Going back through old pictures like mhackett. Found a load of pics of the Corolla. Greatest car I ever owned. Spent years and years saving and searching for the right one, and enjoyed every minute of the time I owned it. Still have a weep every time I think back to the state I left in after the smash, but talking to the lad I sold it to and she's not far off being back on the road again......so the saving can start all over again to buy it back hahaha

That's a nice Altezza. I will have to own a four cylinder, beams, manual one yet. They are a bit out of my price range.

altezzas are only going up in price, and a good clean fit one is hard to find these days went to look at 5 others before this one.

I've had my mothers Yaris for a few weeks while she's been away, treated it to 4 new tyres, a new wiper blade, a bloody good clean inside (my brother was using it as a van so it was a tip!!), and a wash today. giving it back tomorrow. nice little drive but the 1.0L engine is painfully low on power!

She traded down to the 2012 yaris from a 2009 Avensis Auto 1.8 petrol she had from new, the Avensis was lovely but the 4 speed auto box in the petrol version very uneconomic on motorways!

I drove one of those Yaris for a couple of days. 2014 though but same shape and 1.0 3 cylinder engine. Nothing spectacular but nice enough, I thought.

Why they changed it to a 3 cylinder unit is beyond me. The mk1 Yaris had a lovely 4 cylinder 1 liter engine. It was great little package in the sense that it offered a lot of the benefits of the larger 1.4 vvti in a smaller and cheaper to run engine.

The 3 cylinder by comparison is less refined and just not near as good imo.

Maybe to get emissions down?
