You know what. Off the top of my head I can't remember ha ha. I think it's a tiny baonett type. But could be wrong! 

My cars still away for a major service but when it's back I'll check for you👍

Cheers mate

Says the listing has been removed! 

The bulbs in the console are called 12v grain wheat bulbs. You cut them to size then wrap it round the bulb holder. That way when it's twisted back in it makes a connection on the circuit board!

Finally got my back box! It will do till I get more funds together. Don't think it will make much difference sound or performance being just the box

Will do Paul. I know not the smallest of parts! 

Got ramps here at home etc, just to cold to be lying on the floor. Especially if the two bolts are a pain to come off! Thinking....start the car first (get the bolts warm) soak em in wd40. Wait 5mins then go at it ha ha

Well.....cars back from the major service! She's had done

Starter motor, lift bolts, auxiliary belt, rocker gasket, oil sump re sealed, blitz oil filter, engine oil, gearbox oil, trd plugs (as you already know), maf cleaned. I think that's it you know! 

Here's some pictures my friend took at his garage, Toyota Specialists. Brilliant service as ever.

And out of all that done. Most improved is the Gearbox. Still that same Rolla big gap in gear changes but this time very smooth. Not as clunky if that makes sense! Defo worth the money that Comma stuff. Can't wait to order the MWR Short Shifter and see what it's like then. 

Next on the to do list is fit this Back Box and then K&N Typhoon after extending the maf wires. 

Think I'll do the back box first cos it's easier, quicker and see if any improvement or sound it makes! One mod at a time 👍

Wow your certainly not short on plans.😎

Will the MWR short shifter fit uk 2zz's?? If so I'd definitely be in the market for one.

I know ha. Must be mad! Not worth that much these days. Yep it fits, but a company in Holland buy off them. So the shipping cost are for Europe and not world wide so cheaper. 

Infact I'll ask after Xmas for a group buy👍

Is the sump new or the standard one? Looks cool haven't actually seen the sump closeup on a 2ZZ-GE before. Shame its completely unbaffled with only a small baffle plate under the crank but don't think it does much in regards to oil sloshing to one side during hard cornering.

Nice big service done though which is all good, just what the T Sport deserves! :thumbsup:

Just the standard one All cleaned up! One thing at my friends garage is anything that's removed always gets a de- grease. I've never seen under that sump either!

I tried today to fit the backbox. No joy! Can't get the two bolts off. Had a wire brush, wd40, even started the car 1st to get the bolts warm. Nothing. Not a single turn on either one. 

Going to get my mate to fit it at his place.

Anyone have any ideas how to keep steering controls when moving to an aftermarket stereo. 

Im seeing a connects2 adapter but im not quite getting it 🤔

Brill mate. Glad they fit! 

From what I've heard the adapter only works on the later face lift models. I hope I'm wrong cos I'm looking at the minute and mines a 52 plate 🙄

Should work a treat then👍

I want an Android one to go with my phone so I'm thinking either one from pumpkin or joying. After loads of searching these makes have ace reviews on Amazon and YouTube. Even though they sound rubbish! The Specs are right up they're 😊

Thats a bargain for that buddy. I've been looking at the pioneer ones and the reviews are really good. The only down side for me is cos I'm greddy and want everything on a head unit. A pioneer one will be about £500-£600. Can't justify that! 

Not will also swapping the speakers and under seat sub too. 

What size is yours? Cos the original one is about 8 inches long and about 4 n bit inches wide.

Can't fault you with the bike mate. You get more enjoyment out that than the Rolla 😉
