i think the 130bhp is turbo'd!

my mates got a twingo limited Etd 1.6 N/A and it kept up with a Starlet turbo no problem! nuts its just the power to weight ratio is brilliant.

Well just went on Yarisclubuk.com and im chuffed to beans! theres some immaculate ones going for £2,500/£3,000 theres even a supercharged one pushing 150bhp! in a 800kg car thats nuts!
so will be breaking the bits off the rattler when the moneys saved up and then selling it as a standard car :D

What power do the Yaris' get up to with 'standard' mods (induction, exhaust etc)

I believe the are 108bhp standard with the VTS and twingo are 125bhp and 130bhp

What wrong with the VTS badge out of interest? (just pull it off and make it look like a 1.1) never heard anybody have a problem with it apart from when the word Saxo is included.

What kind of mileage does that money get you?

well by the looks of things they respond pretty well to the usual filter, 4 branch, decat and exhaust and its all HKS and blitz stuff and i woulda thought you could push for 115/120 and it has the variable cam timing like a mini vtec :chill: . i didnt mean i had a problem with the vts badge the insurance do lol ive read up the insurance is quite low for the t-sport due to them not being deemed as a "boy racer" car. Well i seen one modded with all the listed things above and a set of 5zigen wheels for £2,600 with 97k but its all stamped and had a major service by toyota, and then on piston heads i found one for £3,100 standard with 58k. but ive done a bit of reasearch and theres no apprent major problems or engine reliability issues all the major reviews like auto car express and the like are raving about the reliability.

It doesn't effect insurance dude, the VTS is only group 8 (because its quicker mostly).

That is still quite high mileage:

I would pick the Twingo - T Sport over the VTS Purely for looks.

Even when someones goes to the darkside percy you still persuade them to something else :P

I am just promoting thinking about it nothing more.

What kind of rate are you saving at? how long do you think it will take to get 3K 4K etc, as things may change if its a longish time, 2 sometimes it worth saving a few more months to get a better example (lower mileage etc)

I wouldn't go down the loan route. Problem occur, things change, situations, I've done it, then been stuck with no job and a £500 maxed out overdraft a blown up car and being generally screwed. Although i've borrowed the money for the ZS from my grandad, your best bet is to earn the money and pay for it outright, that way theres no interest and no chance that suddenly everything changes and your screwed! lol

i dont think they quite have that image. the t-sports when modded look like a little quick jdm car. plus theres one on there that has a starlet engine pushing 250bhp :insanity:
i know the fez has the character but im getting bored theres no real engine conversions i can do without being raped on insurance plus the constant worrys at mot's and shelling out for welding is starting to do my nut in.

I think theissue is power though. But not so muxh insurance is mega high. Obvi 1.1 isn't the most powerful thrilling drive after a while
