  1. The issue with bull or nudge bars is that it is illegal to sell/fit non-approved bull/nudge bar products (ie without the 'e1' marking) in the UK. See the attached - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/bull-bars - especially the embedded PDF document. As far as I'm aware the fact the nudge bars may be CE tested doesn't meet the approval standards. Legally you would also need to notify your insurer of the fitments.
  2. Hello Alex - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  3. Photos may help.
  4. From what Beyond the Blue has said, they're doing a lot fewer than your mother's mileage (approx 90-100 per week).
  5. Which is why the Auto Express/Carbuyer Watchdog case was rejected by Toyota
  6. One factor was that Toyota needed a 1.6 diesel for the Auris and Verso to compete effectively in Europe. The hybrid technology agreement between Toyota and BMW centred on shared research into lithium-ion batteries.
  7. One issue you will find is that your Corolla Verso was only exported to Europe for approx two years, before being replaced by the quite different Turkish built Corolla Verso in 2004.
  8. Neither does the Aygo. Perhaps the same supplier provides mirrors for both.... Toyota may or may not have addressed the issue with the revised Yaris range due later this year.
  9. Depends how much one wishes to pay - eBay or Amazon may be most cost effective.
  10. In which case it would be covered by the 12 year corrosion warranty, rather than the extended warranty. The case linked to was first featured in Auto Express, the sister magazine to Carbuyer - Dennis Publishing tend to share articles between their mags. Sam is in Leicestershire, so the Consumer Rights Act may be the way forward.
  11. Under the 'MG - Morris Garages' banner, they've got an Austin-Healey 3000 ...... Having said that, SAIC (who own MG and Nanjing) own the following brands: Austin; Austin-Healey; Austin Healey; MG; Morris. Nanjing own: BMC; Princess; Vanden Plas; Wolseley.
  12. As far as I'm aware the extended warranty covers the mechanicals, not bodywork. If you bought it from a dealer within the last six months, it would be worth taking it back under the Consumers Rights Act 2015 - Otherwise see what your dealer says, and whether Toyota may consider a goodwill contribution.
  13. The insurer won't disclose why one occupation will have a higher premium than another. However, according to Money Which?, it is dependent on the experience that insurer has with previous customers in that occupation. My post from Wednesday gives an example.
  14. Does your profile need updating from the Corolla? Moved to the 'Wanted' section.
  15. As regards the tailgate, I had a similar issue with my last Auris. One of the struts had failed - replaced both under warranty without quibble.
