Not relevant in performance at all but for the 4WDs the reality is there are few people who are on the fence about buying an OEM accessories vs aftermarket- they are usually one or the other. We will get there but I have to admit its the hardest part of my job convincing them that they would sell half of their Landcruisers if there was no aftermarket accessories for them
      It is frustrating that SEMA generally has the support of the OEM's, so the aftermarket can have good quality products available almost as the car is going on the market. Where as over here, with the exception of the ford/herrod relationship & a few others, we are seen as the ugly step children of the industry.

          I’d love to see more of those style of vids, Luke. Might be a good you tube sideline (For you) and a good way to sell cars ( for the manufacturers).

            Thanks for the feedback lads. I’ll make an effort to do some more content with the teardown on our cars.

              Yaris now the current front page of the Toyota website.. with the GR4 that you can no longer buy.. well until the Rallyeye comes.

              Looks like the model was mainly a PR exercise as the hero, to get people to buy the base models (which is failing dismally at the higher prices). Seems like they will sell more GR4 than the entire base models this year. Did they hire ex-Holden marketing people or something?

                All seem to be new and not demos. Definitely wait to see what happens to prices after today when the Rallye will go on sale.

                    So they're not making any more, what happens re insurance if yours gets nicked or written off I wonder?

                    Anyone got a price on full comp yet?

                      I tried a few insurance companies for a prospective quote just to get an idea for budgeting and most didn't even have it in the database, but NRMA did and I think it was around $825 year comp with $850 excess and market value of $49,500.

                        I'd say you get a payout, but I'm not an insurer so actually have no idea. Would be pretty hard to get a new replacement.

                        I've looked at Allianz, NRMA, RACQ up here and they all have it listed ready to quote. NRMA was the best for me (only $510/yr, very surprised!), under half the price of Allianz.

                            JB BE setting tyre pressure with that 1.11, what rubber on these stock?

                            High 1.08 to low 9 is what I'd expect.....

                                Yeah I rekon it should do a 9.

                                As far as I know its totally standard.
