  1. The update can be coincided with a service but cannot be done at the same time as the service drains the engine oil and the update needs the car in ready mode throughout.

  2. I got my Churchill insurance renewal which renews in a couple of days. April was when I changed over my Churchill insurance from my Peugeot to the Auris and they had increased it to £622 based on what I would have paid last September with the amended details. With the Peugeot I was only paying £500. Anyway, this years renewal was £698 which is another £76 higher. So I was thinking that maybe they had increased it due to the non fault accident I'd reported just like ziauris had mentioned would likely happen. I just called Churchill saying I wasn't happy with this increase and asked if it was due to the non fault claim. In July they had told me on the phone that I didn't even need to report it to them unless I wanted to claim. The man told me no it's not to do with that, it was just that their rate had increased for everyone. But he said he'll see if he can bring the price down. And he did, to £550! And then by telling him I don't think I'll be doing more than 5000 miles a year (previously insured for up to 8000 miles a year) he was able to reduce it further to £515! Also, when my car was a repaired a few weeks ago, they had it in their garage about 5 days. They did a fantastic job and I got given an almost brand new Seat Leon courtesy car brought to my house which was really nice to drive. I was like "where's the handbrake??". But it was one of those flat square electronic levers. I loved that. They put on a new bumper, new metal beam behind it, and knocked the boot floor back into place perfectly. Seamless paintjob. It looks spot on, you'd never know anything happened. While it was in for repair I decided to get some non accident related things done. There was heavy grazing on the front bumper nearest the front driverside wheel and some bonnet misalignment from some presumably previous accident (just about visible in my old sig photo), someone had keyed along the left side of the car, and there was a small rusty area that had been badly patched on the left side near the rear wheel above where you'd jack the car up to change a tyre. I had inherited those things when I bought the car. He repaired all of that for £400 and now the car looks brand new. Very good paintwork, you can't see the join. Couldn't be happier. 🙂

  3. This is the official Toyota tech doc tor ACP and AA retrofit: BE-00439T-TME It has detailed step by step instructions to follow. It also states that retrofit needs to be registered with the warranty department and if customers attempt to do it themself and brake the headunit, replacement will not be covered under warranty. As Devon Aygo said, dealer can / will have to order 3 usb sticks from Toyota parts. However, according to the tech doc, other 'non toyota supplied' USB sticks can be used and tech doc has instructions how to do it. Actual files are available for the download now, so hopefully dealers will be installing it soon. Booked my service on 8th of October, will see how it goes.

  4. Had the mil light on today with the error P0420. Looking it up says cat isn’t fully functioning. Is this due to an O2 sensor? It’s a 2001 2.0 vvti Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. I will follow this closely, for tips on getting the best out of my Carina II.... lol 2sav

  6. It's a very generic code, but yes an o2 sensor issue is a likely cause, along with an exhaust / catalytic converter failure.

  8. On my old gen1 plugin, Hybrid Assistant reported the usable HV battery range as 19% to 82%. When charging from 20% capacity, the gen1 was fully charged (82%) after taking on about 3kW.

  9. Heh, each to their own. But the Corolla has both a tachometer and an eco meter. As it ships all you need to do to make the Corolla display the eco gauge is to press the left up or down arrows. That will display the eco gauge right in the centre of an analogue speedometer where you can read both simultaneously 😉

  10. In the UK the sound generators being fitted to vehicles with new Type Approval from July, are intended to help those who cannot look where they are going - those with visual impairments (ie partially sighted and the blind). Rather than being a nanny state reaction, the legislation is there to help people with disabilities. It isn't rocket science to understand that these people may have difficulty identifying that a vehicle operating almost silently is in their vicinity. Back to the topic subject.

  11. My understanding was reversing beeps are extra loud to alert pedestrians that a silent car is reversing. I do find it annoying but better safe than sorry!

  17. Toyota rescue (AA) arrived, started the car and did battery tests. Said that 12V battery wasn't holding its charge and i should take the car to Toyota to get it replaced under warranty and not to turn the car off because it probably wouldn't start again. 😮

  18. Ho hum. After 1 week the 12V battery is low and the plugin won't start up. Toyota rescue are on the way.
