  2. 2011 Toyota Yaris T Spirit Metallic Black For sale is my wife's Toyota Yaris T Spirit: 2011 61 Plate registered in September 20112 owners but it was bought as a pre-reg so we are the first real ownersT Spirit specification1.33 litre Petrol Engine, 101BHP, Stop start systemManual Transmission 6 speed5 Doors12,200 miles (might go up as it is in use daily)Metallic BlackFull Toyota Service History (serviced in September 2012 and September 2013)Warranty until September 2016Tax until September 2014 (£30 to tax)MOT not required until September 2014Here is a list of the fitted kit: Power SteeringAlloy wheelsParking SensorsBody coloured bumpers and mirrorsFog Lights6 speed gearboxRake and reach adjustable steering wheelRev CounterMP3 Player with USB connection / 3.5mm jack connectionSteering wheel audio controlsElectrically adjustable mirrorsElectric WindowsCentral LockingRear seat moves forwards/backwards to increase spaceSatellite Navigation6 speaker stereo FM/MW/LWAir conditioning with climate controlHeated rear windscreen and MirrorsSpace saver spare wheelJack and tool kitLocking wheel nutsCarpet MatsBoth Keys and the logbookEVERYTHING WORKSMechanically: Mechanically the car is in excellent condition. There are no bumps, grinds, squeaks or rattles. All wheel bearings are good. The gearbox does not crunch. The clutch is fine, brakes do not judder. The stop start system works. The car drives perfectly and will return around 50mpg. The car has had an oil change every 6 months with Mobil 1, the gearbox oil gets changed every year, along with coolant and brake fluid. The suspension, ball joints etc are all in good condition. Interior: Interior is in good condition. The car has never been smoked in and never had any pets in it. There are some scratches to all interior plastics but this is mainly wear and tear. The seats are in good condition. Electrics Everything works and the air conditioning blows cold. Bodywork: There are stone chips to the front of the vehicle. There are also a few small scratches and chips along the sides of the vehicle. The car is in good condition for its age. There are a couple of scuffs on both wing mirrors (Pictures taken) but that is about the extent of damage. Alloy wheels and Tyres: The alloy wheels are starting to bubble at the centres on all four wheels. This seems to be a common problem on Toyota wheels. I have tried to take pictures but they do not really show up that well. They do not compromise the wheel but if you want them cosmetically perfect they will require refurbishment. One wheel has a small amount of kerb damage on a spoke. The tyres all have plenty of life left in them, they are the original dunlop tyres and none have been repaired Nobody under the age of 23 has gotten into the vehicle, we have no pets and do not smoke. The cigarette lighter has never been used. It has got stone chips on the front and a couple of supermarket door dings on the side. If you are really picky you could get these taken out. All of the paint is original and it has not been in any crashes or smashes. There is no finance on the car but the winning purchaser can make their own enquiries if they wish. Inspections/Test Drives The car is available for viewing in Grimsby. N.E. Lincs. If you would like to inspect or go for a test drive please telephone 07811 907 165. Test drives will require insurance. £7250

  4. check the bulb and then check you've got power going to it. if not then it'll be a fuse 99% of the time
  5. @corollaD4D Running a smaller pulley equals more boost and consequently more power. The problem is you generate a bit more heat by doing that but in my case I have a very large intercooler so the heat gain is negligible. @scott Even if you bolt in the MR2 gearbox, you've got FWD and the same driveshafts. Stress always finds its way to the weakest point - either the driveshafts or major wheelspin.
  6. It is about as much as I dare go with the transmission and drive shafts. I think the limit of the driveshafts is about 310PS, I'm just reliant on the tyres slipping! LOL. I'm not going to mod the car any more for more power hence my last update.
  7. Or get in through the boot.
  8. coat hanger through the door seal and open the door from the switch on the driver door.
  9. And for today's and probably the final update. 354PS for safer overtaking.
  10. You need the 255LPH fuel pump. Just be warned, a few people have tried to do the fuel pump mod and messed it up, broken regulators etc are not uncommon. so if you are going to do it be careful.
  11. LSD will not give me launch control or the ability to dial in more or less differential effect.
  12. Your a crafty.... indeed.
  13. And... the moment has finally arrived when 306PS is not enough. it didn't take too long! Hence I'm increasing the power. I have been busy tinkering and trying to figure out a way to get the power down. Low and behold an electronic differential (copied from a Subaru!)! not quite perfected it yet but it's a work in progress. The basic principle is as you hammer the throttle around a bend, it applies braking force to the front driven wheel if it senses slipping. This is not as easy as it sounds because brakes like to respond to digital signals and are essentially on/off - I need a sort of partial on feeling and that requires some high frequency modulation.
  14. might be useful if you put a jack under the wheel which you are doing, otherwise you'll have a job compressing the spring to get the droplink back on as the anti roll bar will move - I know from experience!
  15. The bit that is of interest if you have a NA car is from the cam cover, the two rubber hoses that come out of there will be the same no matter if you have a NA or a Supercharger.
