Im in Yaris heaven..... (Special Edition Yaris)

So..... today I was driving past the local Rice Toyota dealership and I saw a modded yaris parked out front on display... I was like WTF? why are they selling a Modded yaris like that?

To my disbelief there it was....

THE ONYX










ABOUT
The Yaris ONYX, also known as the Toyota Yaris ONYX or simply the ONYX, is a limited run liftback. As of December 2008, there were plans to make only 200 such vehicles.
The ONYX, which is essentially a Yaris with exclusive Toyota accessories, is available only in black, and only as a 3-door liftback. Its availability will be limited to the Southeastern United States (specifically states North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida) and is available only through Toyota dealers.
The name “ONYX” refers to its dark color. ONYX stone is typically of a dark, black hue.

SIGHTINGS
On-location photos of the Yaris ONYX were taken in Southern Georgia, and the photos accompanying this entry are believed to be the only ones wherein the exterior of the ONYX isn’t hidden. Additional sightings were reported outside the port near Jacksonville, FL.

FEATURES
In addition to the black finish, the Yaris ONYX features a variety of ONYX-only features. These include:
- Bongiovi radio with iPod interface
- Enkei 17” wheels in dark chrome
- Carbon fiber dash-trim
- Window tint
- Stainless steel exhaust tip
- Euro rear spoiler
- Window tint
- Custom badging
- Bluetooth capacity
- Limited edition numbered key chain

This was one of two that they got and they got them yesterday, already sold one. It was retailing for about $16k with a $500 rebate....

It was very Nice.....
I wish I had 16k...

Dang, that's nice; but the ads I saw had lighted door sills that said 'Yaris' on them!

Still, had I known this was coming I would've held out and spent the extra money to get one. It's already close to what I've got...

Cheers! M2

Thats the first thing I told the guy who was trying so desperately to sell it to me....

ME: "They did all that to it, and yet they still couldn't be bothered to drop it just a little bit....??"
HIM: *blank stare*

Exactly. Unless someone who doesn't want to take the time to get their own choice of rims and not mind having a yaris that other people will own exactly identical, it's cool. You can buy this and just get a drop then it's done. But yah, I prefer buying a plain bone stock yaris and having my choice of everything. Still cool though. Always like black and the color of those rims are nice. I'm definately jealous of the CF trim!

*seems like they'd sell more of these in places like Cali and whatnot..
