It's a good looking car. Reminds me of the Matrix. 1.2L is great for saving gas. Have fun.

Exactly! First time I saw this model, I thought "Honey, I shrunk the Matrix"

Operation: Go Tuck Yourself!

"Before" and "during" pictures unfortunately missing, but imagine 3 USB cords and an audio patch cable hanging around, getting intertwined in the gear shifter and generally being a nuisance...

I recently bought some flat cables of varying lengths, and earlier tonight set out to find out if the interior of this car can be pulled apart as easily as the old one. The answer is a resounding yes! A few firm pulls on the corners of the radio surround and under the AC controls, and off the panels popped! Same for the A-pillar trim.

So, I was able to hide the charging cable for the dashcam, up the A-pillar and under the front of the headliner, as well as hiding the audio cable and other phone charging cables. Much better!

Wow, I have not updated this thread in a while!

To be fair, in June last year, I got a sexy Volvo V60 as a new daily driver, and my future brother-in-law borrowed the Yaris for a while. But since both my GF and myself need to commute everyday now, we got the Yaris back at the end of last year. Of course, she daily-drives the Volvo But it also means I have permission to make some light modifications to this car!

The first ting I did, on the very last day of 2019, is a wheel alignment and front bumper modification... A litttle too fast around a very slimy muddy corner, jumped over the curb and bounced off a tree!

Thankfully the damage was actually minor, just body panels and suspension. Insurance covered it, and a month later, it was good as new :)

The problem with daily-driving a relatively fancy car like my Volvo, then going back to a super-basic Yaris, is that you start to miss the bells and whistles and nice little comfortable touches of the bigger car... So I started to plan out some upgrades for this car, to make it a bit more up-to-date. Starting with lighting. There are stock projectors, but using plain ol' halogen bulbs. These have since been replaced by a Philips LED kit, which is pretty much as close to OEM as it gets (not too bright, not too blue, and perfect alignment out of the box). Also swapped the turn indicators and reverse lights for some generic LEDs. I also replaced the horn with the aftermarket one I had on the 2006 Yaris, much better than the toy-like meep meep!

As for future plans, well... Since the 2006 Yaris is quite dismantled and won't be back up and running for a while, I will borrow its wheels, with some new tires :) After the crash last year, I have a strong distrust for the "eco" tires...

Then it will be mostly interior improvements: Big-screen Android-based headunit, 360-degree camera setup, some subtle lighting, maybe some proper Recaro seats if I can find some second-hand ones cheap... stay tuned!

Ouch! That sucks about the brush with the tree.
Headlights are looking good though!

It's been super dusty the past few months, but finally got the car a good wash and wax today

Since I'm planning to upgrade the red Yaris to 17" wheels? why not use my nice lightweight 15" on this car?

The wheel gap looks comical, though, will need to do something about that
