    Dramatic looking car for 150 bhp. 

    I know. Smiley Probably the reason why he liked it. The interior is spectacular in this price class.

    I love it. I cant think of a better car in these conditions.

    Normaly in Austria a car like the 720s sits in the Garage from end Oktober till beginning of April. In these 5+ month you wait and wait and wait for good weather to do some spirited driving again. But now with the GR Yaris I can do my Sunday morning runs year round and the roads right now are perfect. No cyclists, No motorbikes, No Sport Cars only a few comuter. Shure you have salt, dirt, sand, gravel, and also a few snowy parts but with the Yaris you dont care.

    Yes my wife also doesnt like the car. The interior, the image and the exterior angry. I dont care. I would give away the 997. The Yaris is so much fun when driven spirited.

    You describe much of Canada as well; we have the 911 waiting for almost exactly the same time period. And our Subaru STi, soon to be 10 years old, is used for exactly the same purposes as your new Yaris; having fun with AWD power, an intelligent traction system, snow tires, all in crappy winter conditions.  It doesn't see much use in summer, but my wife still has interests in a farm property, and occasionally has to do trips out to the farm in growing season, ~150 km return trip mostly on gravel roads; she usually says "I'm taking the rally car... bye...".  Smiley

    Ouch!

    robert_mitchell The truth of the matter is yesterday morning I overrev’d the engine and afterwards it ran perfectly. It didn’t go to the moon but above redline by about 1000rpm from what I could tell.
    -
    After that it ran fine, it did 5 more strong laps but today I lost power on my warm up lap... maybe whatever was damaged today froze last night and didn’t like thawing out this morning 🤣
    -
    So any of you w a Yaris you should be very worried if you f’ up a shift and send it singing.... otherwise this thing is an absolute blast, I’m so happy to have it and this just means mine cost a bit more than yours...
    -
    As of now we know the nr 1 cylinder doesn’t have compression. W borescope you cannot see any damage to the piston or cylinder walls. Could be lucky w just a bent valve. Either way I’m sure all valves and springs will be replaced at a minimum.


    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Sturdy little engine.  I recall a couple of decades ago, a similar over rev story involving a nearly new 911.  A Father purchased the 911 as an eighteenth birthday gift for his son.  He had the car for less than two weeks before it was back at the dealership with twelve bent valves.  The young man was doing about 140 mph when he downshifted into second. Surprisingly, Porsche did cover the repair costs. 


    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Maybe that was before the DME could prove you overrevved it...


    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    mcdelaug:

    Maybe that was before the DME could prove you overrevved it...

    That’s how the dealer reported the downshift into second from 140 mph and yet Porsche still covered the repairs. 


    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Miss-shifting(to 3rd instead of 5th) damaged the bearings and rocker arm.

    02:25​ Bits and pieces everywhere!

    04:24​ What did I actually damage?

    06:11​ So why did the motor break?

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    a lot of. For these type of roads the car needs no modifications. The only two comlains are the seating position which is too high for the average european guy and also the rear view mirror position. For the mirror there is a fix available  https://tgrperformance.com/gr-yaris-mirror-riser/

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Relatively inexpensive car is the greatest driver’s car of the year, if not the decade.  That really puts things into perspective as a number of more expensive cars fail to delight.

    The Megane RS is manual...and under 08min without being AWD. The chassis of the GR is tuned for rally mode and what you need on NS is a chassis for track. Different world.

    The Volkswagen Golf R is worth a look too and North America will receive a manual variant of that car.  The Volkswagen  will, of course, be more expensive but as a daily driver, its added creature comforts could be worth the expense.

    I hadn't heard that US gets a Manual Golf R Smiley

    Sounds like the Toyota may have a more entertaining AWD system, but Golf R will be nice more upscale option Smiley

    Yaris GR has a better AWD system than the Golf R but only a 3 cyl engine. The Golf R will be its real competitor as the A45 is way more expensive. I think the Golf R is a great winter car but VWs are a bit dull to drive.

    Golf R is already quite reasonable priced in Canada, ~$50kCAD, $35kCAD for such a car would be quite unreasonably cheap.
