Share what you did today with the Scion iA / Yaris iA community!

Example: I took her out of the garage and gave her a nice bath and followed up with a coat of wax.

Example: Finally got my window tints done, now I can't open my windows for a week

Example: Got new tires installed, now I am itching to take her out for a quick spin.

Anything goes....

Today I installed a Mazda2 hood liner and LED Upgrade Kit purchased from a dealership in the UK. I purchased the fasteners from a Mazda OEM distributor online here in the US. Expensive yes...worth it for me though for the "complete" look under the hood and to brighten up the interior without having to cut anything. I am a purist for OEM parts, I know they are more expensive I just feel better knowing they were designed explicitly for the vehicles and have a 1 year warranty.

I haven't been out to test it yet, I'm going to listen to it tonight. At idle I didn't notice too much but I will post back this evening.

About to drive 150 miles down to Louisville, aside from the monotony, it's not a bad drive at night. I like road trips, plus it's to see my girlfriend.

Unlike some people here, I'm enjoying my iA, I like the lightness, I like the engine noise (going to remove the muffler one of these days so I can hear it more) and the interior, it's a nice little home base for long drives. I'm use to unkempt beaters from the 90s so this is quite a change. It feels like a throwback, it makes me think of a 1963 Ford Falcon except more modern, I know that sounds kinda crazy, but it's a taught little sporty sedan that doesn't have too much more than what it needs and a lovely interior.

I watched my iA roll into the middle of a (thankfully) almost empty parking lot when my parking brake cable snapped while I was working... didn't hit anything but if we were busy and it did hit something I'd be complaining to Toyota a bit more than I already am. Parking it in gear from now on (even though it's not good for the trans) and I recommend you do he same because who knows how common this peoblem will prove to be (at 9,928 miles/production date 05/16)

Check out the ecoboost explorer too. I can imagine that Tahoe will be pricey. Explorer is a twin turbo v6 21hwy 365hp . Imagine putting aftermarket wastegates on that vrroooom pssshhh. I've always had v8s and I always wanted a twin turbo lol. But the ia is cool for what it is I enjoy it. I wish the dealers were more competent. Most of them don't even know it's a mazda

I just ordered the Mazda CX-3 all weather floor and cargo mat set for the iA. Measured the trunk versus the mat and it will fit in great. All I have to do is figure out how to black out the CX-3 logos now. With the turn in the weather here this will provide more protection and less maintenance over the carpet mats.

busy weekend...
added a little park radar/camera combo up front. only using the sensor part which has it's own speaker / beeper.
added a rear view mirror dash cam/reverse camera combo ... i know we have reversing camera.. but this will record while driving both front and back at the same time. Mounted the rear camera where there is a plastic cap next to existing camera... ran wire under trim all way up to the rear view mirror. Hard wired the power into fuse number five (cig lighter) using fuse tap...
got headlights and taillights smoked... blends in better with the whole front of mine now ;)

Tail lights

That looks dope led headlights? Did you notice any less light and do you have a pic of the taillights?
Haven't taken it out at night yet, but my headlights have LED's and they were already much brighter than the stock bulbs so shouldn't see a net loss.
Here's a couple of pics of the tail lights, with 921 LED bulbs in the reverse lights.
You can also see where i've mounted the rear camera for the dashcam just above the license plate ;)

Installed all-weather cargo and floor mats from a Mazda CX-3. Debating on how to/if I should black out the logos.
