That'd add some zip to your wheels, haha. Do I see engine mods on the horizon?

Re: xB's euro cousin: Toyota Yaris Verso/FunCargo

I wish!

Nah, not in the near future... But it's very pleasing to see that when the day comes, it's as easy as placing an order online, pay your money, and wait for a box of horsepower to arrive.. sort of

This kit is for the 1,5L, I have the 1.3L, but they are so similar that the supercharger kit is a straight fit for mine. On the other hand, a low mileage 1,5L engine can be had for $500, so the best bet for engine mods is to buy one of those, put it on a stand and rebuild/modify that. Then do a complete transplant when all is done. Going from 86 horsepower to 180+..

But first things first. Still have to do a lot to this car to pass inspection that is coming up. And vinyl wrap it, and add graphics as it is a work van for my business

Re: xB's euro cousin: Toyota Yaris Verso/FunCargo

Yes indeed! It has to be done by the end of November, so getting an overview as soon as possible needs to be done.
It will probably cost more to fix than the actual car did, but only because the car was so cheap itself.

Looking into options and designs for a vinyl wrap now. I really like the dual color scheme on this, and how it has been divided:

It's not in great shape, but it will be with time, effort and off course, money

Over here, when you scrap a car the gov pays you about $500. But car dealerships often have sales campaigns where you get $2-3000 in trade-in for your old "wreck" as long as it is road legal and registered, if you buy a brand new car. This is a car like this. I bought it "as is" for about $800 That included the $220 in fees to change ownership of the car.

This is what I picked up from the dealership, it must have been a couple of years since it was washed:


The car is registered as a 2-seater "van" with a metal divider between passenger and cargo area. It has most probably spent most of it life delivering pizzas as a commercial vehicle.

Now it will be fixed up, vinyl wrapped. lowered and all the rest of the things necessary to make it a cool company car for my signmaker/car graphics business. Can't wait
I wish they sold this in the United States. I LOVE this car at first sight. I am an xb first Generation owner. I cant say how much I love my car.

Re: xB's euro cousin: Toyota Yaris Verso/FunCargo

I'll try to take some pics of the inside soon, it has a lot of quirky little features. Right now I've lent it to a friend, so he doesn't have to ride his scooter to work. We've had terrible weather here the last days.

Spoke to him yesterday, and he had fixed the exhaust system, removed all the zipties and steel wire that held it up, and welded new fixing points where the OEM ones had rusted away. Sweet! $300 saved on new mufflers and labour. More money for mods!

Re: xB's euro cousin: Toyota Yaris Verso/FunCargo

Yep! It's due for inspection in September, so not too much time to get it in order. After that is done, it's two years until next inspection, so then you can modify it as long as you put it back to stock by inpection time.

Wondering how much you would need to spend on a decent air ride setup?

Re: xB's euro cousin: Toyota Yaris Verso/FunCargo

Lots of cars on air over here, but mostly Audi/Volkswagen/Mercedes

Need to have the car ready by spring, so it will make an impact at the Gatebil festival.. But as you can see, the bar is set pretty high

Re: xB's euro cousin: Toyota Yaris Verso/FunCargo

Wouldn't call it a hobby, it's my job I have my own design/graphics/wrap business.

Here's one I did earlier.. 1070 whp! You can see my logo on the sideskirt:
