    Echo HB (Yaris new model)
  1. Nice the one tagged "Veilside (1st gen) Kit- modded to fit 2nd gen" is my car. The gold echo, but it has the Veilside rear Spoiler now and decals down the side. Turns quite a few heads.
  2. I just heard yesterday that Toyota Japan has made a 'Bolt on' turbo kit for the 1.5l engine. Anyone heard anything? I was told that it was based on the turbo that is on the Yaris Turbo, and you should expect to bring your power up to around 150hp. The guys I know are heading to Japan in a bit and I can't wait to hear what they bring back. :D
  3. TEIN HA's, excellent choice, that's what I'm getting. :D Gotta let me know how you like em, mine are at least 3 months away. :(

    I picked up my car yesteraday from the shop. BUT the spoiler isn't on yet, it need some work to fill the factory mounts and make new ones.... Gonna try top get my exhaust done this week, as well as the window deflectors, and also get the spoiler on. BUT before I get any pictures it has to go to the shop for the shop decals too.... Hopefully next week I'll get some pics. :D So much for an 'inexpensive' car.....

    Anti Roll Bar

    I'll ask him next time I see him, but bare in mind I live in Canada, but the theory is TRD will not void a warranty. He has the whole TRD suspension package, so I'm unsure as to whether or not it is available seperately.

    Anti Roll Bar

    A guy I know has the TRD sway bar and swears by it, says it makes a huge difference in long turns. I haven't had the time to try it out myself tho.

    Damn I got shafted, my sideskirts looked so boring from toyota. Not that it matters it comes home tomorrow dressed in complete VeilSide anyways....

    What sideskirts are those? THey aren't the factory ones that came on mine..... Did you get the factory spoiler or a different one. The nicest thing between the LE and RS for me was the leather wrapped wheel, which fetches something like 1800 from toyota as a replacement part. :o Yours looks lower. <_<

    Veilside Kit!

    I sent my Echo HB to get the VeilSide kit 2 days ago. Only problem is my car is the new styling look, and the VeilSide kit fits the Old styling. The sides fit perfectly, the rear metal backing needs to be modified, and the front.... oh the front..... the VeilSide piece has to be cut into 3 sections, then widened, then the upper lip needs to be trimmed, and the whole unit then has to be attached to my bumper and then have the seams all smoothed over. It will look nice when it's done but it's a lot of work. But, hey, I'll be the only one in Canada with it. I can send you a pic when I get it back.

    I'm from, Vancouver, BC. I've been checking sites ever since I got the car, what I need is money. :D Thanks for those links, haven't seen all those.

    Thought I'd say from accross the ocean in Canada. Got a New '04 Echo HB RS, which translates roughly to a Yaris (new styling), I think. It's a 1.5l 5spd 5dr version. I've been reading posts here since I bought it. Not too many companies have much for them out here since the USA doesn't get the model, and since they've been around in Europe for a few years I'm glad I can learn from some people who've had them for a bit.
