Copying Vee-Dub? What gives?

I love the look, but that new grille is blatantly stolen from the new VW GTI.

1.8 outta' be pretty darn peppy in that thing... I've got the same one in my Vibe, and though it's by no means a beast, it'll go when you want it to, and that's in a much heavier car...

That grill on the Yaris TS has been out since February 2005 on the JDM Vitz RS, so maybe the GTI stole it from the Vitz...

If they bring this 1.8 version to the US, I promise you guys you will have a 350-400 hp turbo yaris cruising around NY
LOL would love to swap the pistons out of that motor and turbo it with a garret unit
that thing would be a rocket with the Yaris's weight

I wonder how much extra the T Sport will cost (if we even get it in the states). I want a Yaris bad, but if it only cost $1-2k more, I might wait it out. I bet the mpg is just as good as the 1.5L... the 1.8L in a manual Vibe is rated around 36-38 mpg, and as I said before, that's a heavier car.

Oh, BTW, they keep mentioning that Storm Grey color... think that's the only color it would come in?

Let's say, money for "tweaking" the car was no object. My ideal with this car would be to bore it out about 40 over, balance and blueprint the engine, I'm not sure exactly which way, but I have all sorts of contacts for Tin and Tin black (Titanium nitrate coatings) for the bearings and the piston sleeves, put a turbo running about 20 psi...... Something like snake wants to do I think.

If money was no object I'd buy a Toyota Supra Turbo and mod the engine for 1000 hp and add AWD.

+1. I like the look of mine better. Just a little too "fancy" for me a guess.

<<< Simple tastes :)

I started doing taxes for a living in Jan. The entire tax season I did about 50 returns. If it wasn't my father's company, and if I wasn't getting payed hourly, I wouldn't have done it at all.

Of course, getting paid to surf the web and play computer games is a good thing.

Not to mention news and discussion are two seperate forums.
You noticed that too, seems there are different rules for different people.

You misunderstand me.

It is HIS board, he can do what he wants with it.

Until you start paying the bills, you have to live with his decisions.

If you don't like it you can find another board.

Quite the contrary, same rules for everybody. And one of the rules is to post in a way which does not resort to personal insults. -->
