    According the FB the rear diff is around ~2.4k for the complete bolt in replacement unit. Cant see front being cheap though.

    Running a few sums Launch price to launch price (base to rallye) you're looking at around $317 additional monthly repayment over 5 years (@ 5%). Lot of money for realistically bugger all.

      They said the same about the first evos and wrx's.

      First wrx ws $46k or something, which is about $85k in todays money.

      And the base model yaris is now $26k too remember.

        STI, Golf R, Focus RS Limited (Tricky diffs included) are all around $56k they are a class bigger car than the Yaris and therefore traditionally acceptable as being more expensive. The first WRX may have been $46K but the current WRX is actually cheaper than that so not really a good argument to justify why the Yaris should be more expensive.

        Toyota is also talking about a Corolla GR given the Yaris pricing that would indicate it's potentially going to be a $60-70K car which sees it sit at a premium to badges which have more cred/appeal than Toyota.
        If in doubt power out

          I wonder if the front one makes all the difference though? I guess if the cost of parts is $5k (and there was talk of 15-20 hours labour) its really a 7-8k job. At that i think the Rallye is justifiable..

          Zero interest in Golf R, STI or Focus RS

            you'll get the front and rear diffs aftermarket for sub 2K each. The EA60 quaife LSD (without the side spline for AWD transfer) is $1400. Gearbox can be removed without dropping the whole engine. Add a new set of bearings and some shims which aren't much, then find a friendly transaxle specialist if you aren't capable of doing the install yourself. One gearbox guy I know charges ~1K for LSD install into a box like that if you drop him the box/diff/bearings

              Great info... I'm useless so it would need to be a start to finish operation. I suppose the smart thing would be to take delivery of std GR, fit big sticky tyres, see how it goes on track, see what aftermarket support is like if it needs diffs, then make a decision.

                  COMING 2021
                  Rallye Edition


                  In further homage to the WRC, a highly-exclusive All-New GR Yaris special edition will be launching next year with unique red stitched sport seats and 200kW of power.

                  The All-New GR Yaris Rallye comes with a $56,200^ driveaway introductory offer for the first 200 vehicles. Once those vehicles have sold, the All-New GR Yaris Rallye will be available for $60,724* driveaway.
                  Reading on FB sounds like some features are also being stripped out of the Rallye over the base

                    This is it. Toyota by selling the first 1000 at a discount have now set peoples expectations that the Yaris GR is a $40k car so telling people the Rallye is $16k more is going to be a hard pill for most people to swallow. But in reality the standard GR is $50k per regular pricing so the Rallye is only $6k more and probably represents a fair price difference at regular pricing but Toyota have shot themselves in the foot by selling so many at a massive discount initially.

                    I get the marketing reasons but I reckon they over did it. Probably should have sold the first 1000 at $45k or done a much smaller number say 100 at $40k.
                    Great point. Victim of its own success!

                      You mean they all 'were' that price a couple of years ago, they don't even make any of those cars now although technically the Golf R and WRX STi are still available 'new' as they try to offload the last old stock before the new models arrive, both WRX STI and Golf R were more like $60K driveaway prices, especially once you have a couple of options added.

                      Cars across the board have definitely got more expensive in the past year or two, even small cars you used to be able to easily get sub $20K like the Mazda 2 and Honda Jazz now start over $20K even for entry level models and they haven't even updated those models yet. Larger hatches like Corollas, i30s, Mazda 3 and Cerato type stuff are now starting well into the $20K range these days.

                      The GR Yaris is expensive for the size of the car but I think it's niche and focused enough that it should also hold it's value reasonably well to compensate. Looking at the Focus RS which is similar to a GR Yaris in many aspects and it's enthusiast appeal, that has held it's value pretty well, even considering some bad press with stuff like the headgasket issue, compared to say a Golf R of similar age which has more of a mass market appeal but also seems to drop much more in value over the longer term.

                        Just got an email about the Gazoo Racing Club, presumably they are sending it to everyone with a GR Yaris order.

                          I signed up for updates about the club thing. Looks interesting, hopefully the events are spread across the country, not just in Sydney. Will no doubt be full of wankers, like a lot of clubs, but should be ok.

                            whilst the pricing of the rallye was kinda expected, at 16k more and late next year delivery that's a massive pass from me.
                            Thats a hard pass on a black one. My car washing skills are not good enough to own a black car!
