I seen a toyota Yaris t-sport the other day and i loved it!

im am going to be the 2.0 conversion to my fiesta but after seeing how cheap the t-sports go for and considering there a 1.5 with vvti and 115bhp and can easily see 125 with exhaust and filters and being vvti they rev awesomely! i pay £900 on my insurance on the 1.1 and with a 2.0 conversion it will kill me but the yaris is group 7 and will be £1100 a year! bargain!

it comes down to the new/old car debate as the Yaris will be newer and in many respects better but you will pau a premium.

How much are the Yaris' going for these days?

I think they aren't very popular in that respect is because they are very soft looking, like a cuddly bear. So they are a wolf in sheeps clothing

I believe they are very similar in performance to the C2 (less power but less weight) and for that kind of money I would say go for it.

i am im starting saving dont wanna go into finance so just gonna buy one outright. ever single review ive read have all said the handling is absolutely amazing for a standard car and they could benefit highly from a 6th gear! also can be supercharged and still be a typical reliable jap!

The C2 has more power per CC but I will let that go as it is 1 insurance group less.

I would say look up the C2 VTS and Renault Twingo Sport as all 3 are very similar.

i think the vts would be ruled out due to the "Vts" badge plus for some reason i love the quirky looks of the yaris t-sport plus they look lush when all JDM'd up.

i know i would love to convert my 1.1 to a 2.0 but thinking logically today i dont wanna run around as it not declared i would no way in hell be able to afford it as a 2.0 converted as im only 19 and sorry to say i cant afford every year to have the car welded up and worry about the winters and mot's every year. and ive always been open to other car manufacturers and i love cars that are under estimated and that you dont see around every corner that why i love my mates 1.4 AX Gt on compomotives.
