    Not been on here for a while.

    Nice to see people are starting to order the new A3 / S3.

    After waiting for the reviews, and now seeing them, I've take the plunge and ordered the new Yaris GR-Four.

    Seeing what Toyota have done to this car, and all the bespoke equipment they've added to it with the full time AWD system, trick Diffs with the `Track pack` (Ordered) it was too much to resist. Reviews are all great, and I don't think a car like this will be built again.

    So, decided to order one, and it'll be a weekend toy, and a long term keeper.

    I know it's not an Audi, but as a fellow contributor and we're all enthusiasts, I'd thought I'd share

    I watched the car wow review today and was very impressed. It’s not really a Yaris is it, more of a bespoke road legal rally car.

    You’ll have to keep us updated.

    Reminds me of the Scoobs / Evo's of old. 250hp and less than 1300kg will be a lot of fun.

    What an inspired choice of car :icon thumright:

    It does look tremendous & heaps of fun.

    Many of us long term Audi owners drifted towards other brands of late and for good reason but yes we can all still bring something to the table here & we all love the ASN vibe :)

    Agree snake. A great weekend weapon, and does take me back to the days of homologated models being released so they could be entered in various series/rallies etc.

    They'll be plenty of pics posted once it arrives.

    I watched the Carwow 0-60 run, and I'm pleased you need to change into third to hit 60, rather than them extending 2nd gear to hit a better 0-60 time.

    I `think` GR performance parts are going to be available for this car too. Hope that's true, as I'll be buying some.

    Thanks mate,

    Yeah, I drifted to BMW in January. Nothing from Audi inspired me. I'll keep the BMW for a while as it's a great all round car. Yaris purely for fun. Can see me having this for 10+ years.

    I also wanted a fun / quick car before 2022 when the silly speed restrictors come in.

    I did think about putting a deposit on one of these when they were announced, but being a `Fast Ford` fan, I had hoped this would give Ford the kick up the backside it needed, and produce an AWD Fiesta RS. But doesn't look like it. Though I think the ford would have been £40k+ rather than £33.5k for the Yaris. Amazing value for what they've produced.

    Nice car mate. That's going to be a 'hoot' to drive.
    I hope you are going to do it justice and take it on many track days.:thumbs up:

    Only have one track near me. Croft.

    I don't mind hammering someone else's car round a track, but mine will be purely for the road I think. But never say never .....

    What a great track, shame BSB dumped it. I was there when Leon Haslam came back from about a 10 second deficit in the wet to beat Bomber Harris for the win. What a track. Incidentally it was the same year I binned my Fireblade.

    Great choice.

    Noticed across a few forums that I am people have ordered these instead of the normal hot hatches.

    Reviews are amazing. Sure it will be worth the wait. What colour did you for?

    That Yaris will be a better drivers car than anything VAG offers currently..it will be a proper bundle of fun, and kudos for you going for something against the grain
