Ask and ye shall...um, get.

Here, per request, are some interior shots of the little Yaris. Behold, it's hatchness!

It's no Audi A6, but this is still a very inviting interior--and I love spending time here. The seat bolstering is very firm, but not hard. You don't slide around in u-turns, you are planted in the bucket seat firmly.

The seats are firm, but still comfortable. Only Mercedes does this better, based on my limited seat-time in them.

The steering wheel is very chunky, and feels "just right" in your hands. There are very small, subtle "finger grab grooves" (?) for your fingers, and turn-in is outstanding in this class. The stalk controls/turn signals/lights/wipers have slight index finger indentations that just fit perfectly, and allow effortless leverage when you twist them (lights on left, wiper spray on right).

The gearbox is only 4-5 inches from the steering wheel base, so rapid shifts are there for the taking--if you want to do so.

Again, the "new" has started to wear off, but I am still very pleased. The Yaris is still a great place to spend a few hours driving, listening to MP3s (thumb-drive in the glovebox), and just enjoying yourself.

This thing is a huge improvement over the gen 2 car. I'm so happy I bought one!

What VLT rating is that? 20%? I have the darkest legal tint in my state, 33%, and it's lighter than that. Would have prefered something like yours. Looks awesome with the graphite paint.

Very nice look. I had a 5% VLT rating on one car but I kept getting tickets so I broke down and removed it from the side front windows. It was difficult to see through at night while turning.

Thanks

Alloys are standard (local XS and XR - like mine - spec), but the leather I had done after market for around $600. Stitching matches the steering wheel and hand brake's.

, Great color for the 3 door . Is that a 1.3 ltr. or the 1.5 ltr. engine ? What weight oil is on the oil cap / stated in the owners manual ? Alloys do wonders . Thanks and enjoy .
