    I bought some cheap wheels and springs for the Yaris to help in the looks department....

    I have a set of Tanabe DF springs to install tonight, it was raining like hell last night and I wasnt about to stay out in the rain long enough to install the springs. :)

    I'll have better pics later.

    how much do you get a tank?

    a buddy of mine bought a hatch with all the options. its freakin anemic and sounds like an aluminum can in the rain.

    my Yaris is firm, and well built. Tolerances are tight, and the roof sounds solid. The doors, however, are flimsy.

    I've got Kosei K1's for the Yaris.

    I get 400ish to the tank if I drive it VERY easy the whole time. If I whip around the mountain roads by my house it will guzzle it a lil bit more, 325-350 to a tank then.

    It actually sounds alright when you get on it but it DOES NOT like the wind at all. The car gets tossed all over the place. With the wheels on already it feels a lot better on the highway. After lowering it tonight we'll see if it corrects it even more.

    so its an econ car that isnt really great on gas. a stock 10 year old mirage gets almost 400 to an 11 gallon tank.

    my 2000, heavily worked will get atleast 350 everytime, same 11 gallon tank :)

    you'll have to excuse my friend Chris there... If something doesn't directly affect him, he doesn't care at all.


    Yaris FTW !
