My friend you bought one of the best cars in the world.. a very solid and reliable car. I know because my Mom has one and it impressed me, the last good car Toyota ever made.
beige corolla with gold highlights?

I sprayed the 3M clear shield on the hood, should have painted the whole hood.

The yaris is not perfect but saves so much gas than the corolla, I love it.

How much do you save vs the corolla?

The center mounted console kicks ass, took me a month to realize it was in the new place, it was just so intuitive.

Who are you hiding in white blocks?

So I should have gotten bigger higher tires? I went to the miata tire calculator and it said this size was acceptable.
so I need to cut my springs to make the car lower? can I put some salt bags in the trunk to close the wheel gap?

That's one sick ride. I'll take it that the whited out areas are just some ladies that you are hanging with.

You may have the only Yaris in the world with a trailer hitch..bonus! Rare!

OP, how much did you sell your corolla for ?
I was selling the corolla for 3000 and some guy came and offered 2500. I squeezed him another 100 and it was a done deal at 2600. So basically for another 600 out of my wallet I get newer wheels that doesn't suck that much gas like the 1.8.

He's blocking the steering wheel and the back of the headrest, so it's not ladies, more likely hello kitty steering wheel cover and headrest.
