I used to have a Toyota Yaris 1.5 T-Sport, i couldn't help but heavily modified it!!!
You may have seen it on Harry EnfieldsSketch Show on BBC1 back in 2008



THE world of Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse is possibly the only place you'll find a pair of elderly
Jewish gentlemen presenting a rap radio show for Radio 3.
They contacted me via facebook and asked to have my yaris featured in there show.....
"The pair are elderly Jewish gents; radio presenters with a passion for rap, garden centres and a pimped-out Toyota Yaris.
" MY PIMPED OUT YARIS!!!!

Very arty photos, ought to be careful of those tints though. You can't have the front windows tinted really at all, I believe they have to let in 70% light (there abouts, not verbatim!).
Liable to be stopped/fined or at very least be made to pull the tints off at the roadside.

Just a friendly FYI.

It does look good though ;)

Total respect sukiyuen from one ex/retired car customiser.

I had a Suzuki Jeep painted in the same colour as your Yaris back in 1988 - spent over £30k on it - loads of money then and a darn sight more now. The passion never leaves.

Love your black up, but agree with Davec86, front dark tints look cool but are a Police no-no (70% light is correct). We done the same back in the 80's, but got pulled and had to remove. Very dangerous as well at night.

I was actually on my way back from Donnington car show in 2009 when a police van pulled me over and told me if i didnt remove my front window tinits there and then, i'd have my car taken away on the spot

So off came the tints. But within a week, they where putback on again!
I know it's trouble, but they look soooooooooooo good on!


Only trouble with the Up!, is you cannot control the passanger side window from the drivers side like i could with my Yaris! So when ever i see the po-po it's a BLOODYnightmare!!!!
HAHA

I do agree that they look good, it's a tough life for me, on one hand I do enjoy modding my car, and things aren't always smiled upon by the law, but on the other hand, that's what I do for a living!
Used to get some funny looks pulling up to the nick in a ratty old supercharged, stripped and decked polo! Haha

I'm sure it's fine, wouldn't sweat it, it does look great :)
I've just discovered that work *may* have not been paying me what they should have for the last 4 years, I'm hoping so as that will do nicely for my coilovers and a new set of shoes :D

The Black Dragon really does look fantastic. I personally like the tinted windows on the black car and the chrome mirror caps really set it off.
