  1. Anyone who watch the Mighty Car Mods 'Yaris Hilton' series, would love that factory hotted Yaris. No wonder they sold out the concept is already proven.

  2. If the Renault Megane RS Trophy were available in the US I would snap it up in a heartbeat. Instead we get a bunch of Nissans nobody wants.
