    Funnily enough. !!!!

    Try to ignore the annoying Tw*t Archie, but the Yaris on track can certainly shift. Also goes to show the advantage of AWD on a wet surface.

    Removing Archie Hamilton from the equation that video was genuinely very impressive....the Porsche drivers must have wondered what the hell was happening. :huh:
    Congratulations @wab172uk :)
    Honestly I think I am getting too old for a car like this now, but doesn't mean I can't totally appreciate how good it is and what it can do. :icon thumright:

    Think this car is my middle ages (46) crisis car. Porsche is a stretch, so Yaris it is. Been hankering for a hot hatch to recapture my youth of hooning around on 3 wheels.

    I currently have a Renault Twingo 133 RS, while is great fun. But it is very stiff and can be quite uncomfortable. Not very fast either, so overtaking is proper old school. Hang back from the car in front. Then time it right to floor it, so by the time you get round the corner and onto the straight, you're carrying enough over-speed to get past them safely. :racer:

    I am almost 54 now and had what you could call my middle age crisis car when I was 50 - Civic Type R which actually I found quite civilised. I think I just needed to scratch that itch. :D
    Hey whatever makes you happy I say go for it. :thumbs up:

    Looks like a brilliant little car, are you going to do the HKS treatment on it? Was watching a youtube vid they have squeezed 475bhp out of it!!!

    Debating about modifying it. Not sure on engine, but Toyota are selling additional front splitter, side skirts and diffuser. Need to get some prices. Or if HKS come up with something similar?

    Exhaust will get changed, and with either change the wheels, or get the ones fitted re-sprayed a shade of Gold. Or maybe a set of White Compomotive wheels?

    Hi Mate,

    Yeah, as Nev says. I collect Monday 1st march.

    Been sat at dealers since 4th February.

    Taking Monday off to go for a drive around and get acquainted with the car.

    Be a surprise for my lass when she gets back from work. Kept it a secret since November.

    My dealer got their demo in. But I've been so busy I never got chance to take it out for a test drive. First drive will be in my car.

    Not sure if anyone has heard about Mr JWW?

    Apparently, his team phoned up Litchfield asking if they could have the suspension kit for his GR Yaris for free. Plus £25,000 for a one off video talking about the it. Then they wanted a cut of every kit Litchfield sold thereafter. Whether it was because of his video or not. Cheeky T**ts

    Heard this a few weeks back.
    Not sure who these clowns think they are.
    Why would Litchfield pay this idiot a penny
