  1. Help - Will A Baby Seat Fit A Mr2/celica?

    If its a Mk2 MR2 then a baby seat fits just fine. The general rule i believe is that if a car has a passenger side airbag then its illegal to have a baby seat in there. I used to have one in the MR2 all the time when taking my little one about. :) Ive attached a pic accordingly... ohh... the Celica has loads of space so easy to fit one in there as well.
  2. Bit Of A Problem

    So these LLR tyres are a must on these cars then? The car my bro has just picked up has a budget tyre on the rear drivers side but the rest are bridgestone jobbies. Would having just 1 rear non branded tyre affect the mpg much? Also what psi do you guys get the best mpg return on? Thanks in advance. :)
  3. Just found out on another forum from a chap who owns a taxi rank that they have 10 in their fleet and some have reached 250k before the batteries have totally died. :) Said in reality they are as economical as a decent TDi but they are great on wear and tear and road tax and utter rliability. :)
  4. Cheers for the reply. :) nahh got it from a private seller. first 2 stamps are from Toyota and the last one is from a specialist. Will be sure to make my brother take it to Toyota. With these cars that have done 240k+, did they have their batteries replaced?
  5. So then... I aint new to the forum but am new to the Prius. Bro was looking for something like a VW passat etc as a taxi but then a fellow cabbie mentioned the Prius and that a few are now being used as taxis due to the local mpg. this was on Fri night. Found one for him within an hour of looking on Sat morning and it turned out it was miles away in Brighton but as we have family there i got a cousin to go and check it out for us. Report back was the car is very nice condition etc and drove perfect so went down yesterday from Bradford taking 4 hours... spent only 1 hour there to do the deal on the car and then drove 4 hours back. Man im shattered this morning! So drove it about a bit yesterday myself and was supprised to find i was very impressed with it. :) Car details: late 2007 model on a 57 plate Silver T3 Auto CVT 40k on the clock with FSH (although is due a service now) 1 previous company car owner 12 months mot Exterior the car is mint bar a couple of minor things that you cant see unless you are close and looking for it. Was up for 7,400 and got him down to 7,100 as it is needing a service and i think thats a very good price going by what i have seen on the market. So a couple of questions. Batteries... i hear they need to be replaced every 100k and the chap i bought the car from said they can be had for 500 pounds. Is this true? Secondly, with regards to the service what exectly is involved? Same as a normal car? Cheers in advanced. Fizz

  11. Toyota Carina 2.0L Pull Off

    If you think about it, how many Carina E drivers do you know under the age of 50? Wont be many on here that have launched a Carina E thats for sure. With regards to what revs you need to be just on the inside of the wheel spin mark so its all about trial and error. Then you have to think about feathering the throttle if it does start to slip a bit just to try and gain some momentum and grip before fully letting go of the clutch.
  12. There is a top place in Bradford who do full wraps as well. Always see expensive German motors there and people rate them. It's near Mumtaz resturant on great horton road.
