  1. Hi fellow toyota owners i need some advice following a recent minor prang. I came round corner where i live onto a minor side road where there was a stationery car in the middle of the road and i could not work out what he was doing so after some hesitation i decided to maneuver around him at which precise point he decided to reverse colliding with the rear passengers side quarter of my car leaving a scratch and a dent. We both exited our cars and he begun apologising over and over and we exchanged names insurance etc and he said he would phone me the following day. The next day we discusse

  2. The day finally came on 13th July 2019. My new car arrived to the dealership on Friday and after they added the Toyota protect to the outside and the inside, we picked it up on Saturday. I have to say, the pictures don't do the car justice in this case. I'm so glad we went with the red color because it's stunning! It looks great on pictures but has an extra WOW effect in person. I went all in on the car, 2.0 hybrid, panoramic roof, HUD. JBL and Adaptive suspension were the only things I didn't go for. I'll add some pictures so everyone can see 🙂 As for the car itse

  4. No problem ... in his opening sentience Don (Anchorman) says "I was recently reminded by our good friend Fujisan that as some 4.3s will be due for the first MOT this year that it might be a good idea to review this subject and I will pin it for future use" - i.e. the concern was raised some time in 2008 / 2009 when the first of the 4.3s, with their then 'new' AWD system, became due for their first MoT. A decade on we know from experience that it really isn't a concern - and probably wasn't then either - and MoT testers really do know what they are doing ... 🙂 The 'tutorial' is still usefu

  5. Hi - easy one I hope! The chunk in this photo has been there for ages and is not a problem (Toyota tell me). But the crack in the sidewall is new. Is it an urgent job? Or is it just normal? Thanks Glenn

  6. Mileage has a lot to do with how a clutch 'feels'. New cars always have super light clutches and then as the miles build up the pedal hardens. I've never owned or known a car where that has not been the case although quite what the precise reason is for that effect I'm not sure. My own Auris (same 1.33L) has covered around 63k and is 9.5 yrs old now and I would describe the pedal as 'moderate' but that got put into perspective when I drove a new Kia Picanto. You could press the pedal with a feather on that car. The biting point on mine is quite close to the floor and the take up is

  7. Joe, I used to use it very occasionally for looking at the apps and downloading Nav routes created on MyToyota journey planner on my PC. The apps have expired now (apart from a couple of free ones I think) so I can only use it for downloading the routes, although as Stephen said it's actually quicker using a USB stick.

  8. Hey bud, im new on here but not new to toyotas or modifying cars! Id immediately suggest a 4age engine and gearbox, very easy to work on and maintain, should fit with minimal fuss and make nice power for the effort etc. Youll want a donor car for the parts, including the complete clutch system inc pedal etc, a manual brake pedal although ive seen people cut the auto pedal down i wouldnt really recommend it, the cables and shifter mech for the manual gearbox, (dont forget the biscuit that covers the hole in the firewall the cables travel through)the engines wiring loom including the ecu, gearbo

  9. Be aware that while most policies don't hit the NCD for windscreen repair/replacement, they can affect the renewal premium (but not normally too much) and you are required to inform other companies of the repair/replacement if you get a quote. If they will do it, it's worth getting the chip repair done (IMHO) because it reduces (but does not eliminate) the chance of it turning into a larger crack, but also in the event the crack spreads after the repair, some companies (like Autoglass) vow to do the replacement free of charge. I had a small star shaped crack on my last car (a Gen 4 P

  10. My head unit connects to my iPhone hotspot automatically and as far as I can tell you get access to the Toyota Apps like Weather etc. and live traffic updates. I thought it was going to give me a google earth overlay to the sat nav, but you can only get google earth images when you are stationary which seems pointless. Also I thought the car created its own hotspot when connected, but from what I can tell people just jump onto my phones hotspot. I may be missing other things I can do, but thats what I use it for. I know I can connect to my home network from the garage, but I do

  11. Yes, that's what I use when I'm near a hot spot or on the drive at home as I don't have a data plan with my phone.

  12. Yes you are right thanks. After lots of searching the internet this afternoon i now think that the actuator is working correctly. I probobly mis-read your write up. I initially thought it gradually opened and closed rather than either fully open or fully closed .What i gather is that the arm is meant to be against the stop all the time until approx 3000 rpm is reached when the arm then moves away from the stop. when the rev counter drops below 3000rpm the the arm hits the stop again. This is happened so hopefully im now sorted. Need to get an emission test done as the replacement actuator appe

  13. My Avensis space saver steel wheel does not accept the normal wheel nuts for the alloys, very well. The alloys nuts are the same thread but have a parallel section that fits tightly into the wheel hole and locates the wheel precisely.The steel wheel is made for nuts with a small dome end and there is no hole for the nut to enter. The alloys nut on the steel wheel does not locate the steel rim very well, ok for a mile or two but not any distance. Other models may be different but you have to have to actually uses the space saver to be aware of this. I got a set of steel wheel nuts for about a f

  14. Availability/Spec is set by the factory and in the UK is largely dictated by Tax on emissions levels, where a wheel is not available it is usually because the addition will impact Co2 figures 1.2L Hatchback Icon: - TRK as standard - SW is an option Icon Tech: - TRK as standard - SW is an option Design: - TRK as standard - SW is an option Design with Pan Roof: - TRK as standard - SW is an option 1.8L Hybrid Hatchback Icon: - TRK as standard - SW is an option Icon Tech: - TRK as standard - SW is an option Design: - TRK as standard - SW is an option
