  1. Chris_munday posted this thread on the subject last year: Here I've quote his post below and attached the image he took. It worked for me - have a good read of it and give it a go.
  2. It should fit your SR180 without any problems. It will fit Auris 2007-2009 models.
  3. I've had major improvements with it too, the engine never idles rough and goes through the gears seamlessly - it my opinion it works and I know it will work for anyone - it is definitely not Snake Oil - used it for years and at every service.
  4. I understand where you are coming from Scott. According to Parkers the MPG for this model is 52 mpg. I am only now getting somewhat close to it, having managed 49.8 mpg. I'm not sure whether 52 mpg is even achievable irrespective of miles done. a) Only get the car serviced in an independent garage, not the local Toyota dealership so the ECU has never been updated nor taken for any recalls as of yet - just don't have the time to (Window Switch recall - is there a new ECU update available for this model, that I am unaware of, which can give even better mileage?) b ) I've never been one to floor
  5. That's fine, the point I was trying to make was that since owning the car in 2010 and driving tens of thousands of miles a year in it. I only ever managed approximately 300 miles per tank. This has now gone up to 500 miles per tank out of nowhere... It's a huge difference for me personally as I don't know what caused this increase in miles... I apologize if this thread has caused any confusion..
  6. This is a very interesting subject. One that has completely baffled me since my last full service. I have had my car since 2010. It is a Toyota Auris 2.0 D4-D 1AD-FTV. Ever since owning it 4 years ago, I have had dreadful MPG. Even with driving at 30mph in 4th Gear or 65-70mph on the motorway in 6th Gear - I could only ever achieve around 300 miles before I got the low fuel message on the dash board. To say this was frustrating is an understatement I'd rather not use bad language. In my mind I thought I had tried everything there was to try in order to try to improve the mileage or at lea
  7. Hi Nick, One of the garage owners I go to regularly (who is also my Uncle) has a respectable relationship with a prominent Toyota Dealer in Manchester, United Kingdom that always supplies him with Toyota Parts - they know him very well and he was able to get hold of the parts from them - I provided the Part Number he got me the price - I just go to the Dealership and tell them that such a person sent me and they bring out the parts straight away at the highly discounted prices.
  8. That is true. They will fit perfectly on both.
  9. Yes - It is possible to order from Toyota directly. Dual Exhaust Part: PZ439-E9715-00 Rear Skirt Part: PZ439-E9463-AB Nice car Steve - I love the full package but I can't see myself putting it on my car as its Black and it just wouldn't stand out as good as it does on yours! ^_^
  10. I was quoted £185+VAT for the SCV Valve and £90+VAT for labour + update to ECU. £330 in total incl VAT if I remember the total correctly. It was from RRG Salford Quays. I only seem to have the problem during the colder months, but pressing the clutch down, turning the key and continually giving it gas for about 5-10 seconds always works for me.. Then.. even if I turn the engine off and on again straight away the problem is non-existent unless the engine is off for several hours. During Autumn, Spring and Summer the car is fine - I think I'll pass on this for the moment.
  11. That has been tried with BG244 Diesel Fuel and Injector Cleaner regularly, the performance is completely different to not using it in a positive way. However eventually those same issues pop up once the temperatures dip during the colder months. I think the best way around this is the tried and tested method of getting the Valve and ECU update.. Yes it's costly - but nothing else will work... Can anyone provide a place where I can buy this valve at a decent price? I'll get the ECU update from Toyota.
  12. I suppose - I'll leave this option open for some other time, the fog lights look good on that car too - is it yours?
  13. Hi there, Apologies for the almost a year and a half later - I didn't realise. It set me back about £90 for the black rear skirt for the dual exhaust and £250 for the twin exhaust system and an extra £15 for the bolts. Can anyone shed any light on this video: I'd like to know if anyone has attempted to put the angel lights on the Auris as in the video, it looks awesome..
  14. I'd like to know that aswell :)
  15. Having spent alot of time trying to figure out what is going on with the rear lights. I still can't work it out. The fuse is fine. I'll be taking it to my local garage maybe they can shed some light on this issue... Will let you know how it goes.
