  1. When using the mains charger (the one you plug into a normal mains socket) there is no way the charger knows what the mains circuit is rated at. It will try to pull (up to) 2kW regardless. This can be interesting when charging at a campsite with a 10A electricity hookup.

  2. Just be aware that the above would be the US market owners manual, which may differ from the European manual.

  3. Anything in the last 30 years is DIN rail across Europe, i have come across all sorts but never seen this type, any addition is going to be governed by the incoming supply

  4. The UK used different mains fuses to the rest of Europe :) They're Diazed cartridge fuses. We used to use them in Ireland as we mostly followed German standards except for BS1363 domestic sockets (Schuko was also used inconsistently in the past), but RCDs were commonplace by the '80s here and most households have been retrofitted. I'd only expect 6 or 10A fuses to be on lighting circuits (not sockets), but I'm not sure what is expected in Sweden. Maybe the wrong fuse was installed? There doesn't seem to be any indication of what rating fuses should be in what slots. Either way, you're best off contacting an electrician or someone who understands local household wiring better than us.

  5. There are slight differences with the mk1 phase 2 rear seats though not only are they available in dark grey trim but the adjuster assembly has a different part number but may still fit the earlier model as the mounting frame is probably the same or could be made to fit.

  6. From what I see is that they are the same for both 3 door and 5 door French build to French build as they would be for Jap build to Jap build (ie French to Jap and vise versa are not interchangeable) So please check vin numbers for the first 3 digits are the same eg VNK to VNK or JTD to JTD. Hope that makes sense.

  7. I don't see why not as I would imagine only the front seats to be different, when I get a minute I will check part numbers and let you know for sure.

  8. I guess that is Toyota's problem if they lost sales. The blog , I saw it, somewhat amusing to me that software integration with your phone, is more important to some buyers than a feature rich, reliable, economical, good looking, comfortable, and safe car. Having said that, my last car was also a joy to drive, and had an engine, onboard computer, wheels, and comfy heated leather seats. And was reliable. But that was it. So to be fair, having blue tooth was one of the major wow factors for me! I think if we bought the car and were promised a rapid upgrade, that would be annoying. But when I bought, it was unknown whether the car could be upgraded, so I don't feel misled or disappointed at all.

  9. I too suspect software but just wanted to check with others in case I am doing something numpty. The previous problem the firmware was upgraded for was a known one of traffic jams being reported in the millions of miles instead of the mile or two they should have been,

  10. Yes, I think we bought our cars knowing that Android and Apple were not included. It is a bonus that the cars are up gradable. The current situation is acceptable It is not as though the cars are different to how they were when we bought them. They are still safe and working just fine.

  11. So while within warranty they're trying to fleece poeple off basically.

  12. That seems rather under-handed! Keep maintenance costs low until enough people are buying, then jack the price?! Not cool. As servicing costs factor into TCO for many people, is this mis-representation, if by their own admission they did not fully account for costs?
