I just have to take a few pics once i get home and send them in.

now ummmm....what exactly is meant by a profile shot of the rear and exhaust? lol

I guess it'll be a race to give up the car first....

But I'm kind of to lazy to do the email and take pictures deal.

and I'm just at 2" lowered, and I have a engine mod already...

just a side shot of the car, focusing on the rear of course. but don't worry about it, it's just a little extra, All of the Yaris's are brand new so there's nothing to worry about.

Understood, thank you. I'll be sending an email later today as for now I'm stuck with my classes until 5.

Any idea as to what week your looking to have this donor car at the shop?
