Hot damn thats a angry looking yaris. I cant wait to get my grill back from the bodyshop tomorrow. But atlas its raining in my area so going to be a week before i can install it.

I also had my rear chrome piece on the trunk color matched too to give the rear end a wider appearance. Ill post pics up as soon as i get everything installed. Also have my bottom lip to install at same time.

I'm real curious about the rear chrome piece. That's like the only piece of chrome on my sedan, besides the Yaris badge. I've toyed with color matching it. So when it's done, definately post up some pics! I'm looking forward to seeing the 'end' results.

I been debating about painting it for awile. Every day i see corollas and camrys on the road with the piece color matched and gives the car a cleaner look. But on the yaris they made it chrome for whatever reason. It makes the rear end look smaller and makes our already subcompact car even more compact looking.

Cool. Looks like you did the Toyota emblem too. Can you post a shot taken from directly behind your car?

It looks much better in the light. Was raining today though. As you can tell it makes the rear end of the car look a lot wider. Parked next to my brothers corolla from the back they look nearly the same size. Before with the chrome in the center is where your eyes are drawn to it makes the car appear smaller. To me has a more clean look.

PM "Cali Yaris" (Garm) to see if he has any more in stock. I got it from him.

Thanks! I like the look too. Must have been the angle on those other pics as the Toyota emblem is not painted. My bad.

One more question, did you replace the turn signal bulb with something other than yellow? In your pictures I don't see the yellow bulb. I recall someone did that but I don't remember who...

Yeah i have chrome tail light bulbs they do flash yellow though when signalling. I have chrome reverse lights too that give a very bright white light when backing up.

If you look up the part number for the bulb just type it in the search on ebay with the word chrome. Or use the search button i think someone had posted a good brand and bulb type before.

Hey guys, I just got my chrome trim for the grill, check it out... I think it looks ok... I was a bit skeptical at first but it turned out ok.




By the way, my grill, is very similar to the one that Cali Yaris is selling, except I had it customized, I had the bottom bump below the toyota logo shaved to make it thinner. I also added black vinyl on the top lip to make it two tone. Added the chrome trim, and viola! it looks totally unique now.

I'm not much into chrome, but it really compliments the chrome trims. I thought about it for mine after I saw yours, but I don't think it'll look good on a dark colored car like mine. It really goes well with your silver.

Thanks vios7! I got it off of ebay, its about $14 but shipping to the philippines is like $35 so about $50 but I definatly think its worth it, coz it really stands out, especially if you have a mesh grill.

Just do a search on ebay for yaris and you'll hit one of the auction pages for sure.

yeah I thought about that before, since I already had the chrome trim on the trunk, it made sense to have it in front as well, heheh it makes my vios look unique too. I like the outcome, I was skeptical at first, I said to myself, I'll buy it, if I dont like it I'll just sell it cheap, but it turned out ok afterall and I'm pretty happy with it :)

Yeah, I like it for that reason too. I have pieces of chrome here and there (well, since the trunk trim was chrome, I went and bought chrome license plate frames). I like the chrome "wing" you have, but I really don't think it'll look nice on mine for the reason I stated earlier
