  1. Happy Birthday Woody27!

  2. O right surely still not that hard? basically undo battery, loosen belt and unplug and unbolt alternator?
  3. Easy as. Got a guide i can post up later. It is easier from the top. First you disconnect battery, unplug a plug from alternator and remove a cover and then a larger cable to alternator. Then it the adjustor bolt on top and the mounting for the adjustor arm and then one more bolt at bottom. That is the rough jist of it.

    Led Taillights

    Second as first are standard Phase 2 and second are LEDs
  5. Not quite right I'm afraid, electronic brakeforce distribution, by its very name means the braking force is distributed to the wheels according to need, there would'nt be any point of only working on the rears as the car would be all over the place in an emergency situation. There is a pdf download at the bottom of the page that shows how it works. For £350 it is well worth the money EDIT Sorry but TOC doesnt like the font in my document, I will try and resolve it later Kingo O right thought i'd read this about the old yaris somewhere before but apparently not.
  6. It's a 4mins in and it is the old yaris verso. Looks exactly like it if not VERY close?
  7. Upgrading braking is not such a bad idea but your wasting your time doing it on the rear. Uprated pads and discs are often cheaper than OEM replacements and outperform them. The front/rear brake bias is something in the order of 75/25 so uprate the fronts and it'll be more than adequate. Braided lines may add some additional tightening as may a brake cylinder stopper but they are a bit overkill though cheapish.
  8. Anyone know how advance the new yaris VSC is? For £350 i wouldn't expect that much from it? Accelerometers used as G meters would be a little extreme for a city run about? The old yaris' EBD was a bit tame tbh although standard on most models i believe. It was only on the rear two brakes and so didn't have much effect. I agree VSC is better than nothing but i don't think it will be as good as that shown in the video. However it should be more than adequate for the situations you'd see in a yaris being driven on the road in normal conditions. In all fairness if the conditions were as bad as in that video you just wouldn't drive!

    Yaris Spotting

    Keep seeing a black Tsport with morettes in birmingham. Workin up there atm so seen it around reservoir road/carlyle road kind of area.
  10. You sure his figure was quoted at the wheels as would assume it is at the flywheel with that kinda figure mate. If you get the value of yours at the flywheel im sure it will be a lot more similar!
  11. Yeah it is just those as described above. The top part of the bumper has two screws holding it to the boot and then it has two poppers holding it on. Bottom is two bolts holding it to car (underneath upper bumper) and two underneath. After that it should budge. If not check in case it is mounted anywhere along rear wheel arch but i'm pretty sure it isn't
  12. I think i personally prefer it with the front badge still on but it is personal taste as i also dont like the rear completely debaged (i left the toyota badges front and back though had the option to remove both).
  13. He sold car. But yeah unless you want the height adjustability of the tein basics dont bother as they aren't much better than the tein springs. You are better off on all accounts to buy the tein springs and then you could in future upgrade to adjustable dampening koni shocks which can be set as soft or stiffer than tein shocks!
  14. Well my dad owns a Fabia and me a Yaris so we aren't doing too bad between us :)
  15. Lol or just tint them yourselves as easy and only matt black if you dont laquer! If not ebay.de (Use free translator or they make speak english) or needforspeed though it seems they only have blue ones on there site now.
