a guy from portaferry had ordered 3, yes 3 of them one for the garage never to be used one for the daughter/son and other for himself to drive everyday.was gold that today from guy out of toyota.
Was your chat with a local Toyota dealer or Toyota uk? I may have to push the button as well as the waiting list is getting longer. Last I heard it was October 21.Just had a superb chat with Toyota. Called to get my build date, which is May 2022 - a lifetime away but future Cooper should be pleased.
I couldn't believe the knowledge/enthusiasm of the chap at the other end of the phone. He was able to tell me random facts like the car is being built in the same factory as the A80 Mk4 Supra. Also the 20/21 allocation is only 1800, and yes its unknown how many Toyota will build for 2022, but considering the likes of the mk3 Focus RS did nearly 6000 units for the UK, it bodes well.
They will have to build 25000 for WRC homologation.
Allegedly it is a near loss the car itself. Interesting to see. Test drive at the weekend!Will be interesting to see what Toyota do with number, 1st time they've been in this position in a long time. You'd think they'd keep numbers tight and values high, but then again they've developed the car for rallying and now they're only pay off will be from the GR so maybe they will sell everyone they can.
The quick German hatchbacks wouldn’t see where the Yaris went down a B road. And it’s not about outright pace. It’s how accessible the performance is in any conditions and how at ease it comes for the driver.I still can’t get my head around the fact it’s only
1 - A 1.6
2 - A 3 cyl
3 - 260 hp or whatever it’s rated at .
I know it’s all about the weight / drive but for the past 10 years everything has been 300+ and min a 2.0 ltr.
I’ve since realised that if anyone other than you has this out on test then me fist pumping out of a moving vehicle has probably come across as quite strange to the driverThe quick German hatchbacks wouldn’t see where the Yaris went down a B road.

I’ve ordered one. I’m keeping my order. That’s enough for me! I did take a wee bit of footage so as long as it doesn’t sound or look too cringey I will post it up later!
