Hoahmaru, which dealer did you go to in Calgary and quoted you for $600? On the toyota.ca website, under customization, that costs over $900. Maybe you can help me...? I am talking CAD $. Do you have a deal with them?

Hi I'm new. I'm officially Jealous of all you stick shift owners...wished in socal, more dealerships would sell more stick-shifts than autos...but oh well, I'll deal with it.

Well heres mine, about 3 1/2 months with it and loving it. Nothing special, no mods...thinking about it, but don't know if I should do it since its only a lease.

This picture is only a few weeks after I got it, I'll post more recent ones later.



More to come later~

Actualy no I didnt have to. I thought I did cause it sure seemed liek I had to but, no.

It took me aout 5 mins to figure it out and do it.

All You have to do is, take of the top plastic caps/screws, then gently lift and pull back a lil, and I saw where hte emblum was hooked on to. Then I grab my flat head screw driver and just push down on the hooks that where on top. then I gently pulled the top off and wiggled the bottom to come off. and wala! it was off.


Here are some pics:

Excuse the pic resulution. I took them from my camera phone. Was too excited and slaped it on right away. Took me about 5 mins.

And that is a good thing why? I would rather feel low to the ground than high up.

Remember, one reason SUVs are so popular is that the seating position is so high, it's easy to see the road and your surroundings. (and makes you feel so haughty and important you drive an an a-hole )

The Yaris is after all being sold as a cheap reliable commuter car, designed for ease of living, in which case the high seating and high suspension is quite useful, giving a very good view of the surroundings.

For some people including yourself and I, we are more hot-headed than the demographic Toyota intended for this car. Hence, we wish it were more sport car-like, and would prefer lower seats and suspension, we don't mind losing a bit of visibility, so we pay for that kind of feature out of our pocket

Oh and Idjiit, the low seats and suspensions were a bit hard to adjust in the beginning, especially as the dash and door sills are quite high! The first time I drove it like this I ended up parking about 2 feet away from the curb Definitely not for vertically-challenged people But being closer to the road does give a much more dynamic driving feeling.

I dunno. I prefer being lower to the ground. Makes me feel more comfortable. one thing the designers messed up on is the windows. 1st issue is that if you role them down the air hit the door from inside slowing ur ass down a lot. Plus makes a wierd noise and makes the car rock, whitch is uncomfortable. 2nd issue is that theres so much window that the sun can get in ur way on some spots and the visor cant do shit about it.
