I saw one here as well. Did not appeal to me, but husband loves black. Had we not already gotten him the blazing blue, this would have been tempting for him. It will always be a unique vehicle. If you love it that's all that matters. Enjoy your new Yaris.

Addendum to previous post by me

I am adding a few things to my ONYX. Previously, I said to leave it absolutely as-is. However, I have given that more thought (if you can believe I can actually think!).

Here is the deal. Add things but save the original parts and/or make mods that can easily revert to the original, so, if ever there is a good market for re-sale, the car is pristine original.

With that said, I intend to add new tail lights, tint the windshield, add fogs, add neon interior lighting, have custom graphic windshield ONYX logo, including the red stripes placed across the windshield. All of this is easily re-done back to the original whenever needed, with little work involved. Make sure the original parts (tail lights and fog light covers) are kept in a safe place.

Photos to follow.

This is never going to be a collectable. In fact in a few years it will likely be harder to sell because people don't like buying "modded" cars. Make it the way you like it and don't pretend you have a collector car.

New here today

found the site looking information on the Yaris Onyx...Love it. The one I saw had red orange stripes. I saw one on youtube with 300K on it already. Did I break any rules by posting this? Did not know how to search for a current post on this and posting from the link I originally found.

echo_hrs: if you remember, they had some some "special edition" Echos in BC for a while.. There probably had 600 made of them..

anyhow.. the Matrix TRD edition and the Celica TRD edition were both full of useless cosmetic mods. Not to mention you could steal the exhaust tip with a dime. lol

LOL! I saw these at a dealer here in Warner Robins, Georgia. The dealer has a row of at last ten of these at the very front of the lot, its crazy! Nobody has bought any yet. Been there for at least 6 months now. I saw them one day and it looked like a little fleet of blacked out Yarii... I thought the red stripe was interesting though. I had no idea this was a southeast thing. Maybe crap like this is why I still haven't seen a 2009 S model LB yet.

I've been readingpeoples post and i just wanted to throw in my tw cents. I bought the Onyx around teh end of may in Warne Robins GA. I got number 102. I can see teh point of it being a basic car that is no good to some. but for a person without a lot of money like myself,t is much more appealing than aother camry or yaris onthe roa. There is only 200, and not all are old. ive been all over GA since buying it and ive only seen one other in Warner Robins, and one in statesboro. It sticks out becuase it isnt liek very ther car. It is the most basic ode of yaris in black, with 3 thousand dollars worth of crap on it. I bought mine fo $16,500. I brought down the actual price to 13,800 and it only went up to my final price because of taxes and such, but thats expected on any car. I paid that for the custom rims, special tires, tint jb, lighted door sills, custom stereo system, euro spoiler, gas mileage, and to be singled out in a world where every other car you pass, you just. It i sa great car and worth the money if you truely love it like me.

I agree. It's a unique Yaris and looks good imo. There are bad, overdone Yarii out there: '09 Sema, Darth Maul Yaris, etc etc. The onyx is not one of them.

Rock it with pride imo!

I own a 2009 Toyota Yaris Onyx Edition and it is by far the best yaris made to date, im just starting to mod it further myself because there are a few things the Onyx lacks i.e. pwr doors and windows, security system...and a few other small detials, its a great drive and the sport tuned suspension responds well with the stock ride height and the curb weight of the car, i currently have 2 10" Rockford Fosgate P1 Punches occupying my trunk, thanks to the aftermarket JVS head-deck (stock) and ipod adapter (also stock) the door sills light up Blue and say "Onyx", just bought a Phillips H4/9300 8000k HID Bi-Xenon conversion kit so i should have it installed by next weekend (hopefully) will post pics of the yaris, check out my FB if you want to see some pics of the Onyx handling the colorado winters
